Overview

Best-selling author Maddy Fitch, while researching material for a new novel, returns to her hometown of Harbour Falls to investigate an unsolved disappearance that has haunted the tiny Maine coastal town for the past four years. Although the case has gone cold, Maddy soon discovers that the prime suspect, Adam Ward, is hotter than ever.

The sexy, secretive Mr. Ward now makes his home on an isolated island near the coast, so Maddy takes up residence nearby to find out why this enigmatic man lives in such a secluded place. Is it because the missing person at the heart of the case, a young woman, was engaged to Adam at the time of her disappearance? Did the prime suspect perhaps move to escape the town’s scrutiny, or is he hiding something much more sinister?

As Maddy plunges into the case, she and Adam are drawn together. Should she fight her growing attraction to a possibly dangerous man? The mystery deepens, and the list of suspects, people who all had reasons for wanting to see the missing young woman gone, grows. Maddy hopes that by solving the mystery Adam will be proven innocent of any involvement, and they can then move forward with their relationship. But as she uncovers clues that begin to lead suspicion away from Adam, new secrets emerge that leave her questioning everything. Maddy continues to close in on the truth, threatening to blow the lid off the whole mystery. But what she doesn’t realize is that she’s actually caught up in someone’s very dangerous game.

Lies, secrets, deceptions. In Harbour Falls, nothing is ever what it seems. This steamy novel immerses the reader in an intricate storyline that will keep them glued till the very last page.

    Maddy, a mystery writer, goes back to her hometown to solve (and write about) the disappearance of Chelsea Hannigan and the prime suspect in that case, reclusive millionaire and Maddy’s crush, Adam Ward. I have a love dislike relationship with this book. I love the mixture of romance and mystery. I even love the remote setting on a private island in Maine. But I dislike the decisions made by the main character Maddy. She frustrated me from the beginning. Maddy starts out by “telling” us that she is investigating the Harbour Falls Mystery in secret, then proceeds to ask fifty million questions which make it obvious that she is investigating the Harbour Falls Mystery. Maddy, the mystery writer, cannot figure out who the killer is even though all the clues point to this person. Instead she falls into a really clichéd trap and almost gets killed herself.




    S.R. Grey spends a lot of time building up the setting and fleshing out the backstory of all the inhabitants of Harbour Falls. As a result, I was pulled into the story. Grey did and even better job of making Maddy a real person. However, the mystery itself is thin and when it is finally unraveled, although not what I expected, it also wasn’t as explosive as the build up led me to believe. Unfortunately, the “mystery” really doesn’t end and Grey adds a twist by creating a cliff hanger ending. Again, Maddy instead of doing the logical thing prepares to solve another mystery based on clearly false information. Oh well, I’m prepared to follow Maddy through another   Reviewed by Karon for Cocktails and Books.

    This book will have you guessing till the end!



    This is a story told from Maddie Fitch's point of view. Maddie is a mystery novel writter living in LA. She comes to her home town in Maine to write a novel about a Non-Fiction mystery.
    She wanted to get to the bottom of a cold case file of a disaperance. Chelsea was a beautiful young girl that was engaged to be married to the town rich kid Adam Ward. Seeming to have everything everybody in the town wanted. Looks, wealth and Adam. No one could understand how one night she just up and disappeard. So Maddie takes on the case. She goes to stay on a isolated island owned by Adam Ward.

    Who just happens to be the prime suspect in the crime. When Maddie starts to dig into the bottom of the mystery, that has haunted the town for so long. It
    seems everyone turns into a suspect or has a reason to hate Chelsea.

    Adam and Maddie start up a romance that is knock your socks off hot. But has you wondering the whole time did he do it. The ending will blow you away!
    The writting in this novel sets you up big time. The chapter will end with cliffhangers and little hints. It will have you pulling out your hair and trying your hardest not to "cheat" and read the end.

    Ms. Grey pens "Harbour Falls" in a plot that is filled with steamy romance and suspense. The story line started slow, but picked up fast with it's twists and turns and made it harder to put down. Beware, there is a great cliffhanger at the end that will make you want the next book fast.

    Disgusting!

    Why is it that no one can write a good clean novel anymore. All the gutter language is not necessary. Maybe some people think it makes a better read, but it doesn't. I will not read any more books by this author. I didn't finish this one. I thought I was going to read a mystery. Instead it's just gutter trash. I only gave one star because I had to.

    Great Read

    Loved this book from the minute I started reading it. Loved that it was a mystery but had some romance in it as well. I really can't wait for the second book in this series to come out. I can't wait to find out how Maddy's and Adam's relationship turns out and what the next big mystery is!

