Summary

Her heart races, as a noise from downstairs wakes her. She checks every room in her small home, but it’s not until she returns to the safety of her bedroom does she see movement. She’s not alone. And nobody can help her now....

Writing scrawled on the wall of Sheriff Jenna Alton’s office overnight leads her, and her deputy, David Kane, to a secluded house on the outskirts of town. Inside, Jenna is devastated to find a much-loved local resident lying in a pool of blood, stab wounds covering her lifeless body. What monster would attack a defenseless woman living alone?

With no trace of the killer at the scene, the deadly message written on Jenna’s door is her only clue. But, as the small town grieves, it leads her to a contractor who recently had access to the woman’s home. She races to interview him, only to discover the wreck of a car on a steep mountain road, with another dead woman inside.

Jenna knows the victims were friends, and regularly went to church together. She thinks a twisted killer has been watching them, waiting for the perfect time to strike. But, before she can make her next move, one of her own team is found unconscious, and covered in the blood of a third female victim - a knife inches away from his hand.

Pulse racing, Jenna questions her shaken deputy, who can’t explain why he was in the woman’s house. Could he really be a killer, or is someone playing an evil game? The clock ticks to uncover a dark secret that connects all three victims. But can she work it out, before another innocent life is taken?

To be continued...

I adore this collection. This book is a placeholder for the future adventures. Which makes me, giddy with excitted anticipation. I can't forget to say the narrator is the best for the job! She is in my mind's eye, Jenna Alton. Bravo

Revenge of the tortured

Someone is killing the elderly ladies of the Blackrock Falls knitting circle…is it one of Jenna’s team? Meanwhile, a new deputy is trying to horn in on Jenna’s guy…Deputy Kane. I enjoyed the sub story of Jenna and Kane’s evolving relationship. Looking forward to the next book.

Great Characters, but…

I do enjoy these stories and am invested in the characters, but if you’re annoyed by repetitive phrases, you may want to bypass. I heard “gripped by fear” or some other variation 4 to 5 times in the first 5 chapters. It is so frustrating, I almost returned this book.

AWFUL!

I love crime novels but this book was so far fetched that it was hard for me to finish it. You would have thought the book was sponsored by GMC since every suspect drove one. I think it was an attempt to throw everyone off the trail of the real killers but if you like crime novels, you’ll figure it out like I did. The narration is AWFUL! Don’t waste your money.

Awesome!

The best! However, I hope the next one will explain the "Poppy saga" in depth. I don't think it's the last of her.
