Fifteen years ago, Shelby Pearce confessed to murdering her brother-in-law and was sent to prison. Now she’s out on parole and looking for a fresh start in the small town of Valleysburg, Texas. But starting over won’t be easy for an ex-con.

FBI Special Agent Denton McClure was a rookie fresh out of Quantico when he was first assigned the Pearce case. He’s always believed Shelby embezzled five hundred thousand dollars from her brother-in-law’s account. So he’s going undercover to befriend Shelby, track down the missing money, and finally crack this case.

But as Denton gets closer to Shelby, he begins to have a trace of doubt about her guilt. Someone has Shelby in their crosshairs. It’s up to Denton to stop them before they silence Shelby—and the truth—forever.

This novel centered around Shelby Pearce. She was recently released from prison after serving time after confessing to the crime of murder. Now being free, she wants to start her life anew. We also have Agent Denton McClure who believes Shelby may or may not have committed just a bit more than murder.

This story held quite a few twists, which I love when a story keeps me on my toes. I found Shelby to be quite intuitive and extremely forgiving. I don't know how I would be able to handle being estranged from my family, even if the reason occurred due to my own actions. Maybe I'm a bit sensitive because Shelby was such a likable character. I wanted her life to be smooth sailing upon her release, but predators and roadblocks tried to get in the way of her finding the answers she sought. She does however find her own circle of friends who trust and believe in her. I also liked that the romance between Shelby and Denton was able to grow organically. 

"Old friends are like gold nuggets-they increase their value with time." 

While this mystery was also a thriller, it had a few other elements like romance, abuse, religion, violence, and abuse. This will probably show that I have an affinity towards True Crime TV and all things Dexter. But, I LOVED the scene with Jess, Marissa, Shelby, and the finger. You'll have to read it. It was smartly done and a bit cheeky. 

Just when I caught my breath after one twist, Mills hit me with another.  DiAnn Mills is quickly becoming one of my favorite Texas Authors. She has a way of pulling you into the character's psyche until you become one with them. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery.
