Women, funerals, guns, and rattlesnakes. What could go wrong?
Jill O'Hara, award-winning journalist and inveterate egotist, is about to find out. When Jill is summoned to her hometown Prairie View, Montana, to bury her father and clean up his messes, she assumes a few tedious days of signing papers and delegating responsibilities will complete her obligations. But Jill's duties as Dean O'Hara's daughter soon become less mundane and more menacing. To complicate matters, Jill's first love, Annie Doyle, lives in Prairie View and despite Annie's blistering past betrayal, Jill still desires her. Fortunately, Sheriff Rae Terabian, a woman with a uniform, power, and shady associates, deliciously distracts Jill from her obsession with Annie.
Amidst her customary confusion over women, Jill is forced to confront her father's treacherous legacy, battle the extremes of the northern Montana wilds, and face down survivalists bent on silencing her. Despite the remote location and severe peril, she discovers the possibility for one more chance at love.
