Nowhere to Run Kindle Edition
With the murder of her only sister, Sara, just a few months past, Lily Valier, a woman of beauty and substance, tops the sheriff's list of suspects in small town Maine, and for a very good reason — dear old Dad had willed his fortune to Sara and only Sara, leaving Lily to fend for herself. However, with no murder weapon or witnesses, the evidence against Lily is circumstantial.
Enter P.I. Aiden O'Rourke, black-haired and blue-eyed, charged with gaining Lily's trust and learning her secrets, all to finally get the goods on her. Things move fast and feelings run deep, but when Lily discovers the truth about Aiden, the downward spiral begins.
Aiden's torn. Despite his feelings for her, Lily is the most logical suspect. Except, something's not quite right. Aiden trusts his instincts and they're screaming at him to have a look at a former suspect with more to hide than at first glance. With little left to lose, Lily stands her ground, but staying put has its consequences when the murder weapon finally turns up, and it's her gun.
What happens to love when trust is betrayed?

If you are 16-96 you are bound to enjoy this superb ebook. By Michael Thal
This is a good, solid thriller from Jeanne Bannon. The characters are interesting and clear cut, the hero gorgeous (sigh) and the heroine is not too stupid to live - as so many are these days.
Her first, Invisible, is the best Young Adult I have ever read - and I don't understand or read YA generally.
By Diana M. Hockley
The plot is fast-paced, the descriptions are excellent, some turns of phrase really stood out. I think Jeanne Bannon is a talented writer. I also liked her other book, Invisible, very much. She seems able to write in different genres with skill and aplomb.

In an effort to get the truth from Lily, Aiden befriends Lily as a retired stock broker who is looking to open a business in town. Aiden didn't count on falling for her, though. And even though he's falling for Lily and can't see her murdering her sister, his job is still to find the person who did. How can he get her to talk to him without revealing what he's up to? How will Lily ever be able to trust him when she finds out his real reason for coming to town?
In an interesting side plot, Bannon puts Aiden and Lily on opposite sides of the life after death debate. Lily, a Christian, believes that there is life after death and that the dead can hear you when you talk to them. Aiden believes that when you die, you just rot in a grave. Events in the story lead one of them to change views.
There's so many twists and turns, and ups and downs, that it's way more of a suspense and mystery story than a love story. And never underestimate the power of betrayal.
However, when you go past that point the author does use some elements to make the characters speak to each others and in the process learning to really discover the other one and build trust...
What really moved me was the ending... really this couldn't have been a more perfect one for this story and i couldn't resist shedding tears as it was quite moving really so i would be very happy to read more story from this author if only for that part .
If you want a good romance suspense withy some mystical element and moving ending.. this is a book not to miss.
this was first published on my blog " Lecture toute une Aventure"
The two sisters worked their mother’s diner for more than 25 years, since Lily was seven. Now Sara was gone—a victim of a senseless killing, which Sheriff Royce Wilkins presumes Lily as his prime suspect.
And why not? The sisters’ father left his millions to his older daughter, leaving Lily penniless. After Sara’s death, Lily became the richest citizen of Higgstown. The only problem the Sheriff has is circumstantial evidence and a desire to close the case before he retires.
Then one evening a burglar enters Lily’s small Maine diner. Fortunately, a good- Samaritan rescues her, P.I. Aiden O’Rourke. Could he be the man Lily has always wanted or is he a harbinger of more trouble?
"Nowhere to Run" is a mystery love story that knits together surprising curves that keeps readers guessing about Sara's murderer until the thrilling confession near the book’s dramatic ending.
As readers experience Lily’s adversities, the author injects a soothing faith that will uplift any heart deflated by the recent loss of a loved one.
If you are 16-96 you are bound to enjoy this superb ebook.
The plot is straightforward. Lily was the unfavoured daughter, Sara got all the money from their father.Sara offers Lily half the money, Lily says no, I want the diner, that will be enough. Then Sara is murdered...and the sheriff only has Lily to blame, but unbeknownst to him, dark forces are swirling around him and Lily. Enter Aiden...and things start to move.
I don't want to give any spoilers, so all I will say further is that I enjoyed this novel very much and I am looking forward to Bannon's next one. Her first, Invisible, is the best Young Adult I have ever read - and I don't understand or read YA generally.
I was immediately captivated by this book and finished it in one day. Lily Valier owns and runs the local diner in the small town where she grew up. She is a murder suspect in the death of her own sister. But Lily insists she is innocent and stays right where she is as the investigation into the first murder in 26 years drags on around her. The sheriff and his deputy are convinced she is guilty of the murder, or is that really what’s going on?
Aiden O’Rourke, a private investigator, ex-detective, is hired by the sheriff to help him solve the mystery. In his attempt to do his job, Aiden meets with Lily and helps her thwart an attempted robbery. This sets the stage for Aiden as he pursues his investigation. But all is not as it seems. Is Lily guilty of a heinous crime, is the sheriff an honest man, what about his deputy? What is really going on in Higgstown?
