Synopsis: There's something rotten in Shakespeare...
Lily Bard was running from shattering memories when she moved to Shakespeare, Arkansas. Now cleaning houses pays her bills. Working out helps her heal. Still protecting her scars, she hides a hard body and impressive skill at martial arts under baggy sweats. And nobody knows how strong she is until racial violence has her looking behind closed doors for a killer--doors to which a housecleaner might have the key.
Review: The second book in one of my series was, in my opinion, far better than the first.
For a little town not big enough to boast it's own Wal-Mart, they sure do have a lot of murders, at least one per book. This time it's a guy at Lily's gym. Lily of course has to find the body and everyone's obviously a suspect.
This novel introduces us to Jack, the "new man" in Lily's life. We see their bugging relationship start to unfold over the course of this book. Finally Lily is moving on with her life despite being attacked years earlier.
Lily is much more relaxed in this book than in the previous one. As a character, she's developing, she's getting softer and more likable as a person.
This is definitely becoming a series in which I would recommend to anyone as it appeals to mystery buff or anyone who just likes to be entertained.
