The last thing Nick Angelis wants to investigate is a murder that implicates Roman Oliver, his brotherís friend. A secret wedding between the children of two enemies sounds straight out of Romeo and Juliet, and Nick cannot believe that he is right in the middle of it all. Scouring the church for clues, he hopes that Romanís appearance at his sisterís wedding was circumstantial. The fact that he was shot too deflects some of the suspicion, but the powerful Oliver family has plenty of enemies.

Caterer J. C. Riley was working in the rectory dining room when the shouting started. No stranger to fights, courtesy of her brothers, J.C. was just trying to decide if intervention was needed when shots rang out. After calling 911, she ventures into the church just as someone is going to shoot Father Mike. She threw her cell phone at the gunman, and caught a good look at his face. She fled, hoping that she was not going to be next on his hit list.

When the pretty caterer peeks out of her hiding place, she sees a very attractive man circling a body on the floor. Is he another gunman or the police? When he orders her to leave the closet, Nick is surprised to find a tiny redhead with a lot of spunk. She doesnít like to follow orders, though, and Nick is forced to handcuff her to a pipe to keep her out of the way Ė at least until he could figure out where she fit in this crazy mess.

The mysterious wedding saga continues in The Cop, and author Cara Summers is really giving her readers plenty to consider. The trilogy has plenty of passion, suspense and mystery.