    A Must Read!
    Recommended by a friend, and I was hooked from the beginning. Dark and mysterious, from the setting to the gorgeous prime suspect, Adam Ward. It really turned out to be a page turner! I didn't know who to trust. Can't wait for the next book, Willow Point, and more Adam and Maddy.

    not so much recommended unless you like to be there when someone has sex.

    The book was a nice mystery but the sex that was added had nothing to do with the storyline.

    This is why I stopped reading NR.

    I really enjoyed this book and the mystery in it. But I was a little disappointed with the graphic sexual content.
    I don't think it added anything to the story line and could have been done in a way that would leave a little to the imagination. I also read the next in the series and felt the story was also good but the author added even more sexual parts not needed for the story. I could watch porn if I wanted to be that explicit and it was done rudely. I am hopeful that the next will center on the characters and situations rather than what she licks on him and he does to her. I belong to a three and half year running book club with approximately 12 women ranging from 25 to 76, 3 several nurses, 3 career ladies 3 retired and one banker and 2 homemakers. We have read many different styles of writing. Please tell the author she has good story lines and doesn't need to turn to smut. Thank you

    What a mystery! What a romance! Just what the doctor ordered to

    What a mystery! What a romance! Just what the doctor ordered to test my heart...

    Right away, you will fall in love with Maddy and Adam. She is a snoop and a gossip (for shame but it is quite interesting). He is the epitome high school boy crush grown into swooning gorgeous alpha male. Yeah! Remember that one guy in high school that you thought never knew you were alive? That's the one! The one you used to blush, stammer and would make you forget how to walk... and you never forgot him.

    Well, Maddy has come back to solve the mystery of what happened to Adam's fiancee the night before the wedding when she went missing; never to be seen again. The problem is that in order for her to get to the truth, she has to go and live on Fade Island... spooky in the Autumn months and owned by none other than Adam.

    She thinks she is pulling the wool over his eyes... but he is a genius and nothing gets by him. No matter what, Maddy wants to play it cool and search for the truth. I had to scream at her a couple of times ( maybe more) because it was obvious he was going to find out what she was doing and she was going to be in trouble.

    You will not be able to put this book down. Even though this is a self contained story, it does leave you thinking of other secrets that may not have been resolved. This will lead you straight into book #2. Believe me, you will want to read the entire trilogy. It is that good!

    I looked forward to reading this book because it takes place in

    I looked forward to reading this book because it takes place in Maine, a place I love and have visited often. However, I was extremely disappointed. It's a poorly-written bodice-ripper disguised as a mystery. Frankly, I find that the "relationship" between the two characters borders on creepy. There is not trust, everyone had secrets, and Maddy has serious issues with her self confidence. Which is why she ends up being the helpless victim all the time. The book reads like it was written by a sex-starved 15 year old.

    I am such a fan of this author's writing. She really writes beautifully. This romantic mystery was the best I've read this year. The foggy Maine island setting is simply the perfect backdrop for this story and was almost a character in the book.

    Author Maddy Fitch is doing research for a novel. The research takes her back to her hometown which is full of some very interesting and suspicious characters including the #1 hot suspect Adam. Their relationship is good yet complicated by Maddy's suspicions but that doesn't pour cold water on their sizzling love life. It's clear from the beginning than many people don't appreciate the fact that Maddy is investigating the disappearance of a woman from years ago.

    This is a very well plotted mystery that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to any romance fan!

    This had it all, hot rich guy (Christian Grey move over), cute mystery writer girl, spooky isolated island and an ending where you have to read the next book immediately! I think it was a .99 cents bargain, will be reading more of her novels for sure!

    I¿m a sucker for a good mystery. Toss in a romance, and I¿m gold

    I’m a sucker for a good mystery. Toss in a romance, and I’m golden. Make the protagonist an author who is delving into a real mystery much like she would craft her books – and that is a must read. 




    Although it starts a little slow,  the background provided helps to engage the reader into the mystery, and fix Maddy as a character worth knowing.  Confident and strong writing create a world that is familiar and yet lively, with a hauntingly intriguing mystery at the core.  With a cast of characters so complex and multi-layered, all with their own secrets and agendas, the mystery is truly one of the better ones I have read in a while.




    With characters that have faults, insecurities and secrets, the possibility for the “who did it” is great, and the mystery that Maddy decided to investigate is not the only shady dealing in this little town.  Determining friend from foe, innocent from suspect was truly a puzzle, for both Maddy and I, and even when the book ends, there are still several unanswered questions.  All to be picked up in the proposed books 2 and 3 of this series. 




    With an incredibly steamy and sexy romance, the frustration that Adam must have felt just oozes through the pages as the author keeps you waiting to see if they will have their moments, or just dance about in a haze of sexual attraction and excitement.  A truly unique work that was a page turner, with a climax that was unexpected and clever.  An author to watch, especially for the subsequent books in this series. 




    I received an eBook copy from the author for review for Full Moon Bites tours. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
