Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Secrets and lies can't stay buried forever in Cedar Valley . . . In the summer, hikers and campers pack the small Colorado town's meadows and fields. And in the winter, skiers and snowboarders take over the mountains. Season by season, year after year, time passes and the lies, like the aspens and evergreens that surround the town, take root and spread deep.

"Six-months pregnant, with a partner she can't trust and colleagues who know more than they're saying, Detective Gemma Monroe tracks a killer who will stop at nothing to keep the secrets buried in Cedar Valley, Colorado"-- Provided by publisher.

Library Journal Review

Detective Gemma Monroe works for a small-town police department in Colorado. Being a by-the-book cop, staying on task is usually not a problem, but these days, six months pregnant, she struggles with food cravings, finding a uniform that fits, getting enough sleep, and keeping track of her fiancé, who is on his second and last chance, after having previously betrayed her. Detective Monroe's current case--a gruesome, seemingly random murder--presents many questions and few answers. The victim worked for a traveling circus, but when it's revealed that he was the mayor's son, who was presumed dead three years before in a hiking accident, Gemma finds she has more local suspects than she knows what to do with. Gemma is haunted by dreams of an unsolved, decades-old murder of two boys, and she hopes to unmask their killer. Littlejohn launches the series with a typical assortment of personal and professional intrigue, firmly in step with the genre. It goes wrong, however, in the last 30 pages of the book. A random comment by a character unknown throughout the book allows Gemma to catch her current-day killer and connect it to her cold case. Narrator Harper Landry does a competent job in voicing all characters, both male and female. VERDICT An optional purchase for libraries with very large mystery collections.--Laura Brosie, St. Charles City-Cty. Lib., MO.
