One dead sheriff.
One too many secrets.
Newly appointed sheriff Trent Stone is investigating the murder of his predecessor that leads him to Misty Grove. A town lined with regular diners and general stores, yet its inhabitants appear to be anything but ordinary. His curiosity is piqued further when his first encounter with one of its citizens is at the end of her shotgun.
Beautiful Cassie Reed. She challenges his authority and thinks she’s above the law, but Trent sees a vulnerability in her eyes that calls to his protective side and compels him to risk it all…
Deena Sharpe has her hands full with her high school journalism classes. But when a woman dies at a school football game, suddenly everyone is interested in her student’s photographs. Did he catch the crime on film or will this death be another unsolved mystery?
As Deena helps the police investigate this suspicious event, she uncovers some secrets of romance and lies. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but there’s only one word she cares about: Guilty!

Strange happenings multiply as quickly as the list of murder suspects, and Deena finds herself with more adventure than she had bargained for. No pedicure is too painful and no dumpster is too deep as Deena seeks to unveil the killer before anyone else gets hurt.
Miss Lily Strathmore has made a desperate bargain. One last adventure abroad with her botanist uncle and his family, and then she will do as her parents bid and wed the proper (and boring) viscount her mother has selected as Lily’s ideal husband.
James Huntington is on a mission. Retrieve his grandfather’s lost journals from the wilds of Tunisia, and win the estate and fortune he so desperately needs. This quest will be the making of him–or his ruin.
Life or death?
