In this heart-stopping romantic suspense, USA Today best-selling Author Kennedy Layne brings you a pause-resisting story that will have you staying awake all night long.

Gwen Kendall spent 10 years in the Navy and used the last four to create a life for herself she could be proud of away from the confines of her overprotective family. Being the only woman in the Kendall clan tended to be a bit overwhelming at times.   

Chad Schaeffer had been hired on to help restore an old farmhouse for one of the returning Kendall siblings. He’d heard about the trouble the family had encountered and honestly didn’t want to go anywhere near their properties. He had a change of heart when he saw the most recently returned Kendall sibling stepping out of her car with a key in her hand.  

Gwen had waited a very long time to have a place to call her own, just as she had waited for the right man to share her life. One night of seduction convinces her she’s found both, but someone wants to take it all away. It’s been said that old houses retain a piece of each person who has lived there, but she never counted on the dark shadows wanting a piece of her.   

Series description: Their homecoming wasn't so welcoming. Four brothers and one sister each gave 12 years of their lives to serve their country and fulfill their family's legacy of service. As each of them return to their home of record, they weren't prepared for what awaited them - an unforgivable sin that has been hidden for 12 long years. Secrets and lies are concealed in the dark shadows of the very town they were raised in, and the Kendall family will have no choice but to rely on one another to unravel the sinister evil that they all hold the keys to unlock.

Soooo hooked on this series

I’m so hooked on this series! The story revolves around the 5 Kendall siblings and some missing girls from 12 yrs ago, in the small mid-west town of Blythe Lake. Over the course of a few months, the people of Blythe Lake have acknowledged that there is a serial killer in their midst. It started 12 yrs ago when a teen girl disappeared and their worst fears were realized when 15 bodies were recovered from the bottom of the lake. The 4th Kendall sibling, Gwen, has returned home just as her mother had always hoped. With keys to her own property in hand, Gwen is ready to start her own business and renovate her house. She is NOT ready for the attraction to contractor Chad Shaeffer. Chad is trying to deal with the stigma of his eldest brother almost committing arson at one of the Kendall brothers property...he has no intention of giving in to his attraction to Gwen. The heart wants what it wants and soon Gwen and Chad are dating. We expect an HEA...but the serial killer has other plans. Will Sheriff Mitch Kendall finally catch this killer before anyone else is hurt? You’ll have to read/listen to find out!
The narrator does a fabulous job and I’m hooked on the series and his voice!
