Stormwatch Series & Frozen Ground (Stormwatch #1) by Debra Webb

Frozen Ground Description: 

Abbey Gray, a NYT bestselling suspense author, is burned out. She needs time away from the madness of deadlines and personal appearances as well as her big city life in New York. Returning to her small hometown in Montana to hide herself away, she attempts to dive into her next novel. Abbey hopes the solitude will kickstart her muse but a murder next door gets in the way. The murder stirs painful memories from the past of another murder--Abbey's mother. Can the eerily similar details of her neighbor's murder help Abbey remember the truth about the past before she becomes the next victim? With the storm charging toward her hometown, there is no escaping what's coming. 

Sheriff Garrett Gilmore has known Abbey and her family his entire life. In truth, he’s probably been waiting for her to come back, knowing it likely wouldn’t happen or maybe he just has commitment issues. He can’t worry about that at the moment, he has a homicide to solve and a murderer to catch, all with the storm of the century bearing down on Montana. Survival is all that matters. 

EXCERPT 

Standing in the middle of a homicide scene was the last thing Sheriff Garrett Gilmore wanted to be doing on a Sunday morning—any morning, for that matter. Yet, here he was. 

Garrett surveyed the backyard where Dottie Hansen lay prone on the cold ground not a half dozen yards from her back door. Dark crimson stained her ruffled pink dress. Strangely it didn’t appear to have run down the sides and puddled on the snow beneath her. Maybe there was more under the body, but he’d have to wait until the coroner arrived to check it out. Her bare feet were blue, as much from the fact that blood no longer flowed freely through her veins as the freezing temperature. He shook his head. Who the hell would do something like this to a woman closer to seventy than sixty? Dottie had lived in Park County her whole life. She baked for the church fundraisers. Taught elementary school for nearly four decades before retiring. 

It didn’t make one lick of sense. 

Two crime scene techs took photos and documented the scene. Evidence would be collected. The coroner was on his way. Three of Garrett’s deputies were searching the yard and the tree line, while two others scoured the house. So far they’d found no reason to suspect anything had been taken from inside the house—not even the cash in Mrs. Hansen’s handbag was missing—which left them without a clear motive for this brutal act.
