Marilee is about to change her life forever she leaves all behind in California and moves to Montana to visit a girlfriend who will let her hang out to recoup. I love the comment "it started out as a bad hair day and then went downhill" most of us have had that feeling at one time or another.

She arrives to find that her friend is dead, though the case is supposed to be open/shut accident Marilee isn't buying it.

There is a lot of interesting information and side characters that are developed in this book. I particularly like the interaction between the locals and the "celebrities" and how they clash. ( )

I thought this was a good page turner. It had suspense, cursorily drawn glitterati who may or may not be suspect, and valued friendship. It takes place in Montana, and Tami also does a good job describing the beautiful scenery and gorgeous vistas and how that scenery can draw a person to find his/her comfort levels. ( )

2.75 stars (round to 3 stars) for the redundant dialog and overly wordy story. IMO a least 100 pages could have been eliminated without loosing the flow of the story/plot ( )

Didn't like the second half. ( )
  Mariatina | Apr 12, 2013 |
A re-issue originally written in 1994, this story has lost remarkably little of its original appeal. Take one plucky heroine, an inheritance, a stubborn cowboy determined not to fall in love, a few quirky characters, and evil and powerful man and his hangers-on, mix well with a murder, a mysterious and threatening hermit, a few plot twists for interest and a gorgeous Montana backdrop. What more could one ask? ( )

Epigraph
Les rues de ma ville ne sont plus ce qu'elles étaient
Elles sont nimbées de colère, d'amertume
et de douleur
Changement insidieux
Et sinistre
Autant que les rouages de l'ambition au baptême

Book description

Mari Beth leaves her job as a court reporter and her latest failed love affair, jumps in the car, and goes, unannounced, to New Eden, MT, to join her best pal for a few weeks of R&R. When she arrives, she finds the house trashed, her friend dead, and the natives less than friendly. Something about her friend's death is not right, and Mari keeps probing for information. She gets bopped, bashed, and generally mistreated by everyone in New Eden, and this makes her more suspicious. In discovering what really happened to her friend, she also uncovers the deepest secrets of a most unsavory bunch of immoral and unlawful interlopers from Hollywood.
