by Gerri Hill

Self-described city girl Lexie Walton is a million miles from nowhere and completely out of her element.

Park ranger Kyler Clemons had loved the vibe and the beach of Mustang Island. Getting caught with her boss’s wife, however, got her transferred to the wild and remote Davis Mountains State Park—literally in the middle of nowhere. Now after four years, she’s forgotten about the beach and has embraced the mountain life, feeling like a local. She hangs out at the Cottonwood Creek Bar and Grill. She watches football with Mark Walton. She’s taken up birdwatching and stargazing as hobbies. She is perfectly content. No stress. No drama. And no desire to date.

Then Lexie Walton waltzes into her life.

After losing her cushy job in Austin―and unable to find another one―Lexie accepts her parents’ offer to join them and her brother in running a rustic lodge and restaurant in the remote Davis Mountains of West Texas. Hesitant to commit to such a drastic move, she agrees to a trial run―two months. Two months would get her through Christmas and the New Year. Her friends thought she was foolish to make such a move. There was no nightlife, no parties, no spin class, and no green smoothies. And no chance of dating. That was a plus, however. After her breakup with Crazy Cathy, she wanted no part of the dating game. This remote area would do nicely.

But then she meets this cute, tree-hugging park ranger who turns her world completely upside down.

When Stevie gets her heart broken, Cass doesn’t expect to be the one consoling her. And after a series of unfortunate events and a last-minute road trip bring her closer to Stevie, Cass starts questioning more than just her feelings for Stevie… like her path in life. Still, she definitely shouldn’t be trying to casually catch Stevie under the mistletoe, right?

An elusive and dangerous serial killer is terrorizing New York. The murderer’s method of operation is baffling and grotesque. There seems to be a specific purpose for the killings, but no one can quite grasp it.

When two police detectives arrive at the first crime scene, their dislike of each other is evident, and they immediately collide. Fiona Sapiro, head of the newly conceived New York Special Force unit, urgently seeks to become involved with the investigation and help end the deadly assaults. Sophie Andrews, a detective from the nearby precinct where the murders occurred, rejects all offers of Fiona’s participation. Both women desire an end to the bloodshed and the capture of the killer, but first, they will need to put their differences aside to solve the crimes.

Over time, the killer becomes progressively more arrogant, and the carnage at the crime scenes intensifies. As Fiona and Sophie are forced to accept collaboration, their relationship deepens. Will they finally acknowledge they are a perfect fit, or will they run away from feelings that both deem perilous?

One thing is certain… the killing must stop!
