Investigator Elise Lapier is in trouble. The man she has been investigating has turned the tables and is stalking her. Running away from the man chasing her, she flees to her supervisor’s cottage in Gull Cove, a secluded cove on the rugged Washington coast, where she meets Adam Wayne. The reclusive caretaker of the cottages is obsessed with avenging the death of his fiancé. With Elise’s arrival, he believes he will finally have his chance for revenge. He is convinced that Elise came to him for help and he will help her, but only if she tells him the identity of the man who killed his fiance. The only problem, Elise doesn’t know who the man is. All she’d discovered about him was that he was a ghost. Running out of time and options, she has to discover the true identity of the man who is stalking her and who murdered Adam’s fiance, or die.

***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’s  Review***
I love a good mystery with a side of romance and this book had both. I enjoyed that the story revolved more around the mystery of who the stalker is and why he’s after the main female character, Elise, than it did on the romance. I felt like I was a detective on an adventure to catch the bad guy.The story is told in third person which was fantastic for this story. I was able to know what all the characters, minus the bad guy, were thinking, feeling and doing.

The characters were extremely likeable and well done. Elise has so much spunk and backbone. I enjoyed how she never backed down from Adam and his “I have to protect you and find the answer myself” nonsense.

To me, Adam grew the most. You’ll enjoy reading the emotional journey he goes through and find that deep down, he’s trying to find someone worth loving. You will probably want to smack him around though a little because he’s really rude to Elise when they meet. But by the end of the book, like me, you will love him.

My favorite character though, was Roddy. That old guy had me in stitches. I loved watching him put Adam in is place and telling him things that while hard to hear, needed to be said. He reminded me a lot of Jackson Gibbs, the father of Gibbs from NCIS if you watch.

For those who don’t like cliffhangers, you’re in luck! No cliffhanger and you get a happily ever after. This is the first in a series and I hope to read more from Ms. Jones. Pick up your copy today and get lost in the mystery!
