"A young widow returns to her hometown in Texas Hill Country, never dreaming that the new schoolteacher holds the key both to the mystery surrounding her father's death-and to her heart"-- Provided by publisher.
Emily Leland sheds no tears when her abusive husband is killed in a bar fight, but she arrives back home in Sweetwater Crossing to discover her father has died under mysterious circumstances. Then the house where the new schoolteacher and his son are supposed to board burns, leaving them homeless. When Emily proposes turning the family home into a boardinghouse, her sister is so incensed that she leaves town. Her family name sullied by controversy, Emily is determined to solve the mystery of her father's death-- and to aid Craig Ferguson, despite her fears of men.
