Molly Madison leads a luxurious life in Florida, a life most would be quite envious of in fact. She is married to a great looking attorney on a dedicated path in politics, she spends her afternoons at the country clubs with her girlfriends, and lives in a beautiful house surrounded by sun and palm trees. However, Molly’s story-book life seems to crumble before when she not only loses her parents tragically, but also finds out her husband is having an affair, with a another man! Molly escapes the life she has become accustom to in Florida to a completely different lifestyle in Montana to take over her family ranch and try to start her life over.
Molly stumbles upon an instant attraction to the ranch foreman, Clayton Leatherbe, and wishes desperately there is still hope for her to start a new life... possibly with this new man. The thoughts are quickly put to the back burner as Molly finds herself and her ranch under attack from land developers who wish her to sell off the ranch. But all the while there is also a murderer on the loose who has seemed to follow Molly from Florida to her home in Montana, and it’s a desperate search for Molly, Clayton and the local police department to find the connection.
The baseline of the story is exceptional. It has great twists and turns and the anticipation it generated is tremendous. I didn’t put the book down for long and it was a very easy read; however I found it a bit lacking in the detail department. The story seemed choppy, jumping randomly throughout the different subplots and character point of views. It lacked background information and seemed to draw you in only to leave you hanging while jumping into yet another part of the story. I would have liked the author to stay with a characters train of thought a bit longer before changing topics. Otherwise, the story was entertaining and interesting. Those that like a little mystery and suspense with their romance will enjoy this one!
