After Alex Polecheck’s police officer husband, Sam, is stabbed in cold blood, she vows to see the murderer brought to justice. Peter, Sam’s best friend, and fellow police officer, seems to be the only member of the Police Department interested in catching the killer.
Peter sets out on a perilous hunt for the killer, while trying to protect Alex, who appears to be next on the murderer’s list.
The mystery begins to unravel when Peter finds a connection between the murder of Sam and two other law enforcement officers, who were all part of an internet crime task force. Peter and Alex find themselves alone in the battle for justice and truth when they discover members of the local police department cannot be trusted. Will Peter piece together the puzzle before Alex is silenced? While battling to protect Alex, will he be able to continue to conceal his love for her?
This was truly a very mysterious and action filled romantic suspense. But it had quite a few swoon worthy sweet elements in a a very touching love story. I have a very, very delicate balance with my love/hate relationship when it comes to romances where the heroine or hero has lost their first love. It has to be handled in a way that I don’t feel like the new person has just come in at second best. Alex’s story broke my heart and I wanted her to have someone to help her heal so badly. Peter was that perfect sweet and protective hero for her. He was a true gentleman and he adored her and even the fact that her lost husband was his best friend just really in the grand scheme of things made him love her more.
