Deeper Than Need
St. Martin's, Jun 3 2014, $7.99
Trinity Ewing and her son Micah move to Madison, Indiana where she got a great price on the fixer-upper Frampton house. She hires contractor Noah Benningfield to make repairs. He knows why the price was low as he spent the last two decades avoiding the home where his beloved Lana lived before she vanished. Noah believes David Sutter killed Lana though her body was never found and he lacks enough proof.
Calling his client the mistress of Temptation City while she realizes she should have hired the sexagenarian contractor, both struggle to ignore their attraction as he has not moved past Lana and she has trust issues. When he rips up the rotted floor, Noah finds human female remains.
The fourth Secrets & Shadows romantic suspense (see eBook novellas (not read by me): Long For Me, Break For Me and Burn For Me) is an entertaining tale made fresh by motor mouth anti-precocious Micah. There are too many tertiary first-hand commentary that enable the readers to meet the townsfolk but at the cost of slowing down the investigation. Still fans will enjoy the mom and the contractor falling in love while the case of the long buried Jane Doe haunts Madison residents for different reasons.
