Publisher's Summary

She’s a feisty, ex-US Marshal, he’s a cranky veteran detective, and together, they'll make one hell of a team in the sweltering, mosquito-filled swamps of Florida.
Skylar Reid has spent her entire career hunting down fugitives as part of the country’s most elite task force. After losing her fiance in a tragedy six-months prior, it sent her world into a spin and caused her superiors to slam the brakes on. Now, with the big city in the rear-view mirror and the quiet Panhandle town of Carrabelle in her sights, Skylar takes a position as an investigator for the local sheriffs office and partners with an aging detective.
Within days, Skylar is at odds with the powers at be when the dead body of the chief medical examiner is pulled from a mosquito-filled swamp and deemed a suicide, but she's not convinced. Though quick to dismiss her as a loose cannon, her partner soon agrees when the investigation takes a dangerous turn in a new direction. But can she prove it was murder?
Everyone thinks the sunshine state is beautiful. What if it's not?

Good Story

Dead Calm is a good story that pulled me in. Typically I listen to romances with a few murder mystery or action stories thrown in for variety. It took me a while to warm up to the narrator, but after a short while I thought she did a good performance (3.5 stars) with the various characters. I think I prefer a more dominant voice for police/thriller story. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I thought the author did great with the twists in the story.
