Over a decade ago in Beartooth, Montana, someone viciously murdered Ginny West. Everyone assumes Carson Grant killed her in a violent fit of passion as they had recently ended their relationship. Though he insisted he was innocent and grieving the death of his beloved, and no concrete evidence proving he committed the homicide, Carson leaves town with a cloud over his head. His sister Destry and Ginny’s brother Rylan end their relationship to focus on helping their respective families heal from the tragedy as she defends her sibling and he believes her brother killed his sister.

Over the years since the trauma, Destry concentrates on her family ranch while Rylan like Carson left town. When new evidence surfaces, Carson returns home from exile to prove he did not murder Ginny. Rylan also comes home as he never forgot his Destry.

This is an entertaining Big Sky romantic suspense in which the investigation of a violent murder eleven years ago may have gone cold, but its grip on the townsfolk remains powerful. The storyline is fast-paced and the setting beautiful. However, none of the key players feel fully developed beyond the impact of Ginny’s death on their relationships. Still readers will enjoy learning whether Carson killed his sweetheart.
