In USA Today–bestselling author Patricia Potter’s spellbinding romantic thriller, the family a young woman never knew she had could be the most dangerous people she will ever meet
One fateful fall afternoon in Arizona, a man confronts his unfaithful wife and treacherous brother. The day ends in violence and unspeakable tragedy. Nearly half a century later, Atlanta bookstore owner Jessica Clayton receives an invitation to the reunion of a family she never knew she had. Abandoned by her mother when she was a baby, Jessica grew up only knowing a father’s love. Now it turns out her entire life may have been a lie.
At a sprawling ranch in Sedona, Jessica meets the Clements clan. Could they be her long-lost family? Before she has time to find out, she learns that one of them wants her dead. Unsure of whom to trust, she turns to another outsider, Ross Macleod, the ranch’s foreman and the Clements’ part–Native American adopted son. But she’s running out of time. History is about to repeat itself, making Jessie heir to a deadly legacy of greed, betrayal, and murder—and a love that could cost her everything.
