Title: Dark Memento (Verona Bay #1)
Author: Katie Reus
Having read many of Katie Reus series I have to admit this might just be one I have to have all of her books. Its starts off as most of her books a woman in need of help. Only this time Serenity is a mom who has her head on her shoulders and wants to give her daughter the life she had before she was taken. As a single mom she focus on her daughters and those who are able to keep her safe. Of course that includes Lucas Jordan and his family.
The romance is sweet, the mystery is dark and no one will be able to put the book down. Even tough it is pretty easy to figure out who is tormenting her and yet readers will not be able to stop reading.
Katie Rues once again is able to bring to life a city people will want to visit, people who readers will want to get to know in life and a romance that is sweet, hot and steamy.

She was the one that got away…Eight years ago Serenity Washington watched as her twin sister was murdered. She was lucky to escape the same grisly fate. With her sister’s killer in jail, she relocated and tried to move on with her life. She married a man in the Air Force and started a family, but when her husband dies unexpectedly she moves back to the last place she remembers being happy—Verona Bay, FL.
Now that she’s come home, it’s all starting again…
Within months of Serenity’s homecoming, she receives a ‘gift’—a bracelet from her sister that was never recovered after her death—and a taunting note. Terrified for herself and her young daughter, she turns to the local sheriff for help. But there’s only so much they can do without proof that the gifts aren’t more than sick pranks. There’s been no DNA, no fingerprints left behind—nothing to indicate who’s leaving them. As the horrifying gifts arrive with increasing frequency, Serenity has no doubt that she’s the ultimate target. But with her sister’s murderer—a confessed serial killer—still behind bars, she has no idea who’s stalking her.
She turns to the one man she’s been trying to keep her distance from…
Former Marine Lucas Jordan has been hung up on single mom Serenity since she moved back to Verona Bay, but she’s made it clear she’s not looking for a relationship. When she’s targeted, however, all bets are off. He won’t sit by while she’s terrorized, and with her and her daughter’s lives in danger he’s prepared to stand his ground and protect them both. Together they face the impossible task of trying to figure out who to trust before they all wind up six feet under.FIRST IN SERIES.
