A Dead Red Heart (The Dead Red Mystery Series, Book 2) by RP Dahlke
Lalla Bains certainly doesn’t need any more distractions during the simmering summers in the San Joaquin Valley of California; her tight-wad, widowed father is now a born-again lady’s man, a disreputable crop-dusting competitor threatens her business, and last but not least, she worries whether the sultry redhead in the local police department is taking more than a professional interest in her honey, Sheriff Caleb Stone.
But when a homeless vet is stabbed and dies at her feet, Lalla Bains, Aero-Ag pilot and amateur sleuth, is determined to do a better investigation than he’s presently getting with the local police department. The only problem with that idea is that the killer has plans for this nosy sleuth.
