The other issue is with continuity. The secondary characters of Larry and Marlie Muldoon are brother and sister, but during a critical conversation with the sheriff Marlie refers to her brother as her "Uncle Larry". This was jarring as I then had to go back to clarify the relationship.
Overall, this is a warm touching read with enough suspense in it to keep the story going. I liked the story and characters and look forward to further works by Shiloh Walker.
I enjoy most of her books but I am especially fond of the Hunters series and I wish she would write more.
Anne-Marie Kincade has been in love with Jazz since her big brother Alex first brought him home so many years ago. Jazz was her hero, she'd been aware of the abuse he suffered at home and admired his strength. She'd been devastated by her brother's death in a drunk driving accident but she's never believed that Jazz was to blame. Anne-Marie is so smart she's been able to skip grades and become a pediatrician at a very young age. She loves kids but the only man she's ever loved is Jazz. Now that he's back in town, maybe she will finally convince him that she's more than the bratty little girl he remembers.
Jazz is determined to uncover the truth behind his best friend's death. Nothing about the accident makes any sense. He lost not only his best friend, but his surrogate family as well. Now that he's back in Briarwood, he's reconnected with Anne-Marie and it looks like things might finally be going his way. It doesn't take long for `Jazz's curse' to follow him and he's caught between blaming himself and trying to figure out who's trying to set him up. Will Anne-Marie's faith in him be enough to help him through this latest ordeal?
Shiloh Walker has definitely earned each and every one of her fans with her delectable tales full of unforgettable characters, suspense, and undeniably intense sensual tension. Jazz is one of those characters who's glaringly tortured, vulnerable and absolutely loveable -while still being utterly sexy. Anne-Marie is bold, daring, and impossible not to like. She's never failed to believe in Jazz and I found that truly admirable. I love the fact that I could not figure out who was trying to set Jazz up for murder - or attempted murder, I had suspicions but they all seemed too obvious. Ms. Walker kept my attention through this entire story and I'll definitely keep a look out for more of her books - and rereading some of my old favorites.

Anne-Marie Kincade has been in love with Jazz for as long as she can remember. She missed her brother like a part of her soul was missing, but in her heart she couldn't believe that Jazz was at fault. Now that Jazz is back after a sixteen-year absence, she is determined to help him find the answers he needs to put this horrific event from their lives to rest. As they dive into the records, and start researching the events that led up to the tragedy, things are not adding up. Adding to the frustration is Jazz's inability to remember everything that happened. There are gaps in his memory with no specific answers, and as they slowly inch toward the truth, someone makes it known that the truth should stay buried in the past.
The author flexes her writing muscles bringing together a suspenseful story, engaging characters, and very sensual moments. Anne-Marie gives unconditional love so freely to Jazz that he finds it humbling and unworthy of it. Jazz is a character that you can't help but feel for. Nothing in his life has gone right, and you just want to give him a win for a change.
