Contemporary, Suspense
Bamfield, Vancouver Island, Canada

Holly Rudd arrived in Bamfield to investigate a body found by divers with a knife sticking out of its chest.  While investigating the death Holly quickly realizes that the small community has a lot of secrets that it has been hiding for years.  One of the most disturbing secrets is Holly’s resemblance to a woman murdered three decades ago. Holly can dismiss her resemblance to the woman but what she can’t dismiss is her attraction to Finn Carver.

Finn Carver is a former Special Forces soldier who also happens to be one of the divers that found the body that Holly is investigating.  Finn knows the best thing for him to do while Holly is in town investigating the death is to stay away from her but that is a lot easier said than done with the attraction that is simmering between them. 

As Finn and Holly are thrown together by the investigation they are also finding out that they only can trust each other because someone is trying to make sure that the past stays buried no matter who they have to stop from uncovering that past.

This is a good suspense story but some readers will find it easy to figure out the mysteries in the book.  It is a sweet romance that would have benefitted from a more suspenseful storyline that kept readers more on the edge of their seats.  While readers will be able figure the story out it is still a good story that keeps moving at a quick pace and will keep readers turning the page just to see what else happens in the book.  The location descriptions are well written and readers will feel the story coming alive for them as they read this one.  For readers that like some suspense in their romances, this is one to check out! 

I give this one 4 red roses.
