"The last time homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite was in Cedar Grove, it was to see her sister's killer put behind bars. Now she's returned for a respite and the chance to put her life back in order for herself, her attorney husband, Dan, and their new daughter. But tragic memories soon prove impossible to escape. Dan is drawn into representing a local merchant whose business is jeopardized by the town's revitalization. And Tracy is urged by the local PD to put her own skills to work on a new case: the brutal murder of a police officer's wife and local reporter who was investigating a cold-case slaying of a young woman. As Tracy's and Dan's cases crisscross, Tracy's trail becomes dangerous. It's stirring up her own haunted past and a decades-old conspiracy in Cedar Grove that has erupted in murder. Getting to the truth is all that matters. But what's Tracy willing to risk as a killer gets closer to her and threatens everyone she loves?"--Provided by publisher.… (more)

Tracy and Dan are back in Cedar Grove with their 2-year old, and an Irish nanny. Tracy gets drawn into a murder investigation by her old friend, acting police chief Ray Calloway to help determine if his successor burned down his own house, killing his journalist wife. The wife has been investigating the death of Tracy's classmate and the subsequent accidental hunting death of a PI, hired by the classmates' parents. Meanwhile, it seems that there is something rotten in Cedar Point as the town council has been evicting business, and selling them for $1, to bring in new ones. Dan is defending one such owner, and in the course of his investigation, makes some interesting discoveries. Of course, the two stories twist together, and once again endanger Tracy, Dan and their family. Having Faz and his wife come down to help with the baby was a nice addition, since Faz is a hoot. ( )

A Cold Trail is the 7th mystery in the Tracy Crosswhite series. While visiting their home at Cedar Grove and away from their home in Seattle, detective Tracy takes up a cold case and her lawyer husband Dan works on a village case. Both run concurrently and the reader must keep them sorted out. There are plenty of surprises that keep you guessing. ( )

So while this is book 7 in a series with Tracy Crosswhite as the main character, I have not read any of the prior novels in the series. Tracy and her husband make a temporary move back to Tracy’s hometown of Cedar Grove, a place with many painful memories. This time she brings her husband and her brand new 2 month old daughter. Unsure if she wants to return to her job as a detective, Tracy trues to enjoy domestic life. When the old police chief approaches Tracy asking for assistance with a string of homicides that he believes might be related, Tracy’s interest is peaked. It all began with the 26 year old homicide of a young woman who Tracy went to school with. With new revelations about the case, Tracy agrees to give her expertise on these cold cases. Tracy’s husband Dan, working as an attorney, catches a case defending a local business owner who is being forced out of his business so the city can buy up the property. While the homicides are decidedly cold, Tracy soon discovers that their killer doesn’t take kindly to the fresh interest in the case. Story is thorough and well written. A slow burning mystery that introduces multiple suspects and is able to pull off a surprise at the end. An exciting head scratching mystery. Thank you to Netgalley for the advanced copy. ( )

A Cold Trail by Robert Dugoni is the seventh mystery in the Tracy Crosswhite series but it works well as a stand-alone. However, I now realize that I would enjoy reading the previous books as well. Seattle police detective Tracy Crosswhite has returned to her hometown of Cedar Grove with her husband Dan and their infant daughter, while their home is being renovated. Dan is a lawyer and is soon working on a case for a local merchant. Tracy is asked by the police chief to assist in the investigation of the death of a journalist who died under suspicious circumstances. It soon becomes evident that Dan and Tracy’s cases may be related and someone in town is feeling threatened by the truths they are uncovering and will do anything to stop them. The pair will need to go several decades back in time, in their search for the truth. The story moves at a fast pace with plenty of suspense to keep the reader guessing. Highly recommended. Thank you to Thomas & Mercer and NetGalley for the e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Another fine installment in the Tracy Crosswhite series. Tracy and Dan temporarily move back to Cedar Grove as their house in Redman is being remodeled. The Chief enlists Tracy's help in investigating a couple of murders, years apart, that seem connected. Although I almost had the ending I was quite there! With Dan representing a client of Cedar Grove's long time businesses and Tracy investigating the murders, the couple have their hands full. ( )
