Gracier (Gracier, #1) by Milissa R. Bailey

Gracier (Gracier, #1) by Milissa R. Bailey

Reading the blurb of Gracier by Milissa R. Bailey, it reminded me of Ella Grace’s Wildfire series.

The idea that the trusted neighbor or a waitress from the local diner could be evil is just too tempting. Welcome to Gracier, Iowa, a well-kept community with even better kept secrets. Lives are peaceful, streets are quiet, but behind the tranquility is many a tale to be told. Veterinarian Jessica McCabe has returned, but it is not the homecoming she had expected. Her grandfather, […]
