She’s got an eye for fashion. He’s got a knack for solving crimes. Can two total strangers solve the perfect murder?

Gillianne “Gilly” Wilder has an eye for design and big dreams of taking on the fashion industry. After years of scrimping and saving, she’s a few paychecks away from her first semester at Seattle’s prestigious school of design. But before her first class begins, her small Washington hometown takes a bloody turn when a dead body washes ashore. And Gilly can’t help but get distracted by the handsome reporter who comes to investigate.

Skip Hunter dreams of trading in beat reporting for writing bestselling thrillers. When a murderer strikes a sleepy Washington town, he thinks solving the case could be the perfect material for his debut novel. But he soon finds his hands full when a gold heist hits the same sleepy town. As he tries to connect the crimes, he meets a beautiful wanna-be designer who’s standing a bit too close to the line of fire.

After they start working together to crack the case, they can't help the sparks flying between them. When the killer stands between them and their future, can Gilly and Skip find the courage to follow their heart before they become the next victims?
