Saddled with Murder
|Author:||Barbara Treat Williams|
Coming out as a lesbian is never easy and for single mom Britt Danner it's been a total fiasco. Falling in love with a beautiful woman should be a heavenly experience. But when she's your boss and has "forgotten" to mention she's already married to a wife with psycho-stalker tendencies, things can go to hell really fast.
So when Britt's aging Aunt Tess asks if she would return to rural Kansas to help take care of her ranch, Britt jumps at the chance. She hopes the hard work caring for the land and horses will help her move on, even though it means revisiting a place full of painful memories. Although it's easy for Britt to ignore the rumors that the Shamrock Ranch is haunted, it's harder to ignore the ghosts from her own past. Like her abusive ex-husband. Her eccentric sister Shelby who leads the local Wicca coven. And the ex-con mom who abandoned her.
The move has also exacerbated Britt's tenuous relationship with her snarky teenaged son. Already conflicted about what he perceives as his mom's "new" sexual orientation, Jake resents being uprooted from his urban home and friends and begins to act out in rebellious--and dangerous--ways. But are they as dangerous as the secrets buried deep under the dust in the attic and the dirt of the silo floor?
