Many businesses in Spruce Ridge, Colorado hire temporary international workers during the hectic ski season. One temp, Jaana Ivanov from Estonia, is found dead in her car at the bottom of a cliff, but the car crash was not an accident. Jaana didn’t just take her eyes off the road. She was murdered. Delaney Morran often feels vulnerable herself as the lone female tow truck driver in town, so when the victim’s sister asks Delaney to help find the killer, Delaney eyes everyone with suspicion. Delaney may not be the best at towing vehicles, but she’s pretty good at digging up clues.

EYES ON THE ROAD EXCERPT

Popping the gear into reverse, I cast a glance in my rearview mirror, then my side mirror, then back at the rear mirror. A slight tremor went through the truck. A man was bouncing on the front bumper of the Explorer! His head swayed and dipped as he jumped up and down causing the vehicle to bob with him. His full head of black hair and his long-sleeve tee-shirt with a sporting company’s swoosh symbol see-sawed in the mirror.

I jerked the truck into park and leapt out. “Get off there!”

He didn’t move, so I stomped in my glittery peep-toes to the back of my truck. When I was a few feet away, he hopped off and bolted toward the other side. I raced around to catch up, but he was as tall and thin as a lodgepole pine, and with his long legs he was faster than me. He dashed around the front of my truck, keeping the truck in between us as we circled each other.

I shouted, adrenaline kicking in, “I’m going to leave. You need to get out of the way because I’m going to pull out.”

He laughed, dove inside the driver’s door I’d left open, and reappeared in a flash dangling my key in his hand.

I let out a hair raising shriek, “Stop him!”

Maarja only gave me a wide-eyed look from the passenger window.

I rushed at him. “Gimme that!”

He held my key chain with the cute stiletto charm above my head. I made the mistake of jumping several times for the key, but he was over six feet tall. I’m five-two, so you get the picture. This was not working and I looked ridiculous.
