Series: Patricia Amble Mystery
But Tish's idyllic small-town dream fizzles when she finds more in the creepy basement than what was revealed on the seller's disclosure-what looks like traces of foul play. With a hovering police officer living next door and a possible love interest just two doors down, Tish has her hands full. Will she discover the truth before it's too late?
Tish Amble is renovating a Victorian-era home to sell before moving on to her next project. Her own basement lends much to her mental and emotional instability, first when she sees a startling but unproven vision of a bodys imprint in the cement that fills in the houses old cistern, and then again when a body really is discovered in her basement and she becomes the primary suspect for the crime and the laughingstock of the small town. When she learns that her dream British hunk is involved in some suspicious goings-on, she finds herself in the midst of the criminal chaos, despite her innocence. She is helped greatly by her police officer neighbor, who always seems to have her back, even though she doesnt trust him. Tish soon finds herself being pursued by the real killer in a desperate chase, but survives and is able to uncover her redeeming evidence and help put the case to rest.
The suspense and confusion of unsolved crimes and budding relationships find Tish holding back and pushing forward at the same time, trying to clear her name and be free of her past while behaving in eccentric and suspicious ways that only draw more attention to herself. Tishs behavior often seems unrealistic and over the top, and her imagination is even more sporadic than her actions. In her mind, she eventually accuses practically everyone she meets. Her withdrawn and untrusting personality keeps her on guard against her new neighbors. However, she quickly gets caught in a misleading love triangle with two Rawlings men and becomes friends with several people she judged too harshly at first. In the midst of ever-increasing drama and chaotic events, Tish struggles to carry on with her life while her past still haunts her.
Though the story gets off to a slow start, once the action gets rolling, Love Me If You Must is able to draw the readers in just enough to keep them interested. At times, several of the characters actions seem unrealistic and exaggerated. A few subtle twists will catch the reader off guard, but it does not take a Sherlock Holmes to figure out where the plot is headed. I wouldnt advise any hardcore mystery readers to indulge in this book, but if you are looking for a light novel with some romance and mystery thrown in, Love Me If You Must is a good pick.

AmandaAge: 25-34Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Good but not GreatApril 15, 2014AmandaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 5Meets Expectations: 1Read it if you must. It's a decent read if you find yourself with time on your hands, but the "mystery" is negligible, as is the "romance." Tish stands on the brink of being a truly good character, with interesting flaws and a distinctly quirky personality, but just doesn't quite come to life, and barely takes a stab at a character arc.
Overall, it could have been a great book with a stronger plot and some character ironing, but it just doesn't make it.

Quite a different kind of story and a lot of who done it, humour and life's embarrassing moments. A little romance, some renovation, and a closer look at who we are in the light of Gods grace.
Jean WestAustin, TXAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Unpredictable funJune 17, 2013Jean WestAustin, TXAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5While the ending was disappointing, the rest of the story was fascinating. I had a great time reading it and just couldn't put it down. When I finished reading it I learned it is the first of 3 in a series. Boy was I thrill to learn that and immediately bought the other two. Right away I noticed the reason for the disappointing ending of this book is because the story continues. I am excited to read the other two and see where the story takes us. I love this author. She is funny and unpredictable in her writing, which in my book is a great combination!

AnonymousFloridaAge: 55-65Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5This book isn't worth the timeMarch 27, 2012AnonymousFloridaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2The book is slow starting, very quirky, and somewhat unbelievable. Too much "fake" mystery. Hardly any Christian values. Heroine just gives up in the end. Wouldn't recommend.
Most reviewers liked this book so I trusted them. Don't!! Won't read this author again.
