She's on a killer vacation.
Finding one dead body is unlucky.
Finding two means you’re Bella Bree MacGowan.
Most people can relax by an idyllic riverside without fishing a dead body out of the water; Bree MacGowan is not most people. And as luck would have it, it's not just any old corpse she's tripped over this time. It's the late wife of Senator R. Carl Wallace, a paragon of upstanding American citizenship to anyone who looks… unless they look too closely. Which is, of course, exactly what Bree does, and what she finds is definitely more trouble than she bargained for.
Where power and murder collide, danger follows, and Bree soon finds herself the target of break-ins, vandalism and kidnapping, all at the hands of the dubious Senator who insists that she identify two criminals she’s never seen before as the people who killed his wife. Now Bree has to save herself and the ones she loves from a conspiracy where the bad guys look good, the good guys look bad, and nothing is as it seems…

I was born in Sacramento and grew up on a cattle ranch about half an hour north. I love that region of the country with all my heart, but that didn't stop me from making changes where I needed to. Story is everything, at least when you write them for a living.
One of my clearest memories as sixteen year old was watching the speedometer spike at 125 mph while riding in a car across the Forest Hill Bridge. My mother would have had a fit if she had known.
I do apologize to the proud citizens of that part of California for the changes to their landscape.
My apologies to the citizens of the foothill communities north of Sacramento for changing the character and landmarks of your towns to suit my needs.
