18 years ago, Lucy Flannery lived through the horror of the murders of her mother and brother. Lucy began to travel down a path of addiction, violent behavior, rehabilitation and rebirth as Dr. Lucinda James, psychologist and college professor. But her father’s release from prison propels Lucinda James to travel back to Dahlonega and the world of Lucy Flannery in the hope of finding out what happened that fateful night. Sheriff Ben Paulson remembers 18 years ago very well, as that was when his teen sister Carly was murdered, a crime only solved the year before. Ben’s bitterness and rage over that event long ago spurred his choice of profession, but those emotions took a long time to get in check. When Lucy is brought into “his” station on a trespassing charge, the similar pasts of Ben and her create a bond between them. And that bond gets tested quite a few times as they seek the truth behind the Flannery murders.
This book was flat out amazing. It was well-written, the characters brilliantly developed and the plot riveting. That is the straightforward description - it is much harder to define what made this romantic suspense novel stand out from others written by the plethora of authors in this genre. Ms Clark O’Neill’s books always seem to capture the special, individual vibe each of her storylines are trying to convey. In this novel, you “felt” in your soul how lives were shattered,spirits broken, by those murders 18 years ago. You “felt” the connection Ben and Lucy had, and understood why it was there. When I hit the end of this book, I grasped what the expression “capturing lightning in a bottle” meant. This author has done that!
Although I seem to stress the darker side of the book, there were plenty of lighter moments to balance the “heavy.” There was plenty of witty banter to satisfy my usual craving for it - Sabrina and Duncan certainly mastered the insult-as-flirting trick! It was great to catch up with Ben’s cousin Ainsley (from Avarice) and glimpse a view of her HEA. And leave it to a chicken (yes, a chicken - I pictured a Plymouth Rock hen, but I could be wrong) to steal the story, Ben’s sanity and our hearts. If I could give this book 10 stars, I would in a second! Excellent, excellent read!
This can certainly be read as a stand alone but reading her books in sequence will allow a deeper experience. Ben and his family's story is incredibly gripping and impacts this story. Besides, I can't imagine not wanting to read them all.
I will eagerly await Lisa's next book and try really hard not to plead piteously for her to produce faster! 😉
