Everywhere She Turns by Debra Webb features Cynthia Jane (CJ) Patterson and Major Crimes Detective Kevin Braddock in this romantic suspense story set in Huntsville, Alabama. Publisher: St. Martin’s Paperbacks; June 2009
When Dr. CJ Patterson returns to her Southern hometown, she finds herself surrounded by a series of long-buried secrets—and a killer who seems to know her better than she knows herself…
Drugs, prostitution, robbery, homicide—these are four terms that Dr. CJ Patterson learned all too well growing up on the seamy, forgotten streets of inner-city Huntsville, Alabama. Fiercely determined, CJ worked hard to forget where she came from and become an emergency medicine resident at a prestigious Baltimore hospital. But when her younger sister—the only family she ever had—is murdered, CJ is drawn back into the painful past she thought she’d left behind. Her unrelenting investigation uncovers a highly sophisticated web of shocking family secrets, dark obsession, and brutal violence and a killer who will stop at nothing to keep her from learning the truth…..
CJ goes home when she hears that her sister has been murdered. When she seeks the help of the local cops, she doesn’t believe they are doing enough to solve this crime, especially because of the unlikely path her sister has chosen. Betrayals and revenge hunts CJ as she gets closer to the truth. My rating: 3.5 stars
