Bringing a tracking dog to town
put her in a killer’s sights

Inheriting a ranch is a fresh start for Emma Pierce, her baby and her search-and-rescue dog—until someone tries to kill her.

But Sheriff Reed Atkinson won’t let anyone hurt his first love…especially when they uncover a connection to his vanished sister.

Can Reed solve both cases before he loses his sister and the woman he’s falling for all over again?


Beyond the windshield, Emma could see the lights of her home winking through the trees. Her daughter would be asleep now, nestled in her bed, along with her stuffed lamb. Should they leave town? Abandon Helping Paws? The idea was gut-wrenching but there was more to consider than just herself. She had a daughter to protect.

Lord, please give me strength and guidance. Tell me what I’m supposed to do.

Reed squeezed her hand and she interlocked her fingers with his. A simple gesture and yet it brought her comfort. She wasn’t in this alone.

Have faith. It was easy during good times. So much harder in the darker ones. Life was testing her, throwing curveballs she hadn’t expected, but Emma had moved to Heyworth for a reason. She believed God was leading her. Maybe, just maybe, He’d sent Reed to help her through it. The headlights picked up an object sailing through the night. It landed on the road in front of them. Emma blinked. Was that…a grenade?

“Reed!” she shouted.

He swerved. Emma’s head slammed into the side of the SUV. A bright light preceded the sound of exploding glass. Then they were tumbling over and over.

Everything went black.
