Roxy Marcoli has three things that matter to her in life, her restaurant, her aunt, Liz and her sisters.  When Liz disappears Roxy ends up turning to Steve Kincaid, a cop with a playboy reputation.  A man that tries to charm Roxy but gets her hackles up every time instead.

Steve Kincaid isn’t anything like the ladies man reputation that he has.  His flirting covers up a loss that is unbearable. As Roxy and Steve search for clues to what has happened to Liz, Steve gets to see what really lies beneath Roxy’s sharp tongue and prickly attitude. The more Steve gets to know the more he wants Roxy.  As his desire grows so does the fear Steve now has because it seems Aunt Liz isn’t the only one a killer wants, they are now after Roxy.

This story proves to be a great romantic suspense with twists and turns that are sure to keep the reader guessing as to who is behind what is happening. Just as the reader thinks they have it figured out another twist comes along that will have the reader second guessing themselves.  The ending is great and this book proves to be very hard to put down.  This story has a couple of plots going that make it that much more intriguing and sure to grab the reader’s attention.  This one is definitely worth taking the time to check out and read.

I give this one 5 red roses
