Police Detective Stella Dane is investigating the murder of a young woman whose body was found in an alley. It’s obvious she was tortured before taking an overdose of heroine. What’s worse is that Stella knows the victim personally.

And then a second abduction and another body found, much in the same way as the first one.
Wildlife Biologist Mac Barrett arrives back in town to see his dying father, only to find that he is too late. All of his family live in Scarlet Falls, but because of some past history … and a huge secret that he carries …. he’s been staying away.

Seeing Stella again makes him yearn to set down roots, but first he has to share his secret. Stella has always had a ‘thing’ for Mac, but because he stays away for months at a time, she’s never let herself get too attached to him.

When the killer targets Stella, Mac is determined to protect her.

I have enjoyed this romantic suspense series. Mostly suspense… with just enough romance to add to the story and not detract. I like watching the relationship between Stella and Mac grow amidst all the danger that surrounds them.

My rating is 5 stars … both for this story and the series as a whole.

Many thanks to the author / Montlake Romance / NetGalley who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
