Last month I shared a spotlight (and guest post) from Lauren,
and today I have the book back for my promised review!
Joshua’s eldest son, Joshua “J.J.” Thornton Jr., has graduated at the top of his class from law school and returns home to spend the summer studying for the bar exam. However, to Joshua’s and Cameron’s shock and dismay, J.J. moves into the main house at Russell Ridge Farm, the largest dairy farm in the Ohio Valley, to rekindle a romance with Suellen Russell, a onetime leader of a rock group who’s twice his age. Quickly, they learn that she has been keeping a deep dark secret.
The move brings long-buried tensions between the father and son to the surface. But when a brutal killer strikes, the Lovers in Crime must set all differences aside to solve the crime before J.J. ends up in the cross hairs of a murderer.

I had actually not read any of the other books in this series, but having read others Lauren has written, I wasn't worried about coming into the series late, and I was right. Lauren gives you the info you need, so that as a reader, you don't feel lost.
This book quickly turns into a typical Lauren page turner! You may find yourself reading VERY late into the night, as I did, finishing the story! It is an interesting tale of appearances not being what they seem, and how love lands where it wants, and not where expected. It is also a story of reconciliation and grace, and one that will ultimately leave you smiling and wanting to read the next book in the series!
