Some days life is wonderful. Other days it's murder.
Former Marine August Reyes is home for good, haunted by images of bloodshed. He meets up again with Elle Styles, the girl he's never been able to forget.
When August was eight and Elle was six, she changed his and his mother's lives before she and her widowed mother left the Wisconsin vacation town. Twenty-two years later, she's returned to Trouble Bay with her four-year-old daughter, but they're only staying for six weeks. Elle and August are different people now. He sees life through darkness, and she sees it through light. And light and dark don't mix well.
Someone else was changed by Elle when she was young. A woman who lives by her own rules. Rule Nr. Two-Don't let anyone cheat you-is in play now. And this might lead to Rule Nr. Three: Don't kill anyone... unless killing is necessary.
The town of Trouble Bay is about to live up to its name. Life there can be murder... Even when you're falling in love.

Rules of Love & Murder by Edie Ramer is a story who should be a TV series. Ramer writes interesting characters with intriguing backgrounds and connected through family or living in the same town. The hero and heroine of the story are well developed and Ramer takes us on a ride following them from childhood to adulthood. The story tugs at your heart in so many ways from the time Elle and August meet when they were children to the end of the story when we get our Happy Ever After. I so enjoyed Elle's personality. She is so smart and has such a zest for life. She lights up a room and is so what August needs since he is broody and life has tainted him. Time doesn't change their true feelings for one another. I adored the way Ramer wrote their love story. The additional characters add quite a bit to the story. They are crazy and eccentric and self-centered and well, there was a murderer among them. Things did not turn out the way I thought for some of them, which made it entertaining. Ramer writes a great romantic suspense story in Rule of Love and Murder that will pull at your emotions and have you turning pages to see how the story unfolds. I recommend you give it a try!
Rules of Love & Murder by Edie Ramer Love & Murder Series Book Two August Reyes' life changed when he was eight years old. A six-year-old girl came into his life and saved him. He would never forget that bouncy force of energy with her bright red hair. She was a light in his darkness and years later, she is still his light when he's fallen into even a deeper darkness. Elle Styles and her mom moved from Trouble Bay when she was six, but now she's back. And it still feels like home all these years later. Only life has gone on without her. Like the boy who became a man. A man she no longer recognized. Another great story. A touch of romance, real life and suspense. The characters were so well written. It brings out emotions like dislike for the rich snobs who think they can get away with anything they want...and usually can. A character the reader shouldn't like and yet do. The Truth of About Love & Murder and this book are both stand-alone stories that take place in Door County, Wisconsin. Book three will be Raining Love & Murder and will be Chuck's story. **Sensual content and language
