Tracks of Her Tears (Rogue Winter Novella, #1)

Series: Rogue Winter Novella
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: November 10, 2015

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.

Tracks of Her Tears is the first book in the Rogue Winter Novella Series.  It was a good book but there was nothing original about it.  That’s not to say that it wasn’t intriguing but after reading so many murder mysteries, I would love to see a new story get told. Everything about the story was familiar.  It had marital/domestic drama, the small town where everyone knows your business, etc.  At least, the story had some strong women that reminded me of the women in my own life.

Tracks of Her Tears focuses on Rogue County Special Investigator Seth Harding and his investigation into the murder of a young lady in his small town of Solitude, Oregon. Turns out that she was dating Seth’s brother-in-law, Bruce.  Bruce is now missing.  As more and more people get questioned, the quiet small town doesn’t seem so quiet or innocent after all.  Blackmail and money eventually become the story of the day.  In the midst of all this, a little girl ends up without her mother and a cop’s family is put in danger.  That’s about all that I can say without ruining the larger plot.

Again, Tracks of Her Tears was a good book.  The writing was great and the characters were likeable.  I just wanted more.
