In Texas, Stuart Hayden Crestwood III was leaving his third wife Laura Duncan Crestwood because she cannot deliver him the heir to the family fortune. When the divorce is final, Stuart will marry his next wife, Charlene. To insure that there will be no frivolous law suits, especially from Laura, Stuart has the family fortune of nine million buried in a Cook Island trust fund. Laura manages to grab some of his money in a questionable manner before vanishing into the night.
Four years later in the farthest area within the remote Kootenai National Forest in Montana, wealthy Adam Scott lives a reclusive life as he recovers from the accident that killed his wife and child. He goes through therapists like Yogi Bear goes through picnic baskets. Laura Duncan is the latest victim to arrive on the scene to work on his shoulder. As the difficult Adam and the secretive Laura begin to work together in close proximity, they fall in love. However, she was burned once by a wealthy male and the accident that nearly destroyed his life turns out to a deliberate act perpetrated by an unknown assailant who plans to complete the job.
UNDER MONTANA SKIES is an entertaining romantic suspense novel starring two scarred individuals. The story line is exciting as Adam and Laura struggle against their attraction for each other. The contrast between the serenity of the national park and her ex and the killers add to the wonderful feel of the tale. Big Sky country and several locals provide color that makes readers believe they are in a remote section of the state. Darlene Graham takes her audience on a fabulous journey that readers of regional romances and intrigue will abundantly relish.
