very good book. part of a series.
Sable Barclay was a criminologist. While doing some forensic testing she stumbled onto the major possibility that she was the lost Langtry baby. She took time off work to travel to Shiloh, Wyoming to quietly investigate. Her life long best friend, Eden, went with her for support. Soon Sable was in a relationship with Faith and Jacob Langtry's ranch foreman, Culley Blackwolf. As Sable slowly came to terms with both sets of parents, she also began helping Culley deal with his own difficult past.
Eden Eglantine was a paleontologist. As she helped Sable reunite with her biological parents, she spent time with Sable's biological brother, Roark Langtry, looking for the bonebeds of dinosaurs. Eden understood that Roark wanted her, but not WHY. Her own parents cared nothing for her and her brother, Piers, was cruel. Piers took credit for all Eden's work and kept he on a short leash! If Eden gave into her feelings for Roark, Piers would harm Roark, Sable, and the entire Langtry family!
But the Langtry family had a special heritage of some golden coins. Their ancestors watched over them. Sable and Eden were about to learn that the Langtry family protected their loved ones!
**** This was like two stories in one! Two women in two difficult romances with two difficult men! Whew! If that was not enough to keep me busy, the author continued (and concluded) a sub-plot from a previous book, titled "It Happened At Midnight", of the kidnapped Langtry baby years before and the reunion once she was grown! I was delighted to read of so much happening at once! Wonderful story that I highly recommend! ****
