Despite being chronically late, occasionally disheveled and a tad disorganized, Dixie Knight is one of the top private investigators in the country, and when a young woman goes missing in the small, Southern town of Devil’s Den, Dixie takes the case. She expected it to be another ordinary missing person case—until Lizzie Meyers is found naked and beaten to death at a local, seedy motel. 

While visiting relatives on his two-week leave, Marine Liam Cash bumps into Dixie at the local bar, and his attraction to her is immediate. When Liam connects Dixie’s current case to two unsolved murders in his hometown, he steps in to help find the killer, and keep her safe, whether Dixie wants him to or not. 

After another woman is found brutally beaten, Dixie turns the town upside down trying to solve the mystery—could it be the rumored witch that lives in the mountains; the rich, neurotic doctor’s wife; or the perky, blond receptionist at the local medical clinic? 

Time is running out and Dixie knows she has to put the pieces of the puzzle together before another body turns cold in Devil’s Den.


Dixie Knight works with her sibling at Black Rose investigation as a PI (family company). She is very good at what she does. She get hired to find a missing woman. Even though it look like ordinary missing person care, it transforms into something a lot worse.

I love the mystery and PI work she did, she is very good at her job and I loved seeing her search clues. I like the format, the length was just perfect. :) It keep me glues to the page from the start to finish. And I really look forward to read more in the series.

One I didn't like, was the romance, I think it needed more time

It's one of those book that would be perfect for a movie. :)

Happy reading,
