Kat Riley is the owner of a successful nursery.

Kat Riley has wondered for four years what became of her husband. He simply disappeared one day and with no body the case remains open.

Honestly, I think that this book would've been a lot better as a thriller instead of a romance and Grant was the killer.

Mysteries annoy me when suddenly the person comes up with no hint and no idea that they'd be the one doing it at the end.

On another note, Grant was incredibly unprofessional. I wish he would've been fired because honestly? He deserved it. I felt that he was taking advantage of...more

Janice Kay Johnson is the author of sixty books for children and adults. Her first four published romance novels were coauthored with her mother, also a writer who has since published mysteries and children's books on her own. These were "sweet" romance novels, the author hastens to add; she isn't sure they'd have felt comfortable coauthoring passionate love scenes!
