Rilla Devane was a Nashville Detective
until her father; the Sheriff of a small Tennessee county, is
murdered in the driveway of his mother’s home. She decided to
resign and fill out the rest of her father’s term as a way to
find her father’s murderer. A number of months later she
still doesn’t know who the killer is, and now there are deaths
happening from ecstasy in town. Rilla’s long lost mother has
showed up and the new “writer” in town has her thinking of her
needs, not the needs of the job or the town.
Mac Callahan knows nothing but undercover
work with the DEA. The problem is that he keeps getting
involved with the women in his cases. He is now in the middle
of nowhere, Tennessee to try to find out who is moving meth
labs and ecstasy into the area. Unfortunately the money looks
like it is going through the accounts of sexy Sheriff Rilla.
Will history repeat itself, causing Mac to get shot, or will
Mac and Rilla figure out how to work together and satisfy
their baser needs?
Too Good to be True is a
very enjoyable story with a lot of twists and turns along the
way. The heat between Rilla and Mac is sizzling and Rilla is
one determined woman to keep her goals in mind. I loved how
both characters try to prove the other’s innocence in the
first part of the book after getting over their apprehension.
I would not hesitate to pick up another one of Marie-Nicole
Ryan’s books when I am looking for a good read.
