Book three in the Petal, GA series – COUNT ON ME is now available across digital formats!
Petal is the last place Caroline Mendoza thought she’d end up. Sixteen years ago she lost both parents there—her mother to murder and her father to prison for the crime. Since then she’s built a successful life, but she’s never let go of the belief her father is innocent.
Now she’s back in Petal to find the truth. With a new job and a mystery to solve, she’s got plenty on her plate. But when she bumps into Royal Watson, the sparks fly hard and fast.
When the whipsmart, opinionated lawyer blows into town like a beautiful storm, Royal has a reason to make the time to get off his organic farm and pursue her. And soon their intense attraction is tipping into something more.
As Caroline’s dogged investigation digs up ghosts of the past, there’s not much time for basking in love’s glow. The closer she gets to the truth, the more threatened the real killer gets…and the greater the danger that all her digging could lead to her own grave.
Warning: Laid-back ranchers who are really sneak alpha males, tight butts in wranglers, and creative use of belts and buckles. Bad words, hot sex, and lots of pie—sometimes all at once.
It took me nearly a week after reading this book to move on to something else. It was amazing and wonderful and emotional and I can’t even tell you how much I loved it. Wicked Lil Pixie
I enjoyed the relationship building, mystery, suspense, twists and turns, humor, and some lovely sexy times. I also really liked seeing the extended Chase family in action as they stayed true to their previously established characters. I can’t wait to see what Dane brings to Petal next. The BookPushers
Combine all of these elements and Polly Chase, who is probably one of the absolute best secondary characters ever written and you have an awesome book. The Book Reading Gals
