"Kate knows the truth is out there--but if she's right, that means a killer is out there too.
Research scientists Kate Adams and Daisy Leacock were on the brink of a breakthrough for treating depression with herbal medicine when Daisy was suddenly found dead. Kate knows that her mentor's death wasn't suicide or a careless accident--and she's determined to do whatever it takes to unearth the truth about what happened to the woman who changed her life. Former FBI agent Tom Parker is finding it hard to adjust to life back in his hometown of Port Aster. Though an old buddy gave him a job as a detective on the local police force, not everyone approves. Tom's just trying to keep a low profile, so when Kate Adams demands he reopen the investigation into her friend's death, he knows his job is at stake. But despite his attraction to her, Tom thinks Kate may have something to hide. As evidence mounts, a web of intrigue is woven around the sleepy town of Port Aster. Can Kate uncover the truth? Or will Tom stand in her way?"
I really enjoyed reading this book. There were quite a few twists and turns throughout that kept the reader guessing. I loved the character of Kate Adams. She is so full of spunk and tenacity. She's the only one in town who believes that her friend did not die by suicide and does her best to try to convince the police. Ms. Orchard did a wonderful job of keeping me guessing as to who did it. The ending left me wanting more, and I cannot wait for the next book in the series!
