Silver Matlock is desperate to save her family, no matter the cost to her already tarnished reputation. Jared Newman would much rather just travel on his own to find the man who murdered his family and bring him to justice. Both need to learn to trust each other to reach their goals.
This was a sweet story. Silver Matlock is an endearing character, and you hope that she finds what she is looking for through this adventure. Jared Newman has such a tough exterior until we start to learn about what drives him and who he really is. Both main characters are so likeable, and through the course of the novel, the reader can really see how each character evolves.
The plotline was quite interesting as well. There were a number of unexpected twists and surprises that came up. However, it did feel a bit slow at times as a majority of it takes place while Silver and Jared are on the trail, and most of the action seems to happen in a town. The novel has a bit of mystery to it, as we wonder who they will catch up to first: Silver’s ex-fiance who stole from her family or the man Jared suspects murdered his family.
The novel was quite different from Robin Lee Hatcher’s other novels. This one isn’t one that I would necessarily be quick to pick up again, but it had enough to it that I wanted to continue reading it to find out what happens.
