This is a two-part story written by Melinda Leigh with Kendra Elliot. Book 1, by Author Elliot introduces us to the town of Solitude Police Chief and his fiance and assistant, Stevie, who are to be married within days. All of the planning must take a back seat when there is a murder at a campground in the small community. The victim is a famous TV star which brings the paps like a swarm of locusts. Solitude has had more than their fair share of tragedy and there is nothing simple about this investigation. Book 2 picks right up where 1 ended and I don't think this can easily be read as a standalone novella. The chief of police and his new wife managed to be married despite every effort of a yet unidentified villan to create havoc with a fire and one bad act following another. Following the wedding, Stevie's brother-in-law is supervising the accused murderer until his transfer. An accident, injured deputy, missing suspect as well as missing witnesses, attempted murder with non-stop action. Just when you believe you understand what is happening, another twist or revelation humbles you. There is absolutely no place where it is safe to put this story down and get a drink or any other sort of reading break. The story demands to be read. It needs to be told.
