She can’t stop thinking about a drowned girl’s face… because it reminds her of her own. Overcoming a past filled with scars, Lei makes a life for herself and her dog, Keiki, as a cop in the sleepy Big Island town of Hilo. When a routine patrol turns up two murdered teens, Lei’s world is rocked. She knows one of the girls, and she can’t rest until she finds answers—not only about the victims, but about her own shadowed past as well.
Apple Pie a la Murder
Ever decide to do a good deed and it ends up making people suspect you of murder? No? Just me, then? I blame my best friend, Lucy Gray. She encouraged me to ask Henry Hoffer to sell my pies in his restaurant, so I brought him an apple pie to try, on the house. Unfortunately, after trying my pie, Henry ended up dead. I didn’t do it, I swear. It’s bad news for me. Turns out the police chief had recently hired a Detective, and although he’s tall, dark, and handsome, he’s also determined to find the killer and slap the cuffs on them. And he’s looking in my direction.
