Linda Lael Miller ignites the combustible passion between attorney Clare Westbrook and homicide detective Tony Sonterra in this page-turning conclusion to her bestselling trilogy of "heart-stopping suspense" (Winter Haven News, FL). A senseless murder. A sizzling adventure.Clare Westbrook is a survivor who built her law practice from sheer determination -- and an unexpected inheritance. Now Clare, carrying her lover Tony Sonterra's child, has taken the biggest risk of all: saying "yes" to his marriage proposal and finally burying her lifelong commitment phobia. So why is fear running through her veins and haunting her dreams? Sonterra is fired up to leave Phoenix for small-town Arizona, to replace the town's missing police chief and target a lethal desert crime ring. Clare's willing to stand by her man, but her fiancé won't be the only one flirting with danger on the job: as a special investigator for the D.A.'s office, Clare is plunged into a race to find a missing child whose mother was murdered -- a hot case that puts Clare's safety, and that of her unborn child, on the edge. For in a place where secrets have nowhere to hide, the promise of Clare's bright future could vanish in the blink of an eye....

This is the first time I have read a novel by this author. It is listed as the third novel in a trilogy, but reads fine as a stand-alone novel. I am reviewing the novel based on its own merits (I review novels, not authors). Contrary to statements by other reviewers, I found little similarity between Clare Westbrook and Stephanie Plum (I have read all the Plum novels), and cannot fathom why anyone would think they are similar. OK, so they both have a man in their life, but there are no strange relatives, no second man competing for attention, etc.

Clare Westbrook in an attorney with independent financial means who does a lot of pro bono work. She understands the problems of the people, having come from a lower class background (spending time in foster homes, working as a waitress, etc.). She has moved to Dry Creek with her significant other when he took the job of Chief of Police. She is pregnant with his child. She is familiar with the town from when she was a teenager.

Clare becomes personally involved when she takes a job as an investigator with the sheriff's office. That allows her to carry a badge. The case involves abusive males, two legged coyotes (bringing illegal immigrants across the border from Mexico), and relationships of various kinds. There are a number of side plots intertwined with the main plot. I personally thought the story was well written, and it held my interest and kept me up late. The conclusion has some surprises. Contrary to what one reviewer claimed, I did not think it was predictable.

The novel has some explicit sexual content as well as some amount of violence. I would rate it as AO for Adult Only.
I read the first 2 books approximately 4 years ago and found this on Amazon last week. I truly enjoyed the first volumes and had fun reading the "insanity" that surrounds Claire and Sonterra. It was a fun read that I couldn't put down. I do suggest readers start with the first 2 books before getting into #3 in order to get an overview of the couple's disfunctional will certainly be more enjoyable knowing their full relationship in order to prevent throwing up your arms and saying "what the hell! these folks are nuts":). That's what makes this trilogy as enjoyable as it is. Happy reading.
I REALLY hate for the series to end. Love, love, love, Tony and Clare, and all of their friends. Great series - okay, I had a little trouble with book one, but it just kept getting better and better. Mystery, suspense, and romance. And the epilogue? Perfect!
Great ending for her trilogy.
again her people were a little hard to understand, but once you do it is a good book.
Loved it
Way more twisted than I'm used to seeing from LLM. I love the characters. I love the way they stay in character. It is kind of aggravating that she uses so many words that I don't know. My vocabulary is certainly increasing!
