“Lively and fast-paced… Curl up with Patricia Rice’s latest and hold your breath!” The Literary Times
From New York Times bestselling author Patricia Rice, her award-winning tale of love and mystery—
Learning of a plot to derail the vital software he’s developing, JD Marshall is on the run with his adolescent son, his computers, and his raw nerve. Forced off the road and injured in the middle of Nowheresville, KY, he’s left at the mercy of Nina Toon, an infuriatingly independent teacher who commands his formidable attention in dangerous ways.
Nina is equally unsettled by the Harley-riding stranger negotiating his way into her life. He claims to have the money to make her dreams of a botanical garden come true. But how can she trust a rugged charmer who’s brought a murderer to her quiet town?
Even worse, how can she not?
