Is Frankie O'Carney guilty of stealing Livvy Randall's heart – or is he guilty of murder?
Livvy Randall won't let anything stop her chance at a journalism career in Chicago. That is until the passenger train she is riding in breaks down in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, a town not much bigger than her home in Lincoln, Nebraska. She acquires a room at the Hotel Montrose where she meets the devilishly handsome Frankie O'Carney, an Irish bad boy working in maintenance at the hotel.
When Frankie is accused of murdering the wealthy H.M. Goodrich, Livvy does everything she can to clear his name. With danger at every turn, Livvy searches for answers to the questions plaguing her. Is Frankie with the quiet, brooding Poppy? Why, when the Irishman is near, does her heart beat out of control? Will she get out of Cedar Rapids and back on the train to Chicago with her heart intact? And – is Frankie really innocent...or is he guilty?
