From the back cover
She knows she didn’t do it, but everybody thinks she did.
It all begins when best-selling author Sophie O’Brion is the last person to see a murder victim alive. She looks even more guilty when a woman from her church is beaten, and Sophie was seen with her just hours before. Suddenly, people she has known her entire life begin pointing accusing fingers at her.
Marine Master Sergeant Burke Maguire, an old flame who dumped Sophie years ago, has recently been hired as a police officer in Forman Falls, Texas, and is assigned her case. She doesn’t want his help.As she gets deeper and deeper into trouble, though, she must rely on him, but trusting him is another matter.
Will they be able to work together, maneuver dangerous twists and turns, and finally clear her name?
A clean romantic suspense novel that grips you from the very beginning and won’t let you go! The Vacant House is an unforgettable adventure. Read it today, if you have plans to stay up all night.
Sophie O’Brion is a best-selling author who writes mysteries, yet she never thought that she would be the main character in her own. For no apparent reason, her old principal and neighbor, Mr. Farnsberry accuses her of killing his cat Yoda. After some investigative work, she finds that Yoda is very much alive – which makes her wonder what Mr. Farnsberry have against her? He couldn’t possibly still be upset about the pranks she pulled on him when she was in school, right? Things start quickly spiraling out of control when Mr. Farnsberry disappears and her next door neighbor is murdered in the middle of the night. It’s starting to become very apparent that someone wants Sophie out of the way. Things are just adding up to nicely – her car appears to have been involved in a car accident with Mr. Farnsberry, her house is broken into (a couple of times) and she is attacked. With the help of Officer Burke Maguire, (her ex-boyfriend, which adds ANOTHER layer to the story) they try to peel back the layers of this mystery, but will they be able to solve it in time?
What did I think?
So this is the first book I’ve read by Tamara G Cooper and I really liked it. Like I mentioned above, it was a classic “who done it” story, but it had SO many twists and turns that I had no idea who the bad guy was and why they were after Sophie. Honestly, there were moments when I was a bit confused because someone I thought was a bad, wasn’t really, or something super unexpected happened; however, everything came together really well in the end. I LOVED the main character, Sophie. She was so funny and she did so many things that made me want to laugh out loud. The relationship between Sophie and Burke was also very entertaining. They had a unique relationship because of their past; however, they didn’t let it affect where they were now… much. Overall, with unique twists and turns and suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat, I rate the book 4 out of 5 stars **** . I’m looking forward to reading about Sophie’s adventures in the next book in the Sophie O’Brion Mysteries.

About the Author
More from Tamara
Book 1 of Sophie O’Brion Mysteries introduces us to Sophie O’Brion, a quirky, funny, and reclusive mystery writer who lives in a small town in East Texas. Because Sophie looks at life through a lens of humor, funny moments appear often. There are frightening moments, too, in her quest to clear her name from pointing fingers accusing her of murder and attempted murder. Sophie is vulnerable, yet strong; reclusive, yet kind; funny, yet serious. And she is determined! It doesn’t help that added to all this is the return of her high school sweetheart who dumped her 12 years before to join the Marines. As a new police officer, Burke is assigned her case, but she doesn’t want his help. Sparks fly, trust doesn’t, and love stays comfortably in the past. Will Sophie and Burke be able to save her reputation and re-ignite their love for each other? I hope you enjoy this book! Happy reading!
