Determined to solve a murder, Deputy Sheriff Holt Tanner uses any means possible, even blackmailing Molly Brewster into helping him. As clues begin to surface, so do feelings between the MONTANA LAWMAN (3) and the shy librarian. But when Holt discovers that Molly is keeping a dark secret, he wonders if it has to do with murder. Although Allison Leigh's mystery element would have carried more weight with less transparent clues, readers will delight in the way Molly reacts to Holt—like a flower to sunshine.
