A Classic Tale of Romantic Suspense…Set in Port Jackson, Alabama in 1991
Past sins haunt this town…In the steamy dog days of an Alabama August, Private Investigator Teresa Worth is struggling with two new cases while living with the personal anguish of trying to find her young daughter, who has been kidnapped by her ex-husband.
Wells Talmadge, the son of wealthy and powerful locals, has his own family problems, including illicit love affairs, gambling and a possible takeover of his chemical company.
When murder strikes, Wells is caught between blood ties and justice. He means to beat Teresa to the murderer, but her skills as an investigator, and his attraction to her, threaten to tear his world apart.
Wells underestimates Teresa, but she misjudged his powers, too, of seduction and attraction. As she closes in on the killer and finally has a solid lead to finding her daughter, a hurricane hits, threatening everything she cares about.

A Suspenseful Hit for Ms. Gamble!
The story of Wells Talmadge (a long-standing Southern gentleman and business owner) and Teresa Worth (cop turned private investigator) is a lively one with murder, kidnapping and an unexpected romance. The mystery kept me guessing until the very end with a lot of exciting twists and turns that kept me flicking the pages on my Kindle so fast and loud that I woke up my sleeping hubby! Until the end I wondered where the title of the book came from and I do love an intriguing title to a suspenseful story. Altogether, this was a romantic suspense that kept me so glued to the story that I resented daily chores and duties that threatened my reading time. Ms. Gamble certainly knows how to write romantic suspense!
