I have read most books by Gerri Hill and enjoyed nearly all of them. Ms. Hill is a skilful writer so I was looking forward to reading this book. I’m glad I did.
Sawmill Springs is a light mystery / romance that happens in a fictional little town mentioned in the book title. The main characters are Murphy, a former Houston police detective, the epitome of dark, tall and mysterious, and beautiful blonde Kayla, an allegedly straight ex FBI agent. They meet in their new jobs as officers at the Sawmill Springs police department both looking for a quiet uneventful service. When the murders start, they realise that is not going to happen and as the investigation progresses so does their mutual attraction.
Despite this is not a fast paced, page-turner thriller, the plot has interesting twists and turns that keeps the reader hooked. The romance part is skillfully written with funny dialogues and good chemistry.
Overall, an entertaining light read, Gerri Hill fans won’t be disappointed. 4 stars.
