Hallie is distressed that her stepfather, savvy police officer Lou, has been murdered, and she doesn't believe it was a simple burglary gone wrong, as claimed by her ex-husband, Joel, the District Attorney. Hallie investigates and finds evidence of a massive drug operation involving high-ranking police officers and her ex-husband. Now in danger, she and her twin daughters leave Phoenix and her restaurant business, and head to parts unknown in Lou's ancient pickup truck. When it breaks down in Primrose Creek, Nevada, Hallie and the girls enter the Last Chance Cafe and find both refuge and Chance Qualtrough. Chance, a rancher who rescues horses, wants to help the family even though he senses that Hallie is running from something. Hallie wants to stay, but she knows that Lou's murderers want her dead. Miller dips her toe into the popular pool of romantic suspense, creating an entertaining story that will please new fans while paying homage to old ones by updating her popular historical Primrose Creek series.
