West Texas gossip paints every story a more interesting shade, especially when a married man goes missing with a small-town banker’s wife and a stolen fortune. Susan Maddox is tired of feeling like an abandoned woman, and even angrier when neighbors insist she’s the one getting away with murder. Maybe her handsome-as-sin, bad-boy brother-in-law isn’t the smartest choice of an ally, especially since she’s never been able to forget a star-studded night in his convertible back in high school. But who else can she trust to recover damning information from her husband’s crashed hard drive? Who else can pick up the pieces when intruders set fire to her home, a truck runs her off the road, and a trail of dead men stops her cold? Who else will help her uncover a fatal error?

Colleen Thompson lives in the Houston area with her husband, son, and two rescue dogs that keep life interesting. A former teacher, Colleen lives, breathes, and dreams books, and shares this obsession with like-minded friends whenever possible.From Booklist:
High-school science teacher Susan Maddox is at the mercy of her small hometown of Clementine, Texas, after her popular husband runs away with the banker's wife and embezzled money from his car dealership and the bank. The school board, headed by her vindictive mother-in-law, wants to fire Susan, and the only person willing to help her is her renegade brother-in-law, Luke. He has a successful computer business, but in the eyes of the town and his mother he will never be more than the reckless wild youth he was in high school when Susan shared one night of passion with him. She now needs him to help her retrieve data from her husband's crashed hard drive because she doesn't trust the police and has nowhere else to turn as it becomes clear that she may lose more than her job. Luke desperately wants to help her and prove that he has changed. Thompson has written a first-class work of romantic suspense. Patty Engelmann
