When the prom queen is found brutally murdered, Sheriff Sharyn Howard recalls that a similar murder occurred on the night of her prom ten years ago. Her father was the sheriff of Diamond Springs, and the man he sent to prison for the murder now sits on death row awaiting his execution. But Sharyn’s convinced there are too many similarities between the two murders and that the true killer is still at large.
Her move to reopen the first case pits her against the community and her mother, who feels she’ll destroy her father’s reputation in the process. But Sharyn is determined to discover the truth and catch the real killer before he can strike again.
Much like the fact that there are various reasons behind a person’s desire to eat and live healthier, there are also many diets you can pursue to achieve your dream body. One of the most effective and controversial of these is the Ketogenic Diet.
The objective of this book is not to convince you to take the Keto diet but to present to you what the Keto diet is, how it works, what to expect once you carry it out, and how to make sure it will work for you.
This e-book will also show you the guidelines to follow, myths to bust, and the science to believe when it comes to this low-carbohydrate diet. In addition to those, you will also get a basic, very simple one-week meal plan to start things up and make your transition to low-carb living as smooth as possible.
