Her admirer, Detective Terry Bateson, hopes not, but what if he, too, has a secret he’d prefer to keep hidden? And if Sarah’s client is innocent of murder, why has he told such obvious lies?

After her music career crashes and burns spectacularly, Juliet Langley is forced to turn to the only other business she knows: food service. Unfortunately, bad luck strikes yet again when her two-timing fiancé robs her blind and runs off with her best waitress. Flushing what’s left of her beloved café down the toilet with her failed engagement, Juliet packs up and moves back to her college stomping grounds in Nashville to manage an old friend’s coffeehouse. At first glance, it seems as though nothing’s changed at Java Jive. What could possibly go wrong? Only that the place is hemorrhaging money, the staff is in open revolt, and Juliet finds one unlucky employee dead in the dumpster out back before her first day is even over. The corpse just so happens to belong to the cook who’d locked horns with Juliet over the finer points of the health code. Unimpressed with her management style, the other disgruntled employees are only too eager to spill the beans about her fiery temper to the detective on the case. Add to the mix a hunky stranger who’s asking way too many questions, and suddenly Juliet finds herself in some very hot water. If she can’t simmer down and sleuth her way to the real killer, she’s going to get burned.

The Shadow Man

Top Customer Reviews 5.0 out of 5 starsI really enjoyed this book By Ben I really enjoyed this book even though I had not read the previous book The Paladin Project: A Legend is Born (The Paladin Project Chronicles Book 1) I soon caught up with the characters and who was who, but I do advise readers to read the previous books to gain even more enjoyment from this edition. The characters are very well written and all move through an interesting plot concerning the sinister antics of the mysterious Shadow man. Though I thought a couple of events were over too quickly and with a bit of a rewrite, extra tension and excitement could be added to the story, that is my humble opinion, but it did not distract from the story. I liked that it was set in Scotland, a country I have visited and driven through many times. The author has captured the settings and atmosphere of the locations the book is set in, adding to my reading pleasure. I can highly recommend this book so give it a try as it's a little gem waiting to be discovered.
