Who wants Kylie Monroe dead? That's the question Texas sheriff Lucas Creed has to answer before the ex-cop turned journalist and her unborn child become casualties. Lucas has been avoiding Kylie for three years, blaming her for his wife's death. In the meantime, Kylie has taken dramatic steps to give Lucas back his life -- but when the danger passes, will she be able to walk away from the man she always loved? In Secret Surrogate (3), by Delores Fossen, the characters' lack of communication and narrow focus take the edge off an otherwise well-written story.
