"Murder on the Horizon" is the third in the Search and Rescue mystery series featuring Gracie Kinkaid. It was a finalist in the Mystery Category of the 2015 Colorado Book Awards. Most recently, it won Honorable Mention in the national 2020 Writers Digest Self-Published Book Awards. 


"Murder on the Horizon" returns readers to Timber Creek, where the hot, dry Santa Ana winds are blowing. But more than just the threat of wildfire endangers the tiny mountain community...

Gracie and her Search and Rescue teammates are searching along the highway in the middle of the blisteringly hot Mojave Desert when they make a grisly discovery--a trash bag containing human body parts.


Not long after, Gracie's growing friendship with a ten-year-old runaway draws her unwittingly into the secretive, hate-filled world of the boy's family--a group of gun-toting extremists. As a wildfire roars into Timber Creek, Gracie finds herself caught up in an explosive plot that, unless she stops it, will destroy countless innocent lives.
