Back Cover: Battling his own personal demons, Police Chief Jonah Westfall has experienced the dark side of life and is committed to eradicating it. When a pair of raccoons are found mutilated in Redford, Colorado, Jonah investigates the gruesome act, seeking to unmask the perpetrator before the rime escalates and destroys the tranquility of his small mountain town. Jonah fights for answers -- and his fragile sobriety -- amid a rising drug threat and never-ending conflict with Tia Manning, a formidable childhood friend with whom he has more than a passing history. But he can't penetrate every wound or secret -- especially one fueled by a love and guilt teetering on madness. From best-selling author Kristen Heitzmann comes a spell-binding tale of severed connections and the consequences of life lived alone.
My Thoughts: Good book. The characters are very interesting. All the main characters seemed to have hard childhoods, but all in different ways. I loved how she brought them all together in their various friendships and relationships. My favorite character was Tia Manning. I would love to run a shop in a small mountain town like she does. She seems to know a lot and understand people and loves to help them with problems. I have to say, the book really didn't end the way I expected, but it was an excellent ending. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery.
