Sawmill Springs

by Gerri Hill

Homicide detective Mandi Murphy had seen enough bloodshed on the streets of Houston to last a lifetime. After a botched drug bust left a friend dead, she wanted out of the city. Peaceful little Sawmill Springs seemed like the perfect spot to start over. Six weeks on patrol proved the town to be as quiet and serene as she’d imagined.

When things soured between FBI agent Kayla Dixon and her lover, she was ready for a change from the fast paced life she was living. Her father, the Police Chief in Sawmill Springs, offered her a job and she decided a change of pace was just what she needed. Her wish for slow and peaceful didn’t materialize, however, as mere hours after she starts her first shift, a prominent citizen is gunned down.

The two women are thrust together to solve the murder and return Sawmill Springs to the sleepy small town the residents expect. As the investigation grows, so does their attraction. There’s just one problem—Murphy thinks Kayla is straight. Kayla admits to a failed marriage when she was eighteen and an ambiguous affair with another FBI agent convinces Murphy to steer clear of her. Kayla’s innocent flirting is met with skepticism and doubt…and temptation.

Another murder not only strengthens their bond as partners but has them fighting to escape the clutches of a murderer. No longer able to ignore the budding attraction between them, they must decide if they are willing to start over…this time, together.

Lex Kent's Reviews - I really enjoyed this book. It reminded me of what I consider a "classic" Hill book. You are instantly drawn into the story, and don't want to put the book down. The pacing of this book really works. I don't know if Hill has plans to make this a series, but for me it screams for one. I loved the small town setting, with gossipy side characters. If you are a fan of Hill, or enjoy books with cops, don't pass this up. It's a good read, and I really enjoyed it.

Gaby's Reviews - ...the plot has interesting twists and turns that keeps the reader hooked. The romance part is skillfully written with funny dialogues and good chemistry.

    I would have to say like all Gerri Hill books you won’t be disappointed. Yes you know from the start that Mandi Murphy(please just Murphy) and Kayla Dixon get together. What you don’t know is how many twists and turns it takes to get there. It’s years since there has been a murder in Sawmill Springs. The police chief is Kayla’s father, a good honest man but when it comes to handling murder’s in his small town, has to rely on new police member Murphy and Kayla to investigate. Murphy used to be a Homicide detective in Houston. Kayla has just quit the FBI. A very nice read.

    These characters were keepers. I loved Murphy and Kayla right off the bat. The chemistry between them was evident and never felt forced to me. I was into the crime aspect of the story but was disappointed with the missing details to tie up the case at the end. Made it seem like there could be a sequel. I would love follow up stories with these characters. This could be a new series for sure!
