Murder in Cherry Hills
Kat Harper has barely settled back into small-town life in Cherry Hills, Washington when she spies her neighbor’s tortoiseshell cat Matty sitting on her doorstep. But Matty’s not making a social call. The newly orphaned feline has just witnessed her owner’s violent death. But who would want to kill the elderly Mrs. Tinsdale? Was it one of her fellow animal rescue volunteers? A money-hungry daughter? A local veterinarian with something to hide? Or someone completely unexpected?
Police Detective Melissa Longstreet protects the laidback resort town of Spring Harbor, Texas, which has its own dark secret. The bodies of seven young women have washed up on the beaches in town—all murdered in the same grotesque manner. Dust, a deadly party drug, is found in their system and their IDs don’t match the stereotypical prostitute description. As Melissa and her partner, Pete Rodriguez, conduct an investigation, they soon discover that The Spring, the flashy resort that the town depends on for the local economy, has a ghastly secret. One that the resort managers are hiding very well.
