Murder in the Mountains

Could grief and devastation be imprinted on DNA and passed down through generations? Sophie Cahill believes it’s the reason for her cautious heart. A personal loss confirms her conviction that love is not worth the risk. She throws herself into her new career as Activities Director for the Covenant Falls, Colorado Community House. It allows her to live in her hometown, and educate people about her family’s tragic past and its part in Covenant Falls’ destiny. But working in her hometown keeps her in close contact with Zachary Flint. Her resistance to him failed briefly in high school, but now she guards her walls carefully. Zach plants himself firmly in her sphere, and Sophie is dismayed to realize that beneath his bad boy veneer, he’s become a responsible business owner. How can she resist that combination? She gives it her best shot, as a savage attack and sabotage endanger her plans for Covenant Falls’ First Annual Founders Day. Will her dream job be the only thing she loses? Or will the nineteenth century cast a shadow over the twenty-first and take her life as well? 


 Excellent!! I didn't want to put it down! I am so very ready for the next novel from this author.

 Lisa is a gifted writer and draws the reader into her story. I loved how well she describes settings and people. The book kept me in suspense until the very end. It was a great mystery read with a love story for a sweet topping. I hope Lisa will have more to come.
