Overview

Lucy Sadler Caldwell is a successful true-crime writer. But the one story she’s never been able to come to terms with is the murder of her own mother—until now.  She’s returned to Dobbs Hollow, Texas—the hometown she fled seventeen years ago—to finally expose the real killer.

After a bullet took out his knee in Houston, Detective Ethan Donovan found himself without a lot of options. That’s how he ended up as Chief of Police in Dobbs Hollow. Lucy sure isn’t asking for his help—she’s not big on trust—but he can’t help feeling a strong desire to come to her aid.

And though Lucy is armed to the teeth, she will need all the help she can get. When she starts digging into the past, she unearths a psychotic killer who will stop at nothing to silence her forever…

Laura K. Curtis has always done everything backwards. As a child, she was extremely serious, so now that she’s chronologically an adult, she feels perfectly justified in acting the fool. She started teaching at age fifteen, then decided to go back to school herself at thirty. And she wrote her first book in first grade. It was released in (notebook) paperback to rave reviews and she's been trying to achieve the same level of acclaim ever since. She lives in Westchester County, NY with her husband and a pack of wild Irish Terriers, which has taught her how easily love can coexist with the desire to kill.

Seventeen years after her mother’s murder, true crime author, Lucy goes back to her hometown for answers. She encounters a very sexy sheriff, Ethan, and explains to him her intent to reopen her mother’s case. While the sheriff is fairly new to the town of Dobbs Hollow, he insists on helping Lucy find out the truth, not just because he was knocked straight stupid the minute he saw her either.  This small Texas town holds many secrets. As Lucy and Ethan start to uncover them, bodies start turning up, death threats towards Lucy turn in to actions and the list of suspects keeps getting shorter and shorter. Can they find the answers Lucy is looking for, or will the past literally come back to bite them in the proverbial ass? This story was incredible. I was hooked from start to finish and kept me guessing through the entire book. I love how the relationship between Lucy and Ethan didn’t eclipse the mystery. There were so many different directions going on with the story. Just when I thought I had it figured out, I was wrong.  The suspense in this book was palpable. I was literally biting my nails reading it was so good! I don’t want to say much more and spoil the book but I will tell you one thing, Laura K. Curtis is an author to look out for. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a solid romantic suspense read. ***I received an ebook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
