Together, they work to unravel the mystery, while the killer works to keep the secrets buried – forever.

Legacy of Lies by Jill Elizabeth Nelson is a standalone title. Evidence from a decades-old murder is the last thing Nicole Keller-Mattson expected to discover in her grandmother’s backyard. The finger-pointing and accusations aimed at her family were easier to predict. Everyone in Ellendale is eager to blame the Kellers – but after an attack leaves Nicole’s grandmother in a coma, only Nicole can clear the family name. With the assistance of police chief Rich Hendricks, she stands a chance of solving the mystery… if she’s willing to accept Rich’s help. Nicole lost her husband in the line of duty—trusting another cop is too painful. But not trusting Rich could be deadly.
