“Mabel and Jim
died in a car wreck on the mountain, both are dead, and the funeral
Ginny Matthews has
recently lost her husband. Now, she must deal with the brutal murder
of her foster parents. In her mind, the threat of danger tempts
her to stay where she feels the safest. Eventually, it’s the
Sheriff who convinces her to return home. Ginny heads back to Gold
Peak, Oregon, to painful memories and danger....
Sheriff Cully Black
is investigating Mabel's and Jim’s murders. Because of his
past with Ginny, he feels it’s his personal duty to convince
her to return for the reading of the Will. Black quickly sees a
change in Ginny. Her eyes, once blazing green fire, are now guarded.
When she refuses to consider her foster parents' wishes, he gets
the impression she prefers the big city to Gold Peak. The cowboy
cop takes his duty seriously when Ginny finally admits her fears....
This may be
Doreen Roberts’ first romantic suspense for Harlequin Intrigue,
but her veteran status as a romance writer clearly shines through.
She does a splendid job of blending romance with suspense. The false
leads are just enough to move the story along, but Roberts knows
what romance readers really want--a masterfully told tale of a deeply
emotional relationship. Highly recommended.
