Welcome to Mystery, Montana, a small town with dark secrets…
The body found in the Dunrovin Ranch stables isn’t just a crisis for Wyatt Fitzgerald’s family or his top priority as sheriff—Gwen Johansen is both the victim’s sister…and Wyatt’s ex. And in a small town like Mystery, events of the past don’t seem to fade. Maybe she’d misjudged his potential when they were younger, but now he could be her greatest ally—and not just in the investigation. That is, if he can work his way around a broken heart. With the killer circling, the clock is counting down on more than Christmas, a time when family means everything and forgiveness is the best gift of all.
Mystery, Montana earns it's name well as the mystery surrounding a murder swirls around the story line and leads us on a hunt for the criminal living among them! We're brought deep into the midst of the crime from the very start of the book and watch with baited breath for the culprit to be caught. The characters are fairly well developed, and the plot is thick ... the ending was a bit abrupt and could have used a little tweaking, but overall, a solid read!
Gwen Johansen is floored when lawman Wyatt Fitzgerald shows up at her family ranch to make the notification that her sister is dead. Was it an accident, did she die naturally, was she murdered? At first the answers are up in the air as things appear different than they actually are, but Gwen will stop at nothing to find out the truth.
Wyatt was her high school sweetheart and they had a bright future planned before it all fell apart in the aftermath of one accident. He's never forgotten her, but she's never forgiven him. Will close proximity force them to confront the past and lay it to rest once and for all?
