San Antonio FBI agent Garon Grier bought a ranch in Jacobsville, Texas in order to be closer to his estranged younger brother Cash. He is used to being alone, he even likes it, but he is in Jacobsville to mend ties between him and Cash. Falling for his shy attractive next door neighbor wasn‘t on the agenda but is welcome nonetheless. Any distraction from his current case is very welcome because hunting a wildly depraved child predator who has left clues behind wears on the heart and soul.
Grace Carver grew up in Jacobsville with her elderly grandmother. She doesn’t date and shies away from men because of a horrific tragedy when she was very young. She hears the emotional and physical scars and is resigned to spending her life alone until she meets Garon.
When a case of subzero feet causes Garon to cruelly push Grace away, only then does he realize what he had with her. At the same time a break in his investigation leads him to new information that could lead him to a killer. But this information also leads him to the last person he would expect – Grace.
Diana Palmer continues her connected series with her phenomenal new release Lawman. As always Diana’s incredible skill with words shines through. This book will make you laugh, cry, yell in frustration and cheer with happiness. I finished it in just a few hours and I bet you will, too. Likable characters and a strong plot don't hurt either.
