Title: The Power of Love and Murder, Love and Murder Series Book 4

Author: Brenda Whiteside

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Blurb:

This Christmas, Penny Spark’s desire to reconnect with family causes her to expose her true identity—a secret she’s hidden for thirteen years from the political powers who murdered her family.

Jake Winters is out of rehab and coming to grips with his demons. When he meets Penny, he believes this holiday season could be the start of life after rock star status…until her secrets blow up his world.

With a government agent turned hit man closing in on her, Penny and Jake race to expose the presidential contender behind the murders of her family. The murder that stands between them could end their hope for a new life, even if they win the race with death


Grow up, Jian…Penny.

She shivered. It had taken a couple of years to stop thinking of herself as Jianna. Why would she have a relapse now? For so many years, she’d been careful, hiding, forgetting the murders.

Damned holidays.

Damned Jake Winters.

The first time she’d heard his band had been a couple of months before fleeing Red Rock, leaving family and home behind. His voice came across the radio, and she’d practically had her first hands off orgasm. Now, here he was, like someone familiar from her past. And she didn’t need to be anywhere near her past this time of year.

Back then, when she’d found out he was Mandy’s brother, it seemed fate had intervened. Had she met Mandy just to pave the way to connect with Jake Winters? What a stupid, romantic notion that had been. The pedestal she put him on evaporated with meeting him.

She turned east on Route 66 and slowed with the congested traffic. She shook her head and turned down the heater. With one word, he’d rattled her and connected with her past. Now, here he was, looking all gorgeous, acting all recovered and down to earth—and still somehow all mixed up with her memories of the holidays.

He didn’t work at rock star anymore. He didn’t remember what had happened the night they’d met anyway. He was her best friend’s brother, and she, at least temporarily, had to find a way to get along with him. So what if a mere glance from him undid her.

Come on, Penny. She slapped the steering wheel. Get over it.

What I love most about the holiday season:

The world feels different during the holidays. There are more smiles, hugs, laughs, friendly strangers. People give more, enjoy life, sing. And it’s winter. I love winter.

Why is your featured book a must-read to get you in the holiday mood?

The Power of Love and Murder is about redemption. It’s about starting over and loving again. The holiday season makes me feel that life is new, and all things are possible. Penny and Jake discover their new identities and each other.
