Letting love pass them by would be a crime.

Former forensic accountant Cameron has lost nearly everyone he’s ever loved, and now his vintage clothing shop has been broken into and trashed. When town police chief Will Carson asks an out-of-town cop friend of his for help, Cam takes one look at the dark-haired, blue-eyed detective and knows he’s in real trouble—and it has nothing to do with vandalism or murder.

Pete Minchelli is on leave from his job in Philadelphia due to a gunshot wound, but he figures he can help an academy buddy with some light police work. Plus, he’ll have a chance to experience small-town life. He’s tired of the big city and all its corruption. But he quickly discovers that not all the bad stuff happens in cities. What he doesn’t expect to find is death, treachery—or love.

I love a good romantic suspense book and this is a good one! Vicki Reese takes us to a small town full of secrets in Pennsylvania where we meet Cam and Pete.

Cam, a former forensic accountant owns and operates his deceased mom’s vintage clothing store. After his business is broken into he meets Pete, a Philadelphia detective on medical leave. Pete sets out to find who broke into Cam’s store and ends up stumbling onto something much bigger. Pete and Cam also find themselves drawn more and more to each other.

I really loved the backdrop to Cam and Pete’s story, a small town full of big problems. The secondary characters and the mystery itself are both done really well. The cast of characters have you guessing “who done it?” most of the book, which I loved. This Is definitely a slow burn, without a lot of heat. The connection between Pete and Cam and the suspense aspects more than make up for that though. Definitely a good read!

  1. I usually don't read reviews (being honest) but I saw this one at Dreamspinner 's website and convinced me to buy the book. Well done!!!

  2. The book looks good. I'll have to check it out.

    My favourite read in March was Two Man Station by Lisa Henry.

  3. Theoden by Nicholas Bella and Exhale by Joel Abernathy were 2 of my favourite March reads

  4. Exhale - Joel Abernathy was a brilliant shifter book and Score - A.E. Wasp was hot and romantic, a part of the new series - Hidden Creek, 6 books by six authors. I can't wait to read the rest
