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....

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.

Unnecessarily long

Repetitions, predictable dialogue and outcome , full of adjectives.,and too much sex. I could have written it myself.

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, must purchase. 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?

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 🤦‍♀️😬

Enjoyable

This was a good read but near the end became more of romance vs mystery/thriller, which seemed to make the story drag a bit. Overall it was good!

Note to narrator

They’re pronounced “Severe” (like the adjective) -ville and muscadine like “dime” hut with an “n”.

finally! the truth behind Jazzy and Reve's births

I was really eager to get to this book to discover the truth behind Jazzy and Reve's births and was not disappointed! When we left off in book 2, Jazzy and Reve suspected that they were twins...even though Jazzy's Aunt Sally swore that Jazzy was the only child of her dead sister. Reve decides to use her vast resources to get to the truth...starting with a DNA test to prove that they are twins. We also learned in book 2 that Jazzy's bf, Caleb, was the only surviving grandchild of Jim and Reba Upton...now we get to see if Ms. Reba will accept Jazzy as Caleb's beau. After all, she's always disapproved of and thought the worst of Jazzy and her teenage relationship with Jamie. As the private investigator digs for the truth of Reve and Jazzy's parentage, a serial killer is targeting red heads...will the twins learn the truth before one or both of them become the next victim? This was a great series that forced me to binge listen to get the whole story!!! Definitely a re-read/listen series.
