Someone was lurking in the woods behind the isolated old cabins Janna McAllister was fixing up. Who was he? And what could he want with a single mother who hadn't set foot in Wyoming in years? Janna was suddenly grateful for her unexpected new lodgers: deputy sheriff Michael Robertson and his teenaged son. The strong, silent type, Michael made her feel safe—especially when human remains were found on the property. The cold case threatened to remain unsolved. Until Janna unwittingly found a clue that would tempt a killer to come out of the woodwork.
Roxanne Rustand, award-winning Harlequin Superromance writer is spreading her wings and stepping out into new territory with her latest book, Hard Evidence, the first book in the Snow Canyon Ranch trilogy, from Love Inspired Publishers. In Hard Evidence Roxanne brings us not only a suspenseful read which keeps the reader on her toes and wondering until the last moment who the "bad guy" is, but also a story of faith and redemption.
Janna and Michael, although drawn together and attracted to each other from their first meeting, have issues from their past that make it difficult for them to consider becoming anything more than friends. The danger that draws them together threatens not only them and their newly blossoming relationship, but their children as well.
Roxanne has drawn some wonderful characters, from the grandmother who is in the beginning stages of Alzheimers (not to mention denial) to the children of the main characters. Each has their own voice and presence in the book and I'm looking forward to seeing more of them in the upcoming sequels.
I'm looking forward to next year, when I can discover more about this family, their hidden secrets, and the faith that sustains them through it all.
