Green Lake by S.K. Epperson

This is book that I got for free on amazon. It's also free on B&N and Smashwords. Madeleine's husband killed himself. He lost his job and just went downhill after that. She found out he gambled away everything they had. luckily, She sold the house before she lost it to the bank.  Maddie barely had enough money to pay for his funeral. Her sister Jacqueline and her husband Manuel took Maddie in.  They decided to let her stay at their lake cabin for the summer until she got it together and found a job.
As Maddie settles in at the cabin, she is attracted to the man next door after she gets over her immediate dislike for him.  Eris Renard is an Indian and she is an anthropologist that works with American Indians. Her last work in the field resulted in her being attacked by some young men.
A little girl was lost at the lake. Eris has to investigate because he is the conservation officer at the lake. But what no one realizes is that the disappearance of Kayla opens the depravity of a few people in the area.

I enjoyed this book. I liked how the story was building and building. It's full of suspense with a bit of romance.

From the author:
Suddenly widowed and penniless Madeleine Heron is forced to move into her sister’s vacation cabin on rural Green Lake, next door to taciturn Native American conservation officer Eris Renard. Instead of the peace and solitude she hopes to find at the lake Madeleine finds herself witness to depravity, blackmail, and murder among the strange residents. And in spite of the danger, she falls in love.
