Joanna Caprice is the type of woman who takes her work seriously, and her new internship at the Lakeville Sheriff's Office is no exception. When a mystery involving a rivalry, a murderous lion, and a bunch of dead cows has the deputies scratching their heads, she is eager to prove her worth and is more determined than ever. After everything she risked to get here, she's not willing to let anything get in her way...
Then, she meets the first person of interest: Micah Decosta. He has a pattern of showing up in the wrong place at the wrong time...and an infuriating habit of getting under Joanna's skin. She knows getting too close will jeopardize her objectivity, but there's just something about him. She can tell he's keeping a secret, and she's dying to know what it is...but she has no idea how much her world will change after she finds out.
