A Life for a Life by Lynda McDaniel

Book 1 in the Appalachian Mountain Mysteries series

The past is the past, right? Not for Della Kincaid. After decades as a crime reporter in Washington, D.C., Della thinks she's settling in a quiet, idyllic town in the N.C. mountains … but a walk in the wilderness changes everything.

Abit Bradshaw yearns for acceptance. He's different from the Laurel Falls townspeople and spends long days alone.

These two unlikely partners team up to prove the sheriff wrong when he takes the easy way out and declares the death a suicide. As they travel through Western North Carolina, they encounter a fascinating cast of characters, including the best one of all—the lush natural setting of the mountains.

Will they find the killer before they become the next victims?

Can they make peace with their own pasts?

You'll love this suspenseful mystery because who doesn't dream of second chances?
