"Monroe keeps the suspense high, and readers will draw a bated breath with the turn of each page."--"Booklist"
Dolores Reese spent her childhood in foster care, like Floyd Watson, a local boy who intrigues her from the moment they meet. When one bad decision sends an innocent Floyd to prison for life, Dolores promises to stick by him. But while Floyd's world stands still, Dolores's horizons open up in exciting new ways. Paul Dunne is an accomplished businessman who promises her the kind of future she's always wanted--the kind she once imagined having with Floyd. But when Floyd is suddenly freed on new evidence, Dolores is torn and must make a fateful decision. And if she isn't careful, Dolores just might find out what happens when love, dishonesty, and dangerous jealousy collide
."Monroe serves up a tasty dish of murder, deception, lust, and just deserts."
