Library Journal Review

Twenty-five-year-old Alexandra Gaither is a Texas state prosecutor, whose mother, Celina, was murdered when she was an infant. Since her grandmother has always considered her the cause of the murder, Alex is driven to solve the mystery of her mother's death in an effort to earn her grandmother's love. Strangely, she gets permission from the state district attorney to reopen the case but must complete her investigation in one month's time. Alex has three suspects: her mother's lover, Sheriff Reede Lambert; town mogul Angus Minton; and Minton's son Junior. Sexual tension grows immediately between Alex and Reede even though he is 25 years her senior and could possibly be her father. Angus pushes Junior to seduce Alex in order to halt the investigation, which threatens his plans for a racetrack. The creepy result is that the same two men who loved the mother become rivals for the affections of the daughter. Alex, who is described as a strong, self-made woman, comes across as a neurotic weakling who wreaks havoc in order to satisfy her own needs. Award-winning reader Dick Hill does his usual outstanding presentation; however, even he cannot save this one. The characters and the plots are unbelievable and unappealing. Purchase only for adult fiction collections where Brown is a favorite.-Nancy Reed, Immanuel Baptist Church Lib., Paducah, KY (c) Copyright 2010.
