Publisher's Summary

Dark secrets surface in the third Widow’s Island novella by number one Wall Street Journal best-selling author Melinda Leigh.

When a body washes up on the state park beach, Deputy Tessa Black’s experience as a former Seattle detective tells her that the death was not an accident. All evidence points to another murder on the remote island.

The victim is a local contractor with a shockingly long list of enemies. The more locals Tessa interviews, the more people she suspects - from the bitter ex-wife and estranged current wife to disgruntled former clients and employees. They all have different reasons to want him dead.

As Tessa’s investigation heats up, arson and a vicious assault convince her the killer is desperate to hide his crime - and that she’d better solve the case before he claims another victim.

Good suspense

This book has an enjoyable setting and enjoyable characters. The suspense is good. The narration is good but not as enjoyable for me as some.

Enjoying the series

I've enjoyed listening to the stories. I like the that wrote the book you're still learning about the main characters their lives and their relationship if not just call about the crime. one thing that does bother me is there's a lot of retelling in each book about things we've already heard in the previous book. I don't mind short synopsis of previous information but it seems to get drawn out longer and longer each book. on to the next book...

Who didn’t do it?

The investigation into this guy’s death unearths so many people who didn’t like him it’s hard to find the killer. Tessa and Logan work well together and learn more about their budding relationship.

Melinda Leigh Never Disappoints

I'm enjoying this interesting series of small, separate stories. Featuring the residents of a place called Widow's Island, the full series will not only tell a story in small bites but will combine to tell a much larger tale. Short stories are not usually my go to, but I love the author, so I gave it a shot. So glad I did.

Clean Suspenseful romance

Now I usually like a little steam with my romance but this was still excellent. Melinda Leigh knows how to create a scene and make it come alive in your mind. These books, I feel,should definitely be read in order. It helps to know the history of at least one storyline. I will be reading the next one.

Nice and short

Perfect length for a couple of hikes. These Widows Island stories are very entertaining. They are solved quickly by interesting characters.
