Her Darkest Secret HER DARKEST SECRET by Jessica R. Patch
GENRE: Christian Psychological Thriller with Romance
PUBLISHER: Harlequin Love Inspired TRADE
RELEASE DATE: June 28, 2022
PAGES: 349

When a cold-case serial killer returns, FBI special agent Fiona Kelly has one last chance to stop him before he claims the prize he’s always wanted—her.

The sight of a goose feather at a murder scene modeled after a children’s poem is enough to make FBI special agent Fiona Kelly’s blood turn to ice. Almost two decades ago, a feather was left with her sister’s body—and with every subsequent victim of the Nursery Rhyme Killer. Now he’s back. Only this time, his latest gruesome murder is a message to the only one who ever got away: Fiona.

Finding “Rhyme” is an obsession that’s fueled Fiona’s career—and destroyed her marriage to fellow FBI agent Asa Kodiak. Now Fiona and Asa have to put their past tensions aside and work together one last time. But Rhyme is watching, and catching this killer may force Fiona to reveal her biggest, darkest secret…the one only he knows.

Ty reentered. “It’s done. Death investigator is on her way. Apparently she’s been busy this morning. You want me to come with to interview the husband? You know it’s always the husband.”

“How could it be this time? The feather in her hand.”

Ty shrugged. “I just think you spend that much time with someone…you wanna kill ’em.”

Asa snorted.

“Asa, you don’t have to enlist Fiona’s help, but you owe her a courtesy call.”

Ty was right. But it would ignite a different set of fireworks. The kind that didn’t light up the night sky, but set emotional fires and burned everything to ash. “It’ll put her on a plane out here. Give me some time. It won’t hurt anything.” Asa could move past the Fourth of July, then call and inform her that he was handling things and would keep her updated.

Unfortunately, that wouldn’t be enough for Fiona.

Asa was going to have to pin Scripture verses all over his town house, car and office to keep his temper in check and his heart guarded.
