Back Roads
By Susan Crandall 

    Leigh Mitchell has been sheriff for a couple of years now in the sleepy town of Glen Crossings. As her thirtieth birthday approaches, she feels like life is passing her by. She's beginning to feel strangled by the monotony of each passing day. That's all about to change.

     Brittany Wilson is the town's wild child. She's eighteen years old. Trouble looking for a place to happen. Her father recently ran off with a woman half his age. Brittany was always the apple of her daddy's eye. Not anymore. Trying to get his attention back, she slinks around town, scantily clad and cuddling up to older men. Now all of her flirting with danger has finally caught up with her. Late one night her empty car is found, window smashed, motor running. Brittany has vanished.

     Will Scott is a man on the run. He's haunted by nightmares of his past. He drifts from town to town, never daring to stay for long. As a child, he briefly stayed in Glen Crossings with his great aunt. It's one of few places of which he has happy memories. Now fate has brought him back.
Some find it odd that the first serious crime to happen in many years occurs right after a stranger comes to town. Who could doubt that there's a connection? Only the sheriff, who's falling in love with the handsome stranger.

     This book moves along at a nice pace and the sexual scenes are quite steamy! I found the conclusion of Brittany's saga to be somewhat disappointing, but the final climax of the book made up for it. Overall, this is a pretty good book.
