Overview

PI Lucy Maddox, former thief, liar and have-not, spent her formative years as a runaway on the streets. She’s worked hard to rise above her past, and now leads a respectable life using her survival skills in a more honest way. Yet when the reporter responsible for getting her off the streets goes missing, she risks her respectability to steal a thumb drive. Lucy believes the drive, belonging to her missing friend, holds incriminating evidence against the last person the reporter interviewed before vanishing.

Unfortunately, Jack Finnegan, nemesis and royal PITA, catches her leaving the scene of the crime, the office of a judge who is announcing his candidacy for governor in three days. Jack is the man’s top aide and campaign manager. Jack dealt with Lucy during her years on the street when he interned for the judge. Back then Lucy was a lying hothead who acted before thinking and refused to let the system work for her. Her accusations have come at the worst time. Jack’s not about to let lies and innuendos ruin his employer’s good name. He believes, like everyone else, the missing reporter is on an undercover assignment and isn't checking in for obvious reasons.

Jack joins forces with Lucy, mainly to prove her wrong and to keep an eye on her. From the reporter’s thumb drive they uncover a ring of high school girls whose behavior could only be characterized as bullying. Then things get crazy, starting with a harrowing near-miss that’s just too coincidental to be accidental. Plus, they’re being followed.

Jack and Lucy’s mutual dislike for each other disintegrates into mutual respect and their attraction builds. As both are drawn deeper into the mystery, they struggle to keep their emotions in check. And when they uncover the truth about the games the cruel girls were playing, Jack and Lucy realize they have fallen victim to Deadly Misconceptions.

Meet the Author

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Sandy Loyd considers herself a Western girl through and through. As a sales rep for a major manufacturer, she’s had the chance to live and work in some fabulous places, including South Florida. She’s traveled extensively throughout the US, and has a million stored memories to draw from for her stories. Sandy spent her single years in San Francisco and considers that city one of America's treasures, comparable to no other city in the world. Her California Series, beginning with Winter Interlude, are all set in the Bay Area.

After living on both coasts, she now calls Kentucky home, where she writes full time. Yet, as much as she loves Louisville, she misses the mountains and has to go back to her roots to get her mountain and skiing fix at least once a year to enrich her muse.

She’s recently become an empty nester and has published eight books: four contemporary romances and four romantic mystery/suspense/thrillers. She strives to come up with fun characters—people you would love to call friends. And we all know friends have their baggage and when we discover what makes them tick, we come to love them even more. She tries not to skimp on the romance. And because she loves puzzles, she doesn't skimp on intrigue, either. Yet, whether romantic suspense or contemporary romance, there is always a warm love story woven into her work along with enough twists and turns to entertain any reader.

    Suspenseful

    I enjoyed this book. It was a fairly quick read at around 290 pages. It was dramatic, suspenseful, and engaging. Lucy and Jack have a past and are forced to work together to find her friend. There were a few parts I found myself skipping over, but I enjoyed the book.

    Romance novel

    I thought this was a mystery novel. It's a romance novel that remembers every now and then they're trying to solve a mystery. It's not bad for what it is.

    Sigh

    I am about half way through the book and finding myself skipping whole paragraphs. The story is good but i am getting really tired of about every other paragragh being about glancing at each other, flutters, lust, erections, lusting after each other, blah blah blah. However, if it weren't for all of that, the book would probably only be 100 pages.

    Deadly Misconceptions

    Good story. It was a well written, long, romantic mystery. I liked that Lucy and Jack didn't jump in together right away, like most romance books seem to do. Four stars just because I could have done without Lucy constantly bringing up her past on every page and then Jack brushing it off when she brings it up. Also the ending was a bit rushed for me.
