Smoke over Owl Creek
Caren Hahn, author
Valerie Fisher came to Owl Creek looking for a fresh beginning. What she finds could tear the small town apart. After her husband's tragic death, Val returns to her childhood home with her seven-year old daughter, hoping to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. But the sleepy logging community isn't as safe as it once was. Wildfires rage in the hills and Val is convinced that someone is prowling around her property. She looks for help from Joel, an old high school friend who's distinguished himself as a local detective. Together Val and Joel are pulled into a dark tale of jealousy and murder as they uncover the truth behind the most infamous murder trial in Owl Creek's history. When they find a body in the woods near Val's house, one thing is clear: Someone has a secret they're willing to kill to protect.
