GENRE: Romantic Suspense
Dr. Alexandra Hadley would prefer to leave small town life behind forever, but her father’s death forces her hand. In his will, he has left her his medical practice and Georgian-style mansion, and it is up to her to hire a new doctor and settle his estate. Fresh out of medical school, Lexi is happily settled in Chicago, doing research in tandem with her boyfriend. Brian, fifteen years older with impressive credentials and sophisticated tastes, has no interest in visiting her birthplace of Glenmore, Illinois. Lexi soon discovers that home has its attractions, the first being the handsome contractor Joe Manning, her secret crush in high school. Seeing patients is also surprisingly satisfying. When Joe offers to remodel her father’s den, Lexi jumps at the chance to erase sad memories and become better acquainted with her gorgeous handyman. Even as the charms of Glenmore draw her in, a series of break-ins at her father’s house make her fear for her safety. Is the intruder searching for something other than valuables? And how determined is the culprit? Lexi finds her fragile happiness at risk, including her newfound love for Joe Manning.
He looked over volume after volume. “Some of these look like they might be first editions.”
“Most likely. Dad was quite a collector. Do you read?”
“Yeah, some.” He tapped on the cherry wood shelves and then he focused on the desk. Rounding it, he took a seat. “This is the drawer that was broken into?” He reached down to pull open the cracked drawer. “Doesn’t look like there was too much damage. It could be repaired.”
“It doesn’t matter. I’m going to throw it out anyway.”
His head snapped up. “What? Why?”
“Because I hate it.” She shivered, hugging herself. “I hate this whole room.”
He frowned. “But this is a great desk. The drawer could be repaired or replaced. Be a shame to throw it out.”
When she spoke, her voice was quiet. “If you want it, it’s yours.” She swiveled on the ball of her foot and walked away.
He gazed at the empty doorway for a long while, confused. What the hell? Then it hit him. Duh. I’m an idiot.
She was in the kitchen, cleaning up. It didn’t take her long— two plates in the dishwasher and paper cartons in the garbage. She sprayed the counter and wiped it clean with paper towels.
“Lexi, is the study where your brother died?” He shifted, uncomfortable, barely able to say the words.
When she turned to face him, her eyes were bright. “Yes.”
