This was a book that once I started reading, I could not put down. Having read the first book in the series I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this, the next one.
Once again, we are with Jill Shannon in her new home in Phoenix. Now Jill has met up with the charismatic Conner Manning, the only son of former Arizona Governor, Pierce Manning.
All is going well for Jill. She has a small daughter born after the murder of her former husband, policeman, Alex Shannon, with whom she lived in Seattle. Now she has reinvented herself and is planning marriage to Conner when links to her very secret past begin to creep into her present.
She is plagued/hunted/chased by a Phoenix Police Detective, David Shaw, who is convinced that Jill is somehow linked to the recent murder of reporter Joe Gaines. According to CTV footage, Jill was the last person to speak to Joe and the next morning he was found dead in his hotel room.
We are introduced to Kat married to Luis who is somehow involved with the Mafia and because of this she and her daughter Ana are at risk.
So, another story told with a great plot, well developed and believable characters and all the attention to detail we have come to expect from Chris Patchell.
I strongly recommend this book to those who appreciate a well-told, well-conceived story.
Note – I was given a copy of the book to read by the author, and I choose to write this review.
