In the first thrilling Rogue Winter Novella, sleepy little Solitude, Oregon, wakes up to another deadly threat.
County investigator Seth Harding intends to spend the holidays with his newly reconciled family, but a few days before Christmas, a homicide thwarts his plan. Seth arrives at the scene and makes a painful discovery: the victim is his brother-in-law’s girlfriend. Her apartment has been ransacked and her toddler left motherless. To make matters worse, Seth’s brother-in-law, Bruce, is missing. With Solitude locked in a rare, deadly deep freeze and the temperature plummeting, the residents launch a desperate search.
Seth calls his wife, social worker Carly Taylor, to take the case so the little girl doesn’t get lost in the foster care system. With the holidays near, Carly brings the child home with them to celebrate Christmas. But when the Taylor farm is also trashed, Seth and Carly must race against time—and against a paralyzing winter storm—to find Bruce and catch a killer in the first pulse-pounding sequel to the Rogue River Novellas.
In this installment, Carly and Seth’s jobs are much harder as their new case strikes very close to home. The victim is Carly’s younger brother Bruce’s girlfriend and Bruce is missing. They must work very hard to solve this case and locate Bruce before the elements get to him.
It’s all hands on deck as the town rallies to help the family, but even more secrets are coming to light, much to everyone’s consternation. Also, Ms. Leigh gives us a peek into Carly and Seth’s relationship after their reconciliation and how hard they are both working to keep each other happy.
TRACKS OF HER TEARS has well-developed characters, an intriguing and fast paced plot and a happy ending. Definitely one to read along with the preceding novellas in the Rogue series.
