A deadly secret. A relentless reporter. A truth that might be better left buried.
In the small town of Himmel, Wisconsin, reporter Leah Nash is scraping by, working again at the local paper that she left a decade ago. But when a torrential storm reveals a gruesome secret - a dead nun from the local school for troubled kids - Leah's quiet life is shattered.
Sister Mattea was no ordinary nun. She had deep secrets that no one knew. Secrets that might connect the nun’s suspicious death with the tragic accident that took Leah's sister Lacey’s life at the same school years ago.
As Leah delves deeper, she uncovers a web of deceit, corruption, and danger entangling the school's charismatic leaders, wealthy donors, and even her own boss. The deeper she digs, the more she realizes that her sister’s death was no accident, and the nun’s death was no random event.
As Leah gets closer to the shocking truth, she becomes the killer’s next target. With every powerful enemy she makes, she doesn’t know who she can trust anymore. As she races against time, she must answer one crucial question: Is she willing to risk her life for a truth that could bring her own world crashing down?
In "Dangerous Habits", the first book in the Leah Nash Mystery Series, Susan Hunter weaves a complex tale of betrayal, vengeance, and a silence that can't last forever. Great for fans of Lisa Gardner and Karin Slaughter.
