Family secrets could turn deadly in this story about the Lawless siblings. Drama, intrigue, and, of course, romance are all present and make this story one you won’t want to put down. Drew has to come with terms that he can’t control everything and protecting his siblings may not always be a good idea. Shelby is drawn to a 20 year old mystery and murder. But, how far will she go to solve it. Solutions are outside the box and the emotional drama is outstanding. I couldn’t put this book down and the twists and turns are sometimes unexpected and always awesome. New characters emerge and old ones make appearances and this story just gets more complex. Ms. Blake is a fantastic story teller and this story proves it. This story is part of a series and is a spin off from another. Yet, each story can be read alone and each story is terrific. The worse thing that I can see happening is you having the uncontrollable urge to find the rest of the books in this series. It’s that good.
Shelby wants to know what really happened the night that made the Lawless children orphans. Something is just not adding up. Drew thought he knew what happened that night but has since discovered family secrets that he is insisting his younger siblings know nothing about. He will do whatever he can to protect them. Knowing that Shelby is not going to stop investigating, he proposes a plan. The plan will take care of what Drew wants and Shelby will be doing all of the hard work. Though Drew is sure he can keep his feelings out of this plan, Shelby isn’t going to make it easy.
