George Washington Township, New Jersey has seen its fair share of crime and tragedy. Most recently, a young boy is missing from his home and the tenacious Detective Claire Goodnite is eager to find him.

But the case is stirring up old memories best left forgotten. When a blast from her own past, FBI Special Agent Wesley O’Connell, turns up, Claire finds it hard to keep old ghosts at rest. And even harder to keep the sexy SAIC out of her case and her bed.

Claire Goodnite is the best damn detective in the state of New Jersey and you better believe she's coming for you.

Novel Thoughts

Well. well, well… Tell Me a Story was a very intriguing and suspense filled novel with a killer I didn’t anticipate and while the main mystery for this story was solved there is a larger story arc that we don’t have the answers too and honestly, I’m dying to have that mystery solved!!

I haven’t read anything by Jennifer Rebecca since her debut novel and I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this story, the plot wasn’t what I expected at all. It was honestly a little refreshing to have a different backstory for our tough as nails detective heroine. He backstory is one that is tragic, but made Claire fierce and will go the extra distance to serve and protect. Even, if she has to dodge her overprotective older brother and former lover, who are the Chief of Police and and FBI agent, respectively.

Even though both, Liam and Wes, think that they are helping her by pulling her form a case that hits close to home, they do nothing but further piss off Claire, because she thinks that they don’t believe in her even if they both claim to love her.

Tell Me a Story is riddled with miscommunication between ex lovers with a rocky past and one wanting a future while the other is dealing with demons and doesn’t want the world to know, all the while trying to save a child and find a killer before it’s too late. Tell me a Story caught me by surprise and I can’t wait to read more of the Claire Goodnite series!
