Sharon Sala's BUTTERFLY exceeds my expectations. From the first line, I was entranced with the story and characters. 

China Brown is six months pregnant and very alone. Her boyfriend has stolen her money, her landlord evicted her from her apartment, and she is faced with homelessness. Knowing her baby deserves better, she finds her way to a homeless shelter. Before she is able to make it safely to the shelter, she witnesses the brutal murder of celebrity photographer, Chaz Finelli. The killer then turns and shoots China, killing her baby and ending her will to live. Without the baby, she has nothing for wh ich to live. 

Ben English is one of the detectives assigned to the case. From the moment he sees this young woman, he is hopelessly drawn to her vulnerability and quickly falls in love. Ben spends his spare moments urging China not to give up. As she begin s to recover, she is trusting Ben to keep his promise. Find the killer before the killer finds her. 

Prolific narrative and genuine chemistry between China and Ben made the story a delight to read. Supporting characters each had their place in the story and kept me guessing the killer's identity until the very end. BUTTERFLY is a must for all romantic suspense fans.
