Kate Earnshaw’s family passes down painful riddles without answers, where secrets disappear from one generation to the next.


Kate’s father’s suicide has left many unanswered questions, including what to do with the abandoned family ranch on the eastern plains of Colorado and what t believe about Evan Hastings a neighbor who seems to have as many secrets as her father and knows more about him than she did. But there’s something about Evan that calls her back to her father’s home.


Something that threatens to unearth more than the past.

“A lesser author would have delivered a familiar, spunky-and-hunky romance between Kate and Evan, but Starbuck deepens their relationship and does it justice. She believably portrays exactly why Kate would be jealous, as well as how offensive her assumptions about country folk are. Both lovers have a lot to learn, and they do—and it’s no spoiler to reveal that they end up living happily ever after. An altogether satisfying romance and whodunit.” 

—Kirkus Reviews


“Starbuck has created memorable characters and writes in a way that shows the reader’s enjoyment is always foremost in her mind.” 


Thought this was the best book so far by Helen Starbuck. Like the Colorado setting/references. It was suspense filled and an interesting romance.” 

—Ann M. Rath, Amazon 5-Star Review

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Starbuck's characters are engaging and make you want to root for them. Intriguing plot with a satisfying ending. Altogether, a perfect read for a lazy weekend!
