Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Creeks Bend is a dark and disturbing murder mystery blended perfectly with a sweet romance. The story starts with a murder and the bodies pile up steadily from there. The murders are gruesome and the descriptions are chilling and graphic. The story does slow down at times, but those times give more insight into the interesting characters, so it's never boring. On the romance side, we have Deklan, out of town detective called in to help with the case, and B&B owner, Elle. They're both interesting characters and the chemistry between them is so good, giving us some hope in the middle of the investigation. All combined, we have a budding romance, an obsessed ex, a medical examiner that is a bit of an odd duck, a hilarious parrot, and a killer who is as twisted as twisted gets. And Alora Kate brings it all together wonderfully. 



Excerpt:

Chapter 1 – Deklan



“Even in death, she’s beautiful,” the coroner of Crook County said, admiring the body on the slab while I did my best to keep my shit. Never, and I mean never in my career had I seen something, someone so tragic.

Christ.

It was bad.

I pushed my mask tighter against my face, the one the coroner gave me after dropping some oil on it—apparently, to mask the smell, which didn’t work. Even though I was pushing it into my skin, I could still smell her. I had a job to do though, so I did my best not to breathe too deeply, or at all.

Creeks Bend was in Crook County and was about a hundred miles from where I lived in Morris Hill. It was tucked away, nestled up in the Appalachian Mountain Range in Tennessee. Though Crook County had a few deputies, they were missing a detective so when the call came into the station, my commanding officer, Dan, decided I needed a break from my life and I jumped at the chance to get out of town.

“Don’t you think?” the coroner asked, glancing at me.

“What?”

“I said, ‘Even in death, she’s beautiful.’ Don’t you think so, Detective?”

I wondered what he was breathing through his mask as he looked down at the victim’s body again. Her face—what was left of it—was rotten. Her jaw and mouth were gone, one eye was missing, and all the hair on her head looked like it was plucked out, one strand at a time, leaving not even a hint of stubble on her bald scalp. She had multiple puncture wounds, small and circular and it was unclear if something had eaten part of her face or if had melted away.

She was beautiful, not today but prior to her death, I thought, yes. Yes, she was probably beautiful.

“Sure,” I answered, continuing to inspect her mutilated body. I noticed all her fingertips were missing, along with her toes and the left side of her stomach. They weren’t missing because they were cut off; no, they looked just like her face—like melted plastic.

The coroner leaned closer to the victim, his hand hovering above her arm as he closed his eyes. I heard him take a sharp inhale, the coroner’s nose a breath away from the curve of the woman’s neck. “She was,” the young man said and I shook my head.

“Can we get on with it?”
