Happy Release Day! — Deadlocked

25 Jan

Happy release day to Heather Day Gilbert. The third book in her Hemlock Creek Suspense series, Deadlocked, is now available on Kindle. If you are partial to a paperback, you’ll have to wait a little bit longer. But here’s the good news — if you haven’t started this wonderful mystery series, you have plenty of time to read the first two books in anticipation of Deadlocked! 😉 See all the details below.


Brandon McClure has just moved back to his hometown of Hemlock Creek, ready to feed his love of adventure and the great outdoors as a whitewater tour guide. But before he can settle into the new job, he’s chosen for jury duty, where he ends up sitting front and center in the headliner trial of local tycoon Harlan Wells, a man accused of murdering his wife. When a key witness takes the stand, Brandon feels certain their paths have crossed before, but for the life of him, he can’t recall when or where.

Nasha Patel’s testimony is crucial to the conviction of the accused murderer. That night in the emergency room, Nasha was the only one who heard the dead woman’s final statement . . . which put a target on her back. Fresh out of witness protection and feeling vulnerable and exposed, she’s acutely aware that all eyes are trained on her — including those of Juror Number 3, a stranger whose kindness once made a lasting impression on her.

When the courtroom erupts into chaos and Nasha turns her terrified gaze on Brandon, it quickly becomes clear that only his unique skills can protect her . . . if only he can get to her before the hired hitmen do.



Award-winning novelist Heather Day Gilbert enjoys writing mysteries and Viking historicals. She brings authentic family relationships to the page, and she particularly delights in heroines who take a stand to protect those they love. Avid readers say Heather’s realistic characters — no matter what century — feel like best friends. When she’s not plotting stories, this native West Virginia gal can often be found hanging out with her husband and four children, playing video games, or reading Agatha Christie novels.
