Finally healing after her heart-breaking divorce, Anne Freemont is ready to put the painful past behind her.

Discovering an old Victorian for sale in the small mountain town of Carolan Springs may be just what she needs. The beauty of Colorado beckons, so Anne heads west to start her new life.

Yet, before Anne'scompletely settled in, her neighbor is found dead in his compost pile. What’s worse is that Anne’s quirky young neighbor, Kandi Jenkins, could be the killer. When Kandi begs for her help, Anne feels she has no choice but to help the young woman.

However, she finds herself quickly at odds with the local sheriff. And while she uncovers more of the community's secrets, she's also exploring her awakening feelings for Sam Powers, the town's deputy coroner.

Once Anne starts looking at who could be the real killer, the suspect list keeps getting longer and longer. It seems that Carolan Springs is a place of many secrets. But who would want to murder Ralph and who’s willing to kill again to keep their secret?

Excerpt 2:

“Come on, Carson.” With a hard stare from the sheriff, Sam stopped. “I mean, Sheriff Carson. I’m sure Ms. Freemont wants the killer caught like the rest of us do.”
“That’s right. In fact, I have my own suspect list.” Shoot. Why did I say that out loud?
“You do, do you? Are you a private detective, Ms. Freemont?” He stepped closer.
“No. But…” She inched back, stopping when her heel twisted.
“That is the correct answer. No, you are not. You don’t know what you are doing, and you need to stick to doing”—he appraised her—“whatever it is that you do. Leave the detective work to the professionals.”
Was he judging her by the heels she wore? She should never have let Kandi convince her the dress needed heels instead of ballet flats. She bristled at his appraisal. Well, she’d show him what she could do.
“Fine! I’ll just figure out the suspect list on my own.”
“Ms. Freemont, do you know that you can be arrested for interfering in a murder investigation?”
“I’m not interfering.”
“Good. Let’s keep it that way.” He tipped his hat, “Ms. Freemont, Sam.” He strode toward the pub.
Anne sighed in frustration. That man is incorrigible.
