A stranger who looks vaguely familiar buys a Grisham novel from Liz. Paul Haggerty, a former cop, made a vow to Rick that he intends to keep. He found Liz via the Internet due to a site managed by her mother. As he and Jenna fall in love, he realizes he may have inadvertently brought danger to the woman he now cherishes.
This a strong romantic suspense thriller though why Rick's killer acts after two decades of walking the streets even if he risks eventual conviction is hard to grasp. Still the lead couple is a delight and the support cast adds the depth of small town Missouri into the mix. Fans of terse tales will be IN HOT PURSUIT of Suzann Ledbetter's fine novel.
That all changes when a stranger enters town. Paul Haggerty is also a cop, and he has spent over two decades searching for Liz. Now that he has found her, what will happen. They are attracted, yes, but giving in to that could spell trouble. Jenna has spent too many years avoiding trouble to let something like love change that. It is not only her life that is getting more complicated and interesting though. Murder and scandal heat up the town, calling upon skills she has not had to use in a very long time.
***** Bringing together suspense and the magic of the ordinary in her trademark fashion, Ms. Ledbetter creates a new and believeable world filled with eccentrics who could easily be your own next door neighbors...
