Free book (nook/Kindle/iBooks/Sony/smashwords) - Blood Ties [Mystery w/ some Romance]

Blood Ties, 1st in the PI Julie Collins series by Lori G. Armstrong, is a mystery with apparently some romantic elements, given the praise it gets from the Romantic Times Book Review et al. on the product page, but not an actual "romantic suspense" per se.

This is B&N's Free Fridays book for the week, and since it's published by Medallion Press which has been fairly good about sharing out their freebies, it has a decent chance of showing up at Amazon and Sony and perhaps iTunes.

Free @ B&N, and you can read author Lori Armstrong's recommendation for western romance in the feature on the B&N blog post.

Description
Julie Collins is stuck in a dead-end secretarial job with the Bear Butte County Sheriff's office, and still grieving over the unsolved murder of her Lakota half-brother. Lack of public interest in finding his murderer, or the killer of several other transient Native American men, has left Julie with a bone-deep cynicism she counters with tequila, cigarettes, and dangerous men. The one bright spot in her mundane life is the time she spends working part-time as a PI with her childhood friend, Kevin Wells.

When the body of a sixteen-year old white girl is discovered in nearby Rapid Creek, Julie believes this victim will receive the attention others were denied. Then she learns Kevin has been hired, mysteriously, to find out where the murdered girl spent her last few days. Julie finds herself drawn into the case against her better judgment, and discovers not only the ugly reality of the young girl's tragic life and brutal death, but ties to her and Kevin's past that she is increasingly reluctant to revisit.

On the surface the situation is eerily familiar. But the parallels end when Julie realizes some family secrets are best kept buried deep. Especially those serious enough to kill for.

Other than the title, is there any relation to the original book posted?

Different author, different story line and self-published....
