Publisher's Summary

When a shocking scandal exposes Southern secrets...

As the blazing heat of summer gives way to sultry September, a shroud of suspicion settles over Noble's Crossing, a sleepy Alabama town. Nothing is as it seems - and never will be again. Lane Noble Graham stands accused of murdering her ex-husband. The one man who can help, Johnny Mack Cahill, vowed never to return to the town that scorned him - or the woman whose love he knew he didn't deserve. 

...no one is safe from cold-blooded murder.

From the rusted-out trailers on the wrong side of the river to the stately pillared mansions along Magnolia Avenue, everybody has something to hide - but one secret could make Lane and Johnny Mack the next targets of a twisted killer who's struck once and is bent on striking again....

Story Great but Too Much Sex!

I love Beverly Barton’s plots but there are too many graphic sex scenes. They seem out of place in these books. I just fast forward lol.

The title should have warned me.

Personally, I do not need pornographic narrative in the books I enjoy reading or listening to. I will never get the connection aw to why sexually graphic context was deemed needed when trying to enjoy a good story. To me sexual matters are beautiful but personal, intimacies between two, not the world. Please, just tells an interesting and intriguing story.

storyline was good

The story was good, but the writing was a little juvenile for me. I would have preferred a more modern tone.

More soap and romance novel than who dun-it, detective story

Enjoyed the performance. But too soapy and romance novel for me. I you like well described intimate scenes, you’ll like this book

The writer kept my attention from beginning to end. Thrilling to the point that I couldn't put it down! The storyteller did a remarkable job especially with all the various voices!

Classic Beverly Barton

Excellent narration. This story is exactly why Beverly is one of my go to authors. The story takes off quickly. The characters have depth. Beverly has a unique way of creating people you love to love, along with people you love to hate. The best part is that the villains always get what's coming to them.

Perfect book to pass the time

This would be perfect for a plane ride or a lazy day by the pool. With enough plot twists to keep you guessing, but not enough to make your head spin. the characters had depth and evolved throughout the book. With so many characters, both male and female, Eileen took an impossible task and made it look easy.

If you are looking for a book you can't put down and a story that stays with you long after the closing credits, then this is not the book for you. However; if you simply need one to keep you engaged for a few hours or so, then what are you waiting for?
