Kasey Montgomery returns home to Fire Creek, Montana when she learns that her cousin, Beth, committed suicide. As Kasey looks at all the evidence, she realizes there are a lot of things that just don't make sense. The sheriff thinks it's her writers imagination and doesn't take her allegations seriously. Jimmy Little Raven has heard a lot about Kasey from Beth and feels like he already knows her. But he's even more impressed by her in person, as she displays strength and determination. Jimmy also has suspicions of foul play but doesn't have any evidence to back up his theory. Kasey tries to dig deeper and Jimmy tries to keep her out of trouble. Will they find the answers and evidence they're looking for before it's to late?
I'll start by saying that the cover totally grabbed my attention and made me long to read the story. What you'll find inside is a finely tuned romantic suspense. One that keeps you engaged from start to finish. You'll find yourself trying to figure out what happened right along with Kasey and Jimmy. Although you may guess who's behind it, you're never really sure until the end, where you see how it all played out. Kasey and Jimmy were both endearing characters. Kasey was very strong but had a sensitive heart. Jimmy Little Raven was a great guy. I loved his big smile and the way he handled things. Though Jimmy and Kasey are both believers, they struggle with the things they don't understand, just like you and me. Jimmy's son totally won my heart and I know he'll win yours too. What a cutie he was. Along with a great story, the author gives you a little taste of Native American history and folklore, which was really fun. If you're in the mood for a good romantic suspense, I highly recommend a trip to Fire Creek! Watch your step though, there have been a few 'accidents' lately!

Here is a little excerpt for you:
Kasey rounded the corner onto the street where she’d left her car. She stopped dead in her tracks at the sight of Jimmy Little Raven leaning against the hood of the Firebird, his arms folded across his chest.
It took several seconds to recover from her initial shock before she walked over to her car. "What are you doing here?"
"Never mind that. What were you doing in Woodward’s office?" he demanded.
She avoided his glare, as her mind raced to come up with a logical explanation. Lying was out of the question, not that it'd do any good anyway. He had no doubt seen her through the window, explaining the noise she heard.
"Do you realize how much trouble you could get into if anyone was to find out you broke into his office?"
"No one’s going to find out... unless you rat on me. Besides, I didn’t break in, I had a key."
Before she could answer, her breath was yanked violently from her lungs as he lifted her up and dove, with her in his arms, onto the hood of the Firebird. The sounds of crunching metal, breaking glass and squealing tires followed. The earth seemed to rumble beneath her as their bodies rolled together onto the hard cement below.
