Tangled Roots

A dead beautician. A student on the run. And a teacher sleuth back in action.

For Kendra Clayton, life is good—for about five minutes. Then Detective Trish Harmon of the Willow, Ohio, police department shows up at her class looking for Kendra’s favorite student, a troubled young man named Timmy who has been straightening out his life.

A pretty local beautician is dead, and Timmy is suspect number one. When he shows up at her apartment begging for help, Kendra finds herself back on the road to trouble, trying to find the real killer, stepping over the line from a nice safe life into danger, and getting tangled in the deadly roots of desire.
