Mari Beth leaves her job as a court reporter and her latest failed love affair, jumps in the car, and goes, unannounced, to New Eden, MT, to join her best pal for a few weeks of R&R. When she arrives, she finds the house trashed, her friend dead, and the natives less than friendly. Something about her friend's death is not right, and Mari keeps probing for information. She gets bopped, bashed, and generally mistreated by everyone in New Eden, and this makes her more suspicious. In discovering what really happened to her friend, she also uncovers the deepest secrets of a most unsavory bunch of immoral and unlawful interlopers from Hollywood. Hoag's book is a true romance novel, complete with foolhardy feats of daring, passions simmering just below the surface, and rescue from the brink of death by the strong, handsome hero. Although it is well read by Joyce Bean, the story is less than compelling.

A great mystery with lots of twists and turn, and some romance thrown into boot. One of Tami's best, I think.

I really enjoyed this book. It drew me in right from the beginning with a murder mystery, then developed into an interesting (and I must say satisfyingly slightly smutty!) love story involving a cowboy and a court reporter in Wyoming. But I'm not doing the story justice....this has really well-drawn out characters that engage and surprise. This book is a thumbs up for sure!

I bought this Audio book for a 5 hour trip I had to make. The story was suspenseful, with some romance thrown in. Not what I usually read, but I liked it! My first Tami Hoag book.

Good use of the Montana background and the conflict between the come-heres and the been-heres, but a little too romance-y and slick for my taste. Hoag's heroines tend to be tougher and more complex than this one, and her resolutions are usually more open-ended.

Romantic Suspense- more of the romance, but in a good way. If you like long, well detailed books then this is for you. Definitely one of my favorite Hoag books- couldn't put it down! Marilee is in Montana trying to solve her friend's murder. She hooks up with cowboy J.D. and it all comes together in the end.

A murder mystery set in Montana. The usual cast of handsome cowboys, mysterious business owners and colorful western characters. What makes this a bit different is the story line. NOT the typical who done it. This best selling author has a good sense of humor. She will have you rolling on the floor laughing and then have goose bumps crawling up your back on the next page. A must read!

More of a romance novel than a suspense novel in my opinion, but is still a good read! Ex-court-reporter Marilee sets out to uncover the puzzle behind her friend's mysterious death in New Eden, Montana. Along the way she meets handsome but brooding J.D. Rafferty, a local rancher. But someone has stake in silencing her suspicions, and has the power and money to do it. Her only hope of staying alive is to unravel the truthh.

A good thriller which takes place in Montana...almost like an oxymoron. Marilee comes to visit her friend in Montana to start her life over and finds her friend Luce has been shot to death "accidently." Things continue to happen: three more murders, love, Vietnam vet with flashbacks to the war, big time illegal hunting. Every page makes you want to read faster.

Court reporter Marilee Jennings quits her job and decides to make a surprise trip to Montana to visit her best friend, Lucy. When she arrives, she finds her best friend is dead and most of the town's people have nothing nice to say about Lucy, especially Rancher J.D. Rafferty. When Lucy's will leaves everything to Mari, including a letter that contains vague clues to her murder, Mari starts asking questions that might get her killed.

I enjoyed this romantic suspense book and was a bit surprised by the identity of the killer. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

Tami Hoag is now seen as a suspense writer along the lines of Sidney Sheldon. But before she wrote romantic suspense/thrillers. This is one of the best.

A thriller/suspense book with romance too. It has enough romance to keep the "Romance" fans reading & not too much to have the Mystery buffs running away. I found just enough of both genres to keep me glued to the pages. Tami Hoag is definitely an author worth reading.
