Sadie Carson is an expert on unfinished business. Five years after the derailment of her dreams she’s just barely existing, using her job as a hospice nurse to give others the one thing she can’t seem to find - closure. So when her elderly neighbor Charlie, a brilliant conspiracy nut known for harassing the FBI, is murdered, Sadie suspects Charlie might’ve been onto something and intends to make sure someone solves the mystery of her friend’s death, even if it’s her.

The feisty little blonde may have found the victim’s body, but FBI Special Agent Archer Hayes has no intention of letting some nosy civilian interfere with his investigation. The guilt he feels is bad enough. The last thing Archer needs is another distraction to haunt him. Especially one as beautiful and beguiling as the girl next door.

But throw in a mountain of hoarded evidence and suspiciously coded journals and the case takes a puzzling turn toward a decades old conspiracy cover-up from World War II - one only the victim’s closest confidant can help untangle. Sadie and Archer reluctantly join forces to decode the riddle of secrets Charlie carried to his grave. Or did he? Someone is after a dangerous truth. But to uncover it or bury it is a question that leads the unlikely pair on a quest for redemption that lands Sadie in the crossfire of a desperate killer. And when the dangers of the past and present collide Archer must fight to save the life of the woman he’s falling for . . . only to discover he might be the one in need of saving.

Editorial Reviews

"Brooding, intense hero? Check.Feisty, intelligent heroine? Check.Nail-biting suspense and breath-taking romantic tension? Double-check.Amy Leigh Simpson's debut, When Fall Fades, is a unique and intense novel about overcoming old-wounds and broken dreams with the healing power of love. Set within the framework of a compelling, and sometimes chilling, mystery, Archer and Sadie create an unlikely pair to solve a murder that, not only puts them in jeopardy of losing their lives, but also their well-protected hearts.Simpson's descriptions, emotionally-riveting details, and sometimes evocative scenes keep the reader breathless from the first page to the last. A wonderful debut!" -- Pepper D. Basham, author of The Thorn Bearer and A Twist of Faith"When Fall Fades has a unique blend of sharp-witted characters, snappy dialogue, and a romance that practically sizzles off the page. With a killer on the loose and a mystery in need of solving, this story will be devoured from beginning to end." - Nicole Deese, author of the Letting Go series and the Love in Lenox series"It's hard to believe When Fall Fades is a debut novel. With smart dialogue, plenty of romantic tension, and well-crafted sentences that pull you right into the scene, Simpson is brilliant with a pen. You'll feel like you're traveling through the story with Archer and Sadie, and you'll be left wanting more when the ride comes to an end." - Amy Matayo, award-winning author of Sway and The Wedding Game
