  • It's been eighteen years since TV crime reporter Andi Hollister's sister was murdered. The confessed killer is behind bars, and the execution date is looming. But when a letter surfaces stating that the condemned killer didn't actually do it, Detective Will Kincaide of the Memphis Cold Case Unit will stop at nothing to help Andi get to the bottom of it. After all, this case is personal: the person who confessed to the crime is Will's cousin. They have less than a week to find the real killer before the wrong person is executed. But much can be accomplished in that week--including uncovering police corruption, running for your life, and falling in love.

    My Review:

    This was a decent Christian romantic suspense book. They mystery and suspense factors were good. The plot was well developed and interesting. I did not like the main character Andi's pain pill addiction though. It did not work as part of the story and I felt it detracted from it. Will Kincaide has liked Andi for years but she is his best friend's sister. Andi has a tendency for trouble as a tv crime reporter. She puts herself and her friend in danger. The main plot of this story is proving Will's cousin who is on death row innocent before he is put to sleep. I did guess who really did it but not until close to the end. The romance development between Will and Andi was okay. The conclusion was good and fit the story. This is the first book in a new series called Memphis Cold Cases. I look forward to reading book two.
