Oh what a tangled web the author weaved in the art of deceiving. The murder of a girl opens a Pandora's box of a litany of secrets, lies and other nefarious happenings in Scarlett Falls.
This new series is set in a location fans of Melinda Leigh's will be familiar with. It's a spin off of her Scarlet Falls trilogy series and features the sister of Stella Dane who was the heroine in the last book of that series.

I have read a few other books by this author and quite enjoyed them. This one wasn't bad. Seemed to drag a bit. Romance is not high on the agenda here and it could have been. But maybe in the next in the series.
Ok, it's an old picture, but you get my drift ...

As a suspenseful romance, Say You’re Sorry, was a rather captivating read, especially since Melinda Leigh is new author to me. Her characterization of the main leads was compelling. I liked Morgan Dane, widowed mother of three young girls, who were particularly cute, and came across as genuine. I also liked Lance Kruger, former police detective, turned PI, who takes care of his mentally fragile mother.

The first two chapters of this novel were utterly gripping. The author immediately caught my attention with that suspenseful and frightening opening sequence. Needless to say, I was quite excited to read the rest of the novel. Unfortunately, by chapter three, the novel transitioned to the kind of average mystery story that I have read many, many times.
The story is told through multiple perspectives. By far, the strongest perspective was from the unnamed murderer who was compelling and, ...more
