Full Blurb

An uneventful move to Montana left Rachel Brackett caught off guard by all the Rockies could offer: adventures, new friends, beautiful scenery ... and nightmares.

A mysterious family legacy leads Rachel into the forests of the Bitterroot Mountains, only to find that some things are best left alone. Rachel wanted a calm life to allow deep wounds time to repair. Instead, she stumbles on a riddle contained in her big house, science used for all the wrong reasons, and creatures only special effects experts could make up.

As she dives deeper into her heritage, Rachel must decide if she'll be destroyed or stand on her own two feet and fight.

Sneak Peek at Chapter One

Rachel Brackett watched road signs and mile markers blur past through a haze of tears. She could run for years and
never find an escape from relentless memories, pain, and sadness. Never give an
explanation for the relief or excitement, or the confusion born from the messy
concoction. If anyone knew what brewed inside of her, they’d think she was crazy. Or worse.

Someday, Rachel thought, I might be able to get the emotions under control … but not today.

For now, she only wanted to run.

Rachel pushed a button to open the driver’s side window. Fresh mountain air wafted through the car, and a soft
curl dressed the corner of her lips. Everything she needed. Fresh air. Time. As much distance from the past as possible.

She whisked away the remnants of tears, and, thumping both thumbs against the steering wheel, glanced out the window. Rachel drew in a heavy breath, filled her lungs, and calmed the tidal waves within.

She couldn’t deny how captivating the drive had been since leaving the city. Winding curves shimmered in the high
afternoon sun, t wisting through rich jade broadleaf and evergreen trees. Rushing rivers snaked alongside the road, through deep gorges and under occasional white stone bridges. Rocky shores were decorated by wildflowers. And
more than one fisherman stood knee-deep in the gurgling waters with nylon lines
dancing in the passing wakes. Alpine peaks of the Sapphire Mountains to the west and the Bitterroot Mountains to the east jutted skyward, snow-covered, even in mid-June. The further south she traveled, the closer the mountains
edged toward the road, cliffs laced with trees and trickling water. Big Sky Country, Land of the Shining Mountains, the Last Best Place—all the nicknames she'd discovered in her limited research seemed appropriate. Whatever anyone
wanted to call it, one word summed it up best. Beautiful.

Rachel glanced at the time on the console. She left the city limits of Missoula behind forty-five minutes earlier. The cup of coffee she purchased at McDonalds remained nestled firm in the cup holder, empty contents still pungent in the car. Her stomach growled,
chastising the negligence shown in the city, and Rachel licked her lips. She’d eat at the end of the journey. Maybe spaghetti or a fried chicken salad. Both sounded good after three days of fast food. Not that she wasn’t used to eating out. She seldom cooked, but even she had endured enough hamburgers and French fries during the three-day road trip out of Pennsylvania.

She fidgeted against the navy
velour, heart thumping a bit louder as a faint trace of nerves overtook the
hunger pains to settle in the back of her throat. Seeing the town nestled at the southernmost base of the Bitterroot Valley made her pulse race, but everything
in life seemed uncertain. An unenjoyable feeling.

And the pending arrival into
Sullivan was only the beginning.

I was given this book by a friend. It a great story. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

Eerie puzzles begging to be solved

Rachel Brackett is on the run. With her soldier husband now dead, she moves to Montana to live and fix up her deceased grandparents’ mansion. She also wants to fix up a small forefront in town. Helped by a lovely couple, she is soon jarred when a creepy man seems to be following her. Then things really start to spiral out of control. At the mansion, she discovers secrets regarding her grandparents’ house and their former livelihood: covert genetic experiments between animals and humans. Horrified, she also finds out there’s a target on her head¬¬––but by whom? As danger closes in on her, she begins to rely more and more on an unlikely savior: a half man, half animal experiment. Along with lovely, extremely well written descriptions, the author also had me turning those pages, wondering how the story would actually end. Highly recommended!
