Midwife Kelly Evans left Austin where she practiced for three years due to an ugly divorce. She joins a practice in Valiant, Colorado when her friend Serena Bellows invites her though Kelly plans to stay for only a few months until she emotionally moves passed the divorce.

Kelley happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when architect Samuel Spencer dies, but not before he tells her his last words, which made no sense to her. The police believe Samuel committed suicide but his nephew Nick thinks otherwise especially after a loan shark tells him of a deal involving gold with his late uncle. While someone stalks Kelly, she teams up with Nick investigating what happened to Samuel and whether the family’s wealth is in jeopardy. However, as she leads a Lamaze class, adversaries take her students hostage.

This is an exciting romantic suspense from the moment Kelly meets a dying Samuel until the final incredible climax. Action-packed, readers will relish the romance between the playboy and the midwife, but it is the taut intrigue that makes Cassie Miles’ latest Midwife intrigue (see Montana Midwife and Mommy Midwife) a terrific thriller.
