10/9/13 ** I thoroughly enjoyed this second mystery about protagonist Josie Gray, Chief of Police in her small Texas town. In this mystery there are layers on layers, just as there would be in real life. The weather and feet of rain doesn't stop so that Josie and her police force of 2 others can investigate the strange death of one of the townspeople. Instead, they have to put the investigation on hold to do emergency evacuations and prepare a nuclear facility for flash floods and mud slides. Also, there are hints that there may be a new love interest in the forthcoming third book. I look forward with pleasure to the release.
