The Friday night bar fight in the small town of Sweet Home, Oregon didn’t get all that out of hand. Just a spoiled, drunk offspring of a big fish in the local pond, harassing an overworked bartender. Jonathan James—JJ—comes to her defense and ends up with slashed tires for his trouble. By morning, JJ will be dead.
It was supposed to be police officer Lacey James’ day off, but murder investigations wait for no one. Everyone describes the victim as a good guy, new to town, which leaves Lacey wondering who would want him dead.
As Lacey searches for the motive behind the crime, nothing seems to fit. And with the list of suspects growing daily, Lacey and her partner, Eli Davidson, unearth a dark side to this close-knit community so stunning that it rocks Sweet Home to its core. Secrets begin to emerge telling a twisted story of their own—tales of jealousy, lies and revenge.
In their race to uncover the truth, can Lacey and Eli unmask the culprit before the killer strikes again?
