“ARC was given for an honest review”

Law and Order.

For as long as Samantha can remember, Hunter – a man as strong as steel, with a heart of gold – has been her hero. It came as no surprise to Samantha when she found out that the ranch-hardened cowboy who always protected her from bullies went on to become the town’s sheriff. What does surprise her is how incredibly hot he still is. And how much she still wants him…

Pride and passion

And, lo and behold, Hunter still has feelings for Samantha. The long-smouldering heat of their innocent flirtation has grown into a full-raging fire. But when tragedy strikes, and their small-town community is shattered, Hunter vows to do everything he can to keep his childhood sweetheart safe. But can Samantha trust that Hunter has her best interests at heart…and that, after all these years, his love is true?

First sentence

Finding the middle-aged woman dead, alone in her home, was a shock that mild summer night.

My thoughts

This was my first book that I’ve read from Lora Leigh.  So with that I was looking forward to discovering a new author that I could dive into their amazing works. But unfortunately, it was not the case here. I felt that the book fell short of expectations.

The set up for the plot was fantastic and there was huge potential for it to be grand. Samantha and Hunter, both characters were strong and likeable and were thrown into a murder mystery in a small town. The overall story wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t anything to write home about either. I expected something more. Happy reading!
