Not much happens in Adams Grove, Virginia, where the worst crime to hit the small town in a decade was hunters bagging too many deer. So when word gets out about a break-in over at Pearl Clemmons’s place, the townsfolk go on high alert, locking their doors and firing up the rumor mill.
Pearl’s granddaughter Jill certainly has enough on her plate, what with tending to Pearl’s estate and coming face-to-face with sexier-than-sin Garrett Malloy. Also known as: The Man Who Broke Her Heart. But now that she has to contend with no-count thieves, everyone agrees she can use all the help she can get. Somebody thinks Pearl had something worth stealing, and it’s clear they’ll stop at nothing to get it — even if it means hurting Jill.
Now, with Garrett’s help, Jill just might have a chance of unearthing Pearl’s secrets…as well as her own deep, conflicted desire for her ex. Garrett may have been the last man Jill wanted to see, but now, she may not want to let him go.
