There is an old saying that good friends will help you move; best friends will help you move the body. That is what these three women are to Jessica McConnell. They’re like an old pair of blue jeans, full of holes and not always appropriate, but a perfect fit. When their getaway takes a tragic turn Jess finds one of her friend murdered in her room. Then, one-by-one, her friends are killed while the police department’s one detective, Dan McCoy, continue to investigate her as suspect number one. From the Smoky Mountains to the gritty streets of D.C., Jess and detective Dan McCoy follow clues that reveal damning evidence of a powerful politician and a killer who continues to be far too close.
Dan McCoy grew up in Townsend, just outside of Gatlinburg, Tennessee and is proud to be a sixth generation Appalachian. Although the heir to a Moonshine legacy, he took a different road and is the detective in charge for the murders of three women in a five-star hotel. His prime suspect hand delivered, Ms. Jessica McConnell continues to state her innocence. He will break her and all the pieces will fit like a child’s puzzle. However, a second body is discovered and she had him as an alibi, he must overcome mistrust of outsiders to see beyond circumstantial evidence. Is this feigned innocence or is she truly a victim. When a third woman is attacked and near death, he whisks Jess deep within the Smoky Mountains, his backyard until they are forced to follow a trail of clues from to the gritty streets of DC where her instincts are paramount to his skill set. They must work together to stop a powerfully connected Senator and a killer who will stop at nothing to cover up evidence against him.
Journey with Jess as she discovers a strength she never knew she had and a man she never thought she’d get.
