Felicity and her Golden Retriever, JJ, work with special needs children in the school district. They are both super sweet souls, and from the very beginning, I knew I was going to love them. My heart broke for her when she found out that her birth mother had died - she not only mourned the person but the future possibilities of getting to know her better.
As she digs deeper into her birth mother’s life, Felicity is convinced that she didn’t commit suicide. Everything about her personal belongings and journals points to a woman content and happy with her life. But there’s only one person who thinks she might be onto something. Thankfully, that’s Officer Darren Willis, the detective in charge of the investigation. But his boss is pressuring to close this supposedly open and shut case quickly.
Felicity digs in and keeps looking, finding herself the target of several deadly incidents. Darren and Felicity come together through the tragedy and danger - with JJ right by her side - and find their feelings for each other grow daily.
Unfortunately, I figured out the who-dun-it way too early. The only reason this didn’t get a 5-star review. I like to have the mystery remain just that - a mystery - until the characters are just about to figure it out - not right at the beginning of the case. The romance though - the romance was strong in this one, and it was lovely. I highly recommend if you don’t mind figuring things out too soon.
