Murder for the Time Being by Joanie Bruce

Murder for the Time BeingBook Description:
"You'll pay for this. I'll get you both."

Computer expert Lexi Wynn is frightened. Someone is after her, but she doesn't know why. Is it because of her past or because she was thrust into a deadly bank robbery and might identify the ones responsible? Escaping a failed kidnapping attempt and not sure who to trust, she hopes her specialized skills with computers might flush out the name of the killer. When a tall, dark, and handsome stranger rams into her truck with the hearse he's driving and puts his life in danger to save hers, can she ignore the attraction she feels for him to concentrate on the killers? Or is God the only one who can save her now? 

Drew Sheffield is irritated when a cute lady stops abruptly in front of him and he plows into the back of her pickup. After their initial confrontation, flashbacks of honeysuckle and sassy green eyes linger in his thoughts. When Lexi is threatened, he steps in to help the feisty young woman, in spite of agonizing over a past relationsh

My Thoughts:
This was an enjoyable read.  Honestly, it took me a bit to get into this book, but it was worth it.  Lexi's family is horribly hurt when her mother foils a bank robbery and is shot.  Lexi is afraid her past has come back to haunt her and her family.  Drew is the coroner and is less than impressed when he meets Lexi.  The two of them get off to a rocky start and I really liked that.
The fact that it wasn't an instant love was nice.  There is suspense in is it Lexi's past or Drew's that is interfering in their lives.  There is danger for all of Lexi's family and I really liked her little brother.  He had an attitude but it was understandable.  The author does great with her characters and the story line flowed once you got into it. 
It was a 4/5 for me.  I must say that I loved the way the author wrapped it all up.
