Publisher's Summary

Homicide detective Mandi Murphy had seen enough bloodshed on the streets of Houston to last a lifetime. After a botched drug bust left a friend dead, she wanted out of the city. Peaceful little Sawmill Springs seemed like the perfect spot to start over. Six weeks on patrol proved the town to be as quiet and serene as she'd imagined.

When things soured between FBI agent Kayla Dixon and her lover, she was ready for a change from the fast-paced life she was living. Her father, the police chief in Sawmill Springs, offered her a job, and she decided a change of pace was just what she needed. Her wish for slow and peaceful didn't materialize, however, as mere hours after she started her first shift, a prominent citizen was gunned down.

The two women are thrust together to solve the murder and return Sawmill Springs to the sleepy small town the residents expect. As the investigation grows, so does their attraction. There's just one problem - Murphy thinks Kayla is straight. Kayla admits to a failed marriage when she was 18, and an ambiguous affair with another FBI agent convinces Murphy to steer clear of her. Kayla's innocent flirting is met with skepticism and doubt...and temptation. Another murder not only strengthens their bond as partners but has them fighting to escape the clutches of a murderer. No longer able to ignore the budding attraction between them, they must decide if they are willing to start over...this time, together.

    Story
    "Kind of unbelievable"
    Would you listen to Sawmill Springs again? Why?

    Good characters, well performed, 4/5th of the way through it just got unbelievable. It's a cop drama and most of the book flows well but...spoiler alert!!!...I just can't imagine letting my father go alone to deal with a homicidal maniac, even if it is his brother. And I can't imagine, with my father's life in danger, that I Could, never mind would, wake a few hours later sleeping next to my pending lover and choose to have sex rather than check on my father. It just got sloppy towards the end. Yes, her father is the chief of police. Yes, her father is a strong character but really? Not a snowballs chance in hell I'd let him go on his own.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Gerri Hill? Why or why not?

    I usually love Gerri Hill's books. She typically has me laughing out loud and thoroughly enjoying the ride.


    Which character – as performed by Nicol Zanzarella – was your favorite?

    Murphy is done well but the Chief of Police is brilliant; a great character brought to life in full color in Nicol Zanzarella's performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.

    "fantastic Story with an amazing Narrator."

    I loved every moment of this book.
    it had a great plot, a really good twist, a sweet romance that ended a very stressful man chase. the characters were easy to like and follow as they worked hard to solve 4 murders.
    This book is another example of Gerri Hills amazing writing skills.
    But this book.. you won't be disappointed.

    "Decent story, occasionally cringeworthy, fine narr"

    -Story was fairly well-written
    -had some cringe-y cliched moments
    -had a sex scene that came out of the left field
    -characters were not Mary Sues (hooray)


    - narrator had a pleasant voice
    - disliked voice she used for Murphy, but wasn't terrible to listen to, just not what I envisioned
    - seemed to relish all the scenes
    - sometimes was a little slow to read, but probably because was narrating dialogue with heavy southern drawl.

    "Great experience..."

    This story was funny, sexy and narrated perfectly. I always like to read the books and then listen to the audiobook afterwards, on both accounts this was a great choice for me indeed.

    "Best book Gerri Hill has written Yet!"

    Sawmill Springs is the of two woman with. Strong photo ice or FBI background s each trying to escape to small town living, because of things like failed relationship to other officers on their team or stuff like that.
    Then the unthinkable happens in Sawmill Springs, a murder! And the two most experienced officers get put on the case. Our young transfer from Dallas homicide and the daughter of the sheriff and also an ex FBI agent. And the only two female gay officers on staff.
    As murders and mysteries progress so does there attraction and flirting. Just one problem; Dallas believes the chief's daughter is straight and therefore untouchable, still the attraction wins out, to spike the background of a deadly killer on the loose. It comes down to trust and good police work in this very exciting mystery/ romance novel that is the best one yet, from Gerri Hill: Who also brought us high caliber books like Hunter+s Way, Target, Devil's Highway just to name a few.

    "Another great listen!"

    I do love Gerri Hill's books! Nicol Zanzarella is a fantastic narrator. The story is great. I love the confusion created by the characters' assumptions of each other's motives and self labels. It's easy to relate to her characters. And, Nicol Zanzarella's narration brings out the subtle dry humor. Bravo!!!
