Just when you think you've reached the bottom...
Ryan DeMarco would rather not go home. Not now, maybe not ever. But when his estranged wife attempts suicide, he has no choice but to return to western Pennsylvania, and all the memories that wait for him there. Unfortunately, it's not only ghosts from the past waiting to greet DeMarco upon his return. An old high school classmate has risen through the ranks to become a county sheriff, and he is desperate for help investigating a series of murders that might tie into a cold case from his and DeMarco's school days.
DeMarco and his new love, Jayme, agree to join the team working on the case. But it's not easy for DeMarco to be walking the streets of his troubled past, and the deeper he and Jayme dig into the disturbing murders the less likely it is that either one of them will escape the devastation.
An emotionally wrenching thriller, perfect for readers of Harlan Coben and Lisa Regan.

This book was not for me. Not only was I already a bit turned off, finding out it was a series, I just could not get into it, i will update if this changes in the future, and did do a 3 star as a neutral, because it just wasn’t for me. Will use in a challenge, as well as let the members of Chapter Chatter Pub know about it’s release!
I loved the first book in the series but have been disappointed in the next two. This one focuses a lot on the relationship between Ryan and Jayme and it feels a bit forced and cliched to me. The parts that bring in Thomas’s writings seem like a device to make the mystery more literary. To me it made those sections boring. The characters are solid I wish the storytelling was a bit stronger. I was given a free copy from NetGalley to review in exchange for an unbiased review.
EXCELLENT AUTHOR telling a satisfying crime/romantic adventure. This is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone. Characters Ryan and Jayme are law enforcement and are asked to give a hand with a serial killer investigation in Ryan's home town of Eric Pa. Our main characters continue their attraction and healing while combating this crime investigation. One plot line Ryan struggles with the death of his author friend, Thomas Huston, who has left behind some of his unpublished pages. "A copy of this book was provided by Sourcebooks Poisoned Pen Press via NetGalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion." ENJOYED THIS PAGE TURNER
