An Absence So Great.
Celia Landrey is guiding her last walking-tour of the season in historic Pass Creek. Myriad tasks await her attention, such as planning her wedding to handsome cowboy real estate agent, Jake Flagg. Discovery of Smoke Allenby’s bones wasn’t on the agenda. But there they are, turned up in the removal project of an old underground fuel tank at Jolly Hoffman’s service station. A situation Celia, town leader, can hardly ignore.
There are threats against Celia for her investigation but she’s determined to separate the innocent from the guilty—halt an eruption of serious trouble. She just wishes she knew whose skin she’s trying to save.
