Maddie Dupree is a successful author of true crime books. Her life has been colored by the murder of her mother twenty nine years before. It is time for her to write that story, so she travels to the town of Truly where it all happened.

Mick Hennessy’s life was also deeply affected by the events of that night. He lost both of his parents and the town talked about it for years. He got out as soon as he could, but returned and is now a successful businessman. Maddie is everything he ever dreamed of in a woman, but her book could tear his family’s lives apart once again.

Maddie travels to Truly, Idaho to exorcise the demons of her childhood and find out what really happened the night her mother was murdered. Mick Hennessy, and her attraction for him, is a complication that she did not foresee and she is not sure she can handle her feelings for him.

I have always loved Ms. Gibson’s work and this series in particular. My one complaint is that I had to wait so long to read it and I do not know how I am going to wait for the next one. Maddie is a complex character whose traumatic childhood really scarred her. Her only long term relationships are with her three best friends in Boise. It takes courage for her to return to the scene of her mother’s death, and I can understand how hard it was for her to tell the Hennessy family who she was. Naturally that leads to lots of great drama. The populace of quirky Truly is at their best in this book, it is an interesting little place. The other characters are very well done and it is nice to visit again with characters from previous books. Maddie and Mick have a tempestuous but very hot relationship and the love scenes are great. This book is definitely going on my keeper shelf with the rest of Ms. Gibson’s books.
