"Appealing…the aptly named Dr. Green and her friends are fresh enough to recycle."
—Publishers Weekly

"Falling Into Green is one of the freshest mysteries on the book scene."
—Steven Felder, TV Producer, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Everything — in nature and in murder – is connected...

As an ecopsychologist, Dr. Esmeralda Green is skilled at solving the mysteries of the mind, especially if they collide with the laws of nature. But when a body is found below the crumbling cliffs near her Los Angeles home, she is pulled back in time to a tragedy that defies all understanding.

When a young girl is murdered at the same cliff that took the life of her best childhood friend, Ez suspects the two are connected — and, having always lived up to her ecological name, she has learned to trust her intuition and the cues that the natural world can offer. In fact, from her hybrid car to her organic diet, Ez is living a sustainable life in every way — except for the man she’s falling in love with, an attractive TV news reporter who drives, of all things, a Hummer.

After Ez discovers a key piece of evidence, she is swept into a maze of corporate corruption and family secrets whose depths seem to have no bounds. As she finds herself venturing into ever more treacherous territory, her intuition and psychological skills can take her only so far. With the memory of her childhood friend haunting her at every turn, Ez finds herself falling further and further into danger…

Both an eco-mystery and a love story, Cher Fischer's captivating debut novel offers an intimate look at the myriad ways in which nature defines us.
