Nick Sullivan decides to come back to Rosemont, Massachusetts after being gone for fifteen years. He stops at his grandmother Lucia's house only to discover that she has been murdered. He flees thinking that he will be blamed since he already has a record. The only person that he can think of who might help him is his old friend Phil.

Philippa Coxwell can't believe Nick showed up on her doorstep after so long. She thought she was over him but that sexy grin still makes her melt. He was surprised that she did not become the lawyer she was destined to be, but a garden designer. Still, she decides to help Nick. If she can keep her feelings under control, maybe they can become friends again. Trying to find Lucia's killer is harder than Phil anticipated, as there is no body or blood to be seen when she visits the house. Could Nick be playing her for a fool? But when things take a dangerous turn, Nick regrets involving Phil, especially as his feelings for her are getting too strong.

Phil is a true to life character you will fall in love with immediately, and Nick is a hot hero with a sensitive side. Readers will identify with the family issues they both face, and will want the two to find happiness. Claire Cross has a breathtaking writing style that grabs you right away - you won't want to put the book down until you read the last page. The blend of mystery and humor makes Third Time Lucky one story you don't want to miss.
