Kelly’s review of She Can Tell by Melinda Leigh

She Can Tell

She Can…. #2
AUTHOR: Melinda Leigh
Characters: Mike O’Connell & Rachel Parker


When a terrible accident abruptly ends her riding career, Rachel Parker returns to Pennsylvania to rebuild her family’s horse farm. But her welcome home is anything but warm. Her sister’s abusive husband and a violent vandal threaten Rachel’s new business and her life. Someone is systematically trying to destroy her. Someone who knows private things about her. Someone who’s been watching her. Now Rachel must face the fact that the sins of her carefully hidden past have returned to haunt her…
Police Chief Mike O’Connell never had trouble drawing the line between his personal life and his job—until he met Rachel Parker. Mike’s investigation uncovers a shocking number of secrets and suspects. But the stalker’s escalating violence convinces him he doesn’t have much time to sort through it all. Whoever is watching Rachel wants her dead. Mike and Rachel race to untangle a web of deceit and lies that stretches two decades into the past—before her stalker strikes again.

She Can Tell takes us on a wild ride of who done it. Even when you think you know you don’t know.

Whenever I read a suspense book I try so hard to figure out who it the bad guy. In She Can Tell I thought I know who did it, then Melinda throughs something in that makes me questions and rethink myself. Then when I think I have it again she switches the focus on to someone else again. And still I think I know, but oh NO…. that can’t be right.

That being said I really loved She Can Tell. I loved the world Melinda created, the characters she developed and the suspense that she infuses in this story. I can’t wait to see what Melinda has in store for us next.

If you love a good romance suspense and have not tried Melinda Leigh yet, I would highly recommend you go pick up a copy of She Can Tell.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

 One bad decision turned a single mom into a fugitive.

Ten months ago, Elizabeth Baker uncovered a dangerous secret about her politician husband—a secret that nearly got her killed. Now she and her children are running for their lives. When Beth is hired as the caretaker of a remote Pennsylvania estate, she dares to hope she has found a corner of the world where Congressman Richard Baker can’t find them. But when her new boss dies suddenly and his nephew inherits the estate, Beth is faced with outwitting a former homicide detective who is very smart, very suspicious—and very attractive.

Forced into retirement by an injury and grieving the loss of his uncle, Jack O’Malley is unprepared to share his new home with a strange woman and her two kids. He is even less prepared for the instantaneous attraction he feels whenever Beth enters the room. She is beautiful, intelligent, kind…and obviously terrified of someone or something. As Jack’s investigation uncovers the shocking details of Beth’s past, the rural community is shaken by the murder of a local woman  Driven by instinct and desire, Jack is determined to keep Beth and her children safe, even if doing so means putting his heart—and his life —on the line.

    She Can Run sounds great! I love a good romantic suspense and this sounds like it has it all – I also like it when I can’t solve the mystery right away:) Thanks for the review
