Back home in Serenity, Jamie Lynn Henderson's determined to prove her brother was framed for the town sheriff's hit-and-run death years ago.
But as she encounters dead end after dead end, Jamie Lynn discovers someone will go to any lengths—even murder—to bury the evidence. Her only hope of staying alive long enough to uncover the truth is Shane Colton, the late lawman's wary son.
Shane's world was shattered by one senseless act that he can't forgive.
But somehow he is drawn to protect the lovely woman trying to free her brother from prison.
If they don't work fast, Jamie Lynn's single-minded quest might lead them both into the killer's trap.
The constant danger and terror of the attacks, keeps the reader on their toes, but the great humor, that is spread all over the story, balances the intense menace, and brings light to the tale.
I enjoyed the characters, and their interaction in the story. They have a connection, Jamie and Shane especially are drawn to each other, despite the circumstances of their lives. Kyle, Shane's son, is a delight, and Useless, the dog, definitely steals some of the attention.
The action and danger is constant, and the attacks becoming more and more frequent. The secrets and conspiracy theories of the old crime start to come to the light, and the badly handled investigation from before, suddenly gets new light, information no one in the town expected.
Jamie and Shane work on the investigation, their banter is fun, and the attraction adorable. How fate is integrated into their lives, and into the story, is natural, and genuine, the way he, and his mom, share it with Jamie logical and practical.
Enjoyable and fun story, I liked the suspense, characters, and the action in the tale. The romance came fast, but the connection between Shane and Jamie was legitimate and true
