Morgan Dane's new client has blood on her hands--and no recollection of what happened--as the #1 Amazon Charts bestselling series continues.

Haley Powell wakes up covered in blood, with no memory of the night before. When she sees a man lying in the backyard, stabbed to death, she has only one terrified thought: What have I done?

Agreeing to take the case as a favor to her PI friend Lincoln Sharp, Morgan must scale a mountain of damning circumstantial and forensic evidence to prove her client innocent. Haley couldn't appear more guilty: her bloodstained fingerprints are on the murder weapon, and she has no alibi. But Morgan can't shake the feeling that this shocked young woman has been framed.

Someone out there is hell-bent on sabotaging her defense, targeting Morgan, her partner, and especially Haley. Someone who will stop at nothing--and whose next move will be deadly.

Melinda Leigh’s Morgan Dane is one hell of a strong smart female character. In What I’ve Done, Morgan and the men of Sharp Investigations are out to clear a young woman of murder.  In this installment there are plenty of twist, turns and red herrings to have kept me involved until the end. This book isn’t as fraught with danger as the last Morgan Dane book, but not every case can be that high of an adrenaline rush. Lincoln Sharp takes a premiere role, which I loved. I really enjoy Leigh’s series and the narrator brought this book up a half star.

Now to my problems with the book, Leigh’s editors failed her as there are a few timeline continuity mistakes. Mistakes like these truly befuddle me, as how can you miss such glaring errors. Maybe it’s because I struggled to read growing up and I fought hard for the privilege. A continuity error is like a glaring neon sign that flashes, editor did not read entire book. Come on Amazon, you are the premiere book seller in the land, your publishing arm should be tops too.  

(It should be noted I received ARC via Netgalley, read ARC, borrowed via Kindle Unlimited on release day, re-read/listened to book  and errors were still in the published book.)

The book does still get four stars from me as I truly love Scarlet Falls and the characters that inhabit the fictional town. Plus a love story between not just two people Morgan and Lance, but an entire family is wonderful.
