It's mid-August in the Outer Banks village of Corolla and Fire Chief Colleen McCabe is conducting rookie training and spending increasingly more time with her best friend, Sheriff Bill Dorman. The wild horses have been relocated to the sanctuary, and the town is occupied with the upcoming local theatre production. All is right with the world. But when a member of the acting troupe is found dead in the dunes after an emergency training exercise and Bill's ex-fiancée arrives in town, Colleen knows trouble is back with a vengeance.

Booklist Review: "On a late summer day on the beach in Corolla, on the Outer Banks off North Carolina, Fire Chief Colleen McCabe is conducting what should be a routine training drill. This one looks more real than others, as the theater company is taking a break from rehearsals for an upcoming benefit to play victims in the disaster simulation. All is going well until one actress fails to get up from the beach at the end of the drill. When another in the company is killed a few days later, Bill Donovan, Currituck County sheriff, swings into action. But first, he and Colleen need to clear the air about their romantic involvement with other people, as well as share what they have each learned independently, so that they can work together on the finding the killer. They do, of course, and even though the theater company has lost two of its members, the show goes on, producing a play about the wild horses that live on a reserve near Corolla. An amiable mystery, sure to interest fans of Margaret Maron's Deborah Knott series, also set in North Carolina.--Muller, Karen Copyright 2014 Booklist"
