I was fortunate to receive this novel from Netgalley.com as an Advance Reader Copy, in exchange for an objective review.

Dr. Annabelle Schwartzman is back again, as she teams up with Detective Hal Harris to help solve the murder of a young woman found naked at a local park. As they arrive to survey the scene, Anna realizes that she saw this woman in passing the night before while retrieving the victim of an accident. Haunted by the chance encounter and worrying about the child that the woman had in the car with her last night, Anna & Hal pour themselves into this case – where the discover ties to a vicious assault 14 years ago.

Meanwhile, Anna’s abusive ex-husband is out of jail and Anna fears that it’s only a matter of time before he comes for her. Her apprehension is only appeased by the daily text messages she receives from a private investigator who keeps tabs on Spencer’s whereabouts. So far, he has remained far away, but Anna fears the worst.

As the investigation continues, more deaths occur, all seemingly related to a young Muslim woman, and her former roommate at Berkeley University. As Anna & Hal attempt to solve the puzzle, they find themselves increasingly attracted to one another, and have a chance to explore that attraction during the holidays.

Finally, a simple signet ring helps put the pieces together, but danger is even more close to home than ever before…this book will leave you breathless with a desire to climb into the pages and warn the characters of danger, and leaves you on tenterhooks with a stunning cliff-hanger ending… Now I must wait, very impatiently, for the next book in the series!! Fabulous read!! Love these characters!!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
