Samantha Reid has bought an old dry-cleaning establishment with plans to refurbish the building, update the equipment and open for business. But she and her friends find more than she bought with hard earned dollars. There's the inevitable junk left over from the former owner's packrat days, and a roll of undeveloped film. Vacation pictures? Nope. Photos from a decade-old murder involving an entire family, with the only survivor, Ryan Davidson, poking around, attempting to solve the crime against his family. Two quirky animals, interference from someone who wants to keep the case closed, and too much attention for Samantha twist into a plot for more murder-and romance. You'll enjoy this story, and don't expect to put it down in the middle. It's a great read, all the way to the end. Reviewed by Audrey Hebbert, M.A., author of Green Light Red Light

Shocking photographs of a decade old multiple homicide are discovered in Samantha Reid's new store. Like it or not, Samantha is involved when Ryan Davidson--the last surviving family member--comes calling. In his eyes she recognizes another wounded soul struggling to rebuild a life shattered, and cannot help but be drawn to him. But Ryan isn't the only person who comes calling, and Ryan and Samantha have no idea where or how this brutal killer strike next. Evidence of Murder is seamless--strongly plotted and multilayered with characters that breathe and bleed. Every chapter brings the unexpected. A gripping tale, this one will keep you up until you turn the last page. A good thing my husband loves to cook.

I tried, while reading, to help Samantha Reid and Ryan Davidson, unknown to each other until now, figure out what happened ten years ago that brought about the murder of Ryan's family. I couldn't believe all the twists the story took as the two unprofessional sleuths joined forces to piece information together that never had been uncovered by the local police... or had it? How can Sam's cat and Ryan's dog help? They each come up with their own contributions to pieces of the puzzle or are directly involved in helping the two escape from becoming a fatality. There was no 'sitting comfortably' in a chair to read, this was a book that demanded 'on the edge of the seat' reading throughout most of the book. Evidence of Murder kept me hanging and guessing through the whole story. Breathless, suspenseful, romance, wonderful.

Samatha (Sam) Reid has just bought a building she intends to turn into a cleaners. But first she needs to clean out all the stuff that's in the building. As she reaches for a box that's on the top shelf she slips and falls spilling the contents onto the floor. A friend that is with her discovers some undeveloped film. The friend offers to develope it with the thought that it's just some poor soles old vacations photos that will be lost to them forever. Later, Sam gets a call from her friend that the pictures are far from old vacation photos they are photos of a decade old murder scene. They decide the best thing to do was to turn them into the police.

Ryan Davidson is the last surviving member of the murdered family and bent on finding the truth. He decides to return to the old neighborhood to see if he can jog his memory about that fateful night. He gets caught sneaking around Samatha's building and that's how they meet. Sam and Ryan work together to find out who was behind his family's murder. Throw in a quirky cat and hound dog who really like each other and you have the makings of a great story.

I enjoyed Evidence of Murder and found that Jill kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next and ultimately who was responsible.
