Only a city girl would think her secret safe in a small town.
When bakery owner Harlie Cates escaped her abusive husband in Seattle she thought Angel Beach, Oregon was the perfect hiding place. Then Clay Masterson moved in next door. She isn’t looking for love. She doesn’t even date. And she doesn’t want a country music superstar tossing her into his spotlight. So, why can’t she stay away from him?
Clay Masterson isn’t in town for the chowder. He’s searching for his supposedly dead father, who was accused of murder in Montana, and the grapevine says he’ll find him near Angel Beach. If Clay finds him, he’ll thank him for being an exemplary father for the ten minutes he spent at it, and alert the authorities. Harlie offers to help, believing Clay’s motivation is love, not vengeance.
But Clay isn’t the only one searching for his father. Someone knows who committed the murder and knows Harlie’s secret too. He plans to clean up these problems, once and for all. Two, or maybe three, birds with one stone.
