|Plot Summary of The Confession|
Tahlia Edwards is a major advertising executive in New York City. Years ago, her father was murdered and was the main suspect in her fiance's murder. Afraid to face the truth of who her father truly was, she left town to start a new life.
Jake Randall, a private investigator hired by a mysterious third party, enters Tahlia's life and forces her back home to face what happened all those years ago. He's certain she knows more than she's telling, and she is determined to prove everyone wrong about her father.
As they attempt to come to a truce, their attraction for each other growing each day, Tahlia and Jake are in a race against time to find the truth. As the body count rises, Tahlia learns things about her father and her past that she wished had stayed buried - but now must put her trust in Jake to finally set herself free.
