Eighteen-year-old Mallory Martin and her little sister, Macy, were the victims of an illegal adoption--sold by their addict mother for drugs. But their "benefactor" is not who everyone thinks he is.

As if the character roster in Roses long-on-suspense contemporary romance isnt lengthy enough, one of them goes by two names: FBI Special Agent Griffin Davenport is better known as Gene Decker. At least love interest Kate Coppola, a fellow agent, sticks with a single moniker as she sits by his hospital bed after he suffers a near-fatal gunshot. Shes only recently been assigned to the Cincinnati field office and doesnt really know Gene, but its imperative that she be there when he wakes from his medically induced coma; his first words might hold the key to identifying an elusive child molester. Nothing is ever quite so easy, and as a result Kate and Gene must spend more time scanning his memory for clues. By the time theres a break in the case, Gene and Kate are in love. Tension mounts as each chapter ticks off every moment of the FBIs frustrating search. Roses brand of character-focused romantic thriller has its appeal, but readers may be turned off by her dizzying array of secondary players, and a reduction in page count would not go amiss.
