Erskine, Montana, is a magnet for eccentric folks. But for Deputy Sheriff Clarence Beeber, it's his town, his people and he'll do everything he can to keep them safe. So when big-city psychiatrist Ellie Reed shows up with her multipierced teenage brother, Clary's not happy. Because suddenly everyone in town is lining up to get Ellie's advice, and it's doing more harm than good.
Clary would like Ellie to keep her medical diagnoses and opinions to herself, and he might know just the way.... Ellie has a secret and if he can figure out what it is, her days in Erskine may be numbered. Only, he's starting to fall for her...and that's the craziest part of all.
