In Beartooth, Montana, land and family are everything. So when Destry Grant's brother is accused of killing Rylan West's sister, high school sweethearts Destry and Rylan leave their relationship behind in order to help their families recover from tragedy.
Years later, Destry is dedicated to her ranch and making plans for the future. Plans that just might include reuniting with the love of her life…until her brother returns to clear his name and the secrets of the past threaten her one chance at happiness.
Rylan is done denying his feelings for Destry. But when clues begin to link her brush with death to his sister's murder, will discovering the truth finally grant them their chance at love or turn them against one another for good?
Rylan West returns home after an 11-year absence following the murder of his sister. Destry Grant was the love of his life until her brother, Carson, was suspected to be the murderer. Now he’s returned, too, and all the questions and suspicions resurface.
This reads more like mystery/suspense with romantic elements as the romance didn’t develop until near the end. I had zero investment in Rylan and Destry’s relationship because it was too far in the background. However, I enjoyed the story for the mystery aspect as it kept me intrigued even though there weren’t many redeemable characters to hang my hat on.
I do plan to read the next book in the series.
I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
