"I didn't kill my husband "

But no one believed Laurel Hatcher. On trial for murder, Laurel prayed for a miracle. And she got one, sort of: a deadlocked jury. A mistrial meant going through the ordeal all over again, but at least she'd have more time to prove her innocence. And now handsome police officer Dan Ryan was on her side, determined to find evidence that would clea

This was more a mystery than a suspense, since there was hardly any suspense. The ending surprised me, so that was good. However, this book seemed too unrealistic (view spoiler).

Its one of those books that you cannot put down once you star reading. The interest is equal in romance and suspense. Unlike some other LIS books, this one was pretty heavy on the romance. I like how they have the cop chasing after the supposed criminal - not to catch her in the act, but to get her to fall in love with him!

Not only did the suspense kept me guessing on "who done it," but the romance kept me interested. I loved how the author allowed it throughout the whole book. I loved that the

WOW, this is a phenominal author! wish she'd write longer novels!! this is the 2nd of her's i've read this wk/. i'm going to try and track down more of them. this one so far is my favorite, as there were actually 2 different mystery plots going on, but you don't always realize it. which keeps you on your toes trying to deduce what facts go w/ which mystery, or if they're combined, or ...

again, WOW!!!

Wasn't a big fan of this one. It seems that it was written for extremely conservative Christians that involved too pure of a romance that it didn't even seem realistic, and way too much crying. I couldn't buy into it. No woman cries that much!

This is another suspenseful story by Susan Page Davis. The main character is accused of murdering her husband, and she has just about given up hope of proving her innocence. The ending was a surprise to me.
