Sometimes, secrets refuse to stay buried--
A ten-year-old accidental killing and an ancient cursed doll are only part of Julia Bennett's problems. When she returns to her hometown of Covington, Oklahoma for an old friend's funeral, she's thrust into the middle of a murder case--and discovers she never stopped loving her high school sweetheart.
Jake Devlin is now the sheriff of Covington and faced with solving a murder. He isn't surprised to find Julia in the middle of things. She still seems like the troublemaker whose reckless mistake caused a man's death years ago--and who broke his heart when she left him without so much as a goodbye.
Jake makes it clear he's over her, and Julia can't wait to leave Covington behind. But when another friend dies, she knows she must stay. Can they put the past behind them and stop a killer before he claims another victim?
There is a monster on the loose, a serial killer murdering young women near Oklahoma City. On each corpse he writes his name in blood:
THE TIN MAN
But while the villain claims to be heartless, he’s not beyond making a mistake. This time he left his prey alive, and ex–homicide detective Nick Lassiter plans to use her to crack the case wide open. Yet, Ravyn Skyler is nothing like he expects. She remembers little of the crime, and for a victim she has a deep reserve of quiet strength. In her eyes he sees both helpless waif and merciless vigilante, in her kiss he tastes both passion and power. With a tale of a tin man, it only seems fair that there’s a witch. And this witch guards a secret that threatens not only their lives, but their souls.
A broken heart drove her away--a family tragedy brought her back.
After her parents' murder/suicide, Isabelle Connelly returns to her home town to settle their estate. But a year later, with her business concluded, Isabelle still hasn't left, even though she has every reason to. The townspeople shun her because of her family's history of mental instability, she hasn't gotten over her feelings for the man who shattered her heart, and now she's a suspect in a murder and mysterious house fire.
Someone is out to frame Isabelle for the crimes. Failing that, it appears they plan to make Isabelle their next victim.
