Publisher's Summary

The first book in the new Maddie Baker Mystery series by New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal best seller Denise Grover Swank.

Maddie

In the last few months, my life has gone to crap. My uncle died. I gave up my life to move back to my hometown to take care of my ailing aunt. And oh...I unwittingly drove a guy to his murder. Not exactly a stellar restart.

But things just keep getting worse, because the sexy-as-hell, yet stick-up-his-butt homicide detective in charge of solving the case thinks I had something to do with it, and he won't leave me alone.

Even more concerning? It turns out the victim was one of the last people to see my mother alive before her unsolved murder 18 years ago.

Noah

I left a big-city police department for a fresh start in a smaller town. Less crime. Less murder. But three months later, I’ve been handed the murder investigation of the most hated man in town. The list of potential suspects is as long as Santa’s naughty list, but one name keeps popping up.

Maddie Baker.

She’s infuriating as hell, but is she a cold-blooded murderer? My instincts tell me no, yet I can’t exactly trust those. The last time I let myself presume someone was innocent, I ended up with a bullet wound and a broken heart.

Please Ville USA

Great whodunit! Love the story line. Enjoyed getting to meet the two main characters. Didn't care for the narration for Maddie, not the sound of an educated female, even if she's southern. My only turn off. Can't wait for book two.

Great story

I enjoyed the characters, the story was intriguing. The negative for me was so much foul language. It just wasn’t necessary to tell the story.
Love Denise and have read most of her books.

Really simple stuff

I don’t like leaving negative reviews, but I do think they can be helpful. The writing is so simple and simpy. The characters have potential but they aren’t developed in a way that we can really get to know them. Every thought, feeling and reason for doing something is explained. That shouldn’t be necessary if characters are properly developed. I was really close to asking for a refund on this own but hung in there because there was just enough of a nugget for me to want to see it through. Shouldn’t have bothered as the end is just a lead in to another book.

Simply Fantastic!

Maddie has the best personality. I truly enjoy her spunky attitude and her snarky come backs. Noah has his hands full with Miss Maddie. I just love Shannon McManus she really brings Maddie's character to life. As for Chris Brinkley.... Hello Chris where have you been all my life? 😁😁 I wasn't expecting this most Alluring voice to bring Noah's character to life for us. From one fan to another, down load this Audible right now. You won't regret it.

Love it!!

I absolutely love the dual narration of Shannon McManus and Chris Brinkley.
Chris is the perfect voice for grouchy Noah, and Shannon was great for Maddie. Together they brought the story to life and it was like I was there with them in Cockamamie. I enjoyed the banter between the two characters. Looking forward to listening to the next installment. If you enjoy a dual POV mystery series, with a slow burn romance be sure to check this one out!
