WINNER, VIVIAN AWARD 2021
When a local bank robbery brings newly-elected Sheriff Beau Greystone to Wynn Owens' front door, she has only two things to give him: the endless bounty of her caustic wit and a one-finger salute. Wynn has a history with the law, none of it good. And the notion that one of her elderly tenants might have something to do with the robbery is just plain crazy.
A former DEA agent, Beau owes his newly minted badge solely to his meddling aunt and his own foolish indifference. Recovering from the murder of his wife—and the debilitating injury caused by the explosion that killed her—Beau has been happily checked out for some time. But the people of Blossom Hills are counting on him to do his job, and bringing a bank robber to justice is a fine place to start…until the killer that's haunted the town for the last decade abruptly returns.
Wynn has a tenant to exonerate; Beau, a killer to catch. Neither is prepared for the compelling but unwelcome current between them or the unexpected circumstances that will force them to reassess the rules by which they live. But the clock is ticking, and they must decide: adapt and evolve, or surrender to the past and the dark malevolence that has risen within it….
An intense, suspenseful romantic thriller with characters you won't forget.
