Who knew Sandra Brown could write sexy and scary so well together?
My neighbor did, I suppose. She has been pushing this book off on me for the past year and I finally gave in and read it over the holiday. So glad I did!
New York publisher, Maris "Matherly" Reed, receives an intriguing manuscript regarding two college kids and an unsolved murder from someone identified only as P.M.E. She feels compelled to meet the anonymous author, so she travels to a remote Georgia island and begins snooping around. On a cotton plantation she finds razor sharp Parker Evens, a man who is concealing his true identity and his ties to Maris.
There were several subplots and twists to this story that kept me on the edge of my seat, including an interesting subplot with Maris's sleezy husband, Noah, and her nemesis, Nadia. Like I said - this one is a real nailbiter. I am off to get a manicure now. =)
