A trip to America to visit her best friend, Quincy, is just what Tomi Kanai needs to break away from her parents’ rigid rules. Stumbling across a dead body on her first day in Hickory Hills turns her dream trip into a nightmare. As Tomi navigates the choppy waters of life in America, the killer is watching and has zeroed in on his next target—Tomi.
P.R. Montgomery has his life mapped out—a law degree, prestigious job, plenty of money, and marriage, someday. But when he finds his mentor murdered, P.R. is torn between his charted path and a risky detour with Tomi. Making the wrong decision will put Tomi’s life in peril.
As the killer closes in, Tomi has to draw on her new-found freedom and inner strength, but will that be enough to save her?
Friends Together, a romantic suspense, is book two in the Hickory Hills series. Friends Forever, book one, was selected as a finalist for the 2017 Nancy Pearl fiction award by the Pacific Northwest Literary Association in Seattle, Washington.
