When county sheriff Cab Johnson gets a hunch, he's learned to trust it, and his hunch tells him Rose Bellingham is in a peck of trouble. Bad enough he's in love with her, bad enough she's already engaged to Jason Thayer. He's got to figure out what she's hiding before he loses her for good. Rose can't stand one more person meddling in her business, even if that person is a handsome, eligible sheriff. She's been controlled for far too long. But since her fiancé's father is both her boss and landlord, she can't dump Jason until she's got somewhere to run. She's found the perfect place: a patch of forest outside town. But with Cab watching her every move, she's hard pressed to finish her hideaway so she can make her escape. Meanwhile, she's not the only one with problems. Can she find a way to help her friends, too? Just when Cab solves one mystery, more pop up. Where does Rose keep disappearing to? What's wrong with Mia Start? Why is Hannah Chatham lying to her fiancé? At least he's let Rose know he's interested. And if he's not mistaken, she's interested, too. Rose's hideaway is perfect, until her friends invade it to escape their own troubles. Can she trust them to keep its whereabouts a secret? Does she want to hide from Cab anymore? Now that Jason's out of the picture, is it safe to follow her heart?
When two unexpected visitors arrive with secrets of their own, Chance Creek must brace for its deadliest night ever. Can Cab figure out the connections between all the mysteries fast enough? Or will Rose and her friends pay the ultimate price?

I have read 11 book and I enjoy them all and the narrator's to.
The Sheriff! He was the strong, quiet type who went about his business but cared so much about those around him. It was hard to watch him be in love with Rose and see the struggle for him to finally get the girl.
All the books in this series are the same, just characters and location change. The woman moans and groans the entire book about how strong she is, how she doesn't need a man, wants what she wants and doesn't care who she hurts getting that particular goal.
She did a very good job with the narration of each different character.
Not really. It took me a while to get through this one. I get so frustrated with these characters who whine the entire book only to change their mind at the last minute.
I don't think it was very realistic that Rose built a tree house in the woods all by herself, having just a bit of help from another woman. Then all of a sudden her other friend built a corral in the same woods. Also Rose just disappeared from all her friends staying in the tree house for days. Didn't these friends wonder where she was? She was in love with Cab but wanted a space to herself. Then when she finally admitted that love and that she wanted to be with him all of a sudden that "being alone" wasn't so important anymore!
overall, the story was good. It is very confusing though when the author introduces a third main character that has no relation to the story until the very last chapter. then, she's not even a main character in the next book in the series. I just wish there had been better explanation for the third main character
Not better but different. I love to listen to a book that has an incredible narrator to an equally wonderful book. If Cora Seton books weren't available on audible, I would still read her books. She is an AMAZING author.
Fila because of the strength she had to over come the adversity she faced.
She gives the characters such a wonderful personality, just like Cora writes them. Ms. Rubinate is fast becoming on of my favorite narrators.
Chance Creek, The small town you don't want to threaten.
YeeHaw I just Love these cowboys of Chance Creek. I haven't read a book by Cora Seton that I haven't LOVED!!
Interesting plot-like the character Cab. Chemistry built up well, but does then disappear! Start much better than the end.
