Vivi, Fen's oldest niece, is dealing with her own problems. Having recently broken up with her fiancé, she's emotionally overloaded, and as an emergency room doctor, she needs to keep her emotions in check. Wanting nothing more than to see her Aunt Fen, the storm feels like one more hurdle to overcome in an already hectic night. Right before her shift is to end, a young woman is brought in, her throat and wrists slashed, and in bad shape with little chance of surviving. Vivi does her best and sends her off to surgery but not before finding out that the woman is the latest victim of the serial killer who leaves notes hidden on his victims' bodies that say "please don't tell." When her sister, JC, a free spirit with no job, money, or place to live, shows up at her house, Vivi is at the end of her rope. After dealing with her own relationship issues and a grueling scene at the hospital, the last thing she wants to deal with is her sister's mess of a life.
Soon after, worlds collide. It turns out that Fen's stranger has a connection to the serial killer. This makes not only Fen suspicious --- she's still inexplicably attracted to the stranger, though --- but also Detective Brad Merlin, who is very much interested in getting a date with Vivi.Read more ›
The story starts off with an older woman in Carmel who is weathering a bad storm by herself when a knock comes at her door and she allows a total stranger to enter with a knife in his hand. Before the night is over they somehow develop chemistry, even though he has recently lost his fiance to a violent death. By the end of the novel, they are madly in love even though they will only meet one more time.
I am sorry but this book was not well written. It seems the author could not decide if the book should be a murder mystery or a contemporary romance. It fails at both genres. I can't recommend.
