When schoolteacher Catherine Fane travels to rural Kentucky to fulfill her guardian's last wishes by burying the woman's body near the cabin where she lived years before, she unwittingly stirs a sleepy town into an ugly fervor. Although Catherine wasn't a blood relation, kindly Annie Fane had taken her in after her parents were mysteriously murdered. But the superstitious townsfolk of Camarune used to consider Annie a witch, and they immediately apply the label to Catherine as well, menacing the schoolteacher's plan to stay in the isolated cabin while she tries to make sense of her life. Then she meets Luke DePriest, the area's sexy sheriff, who tries to protect her, all while hunting a thief who's been leaving strange wooden carvings in the place of the goods he steals. When a deranged farmer shoots Catherine in the back, the townsfolk are jolted back to their senses, Luke and Catherine are forced to confront their love for each other, and Catherine finally discovers the long-lost truth of her past...Publisher's Weekly at Amazon.com

I thought this book was very, very good. In fact, it was so good, that I am going to get other Dinah McCall/Sharon Sala books. Dinah McCall/Sharon Sala in now another favorite author for me. I also love her writing and the way she makes the characters come to life. Believe me, if you buy this book, you WON'T be sorry. It is excellent.
