A woman’s search for her half-sister forces her into an alliance with a sexy PI—and into the path of a killer waiting for the right moment to strike—in Meryl Sawyer’s captivating tale of romantic suspense
South Beach isn’t far from Coral Gables, but to Taylor Maxwell, it’s a world away from the place where she was born and raised. Yet nothing, not even the tall, dark, and handsome man who just moved in across the courtyard, can distract her from her problems. Her terminally ill mother just dropped a bombshell: Taylor has an older sister who was given up for adoption thirty years ago, and Taylor’s mother has hired a security firm to find her.
Enter Taylor’s sexy neighbor, PI Shane Donovan who just got a lead on the woman who could be Taylor’s long-lost sibling. Taylor and Shane track her down in New Orleans, but with the family’s multimillion-dollar cosmetics company at stake, the Maxwells want the woman in question to undergo a DNA test. Then, just as Taylor’s relationship with Shane heats up, a web of tangled secrets is exposed and a killer strikes, with a plan to destroy Taylor’s family—and ensure that Taylor never wakes up again.
