Wonderful plot about a young mother who has a near death experience and how it changed her life. Lots of sizzle and zing.
I just finished reading this, I enjoyed it completely. It caught my attention so completely in the first 2 pages. It is a modern day mystery that takes us to Montana, with some romance, and a couple good love scenes thrown in. I loved the whole rugged country, small town, pretty big city girl, and one handsome cowboy. Add a little mystery and bad guy miners who have way to much money and no thought past themselves. And I think we have a winner. It did have a bit of a predictable ending but it was also a no brainer to read which is what made it so enjoyable for me.
Thought it was good. Suspenseful with a nice bit of romance.
Great book with strong characters and a storyline that keeps things moving quite quickly. I really enjoy Kat Martin's books.
Was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I couldn't put it down once I began reading it.
Wounded in a drive-by shooting, L.A. advertising executive Kate Rollins has a near-death experience. In it, the grandmother she has never met, Nell Hart, struggles to communicate an urgent message. Haunted by the visitation, a failed marriage and a troubled son, Kate decides to escape to tiny Lost Peak, Mont. There she takes over the caf she has recently inherited from Nell and attempts to unearth the truth that her late grandmother so desperately wished to convey. Kate's investigation suggests that Nell may have been murdered, and her suspicions are confirmed when she discovers that her grandmother was being bullied by Consolidated Metals, the same shrewd gold-mining company that has been threatening Kate in order to halt her environmental efforts. Kate's biggest dilemma, however, is her neighbor Chance McLain, a sexy rancher who thrills her body and soul but is promised to another. The novel's premise--of a successful businesswoman lured to the wild west by a family legacy--appears in a spate of recent romances, but the environmental theme strikes a nicely contemporary note amid a hymn to traditional rural life. Despite its familiar plot, Martin's (Perfect Sin, etc.) story is solidly written, deftly balancing intense emotion with satisfying intrigue. (Mar.)Forecast: The face of the contemporary romance has shifted in the past decade, favoring wholesome country values over high-rise city life. Although Martin has only recently begun writing contemporaries again, she has made a name for herself with her popular historical suspense novels. With this return to the heartland, she is certain to enjoy bestselling sales once more.
A new beginning was her only wish... His name was Chance McLain. He was everything Kate Rolins doesn't want when she lands in Lost Peak, MT. She's come to change her life, to heal her child, to find herself..not another man with a sexy smile and an empty heart. She has a son to raise, a business to run, and a murder to solve.
Kat Martin's Romance Suspense Books are some of the best I've read. You will really enjoy this series.
Kat Martin has rapidly become one of my favorites. An interesting read with romance mixed in with suspense.
Lots of action, romance and sub-plots. Kat weaves an interesting story with life-like characters. It's hard to put down!
This is a classic Western Romance with a slightly supernatural twist. Kate had a near death experience which changed her life and landed her and her 12 year old son in Montana cowboy country where she re-opens a restaurant her grandmother owned, falls in love and searches for the answer to several haunting questions.
