The scream Lena Riddle hears in the woods behind her house is enough to curdle her blood—she has no doubt that a woman is in real danger. Unfortunately, with no physical evidence, the local law officers in small-town Ash, Kentucky, dismiss her claim. But Lena knows what she heard—and it leaves her filled with fear and frustration.
Ezra King is on leave from the state police, but he can’t escape the guilty memories that haunt his dreams. When he sees Lena, he is immediately drawn to her. He aches to touch her—to be touched by her—but is he too burdened by his tragic past to get close? When Ezra hears her story of an unknown woman’s screams, his instincts tell him that Lena’s life is also at risk—and his desire to protect her is as fierce as his need to possess her.

You should know going in that not until the third book in the trilogy is the villain revealed. I found it annoying that in order to get the complete story I had to buy all 3 books and then the ending as it related to a wrap up of all the characters still felt incomplete. I won't buy anymore from this author and certainly wouldn't have bought this book had I known I'd have to buy the other two to get one complete story. Really annoying and a waste of money!
It took me several weeks (literally) to make my way through the first half of this novel. At that halfway point, it was the least involving of any Shiloh Walker book I've ever read. FINALLY, in the second half, the plot really got going--and I needed to know the resolution of the murder mystery. I was hooked. BUT, at the end, the core mystery is left totally unsolved--not only unsolved, but without any hint whatsoever of how (or whether) it might be resolved in the next volume of this trilogy. INSTEAD, the book ended with a hugely anticlimactic "resolution" of the romance between Lena and Ezra. Any obstacles to that romantic conclusion had disappeared chapters ago--unless you expected the author to kill them off. No credibility there. So... I will NOT be reading the next novel in the series.
If it was the authors intent to get you so invested in all the characters and then leave you hanging until January dying to know what happens next then she succeeded. The end of this book has so many cliffhangers.
As this was the first book in the series its a little slow going at first as we get to meet the characters. Actually the first character we get to meet is the killer and his victim. We do not get to find out who the killer is in this book. I dont even had a guess yet as to who the killer is.
Lena is the main heroine of this book. She is blind and a chef. She hears a woman screaming in the middle of the night but when she goes to the police they dont believe her.
Ezra is our main hero and he is in Ash on leave from the police dept after being shot and finding out his female partner and lover was dirty. He is in the police station when Lena comes in and he decides he is going to help her.
Their love story wasnt full of conflict or...
