Welcome to Goose Down, Ohio, where Moira Potts has shattered the glass ceiling as the town’s first female sheriff. Moira knew she’d been a good deputy but this is different. Now, she’s the one in charge and while she’s anxious to get to work, she’s more than a little nervous.

But nerves are a luxury the new sheriff can’t afford. 

Before the campaign signs have all come down and the last balloon has popped, the unthinkable happens. A school shooter critically wounds the town’s beloved track coach making the people of the town wonder: Is the new sheriff, up for the monumental challenge that lies ahead? She’s young, she’s untested, and she’s —well, a she. 

Join Moira Potts in this thrilling cozy mystery as she takes on the most important case of her career, proving to the town—and to herself- that Goose Down has a sheriff who gets the job done.
