Two months ago Sawyer Bennet killed his wife, threw her body into the swamp and buried the knife behind the shed. The only witness to the murder was his daughter Melanie, but she hasn’t spoken since that day…So what the heck is Amanda Rockport doing, applying for the job as Melanie’s nanny?

Well, she refuses to listen to rumor, for starters. The evidence against Sawyer is merely circumstantial and until he’s in jail the rumors are just rumors. Besides, Amanda knows Sawyer isn’t the murderer, because Melanie still adores her daddy, which wouldn’t be the case if she saw him stab her mother…

But someone is determined to see Sawyer thrown in jail. And if that means hurting, or even killing, his new nanny in the process, so be it.

Woohoo, another good Harlequin Intrigue story. Good story, tight plot, good pacing, wonderful characters (with a surprising amount of chemistry), good suspense and intrigue, and rather nicely done romantic subplot. The only hiccup is the fact the villain was glaringly obvious, but still, the buildup more than compensated for it. The ending was a little different than most (he let her go), but it still worked.
