Crime and Passion Book Review (Tomoson)

I read Crime and Passion by Chantal Rhondeau, in exchange for review from Tomoson.

Book description: (copied from Tomoson). 

New release of a romantic suspense/mystery novel. Ebooks will be provided through a coupon at Smashwords. A decorated police officer, more intent on justice than following the letter of the law, lands in trouble when a schoolteacher finds a dead body on the beach. Officer Donovan Andrews knows how to have a good time—ask any woman in town. But when it comes to men abusing their wives or children, Donovan takes it upon himself to make them regret it. Madeline Scott is unlucky in love. All she wants is a quiet place to heal, away from cheating, womanizing men. However, her life is far from peaceful once she stumbles across the body and witnesses someone fleeing the scene. Terror spreads in Pleasant View when the small community hears a killer is on the loose. All evidence points to Donovan, and he realizes someone is trying to frame him. When troubling suspicions from his past surface, even fellow officers believe he’s guilty. Madeline might be the only person who can clear his name, but first he has to win her trust. The body count rises and no one is safe. The murderer makes it clear Madeline is next. Soon, Donovan’s whole world is focused on protecting her and keeping himself out of prison. The more time he spends with her, the harder it is to fight his growing attraction. Since she’s been burned by love, convincing Madeline he’s interested in something more than hot sex may prove harder than keeping her alive.

My Review:

I liked the book. The opening scenes were written well. Madeline, a dog walker, finds a body along the beach, while walking a dog. She calls the authorities. The man, who died, is not liked within the community, and many people wanted him dead, maybe his widow or his kids. The police were called to the victim's house the night before because he hit his children. Donovan, the cop at the scene, is also worried he may be accused of the crime.

I liked the book
