Book Summary:

Every stage actress wants fans, but what happens when one goes too far?

Emmy has the perfect life— a house on the beach, a successful career headlining the local theater, and love. But when a brutal murder brings unimaginable grief, Emmy’s world comes crashing down. As she tries to pick up the pieces, she can’t seem to avoid Josh, the new fireman in town.

Emmy does her best to fight the sizzle in her chest when Josh is near. But with the stalker still out there, terrorizing her and those she cares about, she can’t fall for anyone—especially Josh, a suspect in the murder investigation.

If Emmy allows a man to get close, it’s not just her heart she puts at risk, it’s her life.

Cheryls review

Fun, clean, and suspenseful. This was a quick read that kept me guessing. I thought I had solved the mystery, but I was wrong. Strong characters with interesting lives. I liked how the main characters were loyal to family values, even when their feelings led them other directions. I am not a big fan of stories that involve crime scenes and violence. This one was not overly graphic and the heroic main characters made the whole thing worth it.
