Rodriguez discovered there wasn't a trace of any murder having been committed! But hearing-impaired heiress Claire Winthrop insisted she'd stumbled upon a slain employee in her father's high-rise building and claimed she could ID the hit man. Although the lack of evidence pointed to an open-and-shut case of a pampered socialite clamoring for attention, A.J. sniffed a deadly cover-up. Powerfully drawn together, the street-tough lawman soothed the shell-shocked princess with a tantalizing kiss that bewitched both their hearts.

Review to come :)
Ms. Miller penned a great mystery here that had you guessing until the end. Her ability to take the little things we (as hearing individuals) take for granted and spin it into a comprehensive, complex story was just amazing. And the players involved – the father, the uncle, the security chief, the secretary, the temp – they all had me second guessing myself at every turn about what happened and whodunit.If you’ve been reading the Taylor Clan/Precinct series from the beginning, you’ll recognize A.J. as youngest Taylor brother Josh’s partner from The Rookie. I had pegged A.J. as sort of the serious workaholic compared to Josh’s more laid back temperament but I didn’t realize until this story just how far it went. You get to see who Josh and A.J. work together in the Prologue for this story if you didn’t get to read the other.His father had been trying to tell A.J. something was going on at the company where his father worked as a janitor but it didn’t weigh high enough on rebellious teen A.J.’s list of priorities at the time for him to be concerned. Then his father is murdered and his whole life is flipped on its axis. A.J. straightens out his life and becomes a cop but he hasn’t been able to bring his father’s killer to justice. When the Fourth Precinct receives a call from the very company his father used to work for, he figures this might be his chance. When he gets there, he finds the owner’s daughter, Claire, claiming she witnessed a murder. Only there’s no body. No blood. No evidence at all that a crime has been committed. Even when the woman Claire thought was murdered calls from vacation to say she’s fine, the seemingly pampered socialite doesn’t change her story. Only there seems to be too many people in her social circle trying to pressure her to do just that. Did she or didn’t she see someone murdered? Is this murder related to what happened to his father? What would the killer do to Claire when he realized he’d left a witness?If I told you the answers, you wouldn’t read the book. And if you like ultimate suspense and mystery with a healthy dose of tender romance and awe-inspiring love, this is definitely one you’d want to tag for your TBR pile. Pick it up now at Amazon and check out Ms. Miller’s site for more information on these books and more.
Claire is hearing impaired and comes from a rich family. She's 23 and still lives with her protective family. But after seeing the face of a murderer, she makes sure that the authorities check out the crime. Yet, when the police arrive to look at the body, nothing is there. This leaves everyone to believe that Claire has made everything up for attention or just isn't feeling ok. The detective that arrives is A.J. Rodriguez. He is much older than Claire and from the working class. At first he doesn't believe Claire but decides to give her case a chance. It was nice how A.J. actually listened to Claire unlike her family and the hearing impairment didn't cause any trouble in communication. It also wasn't too apparent who the second culprit was until the end. After reading so many romance and romantic suspense books, I have become very picky and a little less likely to give a 5 for most books. I enjoyed reading this but just like most other books, especially those from Harlquin Intrigue, I get kind of tired of reading how the characters feel that they aren't good enough for the other character. These thoughts are understandable but kind of irritating for me now since I have read so much of it. Though I was really glad that Claire didn't have too many of these thoughts and took the first step in standing up for their relationship. Julie Miller is one of my favorite Harlequin Intrigue authors and I never hesitate in reading her books. So if I had read this a few months ago, I probably would have given it a 5.
synopsis:claire is hearing impaired, and believes that she witnesses a murder one night in her father's office. when she finally makes someone believe her, they head to the office and the police can't find any evidence. aj believes claire however, and works with her to protect her and uncover the mystery. aj is quite a bit older than claire, but he recognizes a spirit that wants to go her own way, and not have things done for her. he also reconizes that he has feelings for her that go beyond witness/investigator.what i liked: that claire was determined to stand on her feet and that she fought her family to do so. i liked that she stuck to her guns and didn't take the easy way out. aj was so head over heels with her, even though he felt awkward about the age difference and the class difference (his father had worked as a janitor for her father) and i liked that too. i really liked that claire didn't really see the differences, just two people meant to be together.what i didn't like: that it took so long for people to come on board with the fact that claire had witnessed something.
I think this was one of my favorites from the series yet, loved the characters in this book Clair was a adorable and amazing she didn't let her hearing impairment as a chip on her shoulder instead she wanted to do everything else that a young women wanted to do , have a life and career of her own making and a man who loves her. That and the fact that she gets the attention from a sexy latin blooded detective is all the more merrier.
Not the best. I liked AJ and I liked Claire, but their relationship didn't wow me. And some of the plot didn't make sense. Why would you go back to your apartment if you knew a hit man was after you (view spoiler)[and he just shot up your safe house (hide spoiler)]?
Loved this book, I think it's my favorite by Julie Miller. I have reread it multiple times.
I love this book, it had action, intrigue and a believable romance.
Not my genre so I couldn't get into it.
