Baton Rouge field office director Jason Miller surprisingly sends three FBI Agents (Gabriel Blankenship, Jackson Revannaugh and Andrew Barkin) to Bachelor Moon, Louisiana to check on ex-Kansas City-based profiler Sam Connelly after a call from a concerned Marlena Meyers. Two years ago, Sam met and fell in love with Daniella Butler, owner of the Bachelor Moon Bed and Breakfast (see Scene of the Crime: Bachelor Moon); they married and he became a stepfather to her daughter Macy. Marlena, the B&B manager, tells the Feds that the Connolly trio vanished.

As the agents gather information from B&B employees, from their opening salutations, Gabriel and Marlena are attracted to each other. Both have suffered in their past relationships; whereas he distrusts desire while she embraces love as she wants what her boss has. When he realizes someone wants her dead, Gabriel vows to keep the woman he loves safe.

The latest Scene of the Crime romantic police procedural (see … Deadman’s Bluff) is a gripping suspense as readers will want to know what happened to the Connolly family and who wants the heroine dead and why. The taut storyline hooks the audience throughout in this super Bayou thriller.
