Meeting over Murder
The Lessons in Murder Series, Book 1
By Edale Lane
Two women, a dead teen, and a cruel killer at large…
Jenna Ferrari is a tough-to-the-bone homicide detective with no patience for stupidity and an Italian’s penchant for displays of emotion. While she excels at catching criminals, she continues to strike out at relationships. At thirty-two, she wonders if she’ll ever find the right woman.
A brilliant, creative college literature professor, Miranda McLeod is respected by her peers and loved by her students. After years of walking an ambiguous line, she wants to come out but doesn’t know how.
When the two meet over the case of a murder on campus, could they have both found what they’ve been looking for, or will the unknown killer on the loose foil their chances for romance?
This is the first in a contemporary sapphic crime-solving series of novellas set in Roanoke, VA. Enjoy the sweet romance, follow the action, see if you can solve the mystery first, and discover the biggest enigma of all lies in the human heart.
