When murder and love collide, does duty trump one's heart?
Lilah Michaels remembers little of her mother's suicide following a violent assault during a robbery at their home over twenty years ago. But it's the only home she's ever known. Now they're in danger of losing the family property, and she's pinned her hopes on hosting weddings at the winery to appease the bank and buy them some time. Until a shocking discovery changes everything.
Sergeant Finn Kelly desperately needs a break after a tough assignment. All he wants is to catch up with his friends in Trinket Bay as they prepare for their wedding. At Hidden Gem Winery, he finds a yearned-for sense of peace. Then he meets the charming woman who's hosting the nuptials, and his thoughts turn toward romance.
Finn puts those amorous notions on hold when he and his service dog find human remains on the property. Painful memories and an unsolved mystery come to light. It's clear someone wants to keep the past a secret, and they'll do anything to make sure the truth stays buried.
Is Lilah as innocent as she seems? Or is she part of the conspiracy? And will Finn lose more than his heart in his quest to discover the truth?
An Ear to the Ground is a contemporary romantic suspense novel set in the fictional town of Trinket Bay in South Western Australia.
