Nineteen years after a devastating crime almost killed her, Erica Lawrence has returned home. In the small mountain town of Olinda, her story is legend. And now everyone knows she's back, including top cop and childhood best friend, Jordan Hill, the first and only person to ever touch her guarded heart.

When a woman goes missing and her body is found brutally murdered, fear swallows the town. And suspicion soon turns on Olinda's newest resident: Erica. As the cop in charge of the murder investigation, Jordan has to face the awful truth that the prime suspect is the woman he always swore to protect. While Jordan and Erica struggle with their feelings for one another, the murders mount up and the tension grows. Not only that, but Erica has a dark secret that she'll do anything to keep from Jordan…

Small Town Storm is a gripping read that captures the intensity and passion of first love and the terror of a town where trust has broken down. This is the unforgettable story of a lifelong romance, and of an innocent childhood tainted by evil that won't let go.

Author

Elise K. Ackers

Elise K. Ackers was born in New South Wales, Australia, but she grew up in Western Australia, northern Queensland, Sydney's Blue Mountains, and the Victorian Dandenong Ranges. Suffice to say, she enjoys change and likes to travel.

​Elise was a storyteller before she was a writer. For hours on end she would recount every moment of her kindergarten days to her mum, pausing often for dramatic effect. She would help her dad finish bed-time stories - sending the family dog and cat to the moon, amongst other adventures. And almost from the start her parents knew. They just knew what she'd grow up to be.

​In later years she wrote plays. Her older brother was the lighting designer and the sound producer and she was the leading lady, the hero and the villain. She wrote and distributed a weekly family newsletter and had a hand-made mailbox taped to her primary school desk to accept letters from friends who were co-authoring an epic animal adventure story.
