this is 2nd book in the author's series, re: Gemma Monroe, detective with the police in a small mountain town of Colorado.
A page turner; highly recommend. Good writing, characters that are believable and like-able.
Fascinating plot.
The 3rd book in the series is lost Lake, coming out in 2018.

On a cold dark night in February, as a blizzard shrieks through Cedar Valley, police officer and new mother Gemma Monroe responds to an anonymous report of a prowler at the local private high school, the Valley Academy. Gemma suspects the call was just a prank by a bored teenager. In the snow, however, lies the savaged body of a man whose presence in town was meant to be a secret. A disturbing message left by the killer promises more death to come. Nothing is at it seems in Cedar Valley, and stories, both fact and fiction, ensnare Gemma as her investigation moves from the halls of an elite academy to the forests that surround the town. Against a backdrop of bleak winter weather, stymied by those who would lie to protect what is dearest to them, Gemma hunts a ruthless killer before he can strike again. (Description edited from the publisher's description on the book's dust jacket.)

This is the second book in the Gemma Monroe series. It is a book that book readers like I commonly refer to as a page-turner. A Season to Lie is a book I could not put down. I kept on promising myself that I would read just one more chapter before I did the things I really needed to do, just one more chapter until I studied for a test, just one more chapter until I ran my errands, just one more chapter until I closed the book, turned out the lights, turned over, and went to sleep. Just one more chapter.

I liked the author's first book, Inherit the Bones. I thought it was very good. A Season to Lie is even better. One thing I like about the book is that the book is as much character driven as it is plot driven, and the characters are very interesting. All of them.

I'm very much looking forward to the next book in the Gemma Monroe series.
