A widow accused of her husband’s murder may be the next to die in the bestselling author’s “sexy and clever” Southern romantic thriller (New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard).
As the blazing heat of summer gives way to sultry September, a shroud of suspicion settles over the sleepy Alabama town of Noble's Crossing. Lane Noble Graham stands accused of murdering her ex-husband. And the one man who can help, Johnny Mack Cahill, vowed never to return to the town that scorned him—or the woman whose love he knew he didn't deserve.
From the rusted-out trailers on the wrong side of the river to the stately pillared mansions along Magnolia Avenue, everybody has something to hide. But one secret could make Lane and Johnny Mack the next targets of a twisted killer who's determined to striking again . . .
"A sizzling, sexy tale that grabs the reader by the throat and doesn't let go." —New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson
