|FISHING, FESTIVITES & FATALITIES|
It’s winter in Minnesota, a wonderful time for hot chocolate, snuggly blankets, and … fishing! Katie Wilk is celebrating her first Christmas with her dad since the horrific shooting that nearly claimed his life, and when they are invited to participate in their small town’s ice-fishing tournament, they readily agree.
But the ice is a treacherous place, and one of Katie’s students accidentally falls through, creating a harrowing situation and a rescue by Katie and her trained black Lab, Maverick. Later, Katie discovers the spot where Brock went into the icy water was deliberately cut, and the intended victim turns out to be one of the town’s least lovable, curmudgeonly characters.
But what really pulls Katie into the thick of the investigation is that Dr. Pete Erickson, the man who makes her heart beat faster, is accused of murder. There’s no way Katie can let that go! Ignoring warnings to stay out of the case, Katie and Maverick track leads in what proves to be their trickiest investigation so far.

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun rise warm upon your face
May the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
