In Unspeakable, by Laura Griffin, Elaina McCord’s dream of being an FBI profiler is in jeopardy with her first case–investigating a string of murders near a Texas beach resort. The victims, all young women, were drugged and brutally murdered, their bodies abandoned in desolate marshland. Elaina’s hunch–met with disbelief by local police–is that these are only the latest offerings from a serial killer who has been perfecting his art for years, growing bolder and more cunning with each strike.
In Ann Voss Peterson’s latest, A Rancher’s Brand of Justice, rugged Rancher Nick Raymond didn’t take orders from anybody. He had finally been reunited with his son, and he was not about to bring the boy back to the city where he’d witnessed a murder.
Investigator Melissa Anderson was just doing her job, but the cowboy wasn’t making it easier…and neither was the attraction building between them.
I love research.
I think this love of research stems from my tendency to procrastinate. In school, I was really good at cramming at the last minute–back then, it was hitting the library the day before a major paper was due, reading everything I could on the subject, then writing all night. The last-minute projects inevitably garnered me a B+ or A- (which, had I spent more time researching, editing, and revising would have been an A–but we work we our natural talents, right?)
