In Grady Gulch, Oklahoma teenager Jeffrey Lawrence calls 911 to report the murdered body of Dorothy Blake in her home. He explains to Sheriff Cameron Evans that he walks her dog every morning and has a key because she works nights at as a waitress at the Cowboy Café.

Cameron has been in love with the Cowboy Café owner, single mom Mary Mathis for eight years, but she refuses involvement with any man offering no reason though inside her heart she is attracted to Cameron. The sheriff ignores his attraction as he investigates three murders, with Dorothy the latest, linked to Cowboy Café but unaware of the motive. Filled with guilt over the three dead waitresses, Mary believes her violent past has come to haunt her present.

The latest Cowboy Café romantic suspense (see Cowboy With A Cause) is a thrilling romantic police procedural. The key to what is the final (and most anticipated) tale in the series is the relationship between the lead couple as each has looked forward to his close the café cup of coffee every night. The taut suspense has readers waiting for a confrontation between the sheriff and the café owner, and an unknown violent serial killer whose previous targets are calling cards to Mary.
