Karlie Marshall’s mother has a secret...one that will turn Karlie’s world upside down...a secret that could get them killed.
A simple DNA test to find out whether she had any living relatives other than her mother brings to light a startling secret. As a child, her mother had entered Witness Protection and fled to the safety of the Ozark mountains. Now, Karlie’s peaceful life was shattered.
Once the buzz around New York showed the mistress and daughter of Anthony Bartelloni were living in the Ozarks, FBI Agent Heath Westbrook goes undercover as the sheriff of Misty Hollow in order to protect the Marshall women.
Danger grows by the minute. Trust is shattered. Love is denied, as death seems imminent.
Can Karlie and Heath see justice done and give into their feelings of love, or will death find them first?
