When a young woman is at the wrong place at the wrong time, she becomes a person of interest in a murder investigation.

Maddie Baker just wants to make ends meet. She gave up her school librarian career to return to her hometown and take care of her elderly aunt. So when she starts making Uber runs to supplement her barista job, she never dreamt she’d not only drop a man off to his murder but be labeled a person of interest in his death.

Detective Noah Langley is looking for a fresh start in a city with a lower crime rate and a fraction of the population of Memphis. It’s just what he needs to recover from a nightmare that left him severely injured and his teenage mentee dead. The first murder since he’s arrived in Cockamamie is a chance to prove to his boss and himself he should be there.

Noah doesn’t have many leads, but the few he has all tie back to one person: Maddie Baker. She doesn’t seem the type, but the last time he presumed someone was innocent he nearly died. Has Noah lost his instincts? Because if he can’t trust his gut, it might be time to turn in his badge.

    This is a book I honestly found not put down. I randomly stumbled upon the book before a flight, but I finished it in 3 days because there are so many twists and turns, you have to keep flipping the page!

    ALC Review 5/5 Story 5/5 Narration I'm a romance reader and I don't usually reach for these books or audiobooks for that matter but the blurb really hooked me and then I saw the narrator team and I was in! There's so much I loved about this the creativity of it being one of the biggest things! The mystery was so fun to follow. I absolutely loved the narrators! Shannon McManus is fantastic! Chris Brinkley is yet again amazing! I can't wait for the next installment! Thank you Valentine PR for the chance to review this ALC!

    I absolutely loved the characters in this book! Maddie was so awesome I just felt like she was so realistic in her reactions. I’m usually not a series reader but i can’t wait for book 2 to come out.
