Overview

Dana Turner is an astronomer; she's also an ex-convict. Deliberately framed for a murder she didn't commit, she spent seven months in prison. On her release, she came to Texas to work at an isolated little observatory in the Davis Mountains. She has no interest in people—only in stars.

That changes when she meets Jace Riley. For the first time in a long time, she's attracted to someone. More than attracted. But, despite her feelings, she has some questions about Jace, a man who shows up in her life with astonishing frequency.

    engaging police procedural romance

    Six months ago in Austin, two men held up an armored car stealing a million dollars and killing three people that included retired Texas Ranger Gibb Barton. Most of Gibb¿s law enforcement associates mourn his death, but Ranger Captain Jace Riley obsesses on bringing the murderers to justice as he lost a close friend. Clues lead Jace to go undercover in the Cloud Rim vicinity of the Texas¿ Davis Mountains. <P>In Cloud Rim, Jace wonders if female astronomer Dana Turner, recently released from prison when a California judge vacated a murder conviction, is involved with the killers. He plans to interrogate her, but to the shock of Jace and Dana, they are very attracted to one another. However, she does not trust males except for her famous father because of her murder rap and a graduate student stealing her scientific work while she lingered in prison. He does not trust her because he feels she must be a cohort of the killers. Though this couple falls in love, an infinite future together seems darker than the night sky over the Davis Mountains. <P> BENEATH A TEXAS SKY is an engaging police procedural romance that stars two delightful but wary lead protagonists. The hunt for the killers engages the audience on two levels: that of the actual investigation and the growing romantic feelings between Jace and Dana. The astronomical tidbits interwoven into the enjoyable story line provides fascinating starry references. All this leads to the fact that Rebecca Winters remains a writer for all seasons. <P>Harriet Klausner
