Fools Rush In - Sunny Frazier, Author

Christy Bristol is an office assistant for the sheriff’s department in the San Joaquin Valley. She sees the crimes that happen in the valley on a second-hand basis, as she files the reports prepared by the officers in the field.

Hell Swamp - Susan Whitfield, Author

I’ve followed SBI Agent Logan Hunter through her internship at Genesis Beach as she solved her first murder.

Logan narrows it down to the caddy Lincoln Tumu… Continue
