Blue Blood For Life... Book 2

Book Two in the "My Blood Runs Blue" Series
Officer Kristin Greene is back for another suspenseful book packed with romance, mystery and intrigue.

After a month off, Kristin comes back to work happier then she's been in a long time. Her new status in life has her solving crimes faster and better than she ever could before. She's on top of the world, well for the most part. If she could just get him off the topic of finishing the transition, she'd be fine.

When Alex goes missing, Kristin finds she finally has to reveal the secrets of her life to her friends. Can her friends handle the truth of what Kristin has become? Will they be able to stand beside her after they learn all that she has hidden from them?

Julian stands beside her faithfully as they try to locate Alex. When Gabe returns to the house to help with the investigation he finds that Alex has left an incredible task to be undertaken.  Julian is surprised to find Trent already in Fawn Hollow Township, but knows that Trent will be the only one to do what Alex has asked them to do. Can Julian trust Trent to do it, or should he undertake Alex’s last request himself?

As one more choice is taken away from Kristin, she attempts to make the best of it, but finds herself drawn to Trent in a way Julian and Alexander could never compare to.
As Trent goes to work with Kristin to keep her safe, will he be able to handle all that her police world entails? Can he handle the new side of her that she reveals, the one that Alex and Julian know nothing about?

When Kristin and Trent finally uncover the connection between her job and the kidnapping, they are finally able to put the pieces together, but can they get to Alex fast enough? Will Kristin be able to handle rescuing Alex and all that she learns in the process?

Join Kristin, Julian and Alexander again as they dive into a new mystery that has you turning the pages quickly to search out the answers to all the questions that come up.

Excerpt from My Blood Runs Blue

Chapter 6 - Kristin's notification

Mr. Taylor’s nostrils flared and his mouth slacked open slightly as he looked into my eyes.  “Dead, she’s dead?”

I stared at him, damn, did I forget to wipe the sign off my face that says, ‘hey man, sorry, but your daughter’s dead.’  How’d he know that?  Had someone from the scene called him already?

I turned back to Mrs. Taylor and found her staring at her husband eyes wide, mouth open as if she would speak. 

Wait, this was not going how it should.  I cleared my head and looked back at them, Mr. Taylor had moved over to stand beside his wife and they were both looking at me now, waiting. 

“Mr. & Mrs. Taylor, I am very sorry to say that your daughter Dawn is dead.” I HATED saying that sentence, but it was a sentence that was drilled into you from the moment you entered the academy.  You do not say, I’m sorry your daughter was in an accident, or your daughter did not make it.  Not in the first sentence. You can elaborate later, but that first sentence, has to be the one that they remember for the rest of their life.  The one that tells them, this is not a sick joke, and they are not just going to wake up tomorrow and find her asleep in her bed.  That sentence had to say it was real and it was final.  

They both stared back me. I saw Mrs. Taylor’s lips move, and I could have sworn I heard her say, “he found us”, but I thought it was more in my imagination until I looked into Mr. Taylor’s steel grey eyes and saw them widen and look at me quickly to see if I had heard what she said.  I managed to keep my face perfectly clear and thought I would mull over that statement later.
