When she was a young child, Audrey Sherrod lost her brother to a serial killer. Now as a grief counselor, she uses her loss as a way to help those in need.
Special Agent J.D. Cass has always been a firm believer in having casual affairs and not letting anyone close. When he finds out he has a teenage daughter, he is not sure how to react and finds he has made a mess of things.
When Audrey first meets J.D. she does not think much of him, and as she gets to know him better, her opinion of him does not change much. As a new case opens for J.D. he finds a connection between this new crime and an old case that involves Audrey. She is not sure how to handle her feelings for J.D. and fights her feelings of passion and love that are continuously growing for the sexy agent. Can J.D. crack the case before time runs out for the next victim?
Ms. Barton has a way of writing that has the reader pondering who did what. Don’t Cry is a tale with so many different suspects that you are not sure who the killer is. I like that the characters have flaws that are relatable to the reader. The way J.D. and his daughter go back and forth and struggle to find their niche in each others’ lives made this novel more believable. The conclusion of this book will leave you with the impression of utter amazement as the puzzle pieces finally are put in their places and you learn who the Rocking Chair Killer is and what happened to Audrey’s brother twenty five years ago.
