A great beginning to a new series!
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
Wow is all I can say. This book had two mysteries in it. I have a feeling that the disappearance of James McKinnon will be a sub-plot throughout the series. The second plot is who is poisoning the people and the animals on Wolf Creek Ranch and why? Bree returns home after being away for 13 years. She disappeared after the love of her life Angus McKinnon joined the military. She was to wait for him to come back after training to marry and follow him around. But Bree leaves Montana for Alaska after her step-father was killed in a barn fire.
Bree is keeping a secret. One that she will reveal after figuring out who is poisoning the water supply to Wolf Creek. She has to stay away from Angus. She loves him too much to be around him. She has to protect him from her secret. What could be so horrendous that she left him all those years ago?
This story is a gripping one. I couldn't put it down until I finished it. My poor e-reader received a workout with this one. I can't wait for the next installment.
It you love intrigue romances, then this one is for you. The story will keep you entertained and like me, you will be sorry to say good-bye until the next one is released.
Keep up the great work Ms. James.
