Review – Say You’re Sorry (Morgan Dane #1)

Say You're Sorry
By: Melinda Leigh
Release Date: May 16th, 2017
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Series: Morgan Dane

Morgan Dane, a former prosecutor, returns to her hometown of Scarlet Falls after the loss of her husband in Iraq. Back home and surrounded by her family Morgan is hoping for some comfort and a chance to reset her life as a single mother but, just as she’s offered a career opportunity, Morgan’s babysitter is killed and her neighbor’s son, Nick, is charged with it.

Turning down the job, so that she can defend Nick rather than prosecute him, Morgan turns to her old friend Lance Kruger (a former cop turned private eye) for help in the defense. As Lance and Morgan dive into the secrets of the small town and look for answers they find themselves drawn the targets of the real killer.

If you haven’t caught on by now Melinda Leigh loves writing romantic suspense and I love reading it. Honestly, it’s astounding to me how many books I’ve read lately that would be classed as romance novels but if there was no suspense, murder and thrills, I wouldn’t touch them. It seems I’m a sucker for this formula. So be it.

Morgan, Lance and the rest of the characters are fleshed out, imperfect and believable while also being enjoyable heroes you want to cheer on. Morgan’s chaotic home life and Lance’s growth as he begins to accept that he’s now a private eye and not a cop give them more than just the case to worry about and there wasn’t a boring scene in this book.

About author

Brittney Soban

Brittney is a writer, reader and general lover of all things that end up printed on a page. With a few published poems and a lot of unpublished stories and novels she spends her days doing a nine to five job while wishing she was home working on the worlds she loves to create. As “punishment”, her and her brothers were banned from watching television for a week, leading to Brittney deciding that the free books at the library were better than TV and, in a very Matilda fashion, she took home loads of books every day and has never looked back. A reader of all types of literature, she will read practically anything put in front of her as long as something within it, no matter how small, sparks her interest. Give her high fantasy, science fiction, mystery, it doesn’t matter, but her love does lie within the fantasy and YA genres. A series junkie on top of everything else, she picks and chooses when to begin a series based on how many standalone books also await her attention in her to be read pile. Once she starts a series she will read every installment available back to back until she finishes a series or is forced to wait for the next publication. Called a book dragon by her boyfriend, the term is fitting as she owns more books than anything else and is quite sure her obituary will state she died under an avalanche of books. She truly wouldn’t have it any other way.
