This review is long overdo, since I finished reading it about 3 weeks ago! When Noonday Ends is the sequel to Carmen's romantic suspense Land of the Noonday Sun. I loved the first book so I snatched up the sequel as soon as it was released. What a fantastic read!
I've read every novel by Carmen DeSousa, in order of release, and I think I love each subsequent book a little more than the last.
When Noonday Ends presents us with a death, a possible murderer, and love that you are just hoping will last and won't be destroyed by secrets and the past.
I love Tom. He is a great protagonist. I loved him as a secondary character in Land of the Noonday Sun and I love him even more as a lead character in When Noonday Ends. He is smart, but broken, and has you rooting for his happily ever after right from page one.
The plot is exciting and slowly reveals clues, but the ending has a twist that will leave you gasping in surprise, and loving every second of it. Carmen takes you on a ride with When Noonday Ends that you won't forget.
Great characters, good plot, fantastic mystery and suspense has me giving When Noonday Ends 5 out of 5 stars.
You can read it on its own, but I definitely recommend picking up Land of the Noonday Sun first.

Purchase: Land of the Noonday Sun
When a new attorney accepts a pro-bono case of a woman suspected of attempted homicide, he ends up with more than he bargained for. She's the ex-wife of one of the oldest and wealthiest families in Ashville, and her in-laws will stop at nothing to conceal family secrets--even murder.
Unable to ignore his attraction, he gets closer than he should. But when all evidence points to the woman he's falling in love with, he will risk everything--his reputation, disbarment, maybe even his life to uncover the truth.
About the Author:
I characterize my stories as modern-day fairytales, as they overflow with romance, mystery, suspense, and of course, tragedy. After all, what would a fairytale be without a tragic event setting the stage? All of my novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic stories that will make you love, laugh, cry, gasp, and hope.
My first two novels, She Belongs to Me and Land of the Noonday Sun, have reached bestseller status right alongside Nicholas Sparks, J.D. Robb, and other great authors. My third novel, Entangled Dreams, released September 2012, and When Noonday Ends is now available.
