“Small town mystery and intrigue. I kept questioning who this killer is, and we obviously know is a part of society. But yeah, this aspect of these books is like catnip for me. ”
~ Under the Covers
We left off the previous book with Brannon having just found out that Hannah is pregnant… and she’s lost her memory after a run in with a killer still on the loose. I was itching to get to this book because their relationship in the first one was very explosive. The chemistry, the heat, everything was combustible. but then I feel like she loses her memory and Brannon lost some of his steam! I found the couple in this book to have a different kind of chemistry than what I enjoyed about them in the first book, and I think that would’ve been ok for the very beginning but should’ve come back a bit as we continued reading.
I did still enjoy Brannon and Hannah together, they were just a bit “cuter” than I wanted them to be. They’ve always been attracted to each other but never made a move until recently. He has a quick change of heart about their relationship after her accident. She forgets a bit what made her spunky to begin with.
Nonetheless, this book steps it up in the mystery department. We do find out there’s more going on in this town and lurking around the McKay family then just Neve’s old boyfriend who was taken care of in the first book. That is one thing I think Ms. Walker always writes really well. Small town mystery and intrigue. I kept questioning who this killer is, and we obviously know is a part of society. But yeah, this aspect of these books is like catnip for me.
The small town feel is on point, we do switch around several POVs which is great for giving us a good feel for what’s going on. I think being in the bad guys head is always interesting because you are constantly looking for clues.
Obviously this leaves the next book setup for the last McKay sibling and the sheriff to get their second chance. I’m hoping this will be my fave in the series because I love the setup in that story! High school sweethearts, he’s the boy from the wrong side of the track who has now made himself into a respectable member of society. He’s never gotten over her, but now may finally be time to move on. Gah! I’m dying to read it. I hope that we get to keep some of that sizzling sexual tension in that one, unlike with the pair in this one that lost some steam.

Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
