Shattered (The Southern Comfort Series/Dahlonega Trilogy Book 1)
Lisa Clark O'Neill, author
Eighteen years ago, Lucy Flannery’s young life was shattered when her mother and little brother were murdered – a crime made all the more heartbreaking by the fact that the killer was her father. However, recently uncovered evidence proves that her father was wrongfully convicted. Reeling from this revelation, Lucy comes back to her hometown, both terrified and desperate to reconnect with the father whom she’d rejected. Trespassing at her childhood home, Lucy finds herself facing down the county sheriff, Ben Paulson, who is as intrigued by this prodigal daughter as he is horrified by the legal misconduct which resulted in her father’s conviction all those years ago. And when things start to happen to Lucy, things which suggest that someone may not want her back in Dahlonega, Ben realizes that this professionally problematic attraction is the least of their worries.
