Maintaining his cover cost undercover cop Rick Gray the woman he loved. Sweet Ginny Bryson never really knew Rick. He never gave her the chance. Not then, and not now, when he's back with a new alias to gather evidence against Ginny's uncle. The man's crimes led to Rick's partner's death, and Rick wants justice to be served.

My personal Rating-
Sandra Orchard has become one of my favorite authors with her Secrets of Aster Port series and the Serena Jones Mysteries, but this one definitely wasn’t a favorite of mine—eight of her other books have received 4 or 4.5 stars for My Personal Rating. The plot just seemed to jump around along with some head jumping. Ginny nor Rick were my favorite at any moment—Lori won that award! She was so precious. :)


See y’all on Friday with a new review!
