"A spunky, quick-witted librarian who knows how to handle a firearm. An irresistibly imperfect alpha male hero who desperately wants to be a good man. Add a slowly unraveling mystery and Heather Day Gilbert's well-seasoned prose, and the result is a romantic story I'd check out again and again." ~ Christina Coryell, author of The Girls of Wonder Lane series
"Out of Circulation, the romantic suspense by Heather Day Gilbert, is a fun ride with clues and surprises along the way. It reminds me of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum and Ranger." ~ Jan Thompson, author of the Savannah Sweethearts and Seaside Chapel series
"Gilbert had me hooked from the very first page. A suspenseful, fast-paced read, lots of romantic tension, and compelling characters you root for and want to meet again." ~ Karin Kaufman, author of the Anna Denning mystery series
From the Inside Flap
Growing up, she'd always planned on joining the FBI, where her father had worked for fifteen years. But a permanent foot injury and her dad's early death had negated that plan.
So much for doing anything memorable or spectacular. It seemed God had a funny sense of humor, derailing her noble aspirations and sticking her in the podunk West Virginia town she grew up in.
"Miss Katie, where's the latest Georgia Ray book? I've read five in the series and can't find the next one."
Katie snapped out of her funk, directing the young patron to the correct Juvenile Fiction shelf. The girl's mother, searching for her own reads in Adult Fiction, shot her a grateful smile.
Returning to the New Releases shelf, Katie caught sight of a tall man she'd never seen at the Hemlock Creek Library before. He seemed out of place in his urban button-down and slim dress pants. His wavy, nearly-black hair set off crystal-clear blue eyes. He winked in response to her gawking, and she mentally kicked herself. Seriously. Her life was so boring that instead of bird-watching or stargazing, she'd resorted to nearly salivating over some handsome man perusing library shelves?
Sighing, she decided to reorganize the week's display books by color, starting with red. She'd worked up a small grouping of her favorite reads when she glanced toward the Reference section. Something caught her eye.
A man in a mask.
