Nineteen years after a devastating crime almost killed her, Erica Lawrence has returned home. In the small town of Olinda, her story is legend. And now everyone knows she's back, including top cop and her childhood friend, Jordan Hill, the only person to ever touch her guarded heart.
When a woman's body is found brutally murdered, suspicion soon falls on Olinda's newest resident and even Jordan must admit that the evidence is stacking up against the woman he swore to protect.
While Jordan and Erica struggle with their feelings for each other, the murders continue and the tension in town grows. Together, they must find a way to prove Erica's innocence - before she becomes the killer's next victim.
Brilliantly capturing the intense range of emotions felt when trust breaks down, Small Town Storm is a startling Australian debut.
