He’s the ruthless lawyer with a not-so-little black book, and one simple rule as unyielding as his heart: Nothing more than a month.
She’s the doctoral student helping to raise his niece. His brother’s best friend. And the valium for his soul he had no business wanting.
To be fair, she did ask him for advice–on what she could do to stop being ‘the nice girl’ for a little bit. All he did was answer truthfully: “Try something new that excites you.”
Malena, a young, free spirited woman in the last year of undergraduate school is trying to figure out where her heart belongs with this thing called love. What she fails to grasp is that the love she’s seeking is not dependent of other’s actions, but of her own. Open emotionally, Malena and her boyfriend Maayad – or what she considers him to be – find themselves struggling to keep faith alive in their relationship. One chance too many has been given, and Malena finds herself torn between what her heart yearns for, and what her mind needs; solace and security.
Mellow, and as smooth as silk, Demir has been nothing but the perfect best friend to Malena. Coming to her defense has always came natural to him, and having been placed in the friend zone from the day they met, Demir doesn’t mind his title one bit.

The trouble with solving murders in a little town like Bald Eagle Falls is that everybody knows about it, and then they expect you to solve their cases too. When Bella brings a new—or rather a cold—case to Erin, she protests that she is not a detective. But Bella really needs her; how could an old woman just have gone missing without anyone following up on it? How could they just accept Ezekiel’s assertion that his wife was fine and she was just off visiting. Eventually, that excuse must have worn out.
Meanwhile, a blast from Erin’s own past—a foster sister Erin would rather not see again—shows up, bringing with her another set of complications.
