I maybe love Tami Hoag 's early romances and I am puzzled how an author who does romance so well and mystery so well, ca n't expec to blend to two in this book.Elizabeth has been kicked to the curb by her SOB, rich ex-husband.

One thing that grated on my nerves a bit was the main haracter 's use of he term of endearment " sugar ".

( I 'll save Kay Scarpetta for the best medical examiner ever, though ...) .I do n't sa " Still Waters " is part of any series, like her Elena Estes series or the Bayou Breaux series ( al are worth th read) .Elizabeth Stuart is a twice-divorced Texan who has gone from poor to rich back to poor and has packed up her life ( after her rich second-ex-husband shredded her name and reputation to Atlanta society) and her teenage on and moved to Minnesota.

he only big mistake she made was stumbling upon the body of Jarrold Jarvis, his throat slashed and his body slumped over in his car.Somewhere in the mess, she reports the truth, her nephew is a uspect, an Amishman gets a little ( forbidden) crush on her as he repairs her house, and he local sheriff butts heads with her.

horro is well paced and with some additional deaths and attacks and missing tourist, the mystery keeps you guessing.Elizabeth has just gone through a horror of a divorce with her ex-husband making her ook like a slut who will sleep with anything.

Similarly, he is complete jerk to Elizabeth believing all the lies and treating her like a slut.

As I genuinely did like Ms. Hoag 's writing and plot, I would certainl give her books go.

It 's ore than water logged and still in Florida:) I eally enjoy Hoag 's books but this one, while njoyable, annoyed me a bit.

sheriff in town, Dane, is gorgeous and dislikes women.
