Review: Pay the Price by Carol J. Post

Pay the Price is an exciting addition to the Harmony Grove series. If you have read the first two books in the series, you will recognize the small town setting and a few characters, however, this book can definitely be read as a stand alone novel.

Jessica had so much to deal with when she returned home. Not only did she begin to believe that her sister was murdered, not a victim of suicide, but it seemed that the police would not take that possibility seriously and still judged her for the mistakes of her past. Then the threats to her life began!

Through it all, Shane was a great character. Working undercover, he was not able to tell Jess who he truly was. These two had quite the exciting first meet up and Shane seemed to be the only person interested in helping Jess to prove that her sister was murdered.

The attraction grew naturally between these two, yet they were both hesitant to trust their hearts to another. The faith message was naturally woven into the story.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Sometimes homecomings can be deadly…
Jessica Parker left Harmony Grove with bad memories and a vow to never return – until she is called back eight years later to deal with her sister’s suicide. When all the evidence points instead to murder, she is determined to find the killer and bring him to justice. Her handsome new neighbor is eager to help, but she is sure he’s hiding something.

Undercover FBI agent Shane Dalton is in Harmony Grove investigating the crash of a plane full of cocaine and gets more than he bargained for when he runs into Jessica. He’s not sure whether she’s involved or is just going to get in his way. Soon it becomes obvious that someone wants Jessica gone from Harmony Grove. As the threats intensify, Shane finds himself in a race against time to solve both cases. The closer they get to the truth, the closer the killer gets to making them his next victims.

Her books have been nominated for a RITA® award and an RT Reviewers’ Choice Best Book Award.

Carol lives in sunshiny Central Florida with her husband, who is her own real-life hero, and writes her stories under the shade of the huge oaks in her yard. Besides writing, she works alongside her music minister husband singing and playing the piano. She enjoys sailing, hiking, camping—almost anything outdoors. Her two grown daughters and grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all that nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly spoiled dachshund.
