 Charlie and Marian arrive home from their honeymoon and are settling into married life while his parents are visiting them in Georgia. While at a party at The Primrose hosted by Marian's best friend Joan Delany a man is murdered in the woods nearby. Everybody is in shock but no one is in shock more than Marian and Charlie when the evidence starts piling up against their dear friend.

 While Marian and Charlie's Ma cares for their friend, Charlie now acting Chief of Police and his Da take on the case. However where this case leads them is more shocking than they could believe. As the stories, sorted details and undeniable facts come to light Charlie, his Da and his team have their worked cut out for them.

 During the murder investigation to capture the killer and clear his friend's name, a twisted connection between the top suspects come to light. Meanwhile, the murderer is progressing with a substantial victim count across multiple counties. Charlie is now feeling the pressure and believes he needs to move quickly before the outcome of this investigation changes the landscape of his life forever.

 As always I love the story of Charlie and Marian, their characters are timeless. And so are the stories since I always seem to forget they are set in the the lack of cell phone use too. The story line in this book definitely showed a seedier side of life but also how one person could surpass it, and then again potentially be pulled back into it. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Looking forward to reading Flirting With Time.
