SCENE OF THE CRIME: MYSTIC LAKE
SCENE OF THE CRIME: MYSTIC LAKE (4.5) by Carla Cassidy: FBI agent Amberly Nightsong came to Mystic Lake to solve three murders, but soon she suspects that she’s the real reason a serial killer is stalking the women of the quaint tourist town. Sheriff Cole Caldwell isn’t thrilled to be working with the feds, as he blames their red tape for his wife’s death, but beautiful, down-to-earth Amberly is getting to him, big time. As the body count rises and clues become scarce, threats against Amberly increase and Cole is determined to keep Amberly safe and find the monster who has been claiming young women’s lives, leaving nothing but a cheaply made dreamcatcher hanging over the dump sites. Cassidy blends ancient tradition with modern forensic procedures, Native American superstition and a cop’s insights to produce a finely honed thriller wrapped around a charming romance.
