The Book (from publisher's website): COMING HOME IS MURDER...
Revenge. Edie Swann has hungered for it since she fled her hometown as a little girl. Now she's returned, ready for payback. Armed with a list of names, she leaves each one a chilling sign that they have blood on their hands. Her father's blood. What happens next turns her own blood cold: one by one, the men she's targeted start dying.
Sheriff Holt Drennen knows Edie is hiding something. She has a haunted look in her eyes and a defiant spirit, yet he can't believe she's a murderer. As the body count rises and all evidence points to Edie, Holt is torn between the town he's sworn to protect and the woman he's come to desire. But nothing is what it seems. Long buried secrets begin to surface, and a killer won't be satisfied until the sins of the past are paid in full--this time with Edie's blood.
About Annie from publisher's website:
A native New Yorker, RITA-winning author Annie Solomon has been dreaming up stories since she was ten. After a twelve-year career in advertising, where she rose to Vice President and Head Writer at a mid-size agency, she abandoned the air conditioners, furnaces and heat pumps of her professional life for her first love—romance. An avid knitter, she now lives in Nashville with her husband and daughter.
My Review: Edie is new in town. She is a dark haired mysterious beauty that arrives in town on a Harley and on a mission. Of course Edie's mission is her own, and she has no intention of getting too attached to this town. This is the town that cost her everything, and certainly she wants revenge on her own terms. However, Edie is not going to get in and out that easily. She meets the handsome sheriff whom she is drawn to despite her own intentions. But someone else seems to have their own agenda with regards to revenge and it is looking that Edie just might be set up to take the fall.
This novel holds a little suspense, a little romance, a pinch or two of sex and a lot of guessing. I put myself in Edie's shoes. Would I be able to go back to the place of so much pain in order to find justice and redemption for a wrong? I believe if every good thing in life was pulled away from me I just might, but again, if you hold on to pain you can not let go for love. It was nice to see the romance blossom with Edie and Holt. It was nice seeing them let go. Edie was very different from anyone Holt had known in the past, and Holt simply was the first man it seems to get into Edie's heart. It was nice to see this thread in the story. Of course, the greatest thing for me is just finding a mystery that I couldn't solve too quickly. That was a gift and I am so glad that Annie Solomon chose to share that gift with us.
If you like suspense with a little bit of romance mixed in, definitely pick this one up.
