A beautiful reporter and a charming rancher are caught in a web of mayhem, murder…and lust.

Reporter Sawyer Cahill returns home to Cheyenne, Wyoming to report for the local station. But leaving behind the coverage of the gangland murders of San Antonio only lands her smack in the middle of the ritualistic animal mutilations. Harassed and threatened by the  freak behind the bizarre murders, Sawyer plunges into her investigation, reaping the attentions of two local ranchers.

Local rancher, Jake Spooner, tangles with a tug of war relationship with Sawyer. Tormented between his smoldering desire for Sawyer and his wish to keep her safe, their passion flames in a mountain snow storm.

In Winterkill, Sawyer Cahill, a reporter, has returned home to report about ritualistic animal mutilations that have happened all over her hometown in Cheyenne, Wyoming. While Sawyer focuses on reporting the mutilations, her investigations brings her to local rancher, Jake Spooner. In the style of a murder mystery – although it involves cattle, rather than people – the reader follows Sawyer and Jake as they try to find out who is behind the cattle mutilation, and why this freak seems interested in Sawyer.

The murder mystery is the background story for the romantic plot, and it serves it well. Both the mystery and romance are intriguing. I definitely rooted for Jake and Sawyer. The romance was light though, and it didn’t take long for both characters to fall in love. It wasn’t too fast, but they didn’t really take their time either.

Overall, an enjoyable, well-written story ideal for fans of mysteries with a dash of romance (or romance stories with a dash of mystery, whatever you prefer).
