Sawmill Springs by Gerri HillSawmill Springs by Gerri Hill is awesome.

Mandi Murphy is the new cop at the Sawmill Springs police department. A former homicide detective, Murphy has seen more than enough horror to last her a lifetime and this small town is less than exciting, which is just what she needed.

When former FBI agent Kayla Dixon arrives in Sawmill Springs to accept a job in the police department (that her father runs) she is expecting a nice change of pace.

The women meet there and there is an instant attraction but they don’t have time to do anything much more than greet one another before a prominent citizen is gunned down.

As the only cops with any real experience in solving murder cases, Murphy and Kayla are thrust into a partnership that could become tense from all the sexual tension.

And when they find another murder victim it becomes clear that they are racing against the clock to stop the killer before the body count increases.

Why Gerri Hill Rocks My World

Gerri Hill is one of my favorite authors in the sector. You never know what you are going to get from her in terms of the type of story and that excites me. I love that she will cross from a sweet romance to a dramatic romance into a horror and sprinkle in some police investigative stories too.

And while you never know what story you will get you do know that you will get high-quality writing, excellent dialogue, interesting events and a really captivating romance.

The Narration

Nicol Zanzarella is fast becoming one of my favorite narrators. She did a great job of narrating this one.

This is such a great story. The twists and turns had me captivated. The side characters were as strong as the main characters and my heart rate definitely increased with the romance.

I adored the main characters and want to see them in loads of upcoming books.

Go get this audiobook if you love a good detective story with a sweet romance.

Also – women in uniform – need I say more?

Excerpt from Sawmill Springs by Gerri Hill

She waited as two officers came in. Tim Beckman looked as familiar as always, his bushy mustache hiding his upper lip. The woman next to him, however, nearly took her breath away. She was the same height as Tim but much leaner. Dark hair, cut in layers, feathered around her face, just brushing the collar of her uniform. As dark eyes met hers, she had an almost overwhelming itch to brush away the hair that hid the woman’s eyebrows. Surely to God this wasn’t the woman her father had hired. Surely to God this wasn’t Murphy. No. She was supposed to be older. She was supposed to be overweight. She was supposed to be ugly.

“Well, hey there, Kayla. Didn’t expect to see you today,” Tim said with a hesitant smile. He jerked a thumb at the woman. “This here is Murphy. She just finished a six-week tour with me.”

Kayla stared at the woman, finally noticing that she was holding her hand out. Kayla reached out and clasped hands with her briefly.

“Nice to meet you,” she said.

The woman paused an almost awkward beat before replying. “Yes. Same here.”
