Murder, mayhem, marriage, and a horse named Mutiny…
Minnie’s impulsiveness has been getting her into trouble her whole life. She never expected it to land her on a suspect list for murder, though. With nothing left but a few trunks of possessions and her own defeat, Minnie leaves San Francisco behind and returns home. In an effort to protect her family and friends, she keeps them in the dark about the ongoing investigation and the possibility that danger may have followed her to Larkspur. When events force her to trust someone with her secrets, she turns to the sheriff and finds both a friend and an ally.
It may have been four years since he last saw Minnie, but how could he ever forget her? When Art finds her sneaking through a back alley in town, he knows something’s wrong. The once vivacious Minnie is a mere shadow of her former self, all sparkle gone from her eyes. Art knows that time spent with her will be dangerous to his heart, but he can’t turn Minnie away. Even if it means protecting her from her own impetuous decisions, he vows to keep her safe.
In her attempt to take responsibility for her own choices, Minnie shut out her friends, family, and God. An unsolved murder isn’t all that’s chasing Minnie, though. Will she find her way back to the heart of her faith before it’s too late?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I first met Minnie while writing an earlier book in this series. She was such an outgoing and loving character, but when it came time to write her story, I knew something had to change. As I contemplated what Minnie’s life would be like as an adult, I realized that she was the perfect character to get into so much trouble that she began to doubt herself…and then to find her way back. We all have times in our lives when we fall so far away from what we believe in that we begin to doubt whether or not we really believed it to begin with. This is a story of restoration and…redemption.
Who are your favorite authors?
