This romantic suspense novel is the debut book from new author Leslie Tentler.  Late night talk show hose Rain Summers is the daughter of a murdered singer from New Orleans who is credited with being goth before goth was a trend.   Special Agent Trevor Rivette is a native of New Orleans who left in his team and has spent the ensuing years trying to forget his childhood.  Now he is back and dealing with a case that involves Rain, but may also be personal.  As the case progresses, he finds that trying to protect Rain and identify his unsub may be more than he can handle on many levels.

Although I have read many romantic suspense novels throughout the years, it is not the genre that I read the most.  In fact, I think most of the books that I have read in this genre were probably written by Nora Roberts.  This one had an interesting plot line that kept me involved.  In addition, the characters of Rain and Trevor were quite interesting, and their personal stories were enticing.  I really enjoyed the mystery story line and although I figured out who the killer was before it was revealed, there were enough possible suspects to keep me guessing through a lot of the book.   Unfortunately, the  romance story line was a bit predictable, and the very end of the book fell a little flat for me.

All in all a good read from a new author, which I enjoyed enough to look forward to her next effort.
