Never! D.C. style scribe Lacey Smithsonian always swore she would never go back—back to Sagebrush, Colorado, that scruffy
hard-luck Western boomtown where she'd earned her reporter’s spurs. But then three young women are murdered, their bodies left
barefoot on lonely country roads, and the accused is her old boyfriend, Sagebrush rancher Cole Tucker. Lacey cowgirls up and heads
out West (in her best cowboy boots) to prove Tucker's innocence. And perhaps to resolve the last of her old feelings for the man she
had loved and left. Naturally, Lacey's plan doesn’t sit well with her current beau, private investigator Vic Donovan, who has his
own history (and game plan) in Sagebrush.
Tucker takes one look at Lacey and kicks over everyone's game plan: He abducts her
in a daring courthouse escape into the badlands of northern Colorado. On the run from the law with her old flame, in stolen vehicles
and on horseback, with Vic and the posse in pursuit, Lacey's world turns upside down. Who can she trust? Tucker or Vic? The law
or her own feelings and her reporter's instincts? Caught between two men, with a vicious killer on her trail, Death on
Heels is a whole new—and potentially fatal—frontier for this fashion reporter.
These boots were made for dying
"Dying with your boots on is a point of pride in the West, Vic. But these women died barefoot,”
Lacey said. “And that grieves me!”
Digging around the bottom of
her small closet, she hunted for her cowboy boots. Lacey wasn’t going to be caught unaware and unshod. Not like those three women.
Colorado rancher Cole Tucker had been arrested for murder, so fashion reporter Lacey Smithsonian was heading back to the last place
on earth she swore she'd ever return: Sagebrush.
Lacey's Fashion Bite of the Day:
The higher the heel, the harder the fall. Every shoe, like
every woman’s dating history, has a heel.
High heels can lift you to new heights, but beware of killer heels: the ones you wear
and the ones you date. Choose high heels that fit and lift your spirits, and kick those other heels to the curb!
