Corey Curtis and Thayer Reynolds, now living together, are more than happy to put the days of their turbulent courtship behind them, trading hospital rooms and jail cells for quiet nights in front of a crackling fire. With the holidays upon them they are looking forward to celebrating with friends and family, intimate moments alone, and festive surprises.
Surprise! Nothing says Christmas like a frozen body and Corey must defrost one in order to close out her next case. The discovery of the deceased’s possible connection to Thayer inflames the still healing wounds of their recent trauma and sends them both reeling back into a world of uncertainty and turmoil.
Their quiet winter turns heated when Thayer makes questionable decisions in an effort to regain her peace of mind and Corey becomes the voice of reason. Despite her misgivings Corey agrees to help Thayer chase the shadows from her rattled confidence by nosing around another investigation which may or may not be connected to the death of a prominent member of the city.
With her best friend in tow and the police not far behind, Corey ends up in the unlikeliest of places—a church. Along the way hate and violence erupt, and corruption abounds, but from the ashes new relationships are kindled and even the darkest moments are no match for Corey and Thayer’s love.
Zero Chill is the third Curtis and Reynolds Misadventure.
