Book Description: Best-selling author Maddy Fitch, researching material for a new novel, returns to Harbour Falls to investigate a disappearance that has haunted the town for more than four years. Maddy soon discovers that the case may be cold, but the #1 suspect, Adam Ward, certainly is not. Now living on an island off the coast of Maine, Maddy takes up residence near the sexy Mr. Ward’s home. As she begins to seek out answers, the mystery deepens, putting Maddy in jeopardy.
Lies, secrets, deceptions. Nothing is what it seems in Harbour Falls.
I’m a sucker for a good mystery. Toss in a romance, and I’m golden. Make the protagonist an author who is delving into a real mystery much like she would craft her books – and that is a must read.
Although it starts a little slow, the background provided helps to engage the reader into the mystery, and fix Maddy as a character worth knowing. Confident and strong writing create a world that is familiar and yet lively, with a hauntingly intriguing mystery at the core. With a cast of characters so complex and multi-layered, all with their own secrets and agendas, the mystery is truly one of the better ones I have read in a while.
With characters that have faults, insecurities and secrets, the possibility for the “who did it” is great, and the mystery that Maddy decided to investigate is not the only shady dealing in this little town. Determining friend from foe, innocent from suspect was truly a puzzle, for both Maddy and I, and even when the book ends, there are still several unanswered questions. All to be picked up in the proposed books 2 and 3 of this series.
With an incredibly steamy and sexy romance, the frustration that Adam must have felt just oozes through the pages as the author keeps you waiting to see if they will have their moments, or just dance about in a haze of sexual attraction and excitement. A truly unique work that was a page turner, with a climax that was unexpected and clever. An author to watch, especially for the subsequent books in this series.
I received an eBook copy from the author for review for Full Moon Bites tours. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
