From USA Today bestselling authors Jane Blythe and Amanda Siegrist comes a thrilling, keeps-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense filled with loss, obsession, and love.
He has a choice to make. Face his fear ... or watch her die.
For Rose Gowan the death of her best friend means she no longer has a confidante—someone to keep her secrets, someone who knew all her insecurities—and she’s not sure she’s brave enough to let anyone else in. Until she meets the detective working her friend’s case. He gives her hope for a future she had thought she’d never have, but he can be possessive, and she promised her best friend that she would never let anyone control her again.
Death is a part of life. It’s not something Detective Carter Dixson likes to dwell on, but working in the homicide division, he has no choice. He does his job, and he does it well. When his latest case brings Rose into his life, he finally has something other than his pain from his past to focus on. She makes him smile, his heart beat faster, and actually feel happy for the first time since his brother died. He’s not afraid of falling in love too fast. But he is afraid of one thing—losing Rose the same way he lost his brother.

“He has a choice to make-face his fear, or watch her die.”
What secrets lie beneath the murky water of the mysterious lake?
Detective Carter Dixson stopped dead in his tracks when he saw the lifeless body at the edge of the lake. Even though he was a seasoned detective, he was still shocked at the brutality of murder. He kept his eyes away from the water as he surveyed the surrounding area. He felt a chill go through his body and he had a feeling that this case would somehow become personal.
Rose Gowan was devastated by the death of her best friend, Evelyn. She was the closest thing she had to family and now she felt alone and adrift in a scary and dangerous world. When she met Carter he appeared angry and troubled but when she looked into his eyes, she saw caring and compassion. He promised her that he would find the person who murdered her friend and she wanted to believe him. Rose was attracted to Carter and she hoped that he felt the same way about her because he made her feel safe, happy and hopeful about the future.
What will it take for Carter to find the killer, while also keeping Rose safe and out of danger? Will Rose trust Carter with her heart and take a chance on love?
