Joslyn Kirk knows it will be difficult to move back to her home town. She had been raised the rich stepdaughter by a man who ended up swindling many people of their life savings. Returning years after a midnight run from the own, she wants to right the wrongs of her stepfather. Meeting up with Sheriff Slade Barlow, Joslyn is once again stuck by all that she has missed out in life trying to correct someone else's misdeeds.
Slade had always had a hard life. The unclaimed bastard of a rich man, he grew up in the shadow of his father. He had a younger half brother he could never acknowledge. An brief marriage and a fiesty stepdaughter added to the mix. Having Joslyn come back to town, he wanted to finally fulfill his own dreams.
A nice story. A little slow at times, but lots of people to meet. Well written.
