Allegheny Green is a caregiver. She takes care of her mother (who creates troll dolls), an aunt (who is a channel for a cavewoman named Ung), a sister (who has a horrid taste in men) and her 8-year-old nephew Denny (who just needs love). On top of all that, she's a nurse. Her free time in nonexistent.

When dead bodies start turning up, Ally does what any self-respecting female would do at this point in her life--she takes control! This isn't easy, since she believes in doing everything on her own. But when Ally seeks help from the new sheriff in town, Sam Conahegg, sparks soon fly.

Romance fans will enjoy this story, told in the first person by Ally, a woman just about anyone can relate to. The remaining characters, a pretty good suspense plot and a few laugh-out-loud moments combine to form a well-rounded read. Wilde is a fun voice in romance. (Sep., 320 pp., $5.99)
