"Superbly crafted stories like these are the reason romantic suspense is my go-to genre." -USA Today
Enigmatic and aloof FBI profiler Lincoln Frazer falls for a woman hiding dark secrets...
When old evidence turns up on a fresh corpse, ASAC Lincoln Frazer is determined it won't delay the execution of a convicted serial killer. But when more young women are brutally slain, it becomes clear--this new killer is intimately familiar with the old murders.
Former Army Captain Dr. Isadora Campbell concealed a terrible crime. After her mother's death, Izzy resigned her commission and returned to the Outer Banks to raise her rebellious teenage sister. It doesn't take long to realize someone knows exactly what she did, all those years ago.
With pressure mounting to reopen the old case, Frazer will use any means possible to catch the killer. Thrust together during the investigation, he and Izzy find themselves reluctantly attracted to one another, and begin an affair. Izzy's confession of her secret past drives Frazer away as he struggles with her deception. The killer strikes again, and now the race is on to save Izzy, and any chance of a future she and Frazer might have together.

This book was TOTALLY AWESOME!! I did not want to stop reading (went so far as to carry my phone to bathroom just to continue reading!🤪). The build up of interest/trust between Linc & Izzy is steady but not so fast to be unbelievable. Their pasts define so much of their personalities & beliefs. And just forget about thinking you know “who dun it” because you’re wrong!! EXCELLENT STORY LINE AND SUSPENSE!! I WOULD GIVE 10 STARS IF POSSIBLE 🥰
Who actually done it?
This book definitely left me guessing big time. Every time I thought I knew what Izzy had done, it back fired on me, every time Kit played the bratty sister, I had her pegged - wrong.
Lincoln Frazer discovers early that a piece of jewelry found on a murdered girl could be trouble and doesn’t want that info in the hands of basically anyone but a super small circle.
Izzy Campbell is groaning through life. Having to give up a military career to come take care of her teenage sister brings her past rearing into her face. She has a rental Cottage next to her house so Frazer stays there while trying to put the pieces together.
Both Lincoln and Izzy were dealt a bad hand while teenagers and that forged who they are now. The “who done it” in this story spun all over the place. I was wrong several times.
This series gets better each book. That’s amazing.
Enjoyed this book! Great characters, great story.
