Sixteen years ago she lost both parents there-her mother to murder and her father to prison for the crime. Since then she's built a successful life, but she's never let go of the belief her father is incent. Now she's back in Petal to find the truth. With a new job and a mystery to solve, she's got plenty on her plate. But when she bumps into Royal Watson, the sparks fly hard and fast. When the whipsmart, opinionated lawyer blows into town like a beautiful storm, Royal has a reason to make the time to get off his organic farm and pursue her. And soon their intense attraction is tipping into something more. As Caroline's dogged investigation digs up ghosts of the past, there's t much time for basking in love's glow. The closer she gets to the truth, the more threatened the real killer gets...and the greater the danger that all her digging could lead to her own grave. Warning: Laid-back ranchers who are really sneak alpha males, tight butts in wranglers, and creative use of belts and buckles. Bad words, hot sex, and lots of pie-sometimes all at once.
