In her latest book, Thunder At Dawn, author Jill Gregory takes readers back to Thunder Creek Wyoming. Life in the small town is undergoing some changes as Zach McCallum is in town building a major branch of his corporation, and leasing part of his land to a camp for underprivileged kids.
The town is divided about his camp plans and leading the fight against the camp is Wood Morgan, and his wife Tammy who want the camp site for their own purposes.
It is this discord around the town that Faith Barclay finds when she arrives for an extended vacation from her job as an assistant district attorney. She’s recently had two cases that didn’t end with the justice she so firmly believes in that she’s decided she needs to get away to regain her perspective, and perhaps even rethink her career path.
Thunder Creek is like a second home to her. Her brother Ty is the local sheriff. Her family has a cabin out on the secluded Blue Mesa and she’s always felt safe and at home there.
Quiet, serene Thunder Creek is about to be a hot bed of activity. Wood will stop at almost nothing to get the land he wants from Zach, and one of the people involved in one of Faith’s cases is stalking her. Will the people who are closest to Faith and Zach be safe? What about the people of Thunder Creek who aren’t as close to them?
Ms. Gregory has merged several suspenseful story lines into one cohesive, compelling, page-turning novel. I believe that readers who are fans will be one hundred percent satisfied when they close the book, and readers who are just discovering Ms. Gregory will find themselves haunting bookstores looking for her backlist.
