Shes never noticed me. But now I insist that she start to. Ive gotten rid of one pretty peacock but now a new man has been on her arm, this one in uniform and staring too fondly at her. He is sure to be a complication and if I dont hurry, it might be too late to save her from herself and that mans lust. Charlotte, my love, please see me. See that Im always right in your shadow.Who would ever have thought that being normal could be so dangerous? Charlotte Lockwood, quiet professor of classical history, never thought so.The day starts out like any other morning for Charlotte: waking up to find her dog snoring at her side before dragging herself out for a run around her reticent trail. When she stumbles upon a body, her life is turned on its head and she is wrapped up in the biggest case the town has ever seen while she is left with an apathetic detective with a mile wide ice wall and a killer smile to keep her safe. Safe from whom, is the question of the day.A favor. Detective Sean Penski is in the podunk little town as a favor. He never expects anything more than a few run red lights, but when a body is discovered by the meek professor with the teasing eyes, he wonders if he might have bitten off more than he can chew.Sean’s ethical boundaries are pushed as business mixes with pleasure and a cryptic murderer gains ground, willing to go to any lengths to get Charlotte tagged.
