It would just figure! Eve Bailey would have the rotten luck to drop in on a body and a thirty-year-old mystery. And darn it all, Carter Jackson "would" be the sheriff determined to take on the cold case--"and" Eve. In high school he had been one tall drink of water, and nothing had changed--not his smoldering eyes, his cowboy swagger or the way Eve felt about him. The Whit ...more

I'm glad I read a few books in this series out of order because if I started with this one, my reading would have ended with it, too.

The characters had some traits which I do NOT like - being secretive to the point of bringing physical hard to someone, and being so 'independent' (pigheaded) that no one can help.

Aside from this, the Reveal wasn't all that earth shattering, nor did it reflect the actions of those who wanted things quiet. It was more of a 'big whoop' moment.

However, the sense of
i coulnt even begin to guess what the ending could have been. and the author stayed true to the main character. now i am hooked have to read next in the series to know what happens next.

I remember now why B.J. Daniels is my favorite author of the delicious purple intrigue books. Likable characters, solid plots full of plausible danger. Love!

The core mystery of this novel is one of identity which is important to everyone. The main character wants to know who she is and to whom she is connected. Her search for this knowledge sets in motion secrets that dangerous people do not want revealed.

Small town full of secrets, everyone seems to have at least one life-changing secret. No one is being fully honest to each other. All the turns of the plot just brings up more secrets.
The suspense is just that, the secrets piling up. At the end some are revealed because gun is against their head. Some events of the story never get conclusion.
The romance is also barely there, high school couple who still years later are carrying torch to each other, one kiss, but nothing is solved, nothing talk
