Title: Tracks of Her Tears
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.

What an interesting suspense/thriller novella. I have to admit that I was expecting a little more romance, but I was so caught up in the “thriller” aspect, that I didn’t really care in the long run.
Seth is a homicide detective who is trying to work on his marriage, which has been stressful, mainly due to work. His wife, Carly, is a social worker and has made the commitment to work less hours, focusing on her marriage to Seth. The stress in their marriage is put to the test when a new homicide case forces both of them to step up and work extra hours.
Stumbling upon the body of his brother-in-law’s girlfriend wasn’t what Seth was expecting when he got the homicide call in the morning. But realizing the brother-in-law was missing was down right chilling, realizing he had to tell his wife and family was difficult.
Although while reading this you could put pieces together, there were enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end. Short and suspenseful, I’m looking forward to the next one, because yes, there is unfinished business.
