Shadows Among the Ruins(2010)
(The first book in the Jemimah Hodge Mystery series)
A novel by Marie Romero Cash
Forensic psychologist Jemimah Hodge is much in demand for her keen understanding of the criminal mind. So much in demand, in fact, that she decides to escape the pressure by moving from L.A. to New Mexico to take a job with the local sheriff's office. She expects that her duties will be limited to assessing petty criminals and reporting her findings to the court. Jemimah had hoped to find a simpler life on her small ranch, located in the juniper-covered foothills of the Ortiz Mountains south of Santa Fe. A cowgirl at heart, she envisioned a place where she could spend more time in a saddle than a chair. Instead she finds herself knee deep in an investigation of a series of gruesome murders that took place right smack in the center of an ancient Indian pueblo. This case will not only test Jemimah's mettle, but also tug at her heartstrings. Now she must work side by side with Detective Rick Romero, a true 'hey let me be the cop' kind of guy with a soft spot for a pretty lady on an Appaloosa horse.
