Inherit the Bones is the first book in the Detective Gemma Monroe series of books. She is a detective in a small Colorado town called Cedar Valley. Despite the nature of the small town, it is filled with secrets and lies – lies that have been uncovered by someone. That person has now been murdered and created an investigation for Gemma Monroe. The investigation takes her to some interesting places, from the richest homes in the town to the seedy area that the traveling circus lives in. She’s six month pregnant on this case, but she’ll go anywhere and do anything to uncover the truth about this case.

Gemma returns in A Season to Lie. It’s a cold February night when Gemma takes an anonymous report of a prowler near the high school and investigates. She thinks it’s most likely a prank, but that thought goes away when she finds the body of a man. There is a note left behind by the killer that reads “This is only the beginning…” and Gemma has a case of a potential serial killer on her hands.
