Research scientists Kate Adams and Daisy Leacock were on the brink of a breakthrough for treating depression with herbal medicine when Daisy was suddenly found dead. Kate knows that her mentor's death wasn't suicide or a careless accident--and she's determined to do whatever it takes to unearth the truth about what happened to the woman who changed her life.
Former FBI agent Tom Parker is finding it hard to adjust to life back in his hometown of Port Aster. Though an old buddy gave him a job as a detective on the local police force, not everyone approves. Tom's just trying to keep a low profile, so when Kate Adams demands he reopen the investigation into her friend's death, he knows his job is at stake. But despite his attraction to her, Tom thinks Kate may have something to hide.
As evidence mounts, a web of intrigue is woven around the sleepy town of Port Aster. Can Kate uncover the truth? Or will Tom stand in her way?
MY THOUGHTS-Well, I am going to start off by saying this was not a favorite. I just could not get into it for the life of me. I kept trying to feel for the characters and connect with them but it just wasn't there. And I hate doing a review like this because I want to like the book so much. I thought the plot sounded great and from reading the back cover I expected to really like it. I have also read several of Sandra's other books and liked them but this one was different. The characters were almost annoying and I wanted to slap Kate a couple times. They seemed to jump from one theory to the next and all over the page. For those of you reading this, please don't take my word for it. I know some books I didn't like and other people have loved. So take a chance on it and you just might enjoy it. But it wasn't my cup of tea.
