Extra, extra, read all about it: young hot-shot journalist looks for love. Maybe it's not front-page news, but for journalist Julie Downs, it's true. With two men vying for her attention, Julie doesn't know what to do. So to avoid a decision, she throws herself into her job as a reporter in her small town of Coldwater, Montana. In a moment of good fortune, she is assigned a special-interest column about the long drought that has turned the town to desert and sapped the strength of the local ranchers. But Julie can't escape the inevitable. When she unwittingly stumbles onto the trail of something even more threatening than the parched land, she must decide whether she will pursue a headline-grabbing story or follow her heart--wherever it may take her.
