Vera Custodio has never fallen in love, though she has strong feelings for her friend and sometimes lover, Zach Spencer. Long-forgotten memories resurface when Vera discovers Zach’s mother was the woman her father supposedly murdered many years ago.
After losing his leg, former triathlete Zach Spencer reevaluates his life—and realizes he’s falling in love with Vera. After she ends their relationship, Zach is determined to prove his love and follows her to Australia in search of the killer.
Caught between a web of family secrets and a deranged adversary, Vera and Zach must depend on each other for survival. Love blossoms, but the truth explodes everything Vera knows about herself. Will she close her heart forever or risk it all for a shot at happily-ever-after?
Book 3 of The Chance For Love Series – Each book can be read standalone, but earlier plots will be revealed by reading later books.
I could not put this book down. No joke. If I didn’t have 3 kids to watch over and didn’t have to wake up well before I’d like to get the kids to school, the book would have been finished in one day. But since I do have 3 kids to watch over and I did have to get up early to take my big kids to school, I didn’t quite finish it all in one day. I finished three quarters in one day because I just couldn’t put it down!
This is a great romance and “who done it” mystery – my favorite kind of read!
Knowing Vera is the third book in the series, but you really couldn’t tell. I got that I missed some things in the previous two books that I would love to read and put all the pieces together, but it wasn’t necessary to have read the first two in order to read this one.
I enjoyed every second of this book and will be going back and reading the first two – if they are anything like Knowing Vera, they will be fabulous! I’m sure of it!
