The book begins when a young woman’s naked body is found in a motel room on Christmas Day. The local law enforcement, Police Chief Zane Duncan and his girl friend and fellow police officer, Stevie Taylor, are called to the scene. Their chief suspect is already in custody in the town jail after admitting to killing another young woman. Did he kill this young woman as well? I wont give away any more of the story line but I will say, I enjoyed their investigation and the cast of characters in the book. There is a reveal at the end of the book and I liked how it all came together. I thought the Author did a great job of tying everything up at the end.
I really enjoyed this book. I was drawn into the story right away. I liked how the Author gave us information about the couples romantic life while having them remain professional while conducting their investigation into the murder of the young woman. The story was told at a fast pace as this is a Novella. It did not feel rushed in any way, yet I wanted more. I found that I really liked the characters of Zane and Stevie and will definitely be reading the first book in the series to see how “it all began”.
I think this is a great book for those who enjoy some mystery. It also has a light romance yet nothing “intimate” happens. There are no sex scenes. The investigation seems real and was interesting. I did not read the first book in the series but I image it was good as well.
