Shattered Sunset Promises -- Nancy Kay

Shattered Sunset Promises

Malory's inheritance is disastrous.....
John's murder case is stalled...........
Then a link between her bequest and his homicide entangles and threatens their lives...and their love.

Malory Williams faces an uncertain future. Ten years ago she lost the love of her life, and now she's lost her job. Fate presents an appealing blank slate when she inherits Bay Bluff Cottage, and Mal doesn't hesitate. She sells her current home and pools her assets. Life is looking up...until she discovers she's inherited an albatross.

Two grisly homicides pose a challenge for seasoned investigator John Ryley. A single, precise slash ended both lives and the women's savaged bodies were dumped at the exact same location. The brutal murders occurred ten years apart, though, and John's skeptical...until clues point to a connection between both murders and Malory's inheritance.

Neither John nor Mal are looking for involvement at this point in their lives, yet he finds the stunning widow's perseverance sexy, and she discovers irresistible charm beneath the investigators tough demeanor. But when a well-kept secret is uncovered, the homicide explodes and John races against the clock to keep Malory from becoming the killer's next victim.

Avid reader gives Five stars for enterprising author, Nancy Kay.

John and Mallory meet by chance and begin a cautious courtship even as they deal with the sly tactics of a serial killer. Second chance for them both, they hesitate on the verge of commitment, while a puzzling danger threatens the new owner of Bay Bluff Cottage.  

I enjoyed the vivid descriptions of the picturesque scenes on the shores of Lake Erie. The second chance romance progresses cautiously in a measured rhythm depicting a more mature coupling than either had experienced with a first love. The slower pace seemed realistic of an older couple.  Both primary and secondary characters contributed to a rich story line as a detective investigates both old and new mysterious murders among the native flora on Presque Isle State Park. A woman faces a second chance in life with courage. The absorbing story line kept me interested from the very beginning.
