A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

Are you looking for a specific book you can't remember the title off, or just CR with that theme. If its the latter, I'd have to find some trope lists as that is a very very common theme in CR, but especially in romantic suspense. And I don't remember all the tropes of the books I read, so I'll have to dig in my reading lists a bit. I do know I have read many of such books, since its so common.

it is most certainly the right place for questions  like that.

It'll take me a tad longer to come up with something. As I read a lot, I'll have to look at every single CR book I read to figure out what the plot was. I don't mark that stuff after I read. I thought I could find a trope list on allaboutromance, but either I am blind or they moved them somewhere.
