With grit, courage and dogged determination, Joanne challenged the status quo - and won. Now, as newly elected Sheriff of Cochise County, Arizona, she must battle the prejudice and hostility of a mistrustful, male-dominated police force - and solve a grisly double homicide that threatens to tear the sleepy desert community to pieces. For the two bodies baking in the harsh Southwestern sun are connected by sinister threads that reach back generations - and by devastating family secrets of greed, hatred and shocking abuse that could destroy the innocent along with the guilty.More

This is no JP Beaumont
The overall story is interesting, but the pace is too slow.
I picked up this series because I thoroughly enjoyed the JP Beaumont series and completely exhausted Audible's offerings in this category. So I really wanted to like this series, but this second book in the series is pacing even more slowly than the first. I'm 3 hours into the book and we still don't have a murder yet...
I find that the narration overall is fine, except for the voice of the daughter, which is grating on a level of fingernail-against-chalkboard. Every single line that the narrator delivers from the daughter comes out as a whine. It makes me wish the lead character would talk with her daughter about her attitude.
