In Austria to meet her great-grandfather and explore his castle estate filled with priceless art, August Myer arrives to find he’s died suspiciously. As one of the heirs, her life is in danger, turning this fairytale Alpine adventure into a nightmare of unexplained accidents, neo-Nazi threats, and murder.
Inspector Tobias Wolf splits his time between his profession and fighting the spread of neo-Nazism. But when the beautiful, intriguing American crosses his path during a murder investigation, ensuring her safety challenges his priorities…and his heart.
When August learns the handsome inspector’s involvement with a major female Nazi is more than he’s admitted, and the death of her great-grandfather is somehow connected, she takes the investigation into her own hands. The outcome could be the death of both of them.

Congrats on creating a character even my momma would proclaim needed a good ass whopping. Oh and Wolf, he sure knows how to rescue a woman…in style—as in silver Porsche. What a ride, Wolf. Oh, and you ain’t so bad yourself either.

This book reminded me of a cozy mystery with a nice romance. Good reading, enjoyed watching the romance bloom. Also nice to see the characters go slower, getting to know each other a bit before jumping into bed. The pace of the story is steady and the characters kept my interest. Really didn't like the Baddies. Easy read, with a clear cut mystery that I recommend taking the time to read. 4 Stars
This book should come with the following warning message: Do Not Start This Novel Unless Your Schedule is Free because it will be impossible to put it down until it's finished. Highly recommend this one to both men and women! 5 Stars
Unreasonable irritation set his jaw tight, and he shot his partner a scowl. “She’s lying.”
“She’s convincing.” True to form, Albert spoke his mind. He’d miss him when he retired.
He let his ire go with the thought. “You don’t know her well enough.” They’d reached the landing and the door into the Great Hall.
“How well do you know Eike, Tobias?”
“I know her enough to know she’s not to be trusted. To know her aspirations—”
“I trust your gut.” His partner laid a hand on his shoulder. “It felt practiced…you’re right.” Albert opened the Great Hall door. “Let’s see if we can get the nephew to tell us something more.”
Tobias led the way, glanced along the table and into the shadows at each end, then made his way around and into the main room. He jerked to a halt. “Who the hell?” He trotted to a prone figure, face down in the middle of the hall.
Albert, huffing, drew up beside him as he squatted to get a closer look.
“It’s Bauer.” Tobias put fingertips to Bauer’s neck, but the pulse wasn’t there. His hand grazed a red silk scarf. The scarf, a faint scent, and confusion washed over him. August. She’d worn a red scarf the first time he’d seen her.
