“Say You’re Sorry captivated me from page one”
~ Under the Covers
I am still relatively new to the thriller genre, I like to dip my toe in every now and then, however, in this book Melinda Leigh has tempted me to belly flop right in. Say You’re Sorry captivated me from page one as you witness the murder first hand, after that, it wasn’t a want, it was a need; I needed to keep reading and find out the full story.
Morgan Dane is our main character, she’s been widowed for two years and has 3 adorable small children, who she parents with the help of her father. Now, she has decided it’s time for her to go back to work as a prosecutor. But, just as she’s about to start her baby sitter is horrifically murdered and her neighbour is accused of the slaying. Morgan doesn’t buy it. So with the help of her private investigator and former high school boyfriend, she decides to take up his defence.
This book is so easy to get into, Morgan is such an identifiable figure, a single mother trying to do the best for her children and now juggling a stressful job. A stressful job where she isn’t sure she’s doing the right thing. And then there’s Lance the PI assisting her with the case and a guy with some pressures of his own. The murder case itself, although interesting to follow, as soon as the murderer popped up I figured it out correctly but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the ride to get there.
It was Morgan and her relationship with people, her blossoming romance with Lance, her devotion to her family, her dedication to helping Nick – the young man accused of murder – that kept me glued to the book. I can’t wait to read more in this series and I will definitely be looking up some more Melinda Leigh.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
