A Sticky Inheritance

by Emily James


Knowing the truth is sometimes worse than believing the lie.

Especially when murder is involved.

When Nicole inherits her uncle’s maple syrup farm, she thinks it’s time to leave her career as a criminal defense attorney behind for a life that allows her to stay far away from murderers and liars.

For half a day at least.

Her uncle’s suicide looks like it wasn’t a suicide at all.

The local police chief doesn’t want to reopen the case. Murder’s bad for business in a tourist town, after all. The handsome county medical examiner—who’s exactly her type and all wrong for her—is willing to help. But that means returning to the world of justice that Nicole hoped to leave behind forever and investigating a murderer who already knows who she is.

And that she’s hunting for him.

When the truth’s a sticky thing, it’s hard to know what’s worth risking your life for.
