KILLING ME SOFTLY

Author(s): 
Reporter Renee Fox is writing about the disappearance of Savannah Trahan, a missing woman who was a friend of hers. Savannah's body was never recovered, and although her boyfriend, New Orleans police detective Cain Robichaud, is suspected of her murder, he's acquitted of all charges. Renee will not rest until she can determine who killed Savannah and why.

Haunted by his past, Cain has never forgotten what happened to Savannah, and he hasn't given up hope of finding her. But someone wants the ghosts to stay quiet, and now Cain has to find a killer and keep another woman safe. Will he be able to do that -- or will a killer close to him take someone away from him again?

This is an intricate story that uses flashbacks to inform readers about Cain and Savannah's relationship. Plenty of surprises will keep readers engaged, and the chemistry between Cain and Renee is hotter then a New Orleans summer night. (May, 448 pp., $5.99)
