Where There’s Smoke is a mystery/thriller, set within the Fire Brigade in Northern Ireland, with a strong female protagonist and a dark psychological edge.
Jo Woods is fighting to hold on to her job and her sanity. Banished to the backwater town of Mourne Lough she vows to stop making waves, admit her family’s death was an accident and the guilt she feels is just plain old survivor guilt.
Then she finds the roses and everything changes.
The killer hasn’t stopped. He’s here. In the same town. Stalking her. And once again no one believes her.
After seven years of avoiding family and friends, Jo is alone and friendless in a strange town. In order to survive and, more importantly, bring the killer to justice, she must overcome her fears, embrace her new life. And she must do it quickly, because the killer has his sights set on her and he’s willing to kill anyone who gets in his way.
Enter Ian “Coop” Cooper, who sets Jo’s pulse fluttering and her antenna into overdrive.
Does she dare trust him?
One thing Jo is clear about: This killer destroyed her life once before. No way is she going to let him do it again.
No matter what it takes!
