When Reef McKenna is accused of murdering Karli Davis his sister Piper refuses to believe him capable of the murder. All of the evidence points to Reef; it looks like an open and shut case. Piper is determined to find the real killer even if it means putting herself in the killer’s sights.
Landon Grainger is like family to the McKenna’s, one problem; he is the one who has to arrest Reef and risk breaking Piper’s heart. Landon has known Piper since she was a child but recently his feelings for her have changed. Piper is no longer a child, and has become the woman that Landon has fallen in love with. Landon is determined to keep his feelings to himself believing that Piper could never feel the same way about her lifelong friend.
With reporters swarming all over the story the last thing that Gage McKenna wants to do is enlist one of them to help investigate the murder. Gage believes Darcy St. James is just another reporter trying to climb the ladder of success. Even though sparks fly every time they are near each other Darcy may have resources that will help in the investigation.
As the investigation progresses they find that Karli Davis was not the person they thought she was. As they slowly unearth Karli’s life they get closer and closer to the truth that may just jeopardize all of their lives.
I did not want to put this book down! This was a great suspense-filled novel that kept me turning the pages until the end. Add in Piper and Landon’s romance and I was in book bliss! The author explores her characters feelings and reasons behind the behavior they exhibit. I’m looking forward to the next installment in the series. There are still so many relationships to be explored and there are definitely more McKenna’s that need to find peace with God.
I received my copy for review from NetGalley.
