Let us take a minute to wander away from the murders of Berry Springs, to a land far, far away… a small, creepy town called Devil’s Den, where 3 single, rich, uber-smart and super badass sisters run one of the top private investigation companies in the country – Black Rose Investigations…

Murder? Check.
Mystery? Check.
Witches and small-town folklore? Check.
Sexy romance? Check.

Suspenseful, steamy and a little spooky in the most awesome way! With all the twists and turns, Devil’s Gold kept me wondering who the murderer was until the very end. I really liked the main character, Dixie, and her sisters, and the witty banter between them. Not to mention the sexy, mysterious Marine! If you enjoyed the Berry Springs series, or love female sleuth books, you’ll fall in love with the Black Rose Mysteries. Already can’t wait for the next book in the series!

The snow is dropping in Berry Springs... and so are the bodies.

On a pitch-black wintry night, Detective Dean Walker finds a man in the middle of an icy road, with a bullet between his eyes—a murder that is eerily similar to his father’s, which was never solved. Coincidence? No, Dean doesn’t believe in coincidences. He also doesn’t believe in love at first sight, until he meets the victim’s wife.

Psychologist Heidi Novak is hardly settling into her new mansion in the small, country town of Berry Springs, when she receives a late-night visit by the handsome Dean Walker. Seconds after learning that her husband has been murdered, gunshots explode around her and it becomes apparent that she is the next target.

With a massive winter storm looming, Dean races to find the killer and keep Heidi safe, while facing a long a list of suspects, including Heidi’s arrogant sister-in-law and a local, crusty cowboy. As the evidence mounts, Dean becomes more convinced than ever that his father’s murder is connected to the death of Heidi’s husband.

And he can’t help but think . . . will Heidi be the second love he loses to the ice-cold killer?

LOVED it! Great storyline and characters. The Storm has it all; mystery, suspense, romance. I knew I was really into it when I found myself thinking about the book, and wondering what would happen, when I laid down to go to sleep. I read it in two days.
