Summary

The discovery of human remains unearths another nightmare from Sheriff Bree Taggert’s past in a bone-chilling thriller by #1 Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh.

Twenty-seven years ago, Sheriff Bree Taggert’s father killed her mother, then himself. Now Bree and her younger brother, Adam, find human bones on the grounds of their abandoned family farm. The remains are those of a man and a woman, both murdered in the same horrible way. 

When the investigation determines the murders occurred thirty years ago, Bree’s dead father becomes a suspect, forcing Bree to revisit the brutal night she’s spent most of her life trying to forget. The only other suspect is an unlikely squatter on the Taggert farm who claims to know secrets about Bree’s past. When he mysteriously disappears and Bree’s niece is kidnapped, the cold case heats up.

Bree has stoked the rage of a murderer who’ll do anything to keep his identity - and motives - a secret. To protect everyone she loves, Bree must confront a killer.

Critic reviews

“The kidnapping of Bree’s eight-year-old niece raises the stakes, and the romantic attraction between Bree and Matt adds spice to the fast-paced plot. Readers will cheer Bree every step of the way.”Publishers Weekly

“Leigh’s experienced writing is apparent in her ability to create a plot that enthralls, characters we care about, and authentic dialogue. While each book works extremely well as a stand-alone mystery, you will want to know more.”—Bookreporter

Hard to listen to

The audio is not very good. It sounds like they had to do some edits and it is easy to tell where since the sound is completely different for a few sentences before it changes back. Makes it hard for me to listen to since every time the audio changes I am snapped out of the story as I wonder what is going on.

Worst sound quality of all the Audible versions I have


The sound is uneven so that it interfered with my listening, and I switched to the Kindle version. I recommend the Kindle or hard copy version of this book. I paid $1.99 for the audiobook, so I’m mulling whether I’ll bother to actually call Audible and return this. The storyline features a solid mystery with author’s usual, heavy internal-monologuing—due to the complex psychological profile of the protagonist. I read this as a stand-alone, without problems.

Quality control was non-existent.

I sure hope someone listens to the whole book and decides it needs re-recorded. I truly love this series and the characters, but it was very hard to listen to this book. A lot got lost for me in the recording edits.

Right Behind Her

I really like this series and characters but Bre’s growth is slow. As in, every time she puts herself in a dangerous position she thinks she doesn’t want to leave the kids alone. And then it happens again and again. I wasn’t surprised by the resolution, I had figured it out fairly early.

The narrator. I don’t know why I keep buying the audiobook except it’s a habit. The narrator is not improving. She places weird pauses in the middle of a sentence but will rush the end of a sentence and the beginning in one breath. And the audio quality on this one was terrible. At times the sound is like she’s in a tunnel and then it goes back to normal. Part of a sentence is the tunnel, then the rest back to normal. It’s frequent enough that it interrupted the story for me and just caused annoyance.

sound edits unprofessional

I love audio books. I listen to them all the time. This has to be one of the worst recordings I have come across. The edits were not professional. Sounds like the narrator was in a significantly different setting when they were recorded. It really took away from the flow of the story.

Overall great story but…

I struggled a bit with the audiobook this time. The sound quality was awful and it kept distracting me from the story.
At times the investigation was a bit slow. It picked up towards the end but again the sound quality was awful and it took away from the listening experience.

Story & narration great. Editing/production a FAIL

Weird editing & inserted phrases disrupted the flow of an otherwise good story & performance.

Loving this series!

Audiobook: Narrator - Christina Traister
I’m really enjoying listening to this narrator. As my ears get older, I appreciate a voice that is clear and precise while giving life to the characters. There are times that there is no difference between the male and female voices but I’ve still become addicted to Ms. Traister’s voice. It’s always such a pleasant experience.


Each book in this series has pulled me in. This one kept me completely locked to it as we skirt around Bree’s past. I was anxious to learn who was responsible and if they were connected to her in any way, and if so, how they were connected.

The romance factor also kicked up between Bree and Matt. While it’s been a slow burn between them, it’s been sweet watching them grow closer. He’s so perfect for her and I love that his presence in her personal life helps to remind her to take time for the important things.

As a reader that prefers to avoid series, I’m so glad I’ve decided to jump into this one. Despite being about murder and mayhem, each of these have a special element about them that pulls me in and makes me want to just sit back, relax and enjoy the unveiling of the crime and villains.

Intense, exhilarating, an action packed with lots of twists and turns. The characters and plot are captivating and Powerful. I admire Sheriff Bree Taggert, she is brave, honest and fearless. The story is well written and narrated, I can't wait for her next adventure.
