"A special love story"
New York City fashion designer Josy Warner struggles with
her current assignment as nothing creative seems to come
to her mind. Josy, an orphan whose parents died when she
was a child, wonders if the news that she has a living
grandmother Ada Scott nee Timmons in Thunder Creek,
Wyoming has impacted her concentration. Her best friend
Ricky Sabatini, a cop under internal affairs investigation
for being dirty, sends a package that exonerates him to
Josy to deliver to a third party in Brooklyn. However,
when she arrives at the delivery destination, Josy finds
her contact murdered and she fleeing for her life. She
decides it is time to meet her grandmother.
While hiding in Thunder Creek awaiting an email in code
from Ricky, Josy hesitates about introducing herself to
Ada though she wants to know why her grandmother gave up
her daughter up for adoption. She also finds herself
attracted to local sheriff Ty Barclay, a former Philly cop
still mourning the death of his wife, who feels guilty
that he reciprocates her feelings. As Ty and Josy fall in
love, her New York roots place her in danger in Wyoming
with only a small town sheriff to keep her safe.
The return to Thunder Creek will elate fans as Ada meets
her granddaughter in a four-tissue box gathering inside of
a fabulous police procedural romantic suspense. The
action-packed tale never slows down even when Josy debates
whether she should approach Ada or not. The cast is solid
so that the audience receives a strong angst-laden subplot
intermingled with a thundering thriller that never slows
down until the climax. Jill Gregory provides readers with
a fabulous New York-Wyoming connection.
