When a prominent senator's wife is murdered in the small Arizona town of Whiskey River, Sheriff Trace Callaghan must solve the crime quickly. But he doesn't expect the victim's sister, Mariah Swann, to be fully involved. In a case with illicit desires and dark secrets, nothing is as it seems. Original.
There're lots of four-wheel-drive vehicles in modern western romance. Heroine Mariah Swan drives her Jeep Grand Cherokee from Malibu to Whiskey River, Arizona, to make a new beginning with her estranged sister, Laura, the wife of a no-account, philandering Senator. Regrettably, before Mariah arrives, someone murders Laura and her unborn baby. Mariah, who's an Emmy-winning TV mystery writer, stays on in Arizona to catch the killer and win Trace Callahan, the sexy but vulnerable sheriff. Trace has a hard time fighting his hormones, and mixing passion with his murder investigation threatens to compromise his squarejawed integrity. As is increasingly common, both lovers have been knocked around by life-a characteristic that provides another obstacle and opportunity for intimacy. Old-hand Ross (Legacy of Lies) follows all the usual trails, sometimes using clich�s to indicate thrills and chills instead of delivering the goods. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
