DEVIL'S GOLD - A BLACK ROSE MYSTERY, BOOK #1
Death and Darkness are the norm at Black Rose Investigations . . .
Despite being chronically late, occasionally disheveled and a tad disorganized, Dixie Knight is one of the top private investigators in the country, and when a young woman goes missing in the small, Southern town of Devil’s Den, Dixie takes the case. She expected it to be another ordinary missing person case—until it takes a brutal turn.
While visiting relatives on his two-week leave, Marine Liam Cash bumps into Dixie at the local bar, and his attraction to her is immediate. When he becomes suspicious that Dixie’s current case is connected to two unsolved murders in his hometown, he steps in to help investigate, and keep Dixie safe, whether Dixie wants him to or not.
As the bodies start stacking up, Dixie turns the town upside down looking for the killer—could it be the rumored witch that lives in the mountains; the rich, neurotic doctor’s wife; or the perky, blonde receptionist at the local medical clinic?
Time is running out, and Dixie knows she has to put the pieces of the puzzle together before another body turns cold in Devil’s Den.
