Holy cow! This book was a trip! This is the third book in the Angie Pallorino series and I hope it’s not the last. As always with this author, the suspense is insane and the mystery kept me on the edge of my seat. This may have also been the first book that I really disliked the victim. But did she deserve what happened to her? I wasn’t quite sure what to think as the story was slowly unfolded. My emotions were all over the place. From the first scene we learn what happens to the victim but not who the killer is. Or did we?

I loved that Angie is more level headed in this book. She has had time to come to terms with what happened to her as a child and is trying to move on with her life. I life she wants with James Maddocks. His love for her is such a strong love. I loved him for loving her, letting her know he loves her, but still letting her go so to speak so she could figure it all out in her head after being dealt such a blow regarding her job.

The last part of this book gave me such anxiety. I thought I had it all figured out. I was wrong. This can’t be the end of the series, it just can’t! I am obsessed with these characters. Oh and as a bonus, if you have Kindle Unlimited, you can read AND listen free!

A shallow grave exposes deadly secrets as bestselling author Loreth Anne White brings her thrilling series of romantic suspense to its shocking conclusion…

Disgraced ex-cop Angie Pallorino is determined to make a new start for herself as a private investigator. But first, she and her lover, newly promoted homicide detective James Maddocks, attempt a quiet getaway to rekindle a romance struggling in the shadows of their careers. The peace doesn’t last long when human skeletal remains are found in a nearby mossy grove.

This decades-old mystery is just what Angie needs to establish her new career—even as it thrusts her and Maddocks back into the media spotlight, once again endangering their tenuous relationship.

Then, when Angie’s inquiry into the old crime intersects with a cold case from her own policing past—one that a detective on Maddocks’s new team is working—the investigation takes a startling twist. It puts more than Angie’s last shot at redemption and a future with Maddocks at risk. The mystery of the girl in the moss could kill her.

Holy twisted goodness! What did I just read!

OMG! I don’t know how to form the words I need to describe how very much I loved this book. I HIGHLY suggest you read/listen to it.

Jeezus! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. What a mystery! Just when I thought I had it all figured out, there were more turns. And don’t even get me started on the HOT AF sex! That was twisted in itself and I loved it!

It is also on Audible and the narration is phenomenal and had me completely enthralled! I’m off to binge on more of Celia Aaron’s books.

I dig. It’s what I do. I’ll literally use a shovel to answer a question. Some answers, though, have been buried too deep for too long. But I’ll find those, too. And I know where to dig—the Blackwood Estate on the edge of the Mississippi Delta. Garrett Blackwood is the only thing standing between me and the truth. A broken man—one with desires that dance in the darkest part of my soul—he’s either my savior or my enemy. I’ll dig until I find all his secrets. Then I’ll run so he never finds mine. The only problem? He likes it when I run.

Author’s Note: This is a standalone mystery/suspense romance with violence and explicit/intense sex. If you need a trigger warning, then this isn’t the book for you.
