Exciting and fun! It was like watching an action movie. I don’t normally like romantic suspense, but I found myself rooting for the main couple and really digging the ending!! Can’t wait for the next book in the Winding Road Redemption series!!!” - Amazon Review

Nail biting tension/suspense greets you in the beginning and follows Madi and Julian throughout the story. Loved Julian who is determined to protect Madi, but he sure takes a licking, but keeps on ticking! Intrigue that draws you through a maze of twists, turns, and surprises leaving you reading into the wee hours of the morning.” - Goodreads Review

Read this book in a day! Couldn't put it down! I really enjoyed Madi and Julian as well as all of the other characters. The plot kept me intrigued and interested up until the end.” - Amazon Review

Top notch intrigue!” - Thoughts of a Blonde (full review here)

Usually, starting a new book after dinner is no big deal. I read a few chapters and head off to bed at a reasonable hour. Not with this book. Credible Alibi had me turning pages even as my eyes drooped from exhaustion and my (sensible) brain screamed at me to turn out the light and go to sleep. It didn't happen. Like the popular Sheldon Cooper meme on Facebook, I didn't need sleep; I needed answers.” - Goodreads Review


“Julian, I’m the only one who knew the gun was here,” she cried. Her body stiffened. She raised her head. “I know everything keeps pointing to me but I swear I didn’t kill her. I swear it!”

Julian leaned forward and pressed a kiss onto her forehead.

“I know you didn’t do it,” he assured her. “But you weren’t the only one who knew where the gun was. Someone else had to have known. And if you didn’t tell anyone where you put it, then—”

“Then someone must have followed me.”

Julian tried not to let his body tense. He nodded, gaze sweeping the trees around them.

“But why?” she asked into his chest.

More than anything Julian wished he could give her an answer. He wished he could make it all better. Assuage her worries and take her to bed and give her some pleasure in place of the pain that seemed to keep finding its way to her.

But, instead, he was about to invite more worry and pain.
