When a dead body swan dives from a balcony into the pool at a wedding, gossip about disgraced paralegal and former rodeo queen Emily - whose husband left her for a woman who's really a man - comes to a halt.
Enter Jack, a secretive attorney who is a sexy mix of cowboy and Indian. Emily refuses to work for him until she learns about the disappearance of the six-year-old daughter of his notorious client, Sofia, the wedding shooter, who is also an illegal immigrant.
Emily feels a strange affinity for the girl and launches a desperate search for her. Bodies pile up across Texas and New Mexico in her wake, as the walls around her own secrets begin to crumble, and the authorities question whether the child is anything but a figment of her imagination.
See why Pamela Fagan Hutchins' novels have won contest after contest. A former attorney and native Texan from Amarillo, who spent 10 years in the Caribbean, Pamela splits her time between Houston and a little place called Nowheresville.

Jack Ass

While the author showed some comedic talent, I thought attorney Jack was more of a jackass than a romantic hero. He didn't seem sympathetic or concerned that the 6 year old daughter of one of his clients was missing - what kind of human beings doesn't care about an innocent child?

I wanted to like Emily, a late 20s paralegal with a gay husband and an unexpected pregnancy. I found it implausible that she didn't suspect his true sexual orientation when her young healthy husband showed almost NO interest in having a sex with her. Then when she caught him cheating, Emily ran home to stay with her mother, a cold and judgmental woman - what was she thinking?

Heaven to Betsy had potential, if Jack wasn't so cold & self-absorbed and Emily had more confidence & common sense. The plot may appeal to young adults but made me want to slap both Jack and Emily. Also, the narrator sounded like a snotty teenager.
