2015 Daphne du Maurier Award Finalist

While fighting in Afghanistan, Major Grant Barrett receives devastating news: his brother and sister-in-law have been murdered in Scarlet Falls, the sleepy suburb of Grant s youth. Emotionally scarred from war, the career soldier returns home on emergency leave to temporarily care for his orphaned nephew and niece. But when someone tries to kidnap the kids and their teenage babysitter, Grant knows it s not a random act and neither were the murders.

Already devastated by her neighbors violent deaths, Ellie Ross is shattered by the attempted abduction of her teenage daughter so she desperately turns to Grant for help. As they navigate a deadly search for the truth, they struggle with growing feelings for each other and Grant s impending return to deployment.

But time is running out. The killer is growing bolder by the hour, and Ellie and Grant must find him before the children become his next victims.

Bestselling author Melinda Leigh delivers another gritty mystery simmering with spine-tingling passion in this first Scarlet Falls novel."

In this auspicious start to Leigh's latest romantic suspense series, sleepy Scarlet Falls, N.Y., is rocked by a shocking double homicide. Local lawyer Lee Barrett and his wife, figure skating coach Kate, are gunned down, orphaning their two young children. The cops alert the family's nearest relative, Maj. Grant Barrett, Lee's brother, who's currently deployed in Afghanistan. He hops the first flight back to the States to tend to the kids and his brother's affairs. His next-door neighbor, single mom Ellie Ross, works at the same law firm as Lee and met Grant when he visited a year ago. The attraction was palpable then, and it grows as they spend more time together. But there's little evidence to support the theory that the murder was a robbery gone wrong, and Ellie soon learns that the killer is still a threat—not only to her, but to her teen daughter and elderly grandmother. Leigh takes her time with this slow-burning fuse of a story, which builds with steady pressure on both the suspense and the romance. Agent: Jill Marsal, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. (Dec.)
