Wildfires swept across California wine country in 2017, destroying thousands of homes and businesses and killing dozens of people. Law school grad and single mother Tara Rezeck finds herself in the middle of the catastrophe. She has to evacuate with the rest of of the staff of Sonoma’s most award-winning winery. When she returns, she finds her employer’s body in the ashes.
The question that challenges her brains and her legal training is: was it an accident? Or was his body burned to hide evidence of murder?
Available on Amazon
“Very realistic storyline, quite a ride!”
Five Star Review on Amazon by Diane G
Great start to a new series. Really looking forward to finding out more about Tara and her new job. It starts out at a run, and keeps you hooked til the end. Did not figure it out and a twist at the end. Was her boss murdered or an accident? Follow along as Tara figures it out.
Based on the real wildfires in Northern CA last Oct.2017.Since I live in the area, I have been to these very places he mentioned, very realistic and I felt like I was there with Tara.
