This was another very interesting and entertaining suspense novel by Ms. Wainscott. There were so many twists and turns and so many possible bad guys that you will be kept guessing until the very last chapter as to who is the bad guy!
Kim left behind a lot when she left her childhood home under the stressful circumstance of having accused the son of a prominent local family of murder. 10 years later she returns to Cypress after the death of her grandmother. What she finds is that things really haven't changed in the small everglades town and that memories are long when it comes to holding a grudge. Someone whats her gone and will go to great extremes to make sure she gets the message. Problem is Kim's tougher then she looks and she plans on staying.
Zell wants to dislike Kim but she is a strong individual that speaks to him in more ways then one. He is finding himself wanting to stick up for her even though it goes against the family. When things start happening to Kim he finds that he wants to help her and is afraid that the people that are messing with her are his family. Things are easy to ignore until someone tries to kill her. Now he can't turn and look the other way and further more, he doesn't want too. Problem is can they find out who wants to hurt Kim before they finally succeed?
This was a fast paced story that will keep you tied to the book until the final page! The chemistry between Zell and Kim is as hot as the Florida Everglades! This was a great book and Ms. Wainscott is now an author I will pick up based on her name alone. For a great suspense you can't beat on penned by Ms. Wainscott!
One of her best! Good plot and good ending.
I found this to be very slow and boring page after page and too many pages of descriptions that aren't necessary. by the 100 page mark I was bored and not interested in finding out anything about any of the characters. If you can stick with all the descriptions maybe you can wade through the book
Kim was still a teenager when she fled the Florida Everglades--and most people in her hometown of Cypress were glad to see her go. For Kim committed the cardinal small-town sin. She accused a local son of an unspeakable murder--and no one would ever let her forget it.
A decade later, Kim returns to Cypress to take over her late grandmother's bar. She hopes enough time has passed for her to go back to the only place she's ever called home. But the hatred Kim left behind is still waiting for her--and now she's in more danger than ever before.
It starts with a few dirt looks from the locals. Then a pick-up truck tries to run Kim off the road. The signs are all there. Someone wants Kim gone before more dirty secrets see the light of day. And if Kim doesn't go easy, a killer is going to make her wish she's never returned home.......
Im flees the everglades b/c she accused a local son of murder and now after a decade she is back. But there seems to be someone out there who don't want to see her return and tries to do something about it.
