Desperate Deception: Dark Mountain 2


Julia Taylor did ten years in prison for a murder she didn’t commit. Finally released and proved innocent, all she wants is to build up her design business and figure out where her romance with local cop Dylan Andrews is going. She’s ready for a quiet life, but murder and mayhem won’t let Julia Taylor alone.

First she finds her neighbors dead in an apparent murder-suicide. Then an erratic friend from Julia’s time in prison asks her to help find a sex worker who went missing in suspicious circumstances.

As the body count continues to rise, members of the Russian mafia and an unnerving evangelical church begin to cross Julia’s path. Soon, Julia and Dylan are caught up in a maelstrom that threatens both their love and their lives.

Can they find justice before injustice finds them? Or is the pull of a haunted past too strong?

A tense crime novel with romantic elements in the style of JD Robb, Nora Roberts and Martina Cole.
