Dangerous Places

Himmel River Press

Vanished Without a Trace

 

When teenager Heather Young disappeared from the small town of Himmel, Wisconsin everyone believed her boyfriend had killed her—though her body was never found. Twenty years later, his little sister Sammy returns to town. She begs her old friend, true crime writer Leah Nash, to prove her brother Eric isn’t a murderer.

 

But Sammy has no new evidence, and her brother doesn’t want Leah’s help. Leah says no—but she can’t help feeling guilty about it.  That feeling gets much worse when Sammy is killed in a suspicious car accident. That’s when the independent, irreverent, unstoppable Leah takes up her cause. Her investigation takes her to some dark and dangerous places, and the truth she finds has an unexpected and shattering impact on her own life.

 

Fans of mysteries featuring strong female protagonists will enjoy following Leah Nash as she navigates storylines full of twists and turns. The series combines the familiar pleasures of a small-town cozy—a cast of recurring characters, a touch of romance, and total immersion in an imaginary small-town setting—with the sharper dialogue and edgier plot of a mystery thriller. 

 

PRAISE FOR DANGEROUS PLACES

 

“The latest installment of Leah Nash’s adventures was my first choice to read on a dismal winter day. The story didn’t disappoint. Leah is as entertaining as ever. I love her indomitable spirit.”

 

“Interesting plot and character development. I've enjoyed following Leah as she has fine-tuned her investigative strategies and relationships throughout the series. This one is my favorite so far. Can't wait for the next book!”

 

“Oh, how I have come to love these characters! This 3rd in series book is great on its own, but even better having read the previous two in the series.”

 

“Well, if you're not in it by now, you're not paying attention. With each new book, you get drawn further into Himmel, Wisconsin and Leah Nash and her adventures. You can empathize with most of the characters. I'm more hooked now, and am salivating for her next book.”
