After reading Callie by the Bay, I have now become a Tracy Fabre fan. Callie had befriended her neighbor, Danny, and his kid Emmy, knowing Danny had been accused of murdering his wife. The real killers were found and jailed. But, a scar was left on Danny and Emmy. Callie helped both of them throughout the murder investigation, gaining a strong tie to Danny and Emmy. But, the investigator that helped them, attracted Callie. Callie’s decision was to marry Danny and be a step mother to Emmy, which I believe she never regretted, but there was than chemical attraction to the investigator.
This story is about a neighbor that actually did kill his wife and son. She brings the reader into the story and I found myself rooting for Callie, both because she is brave, stupid and gets into situations. She helps control Danny’s moods, helps Emmy over her trauma and enjoys this responsibility. But, she does get herself into trouble. This time, she found herself confronted by the killer.
This book is a combination of intrigue, suspense and romance. Tracy has a wonderful way of including romance, but never lets details interrupt the story. Frankly, I had to read this book in one setting. It’s very rare for me, but I actually dreamed about some of her characters the night that I read her book. This book gets a high recommendation from me.
I bought this ebook on Amazon for $3.99 which was well worth the price.
