She knows she didn’t do it, but everybody thinks she did.

It all begins when best-selling author Sophie O’Brion is the last person to see a murder victim alive. She looks even more guilty when a woman from her church is beaten, and Sophie was seen with her just hours before. Suddenly, people she has known her entire life begin pointing accusing fingers at her.

Marine Master Sergeant Burke Maguire, an old flame who dumped Sophie years ago, has recently been hired as a police officer in Forman Falls, Texas, and is assigned her case. She doesn’t want his help.

As she gets deeper and deeper into trouble, though, she must rely on him, but trusting him is another matter.

Will they be able to work together, maneuver dangerous twists and turns, and finally clear her name? 


A clean romantic suspense novel that grips you from the very beginning and won’t let you go! The Vacant House is an unforgettable adventure. Read it today, if you have plans to stay up all night.

My Review 

This author is new to me, and I have to say I really enjoyed the unique mystery/romance she presented in this book. I felt like Sophie was really well developed, and I had a clear picture of her in my mind. One thing I loved about the book was the Rear Window vibe as that's one of my favorite movies, and I felt like with the book having to do so  much with neighbors, it had a similar type vibe. The ending really blows you away, and the twists and turns on the way really keep you glued to the page. I enjoyed the light clean romance, and how it didn't interrupt the mystery too much. Each piece of the puzzle was slowly revealed to keep you guessing until the very last pages of the book. Overall, my only issue may be the dominant first person voice proved a little confusing for me. I recommend this one for the mystery/suspense reader who likes a light clean romance.



I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are entirely my own.

More from Tamara

Book 1 of Sophie O’Brion Mysteries introduces us to Sophie O’Brion, a quirky, funny, and reclusive mystery writer who lives in a small town in East Texas. Because Sophie looks at life through a lens of humor, funny moments appear often. There are frightening moments, too, in her quest to clear her name from pointing fingers accusing her of murder and attempted murder. Sophie is vulnerable, yet strong; reclusive, yet kind; funny, yet serious. And she is determined! It doesn’t help that added to all this is the return of her high school sweetheart who dumped her 12 years before to join the Marines. As a new police officer, Burke is assigned her case, but she doesn’t want his help. Sparks fly, trust doesn’t, and love stays comfortably in the past. Will Sophie and Burke be able to save her reputation and re-ignite their love for each other? I hope you enjoy this book! Happy reading!
