Heatherlee Baronova is a widow, a mother of twins, and a business owner. When her deceased husband’s partner shows up demanding a key to a safe deposit box, she knows there is more to her husband than she thought.
Marc Duarte is sheep rancher who somehow got roped into being the temporary sheriff. When there is a 9-1-1 call about a breaking and entering, he rushes to the rescue of a beautiful woman.
After taking her statement, Marc spends the night on the couch, determined to make Heatherlee feel safe and secure. When additional information is presented about Heatherlee’s husband’s background, Marc knows there is more than meets the eye. He knows that no matter how attracted to her he is, he must rein in his passion for someone who could be endangered by a crime.
A Key to all that Glitters had a slow start, and I did not get interested until about midway through the book. While I found Ms. Rowland to be entertaining for part of the story, it took a while to catch my interest. Parts of the novel felt as if I needed to read a previous story to understand them. The novel does get better midway through, and we get to see the attraction build between Marc and Heatherlee. While not the best book in the world, it still has some good qualities to make it a nice read.
