"Is my father a murderer?"

Caring for a mother with Alzheimer's was heartbreaking enough for Lindsey Merrill. But when her mother made bizarre but adamant claims that Lindsey's loving father was a killer, it was too much to bear. So she turned to detective Alan Cameron for guidance. Before long, the single dad's soothing reassurances morphed into a smoldering attraction….

Evidence quickly mounted that all was not as it seemed in the Merrill family. As a professional, Alan was obliged to pursue the case—as a man, he had to shield this special woman from pain. Would his shocking discovery break her heart just as he was making it his very own?

Kathleen Creighton is one damn fine writer!

When Lindsey's ailing, elderly mother begins to make outlandish claims against her father, she turns to Homocide Detective Alan Cameron to help find answers. She refuses to believe that the man she calls Dad is a murderer. That he killed her true father and attempted the same of her mom. Oh, and there's a long lost brother out there living without a clue to where his parents are.

Reading romantic suspense is always a treat for the imagination. So many possibilities. The tease of just how many different directions this story could go, as with any suspenseful read, is what keeps you glued to the pages, despite the subtle romance and its lack of action. It's not so common though to find an ending such as the one in this book. All too often a story will veer drastically, but sometimes things just happen to be exactly what they are. No imagination required. 5 out of 5 stars.

Oooh, intriguing.

Yeah, if patient with Alzheimer's suddenly made claims such as that things would be *immediately* checked out. Medical evaluations, psych exams, family inquiry..and if they had passed all, which is rare, a serious criminal investigation would've proceeded.

The medical community take that shit seriously here in OK. If it wasn't taken as seriously then there would've been questions over the meds. *halfsmile* Stuff like this is fascinating as HELL! When applied to the fictional stand point.

Not so much in RL. :/

Funny how I've been recently attracted to the suspense genre but in the erotica area. XD

Read faster. *snickers* I'm getting a kick out of some of these reads of yours.
