One tenacious local detective can only get the help he needs from a former forensic photographer with a serial killer on the loose in the new romantic thriller from New York Times bestselling author Laura Griffin.
When former forensic photographer Miranda Rhoads moves to the seaside town of Lost Beach, she's decided to make her living as a wildlife photographer and put crime scenes behind her. But her plans are quickly upended when one morning, she comes across a couple sleeping in a canoe, entwined in an embrace. Looking closer, she realizes the man and woman aren't asleep--they've been murdered.

Detective Joel Breda sets out to find answers--not only about the unidentified victims in the marshy death scene, but also about the aloof and beautiful photographer who seems to know more about his investigation than he does.

As they begin to unravel the motivation of a merciless serial killer, Miranda and Joel must race against the clock to make an arrest before the killer can find them first.

MY REVIEW:

RITA award winner Laura Griffin delivers another five-star read on this second installment of the Texas Murder Files. I read Hidden last fall and really enjoyed the fast-paced romantic suspense and that edge of your seat type thriller. Griffin I believe writes the best mix of suspense and romance. She has quickly become a favorite of mine since reading Hidden. Her books are very readable, has that surprising twists I just love in a murder mystery and of course that touch of romance set in her hometown, Texas.

In this second book, we follow forensic photographer turned wildlife photographer Miranda Rhoades who discovers a pair of bodies entwined in an embrace. Moving to the seaside town of Lost Beach, Miranda thought she could start a new life and put the crime scenes behind. Little did she know that her expertise would be put to great use especially working with Detective Joel Breda. The whole process of how the culprits unravel is the true joy of reading this novel. The police procedural was on point and really takes us through the whole investigation of this crime thriller.

I really enjoyed this book and the series so far. The writing is so immersive, and Laura Griffin just knows how to set the stage for her stories and truly immersing the readers into the beautiful Texan backdrop of her stories. The characters are also quite compelling to read with amazing back stories that make this book a riveting read.
