Professional singer Julia Kershaw is leaving town and moving on with her life. She desperately needs an escape from her mother's grief over the loss of Julia's brother--shot and killed by an overzealous cop--and an ex-boyfriend who refuses to believe it's over. But when she becomes the sole witness to the murder of a man she's known all her life, how can she leave until the killer is found? And how can she work with a cop after everything the police put her family through' When Detective Inspector Daniel Conway is removed from the city chaos he thrives on, and sent to a sleepy seaside town, the last thing he expects is to catch a murder case. With an impeccable record he intends to keep that way, for personal as well as professional reasons, he refuses to allow his very beautiful, sexy--and secretive--witness to walk away from his case. Or him.
