Lorie has made some bad choices in her life and for the past nine years, since she moved back home to a small town, she has been paying the price for her mistakes; including losing the man she has always loved. But people she knows have been murdered, and now her life has been threatened.
Sheriff Mike Birkett has been angry with Lorie since she left him years before. He moved on, married, and had children. But his wife has died, and he is now raising their kids on his own. At first, he does not believe the threats Lorie has received, but when they are proven true, he vows to do whatever he can to protect her no matter what he feels for her.
The murders follow a serial killer’s path. There is one common denominator connecting them all, a movie in which they all acted. Who is the killer and why pick this group of people? Mike and Lorie continue to fight their deep attraction for each other, but there may not be a future for them as neither can forgive each other for the past.
Beverly Barton has written another outstanding book. I have read other books by this author and she never disappoints with her stories. Dead by Midnight has romance, suspense, strong women, hot men and even a few bad guys, too. Everything you could want in a great book. Go get your copy today.
