One Deadly Sin by Annie Solomon features Eden Swanford who goes back home to Redbud, TN, to right a wrong done to her father many years ago. Publisher: Forever (Grand Central Publishing), May 2009
Revenge. Edie Swann has hungered for it since she fled her hometown as a little girl. Now she’s returned, ready for payback. Armed with a list of names, she leaves each one a chilling sign that they have blood on their hands. Her father’s blood. What happens next turns her own blood cold: one by one, the men she’s targeted start dying.
Sheriff Holt Drennen knows Edie is hiding something. She has a haunted look in her eyes and a defiant spirit, yet he can’t believe she’s a murderer. As the body count rises and all evidence points to Edie, Holt is torn between the town he’s sworn to protect and the woman he’s come to desire. But nothing is what it seems. Long buried secrets begin to surface, and a killer won’t be satisfied until the sins of the past are paid in full–this time with Edie’s blood.
This was a great read. From the first sentence, I could not put this book down. The mystery and the romance played well together and the conclusion had me shedding a tear. My rating: 4 stars
