Celestia is FallingCelestia is Falling by Morgan Kelley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Celestia is Falling is the first in the Croft & Croft Romance Adventure series by Morgan Kelley.
Sheriff Emma Starling has settled in the quiet backwater of Celestia to get away from the violence in Philadelphia, where she witnessed her brother’s murder. When the first murder happens in Celestia, Emma calls in the FBI, against the mayor’s wishes. She recognises there are more to come.
This is an excellent read and is a well-written book with great main characters that you’ll care about. Emma and FBI Agent Greyson Croft fall in love at first sight and basically can’t keep their hands to themselves.
What I found unusual was the mixture of two genres, even though that is how the book is advertised. As a reader I was so interested in the crime part that I almost felt the romance side held the story up! Nevertheless both genres are entwined smoothly and well-written and some readers will be more interested in that aspect.
The supporting characters of Deputy Reese and FBI agent Curtis Briggs are also well drawn, as are the mayor and Gail (Croft’s former love interest).
I’d certainly recommend, ‘Celestia is Falling’ and look out for this author in future.
