First of the River's Edge Series
Newsprint to Footprints
Grouchy news publisher Hal Morris fires reporter Melanie Perkins because she takes too
many photos of flowers when she's supposed to concentrate on the story at hand. She lands
work as a landscaper, but there's an ugly surprise her first day at the new job.

At first no one thinks Melanie could be a killer. But when her hoe turns up in the same mulch
pile as a body, the local sheriff isn't so sure. Mel’s initially willing to let law enforcement clear
her name, but the hoe and a nighttime assault convince Melanie she has to look out for herself.

Life along the Des Moines River in Iowa can be peaceful, but the murderer has no problem
disturbing Melanie’s tranquility.
