When she and attorney Charles Britton are clued in to a frightening plot involving a reality singing competition, they must work together — despite their warring feelings for each other — to keep their clients and themselves safe. Can Tessa finally forgive Charles, or will holding on to hurt feelings ruin their professional relationship as well? (ZONDERVAN, Nov., 336 pp., $12.99)
