Big Cypress Crossroads
From the deep swamps of the Everglades to the glittering nightclubs of South Beach, Miami-Dade police detective Scott Chandler is hot on the trail of the drug running cartel that killed some good officers in a firefight and left him with a steel rod in his leg. The last thing he expected to find was love in the form of a seemingly innocent wilderness guide–a guide who inexplicably knows more than he should.
Noah Taylor lives for the wild backwoods, spending days camping alone and only returning to town on the weekends to lead kayak tours through the dark waterways of the Everglades. But when he finds the remains of a ritually sacrificed body hanging from the twisted limbs of a mangrove tree, his life is about to change in ways he cannot predict–or can he?
Now Scott must untangle a web of deceit while struggling with his passion for Noah. Because loving him is easy. But trusting him could be deadly. — Excerpt from Big Cypress Crossroads by Bren Christopher Note: Graphic language and sexual situation.

For folks not familiar with Florida, I included a couple of maps. The fictional town of Big Cypress is located near the Chokoloskee Bay in the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge on the west coast. Miami is on the east coast, so Scott and Noah traveled I-75 – aka Alligator alley – across Florida to get to the casino in Hollywood. It only takes a couple of hours to cross Florida from west to east, but it takes fourteen hours to drive from Pensacola in NW Florida to the southernmost tip of Florida – and the southernmost tip of the U.S. – Key West. Florida is one very long state! And that’s your trivia for today.
