From award-winning author Charlotte Hughes, a classic tale of romantic suspense finally available again.
In a small town, everybody knows everybody...
The local good-time girl has just been brutally murdered, shattering the tranquillity of Lee Cates′s sleepy Southern hometown. Everyone in Comfrey is relieved when an outsider who′d spent that fatal night with the victim is arrested--until it begins to look like maybe he′s not guilty.
Rashly probing into the murder, the blindly loyal Lee learns that not everybody loved the fast-living woman--though too many men had. Then one night Lee′s business is vandalized, and more mysterious events ensue. And Lee realizes--maybe too late--that in a community this small, one sister′s secrets may lead to the other′s death...

Charlotte Hughes lives on Fripp Island in South Carolina.From Publishers Weekly:
Before Lee Cates's sister, Lucy, was murdered, her once disturbingly beautiful face was slashed to ribbons. Three apparently implausible suspects emerge in the siblings' small, closely knit South Carolina town of Comfrey. Impatient with the progress of the investigation by her cousin, Sheriff Holden Cates, Lee strikes out on her own against his wishes. Though this is billed as a romantic suspense novel, the whodunit facet is given rather short shrift here. Characters are believable if not particularly compelling, but the heroine's vaunted feistiness is undermined each time she is rescued from harrowing situations (most of which she's placed herself in) by the handsome male stalwart, Jack McCall, who keeps appearing out of the blue and in the nick of time. Even so, Hughes's (And After That, the Dark) clear language is a pleasure to read.
