BLURB:

Love and Mystery in the 6-oh-3 – Book 2
Who shot Lucy Watson’s estranged brother, the popular high school teacher who brought snacks for the staff and volunteered to help troubled students? When Lucy Watson returns to her hometown in New Hampshire to bury her brother, she learns law enforcement is looking into several suspects. But soon the search for the killer grows intensely personal for Lucy. The police discover a fierce argument occurred the day of the murder between Lucy’s brother and his best friend Liam McAllister, Lucy’s first love. The cops shift their focus to Liam. Determined to get justice, Lucy becomes involved in the mystery and must choose to put her faith in Liam one last time, or face the truth; she is in love with her brother’s murderer.

When former bad boy Liam McAllister runs into Lucy Watson, he feels the familiar hunger and tug of attraction that they once shared. Since their breakup five years ago, he’s regretted ending their relationship and dreams of winning her back. Now is his chance. He invites her to his bar and grill to show he’s a reformed, self-made businessman. But his plan comes apart. The bank threatens foreclosure on his establishment, and he falls under suspicion for the death of his pal and Lucy’s brother. Liam struggles to overcome his personal challenges while proving he’s changed. Can he convince Lucy to trust him, or is it too late for a second shot at love?

My Review:


This mystery is a great read, it's very exciting, there are so many twists and it is difficult to understand until the end who is the murderess.
Lucy returns to her hometown to bury her brother and find out who killed him. The greedy ex-wife Clarissa is one of the initial suspects. But among them there is also Liam, the best friend of her brother but also her ex-boyfriend. He had left her five years ago: that night she had imagined that he would make her a marriage proposal and instead he left her and went to a party. Will Lucy be able to discover the murderess? Will she give a second chance to her story with Liam?
It's part of a series but can be read as a standalone book, I have had no problem.

Nora LeDuc has done a great job of weaving together an engaging story that kept me completely spellbound from the first page to the very last. The plot is well developed and believable, has a good pace, interesting characters and a wonderful blend of romance and action. 
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a riveting story.

EXCERPT:


She wandered into the hall and glanced into a paneled den with a large-screen TV mounted on the wall. The leather furniture added to the masculine feel. A rawhide bone lay beside the recliner. Too homey.

She whirled around and slowed at the sight of the entryway. Fragments of Sullivan’s words played in her mind. In the front hall. Answered the door. Shot.

Her stomach clenched tight. Liam came up behind her as they inched forward. She halted. Sections of the wooden plank floor were stained rust-colored. Ryan’s blood. Lightness whirled in her head. Her legs threatened to fold under her.

Brown splatters streaked the white walls.

She stumbled back against Liam. He wrapped his arm around her waist to support her and pointed. Her gaze ran over the trail of spatter near the door.

There, pennies were stuck above the knob. It took a few seconds to realize the coins had been grouped to form letters that spelled: CHEAT.
