This book is perfect for those who have read the series or are looking for a romantic mystery. Nicci is a dynamic character, she can be caring, inquisitive, and secretive. That last characteristic might get her into trouble, however. When she unearths her past lover, David's killer, she thinks she might finally get some rest and peace. She is not that lucky. Though she has found another love interest in Dallas, David may still come back to haunt her.

When she believes she sees David in a crowd, Nicci decides to stop at nothing to uncover the actual secret behind his demise. To do so, however, requires that she join forces with Simon, David's past boss, who is secretive and powerful himself. Nicci hides all of her secrets from Dallas, which may not be the best start to their relationship. Can Nicci discover David's secrets while still keeping Dallas?

This book was fast-paced and fun to read. It helps to have read the first two, though the author does a good job of filling the reader in. The romance between Nicci and Dallas is sweet and believable. The action rendered the story intriguing and hard to put down. This book is recommended to adult readers.

By now readers of the trilogy will find that Nicci Beauvoir had been pulled into David Alexander's business and asked by his boss to work with one of his co-workers to find out who had murdered David...They conducted the investigation (in Recovery) while pretending that Nicci and Dallas August had fallen madly in love.

And indeed they were moving in that direction, even to the extent of living together...

But when Nicci comes back to New Orleans for her cousin's wedding, she sees a man in a crowd that she believes is David Alexander! Only she knows that she has continued to love David like no other man, even though she has become intimatey involved with Dallas. Dallas is now to a point that he wants to make final plans to spend the rest of his life with Nicci as his wife...Sometimes, even Nicci has thought she should marry him...

Even though it is unlikely that David was not murdered, especially since Nicci saw him at the morgue, she has no choice--she must make sure! In the back of her mind, she remembered that she had really not seen David's face clearly. Hope sprang once again! She would not give up until she was absolutely sure this time!

In doing so, however, she must go even deeper into the business that David was in--let me just say that it wasn't entirely legal...

And new paintings of Jenny (the series created by David with Nicci as the one and only model) have been on the market! And Nicci knows that she did not sit for them! Are they forgeries? Or is David painting them? Only Nicci can help document these new paintings as created by Alexander...and she is dangerously caught in the clutches of those who are trying to sell them... While Dallas is trying unsuccessfully to keep her out of the whole mess that has restarted!

Format: Paperback
Nicci Beauvoir has been through a traumatizing ordeal that most women may not be able to handle, mentally or physically. However, through her incredible strength and inquisitive mind, she continues her mission to resolve haunting issues to give her eternal peace. She sets out on a mission, despite the danger involved to put all the pieces together in a mysterious puzzle. She returns to her beloved hometown in New Orleans to attend a wedding as her heart begins to pound, after gazing at a familiar figure strolling through Jackson Square, was it her lost love, or her imagination? Who was charged with murder for killing David, and why was Michael hated? Can Nicci bury the horrifying events that took place three years ago, or will it haunt her forever? How long can she hide secrets from Dallas, and will she ever marry him? How did Nicci meet Dallas, and can she trust Simon? What sacrifice must she take to finally demolish the nightmare she has lived so long in order to know the true meaning of happiness? Alexandrea Weis, a Master storyteller takes the reader on an unforgettable journey, filled with twists-and-turns from beginning to end, made for the movie screen. I highly recommend this intriguing book to all romance suspense lovers. One could feel the warm Southern breezes in a picture-perfect setting of New Orleans, the action-packed story that becomes a deadly thriller has you biting your nails throughout, and the heroine is a woman we shall remember long after the book is closed. How far will Nicci go, and what price will she pay? Is Dallas in danger, and what does he do to protect Nicci? The reader will admire the dynamic personalities of the characters in this gripping tale that will satisfy your curiosity one-hundred percent! "SACRIFICE" is as entertaining as NO MERCY, as thrilling as PRESUMED INNOCENT, and as compelling as REVENGE, with Kevin Costner.
