I spent behind bars for a crime I didn’t commit—the murder of the woman I
loved. Now I’m free, but life on the outside is a different kind of prison. I
don’t know who I am or who I want to be. At least I have my sister, Cora. She
never stopped believing in me. She even got me a job at the private
investigation agency that cleared my name. And then Vera Swain walks into Nash
Security and Investigations and kicks my world on its ass.
Vera: There’s only one thing that would make me come out of hiding after two
years on the run: finding my sister. I made the mistake of telling a monster
about her, the same monster who beat me and broke me. Now I’m forced to confide
in Beau Hollis of Nash Security and Investigations. He looks at me like he
knows me—the real me. He sees too much, makes me feel too much. The pleasure he
offers is exciting and addictive. But I can’t fall for him . . . because my
love could get us both killed.
steps it up even more with Beau’s story in Atone! Knowing Beau as Cora’s
brother from Vindicate, I was ecstatic that he was going to get his own book.
Beau’s story was really tragic. Not only did he lose his girlfriend when she
was brutally murdered, he was convicted as the killer and his friends and
family turned away from him – except for Cora, his sister. Being released from
prison, Beau’s life isn’t easy. With no job or prospects to speak of, he has a
hard time finding his place in society. When he starts working with Cora at the
agency, Beau meets Vera and everything changes.
wished for and more! While I loved Vindicate and really fell in love with Beth
Yarnall’s writing, Atone has a sense of excitement and suspense that I was
missing from the first novel in the Recovered Innocence series. The plot moves
fast and the story is thrilling, with Beau and Vera having a deep love for each
other that I thoroughly enjoyed reading about. Beth Yarnall has become a go-to
author for me and I highly recommend this fantastic series. Go check out Atone,
you won’t regret it!!
