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.

One of her best, in my opinion

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.
