An Eagle Creek Mystery: Book 1 Ten years ago, Lynnie June Wilton left her tiny home town of Eagle Creek, Oklahoma behind in the dead of night, covered in blood and ashes. That night, lucky to be alive, she swore never to take another step into the place that had been her personal purgatory for 17 years. Unfortunately, no matter how good a person's intentions are, fate has a tendency to jerk a knot in your tail when you're not looking. Bad news from back home leaves her little choice in the matter--she's got to put on her big girl panties, head back, and do what she can for her grandfather.

While she might intend to get in and out as fast as possible and with very little fuss, unprecedented flooding strands her in the last place on Earth she wants to be. Oh, and the pickle on top of the crap sandwich that has become her Summer? Smooth talking Carter Greenfield. As though there isn't already enough on her plate, it appears that due to some ...creative bookkeeping habits of her grandfather's, she and Carter will be bunk mates for the foreseeable future.

From one second to the next, she can't decide if she wants to punch his smart mouth or kiss it. Either way, tensions between them are rising faster than the floodwaters. With biting Southern wit and a quirky cast of characters, L.J. Wilton is about to turn the town of Eagle Creek upside down.

The secrets she'll uncover will rip through the tiny community like a tornado and once uncovered, those secrets will change everything. (Eagle Creek Mysteries may be read as stand-alone books. While they share many common characters and reading them as a whole series will certainly add to the experience, each book is a complete story arc.)
