From the Publisher:
Down to her last five bucks, beautiful runaway Wanda Jane Coblentz heads to the town watering hole and picks up local fiddler Clay Rhodes, figuring that a night at the local no-tell motel beats sleeping on a park bench. When Clay catches her going through his wallet, he dumps her purse out and discovers ID for somebody named Mary Smith. Talk about getting off on the wrong foot! Jane, aka Mary, reveals that she's on the run from a shady, possibly dangerous past. Despite her sketchy behavior, Clay falls inlove with her, and soon he and his mother are scheming in fine style to give Jane a last chance of her own.
"Ramsay strikes an excellent balance between tension and humor as she spins a fine yarn." (starred review) 01/31/2011
