At nineteen-years-old, college student Josie Stratton was kidnapped by a madman and held shackled for ten months in an abandoned warehouse before she finally escaped her hellish prison.

Eight years later, when the body of a young woman is found chained in the basement of a vacant house, Cincinnati Police Detective Zach Copeland is instantly reminded of the crime committed against Josie Stratton. Zach was just a rookie on the perimeter of that case, but he’s never forgotten the traumatized woman with the haunted eyes.

As more information emerges, the crimes take on an even more sinister similarity. But Josie’s attacker died by suicide. Does the city have a copycat on its hands? A killer who picked up where the original perpetrator left off? Or are they facing something far more insidious?

Josie has spent the last eight years attempting to get her life back on track, but now there’s a very real chance she could be the unknown suspect’s next target. As Zach vows to keep her safe, and Josie finds herself responding to him in a way she hasn’t responded to any man in almost a decade, the investigation takes on an even more complex edge of danger.

As past and present collide, Josie and Zach are thrust toward a shocking and chilling truth. A revelation that threatens not only Josie’s life, but everything she’s been fighting so desperately to reclaim.

Josie thought her life would finally be normal. After surviving 10 months shackled and abused in a warehouse eight years ago, she's finally more or less happy in her life. Or at least she's keeping busy fixing up this old B&B.
But suddenly this good looking cop Zach shows up and tells her that a woman has been found dead. With lots of similarities to her case. But her bad guy killed himself. What is happening? And is she in danger??


Grrrr Mia - there she goes again - making me cry all through the book! ☺

This time it was a bit different though. It's not a sweet and heartbreaking romance thingy. It was a real thriller. A romantic suspense novel. But we still have sparks and romance and sexiness of course.☺
I loved this story!
You immediately fall for Josie and Zach and you want them to end up together. But they have to fight through a lot and survive a lot until we might get that happy end!
There are so many heartbreaking moments - especially those back-in-time chapters when we see what Josie went through.
And then we have those mysterious moments, suspensy moments, dangerous moments, exciting moments. But also those sweet and adorable and sparky moments.
And we have hope. There's so much to hope for. For both Josie and Zach. I'm not telling you what there is to hope for other than surviving this book - you need to read it.☺

WHERE THE BLAME LIES was such a beautiful & heartbreaking romantic suspense story! I adored Josie & Zach! Run to your nearest amazon asap - they'll be sold out in no time! Or they might hang around Netflix soon if I'd have any say in it! ☺

A tiny little problem I had while reading. ☺
I have NEVER ever in all my romance and thriller reading years heard the word/job CRIMINALIST. Never! It's a crime scene investigator person. So weird. I googled it even - they exist, but why have I never heard of them? Why does television hide them from us? Or is this somethign locally to Cincinnetti or Sweden or something?? Sooo very weird. ☺
