Sheriff Luke Hayden knows Talipatche isn’t your typical county–the rye crops are poisonous, spiders fly, and folks say a dead woman walks the cornfields at night. Luke wants to protect his citizens; he’s just running out of citizens to protect.

Megan Moreno needs a break from seven years of bad luck with the LAPD. A small sheriff’s department in Colorado sounds like the perfect place to recover, but all too soon, she discovers that bad things don’t just happen in LA. They happen everywhere.

Someone is plotting to kill the most hated woman in town. As suspicious incidents pile up, a storm that just won’t leave blows into town, forcing Luke and Megan to shove aside the unexpected attraction between them and focus on saving Talipatche–in more ways than one.

If they fail, the aftermath truly could be haunting. For everyone.
