Winslow Covington believes in life, liberty and the letter of the law. As Quincy, Montana’s new chief of police, she’s determined to prove herself to the community and show them she didn’t earn her position because her grandfather is the mayor.
According to her pops, all she has to do is earn favor with the Edens. But winning over the town’s founding family might have been easier if not for her one-night stand with their oldest son. In her defense, it was her first night in town and she didn’t realize that the rugged and charming man who wooed her into bed was Quincy royalty.
Sleeping with Griffin Eden was a huge mistake, one she’s trying to forget. He’s insufferable, arrogant and keeps reminding everyone that she’s an outsider. Winslow does her best to avoid Griffin, but when a woman is found dead on Eden property, the two of them have no choice but to cross paths.
As clues to the murderer lead to one of Quincy’s own, Griffin realizes Winslow is more than he gave her credit for. Beautiful and intelligent, she proves hard to resist. For him. And the killer.
I received an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
My Rating: 5 Stars
Damn, I love the way that Devney Perry writes love stories. She somehow manages to make each and every one of her characters relatable and instantly likable. The moment I pick up any of her books I find myself instantly invested, and can’t put the book down for anything. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever read a Devney Perry book that took me longer than 12 hours to devour. I started Indigo Ridge at 2am last night, made it to 60% before zonking out, and then woke up this morning and immediately finished it. I just can’t resist her stories, they suck me every single time.
I loved Griff and Winnie’s story, and really enjoyed seeing their relationship develop from a one night stand into something really meaningful. I think one of the things that really sucks me into Devney’s books is the way that she writes couples in their every day life. Griff and Winnie both had very different, busy lives and seeing them work to make time for each other in their respective lives was really something that I enjoyed.
The murder mystery aspect of this book really kept me on my toes. I thought I knew who the bad guy was, but when the big reveal came I was genuinely surprised to find that I was close but wrong. I honestly never guessed the motivations, and throughout the book I found myself second guessing all of my theories.
I also have to admit that I’m already fully in love with the entire Eden family. I come from a pretty small family so I love the big family dynamic that they have and I can’t wait to get to know all of these characters over the course of their own books. I have a soft spot for chefs so I already KNOW I’m going to love Knox.
