If the hours don’t kill you, the accused just might.
Mia Quinn is a Seattle prosecutor working on high profile cases in the Violent Crimes unit while juggling the impossible demands of single parenthood. Her husband, Scott, was killed in a car crash that homicide detective Charlie Carlson now believes was no accident. Charlie’s instincts and professional record make it impossible for Mia to refute the evidence she’d rather not believe.
When the powers that be refuse to reopen the case, it’s up to Mia and Charlie to investigate, all the while trying to deny a growing attraction between them. Was her accountant husband really in league with nefarious criminals? And who is the young woman whose photo they find on his computer?
Uncovering the truth may hurt Mia in more ways than one.
My Thoughts:
Ms Wiehl is the author of 8 fiction titles...the most recent being A Deadly Business:  A Mia Quinn Mystery.  There were many things that caused this book to fall flat for me.  The story seemed "forced" in so many places.  The characters were just thrown out there with little back story causing the book to seem as if it was just written in a hurry.  The potential for a great mystery was present, but the plot was predictable and the characters were not believable.  This was my first book by Wiehl and I would be hard pressed to read another one.

*I was sent a complimentary copy of the book by the publisher - Thomas Nelson - for the purpose of providing this review.
Happy Reading,
