What's a girl to do when she falls in love with the man whose mission it is to bring her down?
With the murder of her only sister, Sara, just a few months past, Lily Valier-a woman of beauty and substance-tops the sheriff's list of suspects in small town Maine, and for a very good reason. Dear old Dad willed his fortune to Sara and only Sara, leaving Lily to fend for herself. However, with no murder weapon or witnesses, the evidence against Lily is only circumstantial.
Enter P.I. Aiden O'Rourke, black-haired and blue-eyed, charged with gaining Lily's trust and learning her secrets, all to finally get the goods on her. Things move fast and feelings run deep, yet when Lily discovers the truth about Aiden, everything begins to come apart.
Aiden's torn. Despite his feelings for her, Lily is the most logical suspect, with a great big fat motive. Except something's not quite right. Aiden trusts his instincts and they're screaming at him to have a look at a former suspect with far more to hide than first appeared. With little left to lose, Lily decides to stand her ground, but staying put has its consequences when the murder weapon finally turns up-and it's Lily's gun.

This was my first book by this author and I loved it!!! The main characters in this story were vary well written. While the male lead character is a bit of an alpha male he doesn't over shadow the female. The conviction of the faith that there is an after life was so nice to see. The bit of mystery in this story was just enough to keep you guessing how it would end. This was an overall great book that I think everyone would love!!!
Great read with lots of suspense and romance. Lily is accused of murdering her sister and Aiden is there to find out the truth. At first he gets close to her without telling her his motives and she finds out. So of course, we get the drama from that. Plus, we have get to see who the killer is and if Aiden will choose his job or his heart.
There is nothing like falling in love, getting to know someone, thinking you will have a future with that person only to find out they aren’t as they seem. Oh the heart breaks just when you need someone in your corner you find you are in it alone. This is a very fast moving exciting thriller full of mystery as the author twists an amazing story that keeps you spellbound. The who did it grows as new people come to light but what about the person who said they saw Sarah pull the gun? Just when you think you may have a handle on the killer the author throws another tail spin your way. No one was more surprised than I to find out who the killer is but the author isn’t giving anything away she is holding her cards close just in case anyone decides to look over her shoulder she wants everyone to be surprised as I was. Aiden is getting in deeper when he starts to have feelings for the would be killer. He is thinking things aren’t adding up but will he find his answers before the women he is falling in love with finds out what he is up to? Lily is a sweet woman who my heart went out to but everyone else thinks she killed her sister. The cops believe it so much they are bring in someone from outside to get close and get her to tell all. He is her knight in shining armor when he saves her from an attack. Slowly he builds her trust sucking her in and letting her lean on him. You can guess how well she took this when she finds out the man she might love is against her and trying to prove she is the killer. I was torn between liking Aiden and wanting to slap him for even thinking Lily could be the killer. He really is a wonderful guy just doing his job but still there were times I didn’t care for him much and other times when he was the man of my dreams. It is a slow start but it doesn’t take long for the reader to be pulled in to the mystery as the author throws first one twist and then spins it around in a turn you don’t see coming. The plot is wonderful, the suspense even better and the thrills are just chilling. There are some surprises you won’t see coming as well as a delightful romance that really touches you. I was so very hooked that I can’t wait for the next book from this author.
What would you do if you were accused of killing your sister? Living in a small town, it's hard to escape the rumors and looks people give Lily. Everyone has a theory on why they believe she did it, but nobody wants to hear Lily's side to the story. So Lily does what she can, she builds her walls up and continues on with life. With only circumstantial evidence nobody can prove she did anything. Aiden O'Rourke has made a living catching the bad guys that the police can seem to find. His life is all about finding the truth when nobody else can see it. When he's hired to get Lily to confess to murdering her sister lines start to get crossed and feelings start to enter the picture. When Lily discovers Aiden's true reasons for trying to get close to her, will she find it in her heart to give him a second chance and help find her sister's real murderer?
