Jazzy Talbot and Reve Sorrell couldn't be more different, even though they just might be twins. Reve was found abandoned in a trash can in a city far away from Cherokee Pointe, Tennessee, and adopted by a wealthy couple. Jazzy has always been told that her mother died shortly after giving birth.

Reve and Jazzy decide to band together to pursue the dark mystery of their past. The one fly in Reve's ointment is the presence of handsome sheriff Jacob Butler. Reve and Jacob have been at each other's throats since they first met; being forced into close proximity is setting off the sparks.

Unfortunately, Cherokee Pointe is once again playing host to a serial killer. This one has been targeting redheaded prostitutes for decades. When the killer sees redheaded Reve and Jazzy together, it tips him over the edge. It is now only a question of which one does he go after first?

You know you're in for a great romantic thrill ride whenever you pick up a Beverly Barton book. As Good as Dead rounds out what has been a truly electrifying trilogy. These characters are wonderfully intense, complex and just plain fascinating. (Sep., 352 pp., $6.99)
