Publisher's Summary

From best-selling and multi-award-winning author Amanda McKinney comes a stand-alone romance in the number one best-selling Steele Shadows series.

He’s an ex-con who just wants to be left alone. She's stranded in the middle of a blizzard - a broken invitation to danger.

Photographer by day, Ben and Jerry’s enthusiast by night, Louise Sloane isn’t known for her organizational skills or obsession to detail. But when someone from her past goes missing, she makes it her mission to solve the case - especially when the mystery becomes linked to the notorious serial killer, the String Strangler. 

During one of the worst snowstorms on record, Louise sets off to the small Southern town of Berry Springs, bulldozing her way not only into the investigation, but also into the home of a reclusive former inmate with eyes as cold as ice.

Ryder’s one goal in life is to be left alone. A desire unacknowledged by the five-foot-two-inch train wreck who breaks into his house in the middle of the night. He wants nothing to do with her and all her curves - until she uncovers his secrets and unearths a link to the past that changed his life forever.

As boundaries are shattered and relationships are questioned, a body is found on Ryder’s land, and it becomes apparent that the killer is closer than anyone realized. With his freedom on the line, Ryder must risk going back to prison or losing Louise forever.

Suspense, sparks, mystery

I can’t stop listening to this book. It is a wonderfully crafted story that mostly follows Louise as she tries to uncover what happened to her friend - which inevitably leads to more, bigger stories and questions that seem to all be interconnected after all.

The narrators do an amazing job taking me on a journey through the world and the events of the story, as if it is happening before my eyes.
