Crazy, intense story. I thought it would be just a normal mail order bride story of coming to the west, finding the husband she wrote to, and boom—romance blossoms. But no, there is some nasty business going on in the town of Come-by-Chance, Montana. When Emily escapes Chicago after witnessing a murder, she thinks nothing worse can happen. She is sooooo wrong. I won’t be a spoil-sport, but just know, nothing is as it seems…and keeping secrets is never a good option. But to an innocent girl fresh off the train with no one else in the world to love or watch out for her, secrets bind her. There is a romance in this, but it comes after wading through a lot of muck. Poor Emily triumphs in the end, but there are other side characters I’m dying to know about now whose lives didn’t tie up into happy bows at the end of this one.

Cheryl Cowtan Hey Charissa, I was also surprised by the dark undercurrent in this book.

Yeah, it shook me a little. Wasn't expecting it, but it sure added tension.
