Product Description

A 2015 Daphne du Maurier Award finalist from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh.

While fighting in Afghanistan, Major Grant Barrett receives devastating news: his brother and sister-in-law have been murdered in Scarlet Falls, the sleepy suburb of Grant’s youth. Emotionally scarred from war, the career soldier returns home on emergency leave to temporarily care for his orphaned nephew and niece. But when someone tries to kidnap the kids and their teenage babysitter, Grant knows it’s not a random act…and neither were the murders.

Already devastated by her neighbors’ violent deaths, Ellie Ross is shattered by the attempted abduction of her teenage daughter so she desperately turns to Grant for help. As they navigate a deadly search for the truth, they struggle with growing feelings for each other and Grant’s impending return to Afghanistan.

But time is running out. The killer is growing bolder by the hour, and Ellie and Grant must find him before the children become his next victims.

Bestselling author Melinda Leigh delivers another gritty mystery simmering with spine-tingling passion in this first Scarlet Falls novel.

Melinda Leigh has written an entertaining novel featuring tragedy, mystery, suspense and romance. Grant, a major serving in Afghanistan, learns immediately after being involved in a firefight during a Taliban ambush of his convoy that his lawyer brother and sister-in-law have been murdered in upstate new York. He obtains one month of emergency leave to deal with the tragic emergency. There is a surviving 6-year old boy and a baby girl to look after. It becomes obvious early after his arrival that there are extenuating circumstances to the murder, possibly linked to teen age bullying, which puts Ellie, his single mother neighbor, and her daughter in immediate danger. Grant's younger brother, Mac. and his sister, Hannah, an executive lawyer, join him to try and remove the threat with police cooperation. What is the best solution for dealing with the two children? Is there a future for Ellie and Grant who are attracted to each other? Melinda Leigh does an excellent job of developing the characters.
