HUSBAND AND LOVER
Julia Innes is shocked when her surgeon husband, Thomas, is accused of murder. Especially since the murderwhich took the life of Thomas' first wifehappened 12 years ago and another man is in prison for the crime. Now new evidence comes to light that sets the convicted man free and has Julia working to prove her husband's innocence.
Cameron Lazlo is the homicide detective who "solved" the murder years ago, and he's determined to prove he was right. But as more time passes, it looks as if Thomas just may be the guilty party. It also doesn't help that Cam is extremely attracted to Julie and greatly dislikes Thomas. Soon Julie realizes that the marriage she always thought of as
satisfactory is, in fact, quite empty.
The mystery is so engrossing that
you won't want to put this book down. Wonderfully suspenseful, Erickson's novel also features a nice understated romance. Secondary characters add
to the overall enjoyment of this well-written romantic suspense. (Dec., 390 pp., $6.99)
