When Sheriff Clay Starke asks Nathan Williams to help him out on a case, he agrees. Nathan is a DEA Agent and he's been out on leave after being shot, Starke asks him to run surveillance on Becca Price, because they suspect that she may be involved with a drug smuggling ring.
Becca runs a riding stable, and is recovering from a back injury she received when a horse threw her. She is surprised to hear from Nathan whom she hasn't heard from since she was 17, but when he offers to help out, she is happy to give him a job at the stable. Becca loves horses and wants to share her joy with others especially with children with special needs. Running the stables has been her dream, she left her job as a doctor to run the stables, but now the rumors of involvement with a drug ring has hurt her business and she is barely making ends meet. Lately she's been dealing a series of attacks targeting her, and she can't think of who would be after her, or why.
I really liked Brody Mac, he works for Becca, and is very gifted with the horses. He has some developmental delays, and her stays at Becca's bunkhouse when his father is in town because his father is cruel to him. He's a dear and vulnerable man, not everyone can see what Becca sees in him, a very sweet man.
As Nathan get's closer to Becca, he doesn't want to believe that she is involved with the drug ring, and he wants more than anything to help protect her from the attacks as they escalate. Nathan doesn't like that he hasn't been fully honest with her about why he's there, and he wants to be the kind of person that she can depend on.
I love how Becca holds to her faith, follows her dream and reaches out to others. She is great at keeping her head in the midst of danger. I loved the fast pace of the book, packed with action, and a mystery to solve. Nathan is a great hero, he stands by Becca, and offers support throughout. A fantastic read from beginning to end!
