Product description


Featuring the protagonist of "Give My Secrets Back", Denver cop Alison Kane escapes from the stresses of her life to stay with her best friend in New Mexico. But while helping to build a house on lesbian land, she discovers a body in the sweat lodge and suspects it's a murder case.

From the Author

My favorite so far!
I had a really great time writing this one - I got to explore a lot of my own stereotypes about people in the queer community, plus it was just fun being in a new place. (Take One is set in New Mexico, which is one of the places where I grew up.) I'm working on a new Alison novel which I think is due to come out next year.
