When Sheriff Bree Taggert discovers the body of a young woman floating near the bank of the Scarlet River, a note in her abandoned car suggests suicide. The autopsy reveals a different story. Holly Thorpe was dead long before she dropped off the bridge and hit the water.

As Bree and her investigator Matt Flynn delve into the case, secrets in Holly’s personal life complicate their efforts to solve the murder. Holly left behind a volatile marriage, an equally divisive relationship with her sister, and an employer whose intimate involvement with Holly was no secret. Each one has a motive for murder.

When Holly’s sister is terrorized by a stalker’s sick prank, and the prime suspect turns up dead, everything Bree was sure of is upended and her case goes off the rails. When the killer strikes close to home, Bree and Matt must race to solve the murders before one of their own becomes the next victim. 


This is not a stand alone book. I highly recommend reading the previous ones.

I love Bree Taggert, Matt, and everything in this book. The mystery was good and it kept me guessing. I thought I knew who it was and I was wrong. I like that we saw a bit more of Bree’s home life with the kids and Dana but the progression of Bree’s and Matt’s relationship is slower than a sloth crossing the street! 

Thank you to NetGalley, Melinda Leigh and Montlake books for allowing me to read this book. I received an advance copy and I share this review voluntarily.
