When Archie turned in his scalpel to run the family business, life became too busy to go home and deal with his grief. But when he discovers a suspicious hire at his ancestral estate, he’s forced to confront the situation as well as his anger at God for taking not only his family, but his dreams. Despite his objections, his grandmother is determined to keep Nora on staff, but that isn’t going to stop him investigating her on his own—no matter how attractive he finds her. But the more he digs, the more questions he has.
Drawn to Nora again and again, Archie wonders if she’ll help lead him back to the truth or get him killed. Is trusting a beautiful stranger worth the risk to his family, his life, and his heart? And when Nora’s past catches up with them, will anyone be left alive?
My thoughts: I enjoyed this fast paced, well written mystery from start to finish! The story starts off with a mystery that kept me guessing until I finished the last page, since both Archie and Nora have people who have it out for them, so it's hard to know who is behind the threats. As things escalade, the two must choose if they can put aside past hurts and learn to work together. This is the first book that I have read by Allison Pearl, but I look forward to reading more of her stories!
I received this book from Just Read. This is my honest review.
