Author Stacy-Deanne weaves two stories into one book with her latest release Melody. The first story centers on the title character Melody Cruz, who's very suspicious of her sister's new boyfriend Keith. Truth be told Melody has never liked any of her sister, Sarah's boyfriends but her concerns are well founded with Keith who she catches watching her undress. Keith's perverted ways aren't Melody's only concerns but she's having a hard time convincing her sister to see past Keith's good looks, charm, and wealth. Melody's determination to end her sister's relationship becomes dangerous when Keith discovers that Melody has been digging into his past.
The second story interweaved into the book is about a rapist who's terrorizing the city and has been labeled the "Albany Predator". The rapist is only attacking black women making Melody's best friend Aileen a prime candidate. Between the worrying about both Sarah and Aileen's safety, Melody is barely able to focus on herself or her blooming relationship with Lucas Lawson.
Meanwhile, the two detectives assigned to the "Albany Predator" case, Brianna Morris and Steven Kemp, have their hands full with terrified victims and no leads. But they also have no idea just how close to home this case is about to hit. The evidence is pointing in a very unlikely direction! Both stories manage to flow nicely together while sharing the same setting and central character, Melody.
