The Snowman Killer
by Wendy Meadows
Sarah Garland, a retired homicide detective who’s gone through a painful divorce, seems to have found her peace at last, in the sleepy (and freezing) small town of Snow Falls, Alaska. What she didn’t expect, was for her past life to catch up with her. Or, for her new life as a mystery writer to inspire a deadly killer to target her.
Yet, when the killer leaves a frightening clue-a creepy snowman, donning a leather jacket and eating a peppermint candy cane, left in front of her cabin-Sarah begins to suspect Conrad Spencer, the new detective in town, who is pursuing a murderer of his own. Soon, it becomes obvious that the sleuths would have to join forces, in order to catch the killer.
Sarah and Conrad must put their tragic pasts behind them and find out who’s after her…before the trail becomes frozen.
