Publisher's Summary

When 30-something housewife Alison Monaghan discovers proof of her husband's infidelity in a photograph with a mysterious woman, she must decide how to confront Frank when he returns home from work. Despite the influence of her best friend, Valerie, a strong Christian, Alison remains aloof from God and is determined to handle this crisis her own way. But Alison may not get that chance.

Frank never makes it home. Soon his body is found on a lonely back-country road in antebellum Weathersby Historic Park, where Frank served on the board of directors and where Alison, with a degree in landscape design, was a volunteer garden docent. Homicide detective Mike Barefoot, a Cherokee native from the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, immediately puts Alison at the top of his suspect list. He finds himself drawn to her - and not just because she had motive for the crime. As an army veteran, Mike usually keeps his emotional walls high. And as a detective, he knows not to get involved with murder suspects. So why he is so attracted to Alison? Can he fight his feelings for her - and the stirrings in his heart toward God?

Hmmm...

Oh No! You missed it on the narrator, which sadly, no matter how good the story, detracts from it. It's bound to happen.. that being said, not all the voices were off, but I particularly disliked the voice of the girl and the time's it was devoid of inflection and flat. It did detract from the story, which otherwise was solid reading with feel good, wholesome vibes (even with the murder!) with something worthwhile saying.. and hearing. It would have been better with a different narrator, but I did listen to it to the very end and it was a good story. Keep writing it!

Real...

I like real people who suddenly struggle with challenges that rock their world. These characters experience a new reality but it's done with grace and humor. Lessons are learned and twists are amazing! Will read more from this author any day!!!

Fabulous mystery!!

I thoroughly enjoyed Lisa Carter’s murder mystery that had a side order of romance. I was stumped until close to the end to figure out the murderer! I appreciated the author’s weaving a faith journey into the characters, and their authenticity. The narrator did a great job—and since it is set in the south, her voices were well done. I will definitely be listening to more Lisa Carter mysteries.

Loved it! Very engaging and exciting. Kept me on the edge and anxious to hear the next chapter. Loved the characters and the story. The narrator did a great job.

Not my favorite

The storyline was okay but there was a strong religious element to the story that did not help the plot.

let me say the only reason I finished the book is because I was curious as to what would happen Allison and Mike. other than that kind of boring. finally stopped listening with minutes left. boring

Caroline reckoning

could not finish . The main character was clueless and everyone was like a bad glass of SWEET TEA. This seemed like it was going to drag on for ever. just one emotion.

Good for falling asleep too

Mildly interesting story, blah reading, I did finish it, but missed half of it from falling asleep and didn’t mind. Wouldn’t pay for it. May listen to it again as something to fall asleep to.

Rescued by Love

I enjoyed the story line. a few too many characters to keep track of. wished the story would have expanded more on the children.
