About the Book:

Jayne Ann Krentz, the New York Times bestselling author of Secret Sisters, delivers a thrilling novel of the deceptions we hide behind, the passions we surrender to, and the lengths we’ll go to for the truth...

When Charlotte Sawyer is unable to contact her stepsister, Jocelyn, to tell her that one of her closest friends was found dead, she discovers that Jocelyn has vanished.  

Beautiful, brilliant—and reckless—Jocelyn has gone off the grid before, but never like this. In a desperate effort to find her, Charlotte joins forces with Max Cutler, a struggling PI who recently moved to Seattle after his previous career as a criminal profiler went down in flames—literally. Burned out, divorced and almost broke, Max needs the job.   

After surviving a near-fatal attack, Charlotte and Max turn to Jocelyn’s closest friends, women in a Seattle-based online investment club, for answers. But what they find is chilling...

When her uneasy alliance with Max turns into a full-blown affair, Charlotte has no choice but to trust him with her life. For the shadows of Jocelyn’s past are threatening to consume her—and anyone else who gets in their way...

My Review:

I was recently given the opportunity to read the second book in this Cutler, Sutter & Solinas series by Jayne Ann Krentz, "Promise Not to Tell", to be released in January 2018.  It was an Advance Review Copy (ARC).  At the time, I didn't realize it was Book #2 and actually it can be read as a stand-alone.  I'll be posting my review of that book later.  The reason I'm mentioning this is because I loved that book so much that I absolutely HAD to go back and read Book #1.  This one.  Actually, I purchased the Audible version of the book, which I must say is FABULOUS!

Jayne Ann Krentz has the ability to make her characters come to life, with multi-dimensional personalities that make them seem so real.  Max and Charlotte had strengths and weaknesses and together they dealt with each situation thrown before them.  Once I started listening to this book, I could not stop.

Max is a private investigator hired to look into the death of a young woman.  Was it murder or suicide?  And how is this death attached to Charlotte's missing stepsister?  When Max and Charlotte team up to discover all the twists and turns in this mystery, more than a few answers turn up... and the heat between the two turns up a notch too!

This may not have been my favorite of Jayne Ann Krentz's novels, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it.
