One morning before she opens the library in Split Creek, Oklahoma, Paige notices a strange car – and then her carefully controlled quiet life begins a downward spiral.
Who is Paige Rogers and what is she hiding? The sweet librarian with a generous heart and a talent for baking has said no to Miles Laird’s flirting for some time, and he can’t figure out why.
Gubernatorial candidate Dennis Keary has started harassing Paige after several years of leaving her alone. Why is he suddenly interested in her help with his campaign?
Miles is a football coach – and a good one. He’s planning to take the team to the championship this year, but first he must smooth over the ruffled feathers and stop the fights within the team. He’s fighting for the championship, and he’s fighting for his job. At the same time, he’s worried about Paige. Nothing like pressure on all sides to stir up ulcer problems.
A few of Paige’s secrets are threatening to surface, and she’ll do whatever it takes to keep that from happening. She can’t allow anyone to help her since she can’t bear to see her friends get hurt. And she knows they will get hurt if they become entangled in the mess she’s in. In the beginning, her life as the small-town librarian is uneventful. Then something happens to allow Miles into her private nightmare. She’s ex-CIA and always on the lookout for clues that her former life has caught up with her.
DiAnn Mills has outdone herself. This is her best book yet. I enjoyed the suspense and the questions that kept coming up. I was impressed by the sacrifices Paige went through. I won’t list those moments here; it’s more fun to find out as you read. This book kept me happily involved in the twists and turns until the end.
