In Foxfire, Tennessee, nothing bad can happen. It’s a quiet community, filled with warm and loving people. And it’s the perfect place for Grace Wilkins to stay and begin a new life—where she can hopefully stop running from drug-trafficking mobster and former lover, Max Clayton. But after Grace’s new fiancé finds out about her past, he breaks their engagement, which puts a pall over her new beginning. A serial killer dubbed the Knoxville Knifer doesn’t help much, either. Then a series of suspicious events occur, and Grace begins to fear that Max has found her.

Tyler Sandford plans to take on one last assignment before hanging up his badge and turning in his gun for a lab coat and a stethoscope. He sets up a veterinarian practice in Foxfire hoping that, once the case is solved, he’ll be able to stay and treat pets for the rest of his life. He’s also there to keep an eye on Grace. At Max’s trial, she claimed not to know about his illegal activities, but Tyler isn’t so sure until he meets her and learns the kind of woman she is.

All of those who testified against Max have turned up dead, except for Grace. And if Max finds her, she’ll be next. In a cruel twist of fate, Tyler finds himself rushing to capture the man who killed his wife and unborn child before he can take Grace from him, too.

Foxfire is suspenseful and chilling at times. I loved the atmosphere, and the characters and setting held the warmth of a small-town, close-knit community. Ms. Erhardt brought to life every aspect of place and time—and I could easily picture this little community in my mind.

The only thing that bothered me about the novel was the way Grace puts herself in danger near the story’s end. It seemed unrealistic—not to mention pretty stupid. In real life, a stunt like that would most likely get you killed unless you’re extremely lucky—and how often are most of us that lucky?

Other than that, though, I truly enjoyed Foxfire. It was a book that I always looked forward to picking up after a long day at work.
