A young widowed bed and breakfast owner, Cate Nightengale, and her twin four-year-old sons, who have escaped memories and the high cost of living in Seattle, by moving to a tiny outpost in Idaho. The reader meets the family three years after the move and Cate seems to be making a life, albeit a tentative one, for herself and her sons. Enter a mysterious bed and breakfast guest, who departs via his bedroom window, leaving all of his luggage behind, and starts a chain of events that leaves Cate -- and the entire town -- under siege. Several of the Idaho townspeople are not whom they seem to be, including Cal, the seemingly shy handyman. Before the final pages, many of them will have their skill, their will, and their tenaciousness tested.

Unlike the previous three comments I absolutely loved this book. Great story as always from Ms Howard.

After reading Up Close and Dangerous, I was disappointed in this book. I found it hard to get into, just slow to start and I didn't even finish it!!

Horrible and ridiculous. I try every Linda Howard to see if she's writing "like she used to" but she doesn't cut it with this one.
