Description

In a new series from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh, former prosecutor Morgan Dane faces the most personal-and deadly-case of her lifetime.

After the devastating loss of her husband in Iraq, Morgan Dane returns to Scarlet Falls, seeking the comfort of her hometown. Now, surrounded by family, she's finally found peace and a promising career opportunity-until her babysitter is killed and her neighbor asks her to defend his son, Nick, who stands accused of the murder.

Tessa was the ultimate girl next door, and the community is outraged by her death. But Morgan has known Nick for years and can't believe he's guilty, despite the damning evidence stacked against him. She asks her friend Lance Kruger, an ex-cop turned private eye, for help. Taking on the town, the police, and a zealous DA, Morgan and Lance plunge into the investigation, determined to find the real killer. But as they uncover secrets that rock the community, they become targets for the madman hiding in plain sight.

    Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. This is a new series starting Morgan Dane. Normally I know who did it, at the beginning, so this had me questioning it. Morgan returns to her hometown after losing her husband, only to arrive when her younger sister is murdered and her neighbor is charged. His family hires her, and town was not happy. How could she represent him? She did not believe he did it. There was so many things that would surprise you. She joins Sharpe investigations, and then the interesting stuff, really comes out... I do not give spoilers, so just read it.

    This whole story begins with a bang as we start out in the viewpoint of a young woman who is running through the woods trying to escape her attacker. She fails.Tessa's body is found by Morgan Dane and Lance Kruger who begin searching when Tessa's grandmother calls her. Tessa is a widow with three young girls under the age of seven who is just getting ready to go back to work in the Prosecutor's office. She gets side tracked when her neighbor Nick Zabrowski gets arrested for the crime. Morgan can't believe that a young man who plays chess with her grandfather, reads stories to her girls, and is just starting his own landscaping business could be guilty of the crime.She decides that she is going to take his case as his defense attorney and find out who really killed Tessa despite Nick being convicted by the court of public opinion and a mayor and police chief who want to railroad him so that they can benefit from the good publicity resulting from putting a killer behind bars.Morgan recruits Lance to help her investigate. They had a thing when they were teens but life got in the way and they have just been friends since Morgan got back to town. Lance is a former police officer who was shot and is still rehabbing. Meanwhile, he is working with Lincoln Sharp who is a retired police officer who has started a private investigation business. Sharp has also been a mentor and father figure to Lance since his own father disappeared when he was ten and his mother spiraled into mental illness. Lance still has major responsibilities to his mother who needs his care.The mystery was intriguing. The multiple viewpoints, including that of the killer, make the story tense. Lance and Morgan have a number of suspects who all seem to be possible killers. Even so, the identity of the killer came as a surprise to me.This is a great romantic suspense title with plenty of suspense and a nice romance too.

    It took me a little bit to get into the book, but once I did I really enjoyed it. Morgan Dane has appeared in previous books revolving around Scarlet Falls. She's widowed with three young children and lives with her grandfather. The book starts off with the murder of a young girl, and the police immediately charge Morgan Dane's next door neighbor. Morgan decides to represent Nick and forgo her career as an assistant district attorney. At the same time Lance, a private investigator is looking for a missing girl. Lance and Morgan have know each other since high school and naturally sparks start to fly. Morgan hires Lance to help prove Nick's innocence. I was able to figure out who the killer was before the hospital scene occurred. I definitely recommend the book, especially if you have read any of the Scarlet Falls books. I really enjoy the authors writing style and can't wait to read more books about Morgan Dane.Thanks to NetGalley, Montlake Romance and the author, Melinda Leigh, for a free electronic ARC of this novel.

    "Say You're Sorry" by Melinda Leigh was a pleasant surprise to me. Morgan Dane returns to her hometown with her children after her husband dies in Iraq. Unsure of where or how to start her new life, Morgan accepts a job in the District Attorney's office only to change course and take on a neighbor's request to represent his son who has been accused of a horrific murder. I loved the fast pace of this novel and the character development that I am sure will grow as the series continues. This is a promising new series that I really am looking forward to continuing to read.I received a copy from Montlake Romance via Netgalley for free in exchange for an honest review.

    This is the first Melinda Leigh book I've read (well, listened to) but it won't be the last. I liked the mystery and really enjoyed the characters. An unusual aspect was Nick's story while he was in prison and trying to avoid trouble with other inmates.

    Good story. Good mystery. I might read the other books in the series.
  • (5/5)
    This was my first Melinda Leigh book, and to be honest, I would not have bought it if it had not been on the monthly kindle deal this December. It is oddly enough categorized as a Romance when it is definitely more a Mystery / Thriller.
    What I liked best about the book is the characters. Each has a substantial amount of back story, strengths and weaknesses. The chemistry between Morgan and Lance is important to the story but it didn't overpower the main storyline, which was solving the murder. There were many red herrings and the real culprit was barely mentioned, which was actually refreshing in this genre. Another fact that caught my attention is that when Morgan wants to spend the night with him, Lance says no, which is almost unheard of in this day and age where steamy sex is everywhere. Morgan's life and relationship with her three daughters and her parenting troubles were also so very real that I sometimes stopped and said, "Yeah, that sounds about right!"
    Overall a really good read.
    I must confess I also bought the next few books in the series, so .... on with the show!

    Say You’re Sorry was a fantastic start to the Morgan Dane series. I have not read the Scarlet Falls series that was published before this, so some of the connections were not clear at the beginning of the book, but it did not diminish the enjoyment I had while listening to this book. The narration was well done with a lot of expression that added to my enjoyment of the story.

    After losing her husband in Iraq, Morgan Dane has returned to her hometown of Scarlet Falls to raise her three girls with the help of her family. This story picks up two years after Morgan returned home. She has been offered a job working at the DA's office when her life is thrown into chaos. Her young neighbour has been accused of murdering her old babysitter. The family can not afford a top notch lawyer, and on impulse, Morgan offers to take his case pro bono. She is sure that he is innocent. Recruiting an old boyfriend and ex-cop, who is now working as a PI, they begin their investigation to prove Nick innocent. The only way to do that is to find the real killer.

    Morgan is an incredibly strong and brave character, in fact some may think she is rash and impulsive. She also has a great sense of loyalty for those she cares about which is how she ends up involved in this case at all. I love that, as busy as she is, she still makes sure she spends quality time with her daughters. Lance is dealing with his own issues. He was shot while still working on the police force and even though he enjoys the leeway he has working as a PI, he misses his prior job. I really enjoyed the working relationship Morgan and Lance have. They feed off each other well and Lance is very protective of Morgan. I will be watching to see if they develop a romantic relationship as this series moves forward.

    The mystery surrounding Tessa's death and the disappearance of another girl was intriguing. There were several suspects over the course of the book which led to constant twists and turns. Each of these suspects often revealed another secret in Scarlet Falls. I suspected several people, but never actually the person figured out the killer until just prior to the reveal. Some other readers thought the book was slow, but I felt the pace was just right. I listened to it in one day and didn't want to take any breaks, as I was pulled right into the story. This book is listed as a Romantic Suspense, but I think it was more Suspense Mystery, as I mentioned earlier, perhaps the romance is yet to come. I recommend this story to Mystery, Thriller, Suspense, or Romantic Suspense lovers. If you have kindle unlimited, the audio version of this book is available for members right now as I write this review.
