New Release and Review for Say You’re Sorry by Melinda Leigh

In a new series from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh, former prosecutor Morgan Dane faces the most personal—and deadly—case of her lifetime.
After the devastating loss of her husband in Iraq, Morgan Dane returns to Scarlet Falls, seeking the comfort of her hometown. Now, surrounded by family, she’s finally found peace and a promising career opportunity—until her babysitter is killed and her neighbor asks her to defend his son, Nick, who stands accused of the murder.
Tessa was the ultimate girl next door, and the community is outraged by her death. But Morgan has known Nick for years and can’t believe he’s guilty, despite the damning evidence stacked against him. She asks her friend Lance Kruger, an ex-cop turned private eye, for help. Taking on the town, the police, and a zealous DA, Morgan and Lance plunge into the investigation, determined to find the real killer. But as they uncover secrets that rock the community, they become targets for the madman hiding in plain sight.

Say You’re Sorry by Melinda Leigh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh what a tangled web the author weaved in the art of deceiving. The murder of a girl opens a Pandora’s box of a litany of secrets, lies and other nefarious happenings in Scarlett Falls.

This new series is set in a location fans of Melinda Leigh’s will be familiar with. It’s a spin off of her Scarlet Falls trilogy series and features the sister of Stella Dane who was the heroine in the last book of that series.

Morgan Dane is a widow who was left with 3 young daughters to raise on her own after her husband died in Iraq. She’s recently moved back home to Scarlet Falls to live with her grandfather who helps with the girls. After two years of taking a break from her job as an assistant DA to grieve, she has decided to go back to work in the same field but before she starts her plans get derailed when she decides to be the lawyer for a 20 year old family friend who has just been accused of viciously murdering his girlfriend. She enlist the help of a childhood friend, Lance Kruger who is currently working as a Private Investigator for Lincoln Sharp.

Great start to the series with a strong female lead who uses her intelligence to solve problems, can psychically take care of herself but yet also isn’t afraid to show a vulnerable side. Lance is also a strong leading male character but without being to over the top alpha. He and Morgan work great together along with Sharp and I look forward to seeing them solve more cases together in future books.
