I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. I receive no compensation for reviews.
Amanda Stevens is a new author for me but I can tell yo know she is certainly on my radar. This book grabbed my attention from the get go and din’t let go. The romance in this one is a slow burn sort of romance. It isn’t the sudden heat that other books have but I find it refreshing here. They don’t jump right into bed or anything of the sort. They take it slow so that it seems much more plausible in the story line.
Nikki is the coroner Echo Lake and she has seen all sorts of death. Even the death of people she knows but the body that comes out of the lake is more personal than ever. It’s the body of her friend and she will have to team up with someone from her past to figure out what happened.
Adam is the police detective who finds the body while at his grandmother’s house. When he sees Nikki is surprised as she is not the girl he once knew. Together they have to figure out what happened to Charles. He had been trying to tell them something before his death and know they can figure out the clues.

I love the book cover and synopsis. Thanks for sharing your awesome review. This sounds like a must read for me.
This sounds like an interesting read. A slow burn romance that you mentioned would be a good change of pace for me, as most books I’ve been reading has the opposite! This will keep me on the edge, I think!
