Publisher's Summary

What she doesn't know ...

The victims are all found face-down in the murky waters of the creek that runs through Cherokee Pointe, Tennessee. They are naked, except for the black satin ribbon tied around their necks. And each murdered woman shares a single characteristic ... they are all redheads...

Just might ...

Socialite Reve Sorrell has come to Cherokee Pointe seeking answers about her family history and her shocking connection to wrong-side-of-the-tracks Jazzy Talbot. With their stunning good looks and shining red hair, the two are mirror images of each other - twins abandoned at birth and raised in very different worlds. And whoever left them for dead on a cold night 30 years ago isn't about to let them uncover the truth now....

Kill her

As a serial killer leaves another chilling calling card in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, Reve turns to Sheriff Jacob Butler to help her unravel the potentially deadly secrets of her past. But someone will do anything to stop her...someone who won't make the same mistake twice...someone more cunning than she knows...and closer than she ever could imagine....

Old Fashion Values

Catalog Plus is a great deal=free!! How cool to listen to the 3rd Book in this series by Ms Barton, who never seems to disappoint. Yes, if you want books 1&2, you can now download and borrow. This book re introduces characters from book 1 & 2, and book 3 fills you in just a bit to make you understand what has happen to bring you to the present. Soooo if you do not love this book, you do not need the other books to complete this tale. The publishers summery is spot on so no need to give away details. Ms Gavin has a rich voice so she brings this author’s work to vivid life. Her interpretation of the author is so well done. Great team. I am a newly minted fan of Ms Gavin and I am listening to various authors she narrates eg Happiness for Beginners, I do use the 1.2 speed to match the tale.
Were my comments of help?

Regretfully awful

I don't even know where to begin. This author took what could have been a decent story and turned it into an earful of trash. The writing was awful, like a HS student's version of a mystery, wrapped in a truck stop sleeze mag, topped off with a really bad twist. Thank God I didn't pay for this. The only reason I kept listening was because I have to find out 'whodunit'. But, even that was a disappointment (LAME). And don't even get me started on the narrator! If I wanted to hear Betty White talk about nasty, dirty, hard-core sex...well, let's just say I never want to hear that, again.

Great read!

I truly loved this story. It kept me thinking and captivated my attention. However, I do want to say the pronunciation of Sevier County and Sevierville irked me. It's "suh-VEER" and "suh-VEER-ville" not "sev-ER." That is really my only critique.

Good mystery but see scenes too explicit!

I gave this 3 stars because I was unaware there would be such explicit sex scenes and vulgar language. The reader should be made aware of this ahead of time. The mystery storyline could stand on it's own without the sex scenes and language. I am disappointed in this book.

Surprising!

I loved this book. I couldn't stop listening. The ending was surprising and I didn't expect it. I love that the book showed the ability to forgive.

9 parts fifty shades - 1 part mystery... PASS

I deleted this after 30 minutes... and had already endured multiple raunchy, overly descriptive sex scenes. The final nail in the 30 minute coffin: it's SUH-VERE-VILLE not SEVER-VILLE. It's painfully obvious when research and editing are thrown cautiously to the wind 🤦‍♀️😬
