Former runaway Mari Del Lobo works hard to save her struggling restaurant and to trust people again. Dallas surgeon Dr. Luke Goodman turns her world upside down with terrifying news. A recent murder has her late brother's - aka the Smiling Killer - signature and MO. When attacks on her escalate, Mari fights her growing attraction to the good doctor as fiercely as she fights for her life. To rescue herself and those she loves, will she be able to stop the murderer before he strikes again?

Luke couldn't save his fiancée from the Smiling Killer, but he'll do anything to prevent more murders, even ask help from the serial killer's sister. Finding a kindred tortured soul and the perpetrator's next target in Mari, Luke is determined to protect the stubborn ex-rebel. But Mari would rather face danger than risk the safety of the man she comes to love.

The sweetest of all romances for me are the beautifully written Christian Romances. But this one come with a twist. Suspense, murder and betrayal. 

From the very first page I found myself completely wrapped up in the intensity of family betrayal. It only increased throughout the book as I racked my brain to try and solve the mystery behind the threats and murders. To then be completely blown away by the actual murderer. I can usually figure out a mystery but author Alexa Verde did an excellent job at keeping me guessing the whole time. 

I really enjoyed the murder mystery in the story but then there is the romance. This was a sweet, slow building romance that grows between to people with a common goal and the need to feel loved, healed and forgiven. Luke and Mari couldn't be more opposite but also completely the same. Luke is a man that does more than just heal people. He heals those who may not even know they are in need of healing. He has a heart of gold and a beautiful soul. I personally think he does his best work with simple words.... Prayer.

So much of this book touched my heart. It makes you stop and think about things in life and wonder what you would do. Could you forgive someone who betrayed you?? Could you forgive yourself?? Am I worthy of forgiveness?? It truly is a heart touching book that not only teaches you about love, and forgiveness but also the love and forgiveness that God has for you. 

I can say with my whole heart that I felt truly uplifted by Mari’s and Luke’s story and give this book 5 heavenly stars.
