That is all I will say about the story you have to read it to find the answers. C J Carmichael has done a wonderful job with this story. She drags you into the story and you just have to continue turning the pages. This is a story anyone could read it is not erotic or elicit in any way. You Learn about the small town of Marietta Montana and the people of Marietta as well as the main characters. The Characters are well written. This was a joy to read especially with Christmas bearing down on us.
