Description from Amazon.com:
Just how far are people willing to go to keep their secrets? Protecting the citizens of Beartooth, Montana, is never an easy job. It’s been one year, and Sheriff Dillon Lawson still feels guilty that he couldn’t save his twin brother, Ethan. But the biggest test of his bravery comes when Tessa Winters arrives, claiming to be pregnant…with Ethan’s baby. At first, Dillon can’t decide if this beautiful woman is a con artist or a victim. If Ethan didn’t die in that car crash, then where is he—and why is he hiding? Now, Dillon is prepared to do anything to uncover the truth—anything except admit his growing feelings for Tessa. But with violence threatening, Tessa and Dillon must trust in each other to save not only themselves…but also Tessa’s unborn child.
I had only read one other book by this author, Crime Scene At Cardwell Ranch, but I liked it so I thought that I would like this one as well. It was just not for me. I just could not engage with Tessa or Dillon and the plot did not engage my interest either. The romance was almost non-existant. The side story with Nettie and Frank was okay. This author writes well that is why I gave it 3-stars, but this book was flat for me.
