Publication date: June 18th 2020
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Secrets, lies, deceit… A former Navy SEAL turned homicide detective has met his match in this new *standalone* addition to the number #1 Bestselling Steele Shadows Series…
He found her covered in blood.
She promises she’s innocent.
The question is… Can he trust her?
Feared just as much on the streets as at a crime scene, Homicide Detective Max Jagger has dedicated his life to one thing—speaking for the dead. Everyone and everything else be damned, including his own demons. During one of the most oppressive heat waves to hit the small, southern town of Berry Springs, the former Navy SEAL is called to a scene where a real estate heiress is found standing over a dead body, holding the murder weapon. The local cops immediately dub it a slam-dunk case, but if Jagg has learned anything from his days running special ops, it’s that nothing is as it seems… including this suspect.
Despite her name, Sunny Harper is as beguiling as a fallen angel. Clever, cunning, completely unwilling to cooperate, and, perhaps his least favorite quality—mind-numbingly intoxicating. When evidence from the scene suggests an accomplice, Jagg begins to believe that Sunny is both innocent and in danger, despite the towns’ uproar to lock her up. Torn between his growing feelings for his suspect, he takes Sunny to a secluded lake house where he discovers there’s much more behind those enchanting green eyes… including secrets that could take them both under.
With his career on the line and the clock ticking, Jagg must decide if he can trust Sunny… before they both get burned.
Really great mystery. Jagg is a great cop but plays by his own rules and sometimes they get him in trouble. Now one step away from getting fired he is caught up in an art heist and the murder of his mentor when he answers a call of a murder in the park. What he finds leaves him rattled. A beautiful woman standing over a dead man with gun in her hand.
Sunny has a brutal past that has left her untrusting and not looking for a relationship. She is fine with her small house and her job training guard dogs. That is until Jagg walks into her life with his blunt ways and pointed questions. It also seems like he can see through her.
Fast paced with lots of twists and turns you aren't sure who to trust as you follow the twisted path of violence and mayhem. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next in this series, about Jagg's brother, which I've already got in my wish list on amazon!
