When Fall Fades

Amy Leigh Simpson’s debut novel begins with a murder and spirals into an exciting romantic suspense. There are great twists along the way, and the romance is . . . shall we say . . . hot and heavy, but CLEAN! All the romance you could want, with none of the harmful R-rated stuff you want to avoid.

The story takes place in St Louis, and having lived there for a few years, the setting brought to mind fond memories of places around the city. Simpson embeds her story into the setting and each gives life to the other.

The mystery plot is very well done, with surprises along the way. It could easily stand on its own—without the romance—but add the tortured FBI agent who can’t take his mind off the gorgeous girl next door, and you’ve got a page turner!

When Fall Fades appeared on USA Today’s Serena Chase’s “Must-Read Romances of 2015.” It’s a definite hit! Give it a try and let us know what you think. You can pick up a copy here.
