Alec Hayes thinks his life has ended since the death of the only woman he has ever loved. Finally, he has his life under control. But then he is shocked to find that his best friend, Jared Wright, has been brutally murdered.
With Jared's fiance coming in on the stage two days later, and a gang of desperate criminals on the loose, Alec is running out of time to bring the leader to the law.
Ariella, Jared's fiance, is crushed to find the man she was going to marry, is dead. Determined to find out what is going on, Ariella heads out to Jared's cabin. The scene of his horrific death.
Unconsciously following close on her heels, the leader of the gang is trying to discover how to deal with the situation he's found himself in.
Can Alec find a way to save Ariella before the trap closes on her? Does the US Marshall, Oscar Lewis have anything to do with Ariella's future happiness? And can Alec discover the Life and learn to love again?
Set in the mountains of Georgetown, Colorado, this book is a great children's book. Especially for anyone who loves the west, and the men and women who peopled it.
I look forward to seeing more books coming from this author.
