About the Book
Prepare to settle in for a slow romance, some Maryland crab, and a bit of murder.
On the Eastern Shore of Maryland, life is often laidback, except for Clare Danforth, who is in her junior year at college and is busy between dual majors, a string of gruesome student deaths by a serial murderer named the Wicomico Killer, and a drunken night of sex with a fellow female student. As a Catholic, Clare hides her one-time gay mistake, but hiding who she is becomes increasingly more difficult after meeting Trooper Leigh Carver, one of Maryland’s finest.
Leigh Carver is a tall, gorgeous, and totally gay police officer. As a young Maryland State Trooper, she works hard and loves her job, willing to sacrifice anything for her badge—including her sexual orientation. But her attraction to Clare forces her to confront her decision to serve in silence and to question whether it’s possible to have both duty and love.
As the serial killer escalates his kill rate, Clare and Leigh are faced with life changing choices. But will if they make them in time, before Wicomico Killer sets his sights on Clare?
Wicomico Slow is a 118,000 word 3rd-person New Adult Contemporary Lesbian Romance novel, including a minor thriller theme. Suitable for a mature audience. No cliffhanger.
