Andie has got another mystery to solve. Zac’s life is on the line and the clues are years in the past clouded by pain and confusion. When Zac’s old friends show up in Bushwhack, Andie realizes that a current case he is working on has ties that go back to his college years, but is rooted in their own small community.
The story is told partly in flashback as andie tries to remember what she may have missed the first time around. We get to meet Zac and Andie at the beginning when they begin to realize there is more to their relationship. It is interesting to see the dynamic between the two of them change and the contrast to the present.
It is a short but sweet read, set against the beautiful background of the New Mexico mountains. While the mystery is more about getting to know how the main characters have to come to this place in their lives, the big bad was an interesting twist. It is a great addition to the series.
I received an advance review copy for free through Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours, and I am leaving this review voluntarily
