Maddie Dupree interviews serial killers for a living, yet somehow walking into Mort's Bar in Truly, Idaho, scares her. She has come back to the small town to write a personal true-crime book. Her mother was the other woman when she was killed in Truly, leaving Maddie in the care of an eccentric aunt. The owner of the bar is the son of the philandering husband and his wife. Mick Hennessy now owns his family's bars and believes that the past is just that. The fact that his mother killed his father and the waitress, as he and everyone else in town calls Maddie's mother, and then herself is better forgotten. But now this darn author is in town stirring up old memories and Mick's libido. The feelings are mutual, but will they last after Mick finds out who Maddie really is? Gibson will sustain her popularity with this witty, fiery romance filled with interesting and dynamic characters connected to Sex, Lies and Online Dating (2006) and I'm in No Mood for Love (2006).

About the Author
Rachel Gibson lives in Idaho with her husband, three kids, two cats, and a dog of mysterious origin. She began her fiction career at age 16, when she ran her car into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper, and drove to a parking lot, where she strategically scattered the car’s broken glass all about. She told her parents she’d been the victim of a hit-and-run, and they believed her. She’s been making up stories ever since, although she gets paid better for them nowadays.
