Unemployed Chicago historian Marci Sky isn’t looking forward to bridesmaid duty at her old friend’s Washington State mansion. Her deceased movie star grandmother was born in the area though, and she’s always wanted to solve the mystery surrounding her grandmother’s youth.
Rick Kinslee is best man at his cousin’s wedding. He’d rather focus on propping up his troubled company, but is distracted by the beautiful out-of-town visitor. When she, lonely and very attracted to him, offers him a one-night stand, he eagerly takes her up on it. Though she’s as sexy as hell, he soon has reason to be suspicious of Marci’s true motives in pursuing him.
But Marci is targeted in several minor crimes and soon the stakes are escalating. Could the Kinslee family have been involved in Marci’s grandmother’s tragedy? Can Marci find a new family and love after being set adrift from her former life? Lives and futures are at stake at Gunshot Grange.a
