For FBI profiler Caitlin Falconetti, her job is her life. It’s how she’s been able to get over the near-fatal attack that cost her everything, including the man she loved. At the time, she thought it was better to let him think she didn’t want him anymore rather than reveal the painful secret she was certain would destroy them anyway.

Sheriff’s investigator Lamar “ Tick” Calvert has been assigned to sort out the corruption in the sheriff’s department in his hometown. This means he’s going working with the one woman he considers the one who got away.

When a case throws them together, it’s clear the attraction is still there, but Caitlin’s still holding on to a secret. Tick’s determined to figure out what went wrong between them, and he also has a killer to catch—a killer who seems to have picked Caitlin as his next target.

First read in 2013. Re-read in 2015 in anticipation of new books in the series.

A serial killer on the loose sets off this exciting page turner. Loved this story. After getting to know Tick in the first two books and reading hints of his heartbreak, we finally got to read his story. (though his story ...more

3.8 stars.

The author knows her cops. The procedural aspects of this book were very well done. I also really liked the writing.

Tick was a good hero. He and Caitlin spent many years together as friends and co-workers before they finally hooked up. He is on the verge of declaring love to her when he go ...more

*available on ScribD at time of reading.

I'm really liking this author's books. Well developed-plot and characters. The suspense is quite riveting, my mind was bouncing between suspects.

Plus, it's a second-chance romance! I met Caitlin in What Mattered Most and went searching if she had a book. She' ...more

The third in the Hearts of the South series. The books are stand alones but you see glimpses of the same characters. This story was what I often refer to as a "reunion" theme. The H/h knew each other in the past and are "reunited". Our heroine went through a tramatic and life-threatening experience ...more

Loved this one even more than the first one!! Such an emotional book, with everything Cait had been through. I wanted to strangle her for not coming clean with Tick, and trying to push him away. Luckily, he wasn't taking no for an answer. Tick was a real man who wasn't afraid to love his woman and h ...more

Little slow in the middle

Overall a real good book. Got a little slow in the middle but was worth continuing. Loved the H and you could see how much he loved the heroine. She was a little bit harder to understand but definitely loved her man. The bad guy wasn't a huge surprise and so the mystery elem ...more

3.5 stars for me
I enjoyed this book thoroughly.
The only thing was, I guess the killer as soon as the character was introduced, so I am not sure if the writer wanted to keep this a suspense all the way til the end or it was not a secret. ...more
