Jamie Richmond, reporter turned author, is doing research for her next book. Attempting to capture the realism of a police officer’s duties while on patrol, she manages to tag along for a shift with a state police trooper. A few traffic stops and a high speed chase later, Jamie’s ride takes an unexpected turn when she witnesses the trooper being shot. Although it is not a fatal injury, Jamie becomes obsessed with unraveling the facts behind this violent act. While she is trying to sort out this puzzle, she becomes romantically involved with Malone, another trooper with a few mysteries of his own. Now Jamie’s attention is divided between a blooming romance and solving the crime which is haunting her. Jamie begins to question the events that took place and exactly who could be behind the shooting. It was a devious mind. But who?
It was pretty easy to guess what the heck was going on and why. A real no-brainer (IMHO).
I will say, I hope things like that (the plot) don’t occur in the real world. If they do….. I just don’t want to think about it. (Yes, I’m being vague on purpose to avoid issuing out spoilers.)
Don’t you agree?
I understand keeping things ‘close to the vest’ to add mystery to a relationship, but your name. Call me old fashion but my legs would’ve stayed closed until he fessed up.

Great cover. Book sounds good too. Jay
I agree, the cover is very eye-catching.
Happy reading and thank you for stopping by!
Kameron, I have to agree with you about the name thing. It just sounds too much like a guy thing, ya know? The cover is cool, though.
