Dallas Rowen has had a string of unbelievably bad luck. His apartment was broken into, and he lost a good chunk of his things, then he lost his job. He's down to his last few dollars, leaning against the wall of a detective agency when he's found by an older woman, Ellen Grady. She doesn't ask who she was, she just utters the words, "I need your help." She just assumed that Dallas was a private eye. He tries to explain, but she tells him that she prayed and the Lord told her that she is going to be able to help her. Ellen's grandson, Jerry Grady was driving his car in a demolition derby when he died. The death was all over the news, but what wasn't reported was that Jerry was killed, not by the demolition derby, but by a bullet to the head. Now Ellen wants Dallas to track down the killer, but things are already getting dangerous. First Ellen, then Dallas are threatened that if they keep poking around into Jerry's death, they'll be next. Dallas knows that he must protect Ellen and her cute and spunky granddaughter, Alexandra, from Jerry's killers, in order to do that he must find the killer. And fast.
I love reading books by Clair Poulson. These books are a bit romantic, but they are completely clean. His plots are always intriguing. I really enjoyed his characters. I also like that they are always set here in Utah. If you're in the mood for a slightly romantic, great mystery this book is for you!
