Romance Suspense

Edie Swann roars into Redbud on her motorcycle, nabs a bartending job at the local hotspot and then sets about avenging her father's death. For years, she plotted to make the men who ran her father out of Redbud pay for their part in his death. All she wants is to the men who were somehow involved in the situation that ended with her father's death. Then she can question them and maybe get real answers.

But Edie doesn't plan on dealing with Redbud's determined and sexy sheriff, Holt Drennan. And as for Holt, he may be more entranced with the tattooed and spirited bartender than he should be, but that doesn't mean he'll ignore Edie's involvement in suspicious deaths.

Strong emotions pack a wallop in Solomon's latest romantic suspense. You'll root for the little girl in Edie who just wants to know what happened to her daddy, but you'll cheer on the tough woman she's become and admire her determined look for answers. Holt, of course, is a dreamy hero -- made even more attractive by his devotion to his daughter. Solomon delivers with her usual attention to detail and intriguing characters.

Revenge. Edie Swann has hungered for it since she fled her hometown as a little girl. Now she's returned, ready for payback. Armed with a list of names, she leaves each one a chilling sign that they have blood on their hands. Her father's blood. What happens next turns her own blood cold: one by one, the men she's targeted start dying.

Sheriff Holt Drennen knows Edie is hiding something. She has a haunted look in her eyes and a defiant spirit, yet he can't believe she's a murderer. As the body count rises and all evidence points to Edie, Holt is torn between the town he's sworn to protect and the woman he's come to desire. But nothing is what it seems. Long buried secrets begin to surface, and a killer won't be satisfied until the sins of the past are paid in full--this time with Edie's blood.
