What to expect

Hailey Dean is in trouble again—and this time it could be deadly.

Hailey Dean, the prosecutor who never lost a case, heads to Savannah as an expert witness on the sensational Julie Love Adams murder trial, but she soon finds herself embroiled in a mystery and an unexpected love affair.

At the baggage claim, Hailey is greeted by the handsome Lieutenant Chase Billings. On their way to her hotel, they hear an all-points bulletin for a murder that has just been committed. When they race to the scene, they find Alton Turner, a courthouse sheriff known for being as neat as a pin. Only he’s a hot mess now, lying sprawled in a pool of blood, severed in half by a garage door.

Never one to mind her own business, Hailey jump-starts Turner’s murder investigation while juggling the Julie Love trial. The timing of the trial and murder could be a coincidence, but everyone knows there is no such thing in criminal law.

Next, Elle Odom, a gorgeous clerk, is poisoned at the courthouse cafeteria coffee bar. Then the police technician who helped find the missing handbag that contained Elle’s life-saving epinephrine autoinjector turns into alligator bait at an amusement park. And that’s just the beginning.

With Lieutenant Billings falling hard for Hailey, she must dig deeper to find a killer with a very mysterious agenda—knowing full well that the next murder victim may very well be herself.
