Kelsey Heston is more than just a pretty face. There’s a whip-smart brain behind those model-beautiful looks. She’s been running the family’s Kentucky horse farm, but now plans to use those brains to improve the tourist trade at her grandfather’s Montana dude ranch. But tangled accounting books aren’t the only complication Kelsey has to deal with. What is her old college sweetheart, Max Lee, doing here? The man who’d broken her heart when he’d put family duty before her. Had Kelsey made a mistake coming to Ghost Mountain Ranch?
Chicago lawyer Max Lee has always done what was expected of him. He’d gone to law school, worked at the same firm as his father, and married the law partner’s daughter, just as it had been planned since their childhood. His only aberration had been his beautiful college sweetheart, the girl he’d dropped to follow his family expectations. But after the sudden death of Max’s wife, his father-in-law makes one more request of Max: go to Ghost Mountain Ranch to find his long-lost sister. But his search for one woman turns up another he’d never expected to see again, maybe the only woman he’d ever truly loved.
But something dark is happening at Ghost Ranch, where the past is reaching out in dangerous ways to haunt the living. Max is not only stirring up old feelings in Kelsey, but old secrets of the ranch’s inhabitants. Secrets someone might be willing to kill to keep. Can they finally lay the old ghosts to rest, or will the echoes of a decades-old murder destroy their second chance at love?
