PLAYING WITH FIRE

Author(s): 

Rochelle's novel is filled with references to murder and mayhem from the heroine's past. Small-town complacency and too easily resolved misunderstandings erode the tension, and in the early chapters, the story switches back and forth between past and present, slowing the pace.

Her mother's death brings Cassie Fitzgerald back to her hometown on a quest to learn more about the murder of her sister six years earlier. In addition to her sister's murder and her father's suspicious death, Cassie has unresolved business with Cole Martin.

Her first love, Cole broke her heart by dumping Cassie for her pregnant -- and now deceased -- sister. Cole and Cassie restore their relationship while searching for the truth behind the unexplained deaths of Cassie's family members. (TriskelionPublishing.com, dl $2.99)
