At Loggerheads
Murder on a South Carolina barrier island brings together a sea turtle biologist and a local detective to unravel a mystery that might impact the race for the White House. 
 
In late May, loggerhead sea turtles should be nesting on Anders Isle and scientist Brooke Edens should feel more at home on the island where she grew up. But something is amiss. When a dead body surfaces along with other big crimes, Brooke finds herself entangled in a homicide investigation with detective Drew Young, her closest friend (and sometimes love interest). At the same time, a favorite candidate is emerging for the upcoming US presidential election, and he happens to be the father of Brooke's ex-fiancé, who just complicates matters with each visit to the island. While Brooke's knowledge of sea turtles helps Drew discover and decipher evidence, the many revelations, betrayals, and secrets threaten not only the investigation but also Brooke's closest relationships and her beloved turtles. Will they be able to untangle the web of crimes and catch the killer before it is too late?
