IN EILEEN CARR'S HEART-POUNDING ROMANTIC SUSPENSE DEBUT, AN UNSPEAKABLE CRIME WITH A MYSTERIOUS TWIST IS ONLY THE BEGINNING....

SHE' S NO STRANGER TO THE DARKEST PLACES IN THE HUMAN MIND...

Devoted to her troubled clients, clinical psychologist Aimee Gannon never thought she'd be entangled in a murder investigation. But a middle-of-the-night phone call from the Sacramento PD delivers a shock: Aimee's rebellious seventeen-year-old patient Taylor Dawkin could be a suspect in the gruesome murder of her own parents. Traumatized by the events of that fatal night, Taylor is left catatonic...and Aimee is desperate to reach beyond her silence to uncover the truth.

BUT HE' S SEEN THE EVIDENCE FIRSTHAND...

Detective Josh Wolf needs Aimee's help to decipher the clues behind a pattern of rectangles and circles that Taylor drew in blood at the crime scene. Unfortunately, he can't keep his mind off the beautiful psychologist — those long legs, that irritating stubborn streak. But he can't afford a moment's distraction: After Aimee is attacked, she and Josh must race to uncover Taylor's terrifying secret...before the deadly shadows of the past strike again.

Review:

"Carr's romantic suspense debut starts off like a rocket as teenager Taylor Dawkin is accused of gruesomely murdering her parents. Despite the evidence pointing to Taylor, psychologist Aimee Gannon is certain the traumatized, nearly catatonic girl is a victim. Sacramento Police detectives Josh Wolf and Elise Jacobs share Aimee's hunch that the killer is a man, and their suspicions fall on the Dawkins' business partners, the handsome, powerful and enigmatic father and son, Carl and Sean Walter. Attraction flares between Aimee and Josh as they tackle the case, unaware that Aimee is being stalked by someone completely different. Anyone familiar with children will find the central mystery an easy guess, but the characters are engaging and distinct, with complex motivations, and the pacing of the thriller is so inexorable it almost overshadows the romance." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

From an exciting new voice in romantic suspense comes a sizzling page-turner about a clinical psychologist who never thought she'd become entangled in a murder investigation. Original.
