THE BLURB

A waitress, a contractor, and an FBI agent walk into a café …

Single mom Darcy Emerson Sloan has enough to do raising twins and running a restaurant. She’s doing fine on her own and doesn’t need the complications of a man in her life. But when her café turns into a crime scene, putting her and her children are in danger, she begins to take interest in the handsome young FBI agent that comes on the scene.

Contractor Del Reno is as even-keeled as they come, but even he has his limits. And Darcy Sloan has pushed him too far. Every time he tries to help, it backfires. But now that Darcy and her kids are in trouble, he has no choice but to come to her aid and to protect her. She’s just going to have to deal with it.

Secret tunnels, organized crime, adorable children, and a wedding.

Just another day in Clementville.

MY REVIEW

I do love a good renovation. Taking something old and making it shiny and new.

No renovation (or art project) goes to plan. And the upgrade to Darcy’s apartment just fell right through the floor—especially with the discovery of [SPOILER.]

Struggling just to maintain, Darcy has her heart tucked neatly on a shelf in a back closet. If she could just keep Del out of her face. But as the contractor doing the renovation, that’s hard to do.

Ms. Merrick wraps the reader into the story—I could almost feel the damp of the tunnels as I read. I certainly felt the apprehension and unease when they discovered the new tunnels, and the anxiety when Darcy’s apartment [SPOILER.]

Man, it’s hard to know who to trust! Just when you think you have it figured out, Ms. Merrick tosses another bone of confusion your way.

I love the depth of Ms. Merrick’s characters. Darcy’s resistance, not to Del only, but to God. And Del’s protectiveness, his instinct and integrity. His patience and persistence.

This story held as many twists and turns as the tunnels. Dead ends and secret alcoves and hidden passages. Ms. Merrick keeps her reader turning pages to the surprising end.
