Rajani Seshadri | 16 comments I'm looking for a book - crime/romance. Need author and name of the book. The heroine is a police detective - I think her name is Samantha, step-daughter of a senator. The hero is a senior police detective and they are hunting a serial killer. He has four sisters and remembers their stockings drying on the shower rod. He refuses to get involved with her as long as they're working on the case. A short romantic scene in the stairwell of the police station.

A book away from an episode of hoarders (fidgit77) | 257 comments I've got some author suggestions but I don't know this book so you might just want to browse their bibliographies and see if something jumps out at you.

Chelsea Cain Joyce Carol Oates Kay Hooper Ruth Rendell

Ann Perrigo | 19 comments Oh, I was thinking it might be by Kristen Gore, but I checked her titles and there's nothing quite like this. It reminded me of a subplot in Sweet Jiminy. It still feels familiar to me, though. Will continue to think.

Ayshe | 4226 comments Someone to Watch Over Me by Judith McNaught? Searching inside the google book Samantha/Sam's stepfather is senator. Looking at the reviews it appears to be the secondary romance in the book though.

Rajani Seshadri | 16 comments Thanks Ayshe. But no it's not that one. I have that book. Please keep trying !!

Rajani Seshadri | 16 comments Hi Ayshe. It maybe - I'll check again. I'm going to be so thrilled to find it. Thanks a ton!!!!!!!!

Juels | 2476 comments I agree with Ayshe. This sounds like Someone to Watch Over Me by Judith McNaught. There is a part in the book when McCord is talking about his 4 sisters and their pantyhose in the shower. He makes a comment "Until I was ten, I thought shower curtains always looked like legs with feet."

Good job Ayshe!

Juels | 2476 comments You're welcome. Good thing Ayshe suggested it. I had forgotten about that part. Read this years ago.

Ayshe | 4226 comments Great if it was the book. Thank you for the supporting evidence, Juels :)
I just noticed that part in google books (I linked above to) and looked at the reviews and thought it could be.
