Publisher's Summary

It started with an anonymous note, but will it end in disaster?

Uncle Owen had died mysteriously, and Deputy Marshal Kate Phillips wants to know why. After arriving at Great Smoky Mountains National Park in search of answers, Kate finds herself at the center of an ancient family feud and a land dispute. It turns out a surprising number of people have an interest in her uncle’s estate. Even David Jennings, Kate’s handsome Good Samaritan who rescued her when she arrived, thinks he has a claim on Owen’s property - which some say is cursed. 

Amid the mounting secrets and rumors circulating in the seemingly peaceful community, Kate has a secret of her own - one that could threaten her life and any future she might have with David. It soon becomes clear someone is targeting her.

Could Kate’s troubled past have come back to haunt her, or have the clues she’s uncovered about her uncle’s suspicious death put her life in danger? To solve the mystery, Kate needs David’s help. But can they pull together before time runs out? Or, will they become the next victims when it all explodes?

love this romantic suspense!

Family secrets, mystery and intrigue kept me completely engaged in this romantic suspense story by Gayla K Hiss. It's my first audio listen from her and I am sold! Uncle Owen has passed away, and an anonymous letter brings Kate to the Smoky Mountains to see what happened to him. Bad luck seems to follow her there from the minute she arrives. She finds out she is in the middle of an ancient family feud and needs to pick and choose who to trust with her reason for coming. But the danger just keeps increasing and her newly forming relationship with David could be compromised. Will they find out who is after them and why? I have to say, this is an intricately planned story, with fantastic characters. I spent a good portion of the book right along with Kate, trying to decide who to trust, what was going on and what to do in the future. It's one of those stories that pulls you in and makes you part of it. This is my kind of story, one that makes you think and makes you love.

Michael Cahill gives an outstanding performance. It's my first listen of his, and I really enjoyed his voice. He easily transitions between men and women, and even does the ages from young to old perfectly. He has a good pace and is easy on the ears. I will be watching for more from him.
