Palmer presents a skillfully written story about two emotionally scarred
people and their journey to healing through love. A number of characters from previous stories appear, and this novel is more enjoyable if readers are familiar with them. Though entertaining, this book covers too much ground in too little time.
Exiled to Jacobsville for her own protection, assistant district attorney Gloryanne, who suffers from hypertension and is at risk for a heart attack, moves back to her childhood farm
and meets farm manager Rodrigo Ramirez, who is working undercover for the DEA.
As Glory and Rodrigo are drawn to one another, they fight their attraction, each knowing that the other is hiding something. (HQN, Jun., 384 pp., $24.95 )
