Jo Powers has lived a hard life, her husband was convicted of murdering his step-brother when she was pregnant with their son, and promptly divorced her. Since then she's been a single mother, and put herself through school to be a veterinarian. She loves working with animals and is grateful to be able to work for the local rodeo, which happens to be owned and operated by her new fiance Lance. One evening after the rodeo, Jo heads to her truck to leave and is startled to find a scary looking injured man with a gun inside. He orders her to leave the crowded area and it's not until she's almost home that she realizes that the man is her ex-husband Faulkner escaped from prison. She wants nothing more than to turn him in as soon as he is fixed up, but his story about her father coming to visit him and believing that he was innocent right before he died stops her in her tracks. What if her father, Faulkner's step-brother, and his mother were all murdered...and by the same person. Jo knows that she can't turn Faulkner in before she's figured out for sure what's been happening. But will she herself live long enough to figure it out?

This book had me hooked from the very beginning. I love the way that Kathi Oram Peterson writes. I felt like I was right there in Swan Valley, Idaho, it probably helped that I had been there before! I also felt as though Jo could have been a close friend, her problems mattered to me. This book is full of action, adventure and suspense. I wasn't able to guess who the killer was before it was revealed in dramatic fashion. I really loved this one!

I was sent an e-copy by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
