My Review:

Storyline:  Avery comes home to settle her dad's estate and to find out why he committed suicide.  Once she gets there she runs into her former beau Matt Stevens the country sheriff and discovers his twin Hunter has returned too.  The Stevens family hopes she gets back with Matt but Hunter is the one who intrigues her.  He gave up a law career in New Orleans to return to the town and family that deserted him.  The two of them join forces to investigate her father's past and find out a rape and murder that happened a long time ago that resulted in the wrong people being convicted.  The town isn't so perfect and they also find out about a Group calling themselves the Secret Seven who punishes any they believe who dare defy with their interests with death.

Characters:  All of the characters were well written and I really liked Hunter because he knew something was wrong with his family and he left them.

Romance:  I really enjoyed the romance between Hunter and Avery because he has always wanted her. 

Also I believe that she wanted him too but was scared that he took her out of her element.  She thought Matt was safer!  I'm really glad they got together and you can feel the heat between them especially when they were fighting their attraction to each other.

Killer:  The killer was really deranged in his beliefs but could act normal in society!
