Cheris F. Hodges. Cautious Heart. 2nd ed. Columbus, MS: Genesis Press, 2008.

Caprice Johnson, a second generation police officer, will tell you that it was the cold weather that drove her out of Chicago, but it really was a broken heart. Her man, Damien King, just wouldn’t be true, so Caprice left Chi-town for a job as a police officer in Charlotte. Her new work partner, Nathan Wallace, is smart, fit, friendly, and maybe the type of honest, faithful man that Caprice has despaired of ever finding. Tough cases and Caprice’s reluctance to begin a new relationship are obstacles enough on the road to romance, but there are additional challenges to face. Nathan’s brother, Cordell, is a petty criminal who has moved on to bigger things. Caprice’s old love, Damien, moves to Charlotte to start a new business and woo her back. When Damien is murdered, Caprice is the number one suspect. Suspended from the force, she tries to unravel the mystery of Damien’s death and her complicated feelings for Nathan.
