Dangerous Relations by Marilyn Levinson





Arden Wesley returns to her home town because her cousin, Suziette, has been murdered leaving behind her husband, Brett Waterstone, and her young daughter Leonie. When Suziette’s will is read, Arden has been named as Leonie’s guardian. She loves Leonie, but there is a big problem—the girl’s stepfather, Brett, also loves Leonie and Leonie loves him as her father. Arden is torn because she doesn’t want to leave her good job as a lawyer in New York, but she also doesn’t want to take Leonie away from the only father that she knows. Of course it isn’t long before she realizes she has feeling for Brett and he for her—though nothing is simple for either of them.

Though the romance is the main part of the story, there is still the big question, who killed Suziette? There are many suspects and a disagreeable detective as the tale unfolds, Suziette’s indiscretions revealed and motives uncovered. While Arden wrestles with her decisions and feelings, she realizes she also is in danger with threats coming from several directions.

Dangerous Relations would make the perfect Lifetime move. If you like a strong romance woven into a compelling mystery, you’ll love this romantic suspense.

P.S. On different lists we're on people get us mixed up at times due to the same first name. If they could see us there's be no problem. Marilyn is young and most attractive. (Maybe it's not so bad that people mix us up. he he.)

Yes, I do believe this would make a great Lifetime movie! Lifetime is one of my favorite channels, along with Hallmark!

Great cover, by the way!
