From the first few pages of this book, you will be intrigued. By the next few chapters, you will be totally drawn into the life of a lovely young woman striving to pull out answers from her past, while solving a murder. To top it off, she is being stalked. Black roses. Diamond bracelets. Even love notes about death.
The stalker is, she is quite sure, Nick's brother Scott, who is rather Goth. But Nick hasn't seen Scott in three years. He was in Taylor's class that she was teaching at the collage, but so many things just don't add up! After all, she is a very skilled criminal investigator, and Nick is a writer. That could make him safer, or more dangerous. As the evidence keeps pointing to Scott, are they both being played for a fool, or what is really going on here? Not all is ever as it seems in a crime investigation, much less ones where hearts are being played for as well.
