Synopsis 


Best-selling author Maddy Fitch, while researching material for a new novel, returns to her hometown of Harbour Falls to investigate an unsolved disappearance that has haunted the tiny Maine coastal town for the past four years. Although the case has gone cold, Maddy soon discovers that the prime suspect, Adam Ward, is hotter than ever.
The sexy, secretive Mr. Ward now makes his home on an isolated island near the coast, so Maddy takes up residence nearby to find out why this enigmatic man lives in such a secluded place. Is it because the missing person at the heart of the case, a young woman, was engaged to Adam at the time of her disappearance? Did the prime suspect perhaps move to escape the town's scrutiny, or is he hiding something much more sinister?
As Maddy plunges into the case, she and Adam are drawn together. Should she fight her growing attraction to a possibly dangerous man? The mystery deepens, and the list of suspects, people who all had reasons for wanting to see the missing young woman gone, grows. Maddy hopes that by solving the mystery Adam will be proven innocent of any involvement, and they can then move forward with their relationship.
But as she uncovers clues that begin to lead suspicion away from Adam, new secrets emerge that leave her questioning everything. Maddy continues to close in on the truth, threatening to blow the lid off the whole mystery. But what she doesn't realize is that she's actually caught up in someone's very dangerous game.

Lies, secrets, deceptions. In Harbour Falls, nothing is ever what it seems. This steamy novel immerses the reader in an intricate storyline that will keep them glued till the very last page.


My Review



Maddy Fitch is a Best Selling Author returning back to her hometown in Harbour Falls for her next book to write. Only difference is she will be writing about true mystery story rather than her known non-fiction mystery. Back in her hometown there is an unsolved mystery that puts her High school crush Adam Ward as number one suspect. His fiancée disappeared the night before their wedding with no trace or evidence left behind. As Maddy plays detective and thanks she has everyone fooled by why she is back, Adam Ward is very much aware to what she’s up too. As she spends some time around Adam she finds herself even more attracted to him and starts falling for him.

“More than anything I wanted to believe Adam was a “good guy”. My heart believed it, but my head was spinning, filled with uncertainty.”

Adam Ward is a successful entrepreneur trying to get his life back on track from the disappearance of his fiancée years ago. As things have calmed down, the past comes strolling in and lands at his front door (literally) and Adam sees its Maddy from high school. Adam has always been attracted to Maddy and seeing her now after all these years, he is instantly attracted to her. Adam does hesitate and asks Maddy out. He’s a smart man and knows what Maddy’s up to. Is he really falling for Maddy? Is he playing games??

“Maddy I need for you to believe me. I had nothing to do with her disappearance.”
“Do you believe me?”
My heart and mind were at war, but my heart won this round. “I believe you, Adam.”


This book kept me on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t put it down! I loved the mystery in the story and trying to figure out who did it till the end. It was brilliant! There were times I was thinking Maddy is nuts! She definitely got herself in some crazy situations. This book was beautifully written and I connected to the characters. I absolutely can’t wait to read the next book in the series!

EXCERPT

“W-where am I?” I stammered, glancing around a living room lit only by the warm glow of a crackling fire in a soaring stone fireplace. My feet rested on a Persian rug, pigmented in rich shades of chocolate and claret. I had no doubt it was a genuine.
I looked up, and Adam raised an eyebrow. Pay attention, Maddy. You’re obviously in the house of the person whose property you were trespassing on.
“I mean,” I hastily corrected, “what happened? How did I end up here?” A chill ran through me as I recalled the calloused hand covering my mouth before everything flashed black.
Adam raked his fingers through his messy hair. There was something insanely sensual about the way his long fingers lingered in the silky, dark strands; the way his eyes, blue but stormy, studied me. “Shouldn’t I be asking you that question, Madeleine?”
As crazy as it was, in that moment, all I could think was: Well, I guess he remembers me from high school.
My fingers absently traced the collar of the blue shirt—his shirt—while I tried to think of a plausible explanation. I glanced over at Adam, his eyes taking in the lazy movement of my hand and then traveling up to my too-thin tank. Unapologetic, he met my gaze, and his mouth turned up into a wickedly suggestive smile. I stilled, suddenly feeling incredibly warm but definitely overexposed. I struggled to arrange the damn blue shirt in such a way as to cover myself, while Adam looked on with amusement.
My mind screamed danger, but my body began to feel alive in a way that had been dormant for far too long. God, the sinful thoughts this man evoked. I needed to get a grip, but no. Unable, or maybe unwilling, to stop myself, I involuntarily licked my lips and allowed my eyes to wander over the unclothed parts of his body—the curves of his biceps, the impressive breadth of his broad shoulders, the expanse of his bare chest. My gaze descended to the perfectly shaped v of his torso, down to his hips, and just kind of lingered there.
Adam cleared his throat. Quickly, I looked away, questioning my sanity. Had I hit my head when I fainted?
“Madeleine.” Adam’s voice was low and seductive, served up with maybe a hint of jest. “If you were looking for that, you should have just rung the doorbell.”
