Alanna has been plagued by tragedy. So it should come as no surprise that in the beauty that surrounds Charleston, all is not as it seems.
When her husband is killed by a car bomb while their band is on tour in Charleston, Alanna doesn’t know where to turn. Her father-in-law is threatening to take custody of the baby she carries, but the one thing she knows for sure is that she can’t lose the last piece of Liam she has left.
Their manager offers her a marriage of convenience to gain her U.S. citizenship and allow her to escape her father-in-law’s control. It seems like the perfect solution . . . but her doubts begin almost as soon as she arrives at Barry’s family home, a decaying mansion surrounded by swamp.
To make matters worse, Liam’s best friend survived the car bomb. She’s never really liked Jesse and now she can’t seem to get away from him. When he takes Liam’s place in their band, it’s almost more than she can bear.
But then things start happening. Things that could easily cost Alanna her life—or the life of her unborn child. Are they merely coincidences? Or is there something much more sinister at work?

This book was different than any other romantic suspense book I’ve read. Unfortunately, I can’t say much about why because it would give things away. I’ll say this though, that things aren’t as they seem. At first, I didn’t really like it and was frustrated about not getting the point of view of the one character and the characters were oblivious or making excuses for things. But once I figured out what was happening, I was excited to see how it would end and how things would be revealed to the characters. Some of the Irish wording and phrasing made it a little harder to get into but made it more authentic. I found it an interesting story that was very different from anything I’ve read. The romance was different from what I was expecting and was as big of a focal point as I thought it would be. I enjoyed the suspense as normal in Colleen Coble’s books.

For those who have been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) or have the symptoms of PCOS, this is an excellent resource. It is very informative and fairly easy to understand. She uses some medical language but explains what she means in a way most people will understand. Dr. Fiona McCulloch addresses every aspect that affects women with PCOS and gives steps that work to improve symptoms and explains how it helps with the symptoms. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and because of how informative and easy to understand it was, I bought a copy so I could refer to it in the future.
