One of the best .99 books I've read. I could not put the book down. You are pulled into the story at the start. Recommend this book. Can't wait to read more from Ms. Lamb. Purplelady72

I did NOT LIKE THIS BOOK! It isn't even that the mystery of the book isn't good, because I was intrigued to see how this would end. It is more of the characters that get on my nerves. Jessie, the main character, annoys the hell out of me. It was hard for me to like her and I did not think the writer did a good job of creating chemistry between Jessie and Clay. I was looking for a little mystery and romance and this just did not do it for me. I would not recommend this book.

Jessie Rhoades relocated to Florida to escape a bad marriage and to further her career as the city editor of the Fort Myers Star News. Her top journalist reports on cops frequenting local strip joints while on duty. However, word is that the story is a hoax and careers could be ruined.

Jessie is driving when her brakes fail leading to a crash. She is rescued by freelance reporter Clay Christopher who rushes her to the hospital. Not long afterward, New York based editor Steve Crank asks Clay to investigate the police scandal and possible hoax. Pretty much retired since his beloved Ellen died, Clay makes some cursory inquiries, but soon finds Jessie has given him a reason to live just as he has revived her personal life. However, someone wants her dead as evident by her sliced brake line.

Though in some ways the villain is obvious even with clever disguising by Joyce Lamb, this is a strong investigative romantic mystery. The entertaining story line provides the reader with two levels of tension. Will Jessie and Clay overcome their respective past relationships to become an entity with her as his professional boss even as the audience will wonder if the heroine will survive the assaults on her life? Readers will appreciate this deep tale rooting for the lead couple to make it.

There are a lot of players in this novel which makes the reader pay attention;esp. since they are all interlinked somehow. Good suspense and sweet love story also.
