Molly Madison’s life is shattered with the sudden death of her beloved parents and the revelation of her husband Phillip’s affair—with another man. Molly heads west to Montana, resolved to run the family ranch, the Ghost Bear, and to move on with her life. Her attraction to Clayton Leatherbe, the ranch foreman, is instant, but before a romance can blossom, the ranch falls prey to sabotage by wealthy land developers determined to drive Molly out, and Clayton learns of a family secret that could put the ranch—and Molly’s life—in jeopardy. A sharp mystery that deals with the themes of family secrets, betrayal, love, and loss, Once Wicked Always Dead is a strong debut from an author with literary blood in her veins.
My Rating: 4 out of 5
All in all this was a good read. I do have to say the flow in so areas is off and some descriptions are a little long winded. The story line was creative however and there were plenty of twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat until the end. And I absolutely loved the ending. I also can't wait to read more from this author and see how she develops her writing!
