Congratulations, Eva Ridenour, writing as Elizabeth Butler, on your successful launch of Happy New Year, Emily Rose!
After the holidays, Emily Rose Roberts is the first to arrive at the university to catch up on the stack of mail she knows will be waiting. She unlocks the door to discover the murdered body of Professor Stuart McBain in front of the mailboxes. Victor Morales is the head detective in the local police department. He already has more cold cases than he wants, and McBain’s murder could be another unsolved crime. No matter what anyone says, Vic can’t imagine that petite Emily Rose, their only suspect, could be the killer. Emily Rose could have been attracted to Vic if she hadn’t sworn off men. Besides, she carefully guards a secret she doesn’t want the detective to uncover. When a second murder has ties to Emily Rose, Vic has to decide whether he is falling in love with a murderer or a potential victim. He does know he must find the killer before anyone else dies.
