Her face, beautiful even in death, gazed open-eyed at the azure sky. Her brown, silky hair fanned around her head, bringing out the pallor of her skin. Her lips were slightly parted as if she was still breathing, as if she was whispering her goodbyes.

Detective Kay Sharp has acclimated to her career as a detective back in her home town. She was an FBI agent, profiler and is a psychologist. She returned home previously when her brother Jacob was in trouble, and she ended up staying and joined the local police force.
Her newest case really has her on edge. In fact, Kay and Jacob are hiding a secret that could totally destroy their lives, and her newest case brings her past front and center. Can she solve the case of who killed a young girl named Jenna, all while closely guarding her secret?
While Kay is looking for answers, so is her partner Elliot Young. In fact, he just might be looking for more. His feelings towards Kay are strong, but he has very good reasons for not letting her know how he feels. The fact that they are working together so closely on this current case only works to exacerbate his growing feelings even more.
In this book one thing is made very clear. There is no such thing as a coincidence, and this proves to be an undeniable fact for Kay and for Elliot. It was quite interesting to watch Kay navigate what was going on now, all while feelings of sadness and regret threatened to consume her.
While this thrilling book could be read as a standalone, understanding Kay and her motivations is made much clearer by reading this compelling series in order. For an excellent read, one that not only deals with a serious crime towards a teenager but goes back to the tragedy that Kay and her brother Jacob experienced, then look no further than this book, The Girl on Wildfire Ridge. You will be glad you picked this one up. I love this engaging series and cannot wait to see where things go with book five.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
