While Rose recovers from a broken heart, she finds herself at odds with her sister and business partner, Violet. Rose buries herself in her landscaping work but becomes worried when her employee and friend, Bruce Wayne Decker, goes missing. In the meantime Fenton County Assistant DA Mason Deveraux has been patiently waiting to begin a relationship with Rose, but she realizes she needs to confront the demons of her past before she can embrace a new future. She needs to find out the truth about her birth mother.
But her past isn't her only demon. An undercurrent of tension has been spreading through Henryetta, Arkansas, since drug lord Daniel Crocker's arrest six months ago. Still, she's not prepared for a nightmare come true: Crocker's escape from prison. Crocker carries a grudge, and he's determined to make Rose pay. But he plays a game of cat and mouse, forcing Mason and the Fenton County Sheriff's department to hide Rose on her birth mother's farm. But will it be enough to save her?

Things start to heat up, Rose is acting more like a woman than a girl, and I just wish she didn't ramble on so much in her head...but you know what you're getting into after the first book. Glad not to have the smoker voice reading anymore! Rose sounds like a 24-year-old, rather than the 54-year-old, whom was narrating the last three books!
Changing a narrator four books into a series wasn't a good move. Not to mention that this new narrator's "performance" falls flat. The voice doesn't seem to differentiate enough between characters and the tone of the narrator really has an impact on how we perceive the main character. Rose changes as a result of how this narrator reads compared to the first tgree books. Such a disappointment.
