Summary

A Wall Street Journal best seller.

Sheriff Bree Taggert is blindsided by a killer’s devious plan in number one Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Melinda Leigh’s novel of escalating shock and suspense.

When Sheriff Bree Taggert discovers the body of a young woman floating near the bank of the Scarlet River, a note in her abandoned car suggests suicide. The autopsy reveals a different story. Holly Thorpe was dead long before she dropped off the bridge and hit the water.

As Bree and her investigator Matt Flynn delve into the case, secrets in Holly’s personal life complicate their efforts to solve the murder. Holly left behind a volatile marriage, an equally divisive relationship with her sister, and an employer whose intimate involvement with Holly was no secret. Each one has a motive for murder.

When Holly’s sister is terrorized by a stalker’s sick prank, and the prime suspect turns up dead, everything Bree was sure of is upended and her case goes off the rails. When the killer strikes close to home, Bree and Matt must race to solve the murders before one of their own becomes the next victim.

Well worth the Wait!

Great continuation of the Bree Tagert Series! Love the writing. The suspense is great and not that easy to figure out. This story surprised me! Also, not too much sex but just the right amount of tease. Leaves the reader to fill in the spaces.
Thank you Melinda.
I’ve listened to all of your books and will eagerly await your next.

Narration of this series needs some work

The story was very good and once again, I couldn’t predict the ending! Love it! I really like this series but the narrator has such a challenge with the male characters. Not only does she go overboard with trying to differentiate between male and female characters, but Matt constantly sounds brooding or sleepy, even when she reads “Matt exclaimed!!” She’s not reading for context AT ALL. It’s super distracting, especially for a suspense novel. she does it for the female characters as well, but the male ones are so off that it makes it even more pronounced.

Volume is so erratic it is hard to listen.

I am on chapter 3 and so annoyed. The narrator volume is all over the place. If I set the volume for the narration, I can't hear when she reads Bree or Matt's voices. If I set it for Bree and Matt, the narration hurts my ears because it is so loud. Very frustrating.

Good Story Line

I really like Melinda Leigh’s Morgan Dane and Bree Taggert Series. The plots keep you interested and the characters lives keep you routining for them.

This particular book get poor marks for the narrator. Each time Matt’s voice was used it was a sad male vocal. It was like a woman with a deep voice mumbling. I could barely make out the words!

Male lead voice was so weak

The voice of Matt made the character sound stoned the whole time. It was hard to hear the dialog and hard to get past the apathetic sounding voice.
The story was good.

Narration very much needs an editor

One minute the narrator would talk like she was an announcer in a ball stadium, next she'd be whispering unintelligibly, especially when she was reading Matt's lines and often Bree's. If I turned up the volume to hear Matt, I'd be deafened with the next words she said. Does anybody listen to the narration before the audiobooks are published? I've listened to this narrator before and I don't remember this problem. This same person is narrating Melinda Leigh's next Bree Taggert book, which is going to make me hesitate to buy it. This one was so frustrating and distracting, I'm not sure I can stand this again.

An author once told me she had no control over narrators. That's too bad. I'm sure it can affect sales which the author misses out on.

Otherwise this was a good Melinda Leigh book.

Unpredictable.

I do not want to live in this township. There is way to many blood thirsty people living there.

A new Sheriff, a dead body...

Bree is the new Sheriff in town and of course a dead body is found. During the investigation, all sorts of information comes to light slowly.
The characters are nicely developed, likeable and the story flows easily.
Enjoyable storyline with a few twists.
Narration was done really well.
I would recommend this book.
