Publisher's Summary

Sheriff Bree Taggert is blindsided by a killer’s devious plan in number one Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh’s novel of escalating shock and suspense.

When Sheriff Bree Taggert discovers the body of a young woman floating near the bank of the Scarlet River, a note in her abandoned car suggests suicide. The autopsy reveals a different story. Holly Thorpe was dead long before she dropped off the bridge and hit the water.

As Bree and her investigator Matt Flynn delve into the case, secrets in Holly’s personal life complicate their efforts to solve the murder. Holly left behind a volatile marriage, an equally divisive relationship with her sister, and an employer whose intimate involvement with Holly was no secret. Each one has a motive for murder.

When Holly’s sister is terrorized by a stalker’s sick prank, and the prime suspect turns up dead, everything Bree was sure of is upended and her case goes off the rails. When the killer strikes close to home, Bree and Matt must race to solve the murders before one of their own becomes the next victim.

Narration of this series needs some work

The story was very good and once again, I couldn’t predict the ending! Love it! I really like this series but the narrator has such a challenge with the male characters. Not only does she go overboard with trying to differentiate between male and female characters, but Matt constantly sounds brooding or sleepy, even when she reads “Matt exclaimed!!” She’s not reading for context AT ALL. It’s super distracting, especially for a suspense novel. she does it for the female characters as well, but the male ones are so off that it makes it even more pronounced.

Well worth the Wait!

Great continuation of the Bree Tagert Series! Love the writing. The suspense is great and not that easy to figure out. This story surprised me! Also, not too much sex but just the right amount of tease. Leaves the reader to fill in the spaces.
Thank you Melinda.
I’ve listened to all of your books and will eagerly await your next.

Narration very much needs an editor

One minute the narrator would talk like she was an announcer in a ball stadium, next she'd be whispering unintelligibly, especially when she was reading Matt's lines and often Bree's. If I turned up the volume to hear Matt, I'd be deafened with the next words she said. Does anybody listen to the narration before the audiobooks are published? I've listened to this narrator before and I don't remember this problem. This same person is narrating Melinda Leigh's next Bree Taggert book, which is going to make me hesitate to buy it. This one was so frustrating and distracting, I'm not sure I can stand this again.

An author once told me she had no control over narrators. That's too bad. I'm sure it can affect sales which the author misses out on.

Otherwise this was a good Melinda Leigh book.

Enjoyed but parts hard to hear

I always enjoy this author's books but found with this one whoever performed Matt spoke too quietly. I listen while driving in my car so need it to be pretty loud. The other voices were fine.

Devious Good Read

Bree Taggert has wormed her way into my literary heart. I find her very relatable, and enjoy the stories created for her. In fact, many of the characters in this series are easy to like, especially Matt with his retired K-9. The three of them are a very formidable team.

This particular storyline was well written and moved at an Olympic sprinter's pace, in the style fans of Ms. Leigh have come to expect. As usual, trust no one. Everyone's a liar... or so it seems.

LOVE MELINDA LEIGH!!!

I am a true fan of Melinda Leigh and appreciate her writing talent. I always hate to see the story end. I look so forward to the next release. As for the narrator....I HATE, HATE, HATE Matt's voice. it's ridiculously monotone...boring...flat...one unvaried tone. Many times you can't even hear what he's saying due to the tone being so low. That truly needs to be corrected. I gave the Performance a 4 star and it would have been a 5 star except for the voice of Matt. CHRISTINA TRAISTER...if you listened to your own narration you would make changes without being told or reading reviews!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sound levels

I’m on my third book in the series and have enjoyed it. I have just started this book, but what I’ve noticed is that the voices reading the characters other than the narration voice are all more muted and softer. It is difficult sometimes to hear them against background noise while the narrator voice comes through loud and clear. If I turned the character voices up, the narrator voice becomes too loud.

Very entertaining

I really enjoyed this story. Anything by Melinda Leigh is worth reading or listening to. The story was well done. I was actually surprised by the end.
