A sheriff seeking the truth, and the bad girl who will make him question everything...
Find her long lost dad? Check
Have a hot affair? Check
Land in the cross hairs of the town police? Wait. What?
Abby Byrd is on a journey to reconcile her past. Venturing to Granite Junction, she's searching for the father she hasn't seen in twenty years. It was meant to be a quick stop. Meet him and move on. Then, her car broke down. Temporarily stuck in the tiny little berg, the silver lining comes in the form of a sexy sheriff who allows her to check sizzling fling with a handsome cowboy off her bucket list.
Nathan Holt is married to his job as sheriff, and that's the only long-term commitment he intends to embark on. Especially after experiencing first-hand the devastation his own family suffered through after his father's death. Yet when a woman as fiery as she is beautiful comes to town, challenging him and firing his libido, he can't help but be drawn to her like a moth to a flame.
Unfortunately, as feelings begin to develop between the two, Abby becomes the target of malicious gossip and accusations. Will Nathan see past the faulty evidence and ludicrous claims against her? Or will his sense of duty and fear of commitment blind him to the truth?
I completely connected with these characters! That does NOT always happen for me. I could just feel their attraction. I thought this book was very well written with a great amount of conflict and emotion. Grand Junction was a wonderful small town with a lovable alpha cowboy sheriff and great secondary characters. In walked the heroine, Abby, looking for a place to belong. I really enjoyed watching these two characters get together. I highly recommend this book. Huge thank you to the author for allowing me to read and review this book.
