Marian saw a police officer standing by her house, and explained that she lived next door and would like to know what happened, the officer looked like he just graduated from high school was the first thought that popped into Marian's head. He told her to stay there, and called to another young looking officer to go get the detective. He began asking Marin what she heard, and asking questions the usual questions, when all of a sudden the door to Marian's house slammed open, and Marian seen the paramedics carrying out Dianne, an oxygen mask on her face, and an IV in her arm. Marian was dumb struck, she couldn't believe her eyes, only hours ago she was speaking to Dianne young, and vibrant, and now laid beneath a bloody sheet, looking pale. Her husband ran to the doors as the paramedics were putting Dianne in the back of the ambulance, asking where they were taking them, and one shouted back what hospital she would be airlifted to, and then she heard a police officer's voice call him back in telling him they would get him to the hospital as soon as he finished answering questions. As the police officer looked back at Marian he noticed she was pale, and looked shaky, he took her by the elbow and told her to lean against the patrol car.
Detective Charlie McClug, was only on the police force in Georgia for two weeks, he was from Virginia, but felt he needed a smaller town to be a police officer, and a slower pace. He had a lot of stress on his job in Virginia, but now all his thoughts about life being easier in a small town were shattered with this new case. A uniform officer came over to him, and told him he was wanted by another officer who was speaking to the neighbor. He approached, and seen a beautiful woman, who the police officer who came to get him, pointed out was the neighbor, Marian noticed him walking over, and he introduced himself as Detective McClug. The uniform officer told him the information he had so far, which wasn't much, since Marian was so shaken. He was going to start questioning her when he noticed she looked chilled, even though it was a warm night, and how pale and shaky she was on her feet. He offered to finish the questioning in the patrol car, but she refused, asking if they could just go in her house, and he said he had a lot more neighbors to question, she said he could come in to question her anytime, he told her it would probably late by the time she finished, and she said it would be fine. She whispered to him if Dianne was going to be alright, he tugged on his ear, not really allowed to give that kind of information out, but he whispered it didn't look good. Marian said she had to get in her house now, and he escorted her to her door, and asked again if it was alright if he came later this night, or should he wait till tomorrow, what about her family? She told him she was a widow with no children he wouldn't be disturbing anyone.
He finally arrived hours later, after Marian called the hospital, and was told that Dianne was in surgery, Marian found new hope, figuring if Dianne was in surgery than she there was hope, and she felt positive that she would be alright. McClug asked her all the necessary questions, as she poured him a cup of coffee, there was something that wasn't sitting right with Marian, he told her it was an attempted suicide and Marian knew Diane's feeling about suicide since she had a friend that committed suicide just a month ago. She insisted she wouldn't have done that, the hour was growing late and she asked the detective if he would call the hospital before he left. She handed him the cordless phone, and told him to just press redial, and he did, the nurse told him that Dianne passed away on the operating table. Now he had to tell Marian, and he did as gently as he could. She sobbed, and made him promise that he would call her the minute he found out what really happened, and he promised him he would.
There was something about this case that really bothered McClug, and he had tot agree that he didn't think this was a suicide attempt either, so he he rushed over to the hospital to speak to the surgeon to see what his thoughts were on the case, but when he asked the nurse at the desk, she said the surgeon was still in surgery with another surgeon, and if he would like to stay he was welcome, but if he wanted to go to the morgue that was where Dianne's body was now. He chose to go to the morgue, he met the doctor doing the autopsy, and he confirmed McClug's gut feelings, there was no way Dianne could have killed herself this was murder all the way through.

I HIGHLY recommend this book! If you love a good mystery, suspense, touch of romance, clean read, you'll absolutely love this mystery.
The story of Charlie and Marian is one that I find myself rooting for. I wanted them to find a way to make it work.
It was very well written and you feel like you know the characters and their surroundings. The author paints a picture that you are able to use your imagination to fill in the little details.
I started the second book in the series immediately upon finishing this one because I couldn't wait to find out what happened next.
