About the book:
Special Agent Bella Jordan is assigned to investigate a series of murders in West Texas that are linked to the Spider Rock Treasure. Since she spent the first fifteen years of her life in this area, FBI authorities believe she can get the job done. What they don’t know is that one of their prime suspects—a man who’s been on their wanted list for years—is deeply connected to Bella’s past.
The other prime suspect is Carr Sullivan, the man who owns the ranch where the murders occurred. Carr was once one of the wealthiest businessmen in Dallas and has a shady past a mile long. But it appears he’s turned his life around. Can Bella trust him, or is he just trying to cover his tracks?
As Bella probes deeper into the case, threats on her own life convince her the killer is someone she knows. But it soon becomes clear he’s not working alone, and she’ll need to face the past she’s tried so desperately to forget in order to solve the case and prevent more murders.
This next book in this series set in TX. When Bella, a successful FBI agent is handed a case with three new victims, treasure hunters, but not just treasure hunters. They are linked to a man on a fugitive list. Carr Sullivan is the top of their suspect list, real estate developer, blond hair, blue eyes and what Bella thinks….”not a lady killer.” She is skeptical of him though, as he supposedly has changed from a drug user, to being a Christian who helps high risk boys. Their lives intersect as the victim’s list grows and they wonder who will be next on the killer’s list!
This book is one of those happy, suspense reads, scary enough to make you want to keep reading, but not too scary to keep you up at night. The touch of romance will keep your heart warm and fuzzy.
