I have been a fan of Ms Busbee since her frist book. Her last few books were not that interesting very disappoint in her. She is great writer that could do better. I'll keep buying her books.

Having never read a book by this author, and then finding out it was her first contemporary romance was a pleasant surprise. Shelly Granger fled to New Orleans from her hometown in Oak Valley seventeen years ago, devastated by a broken heart thanks to Sloan Ballinger. Shocking news of her brother¿s suicide forces her return to Oak Valley, and picking up the pieces of the ravaged Granger Cattle Company. Many questions need to be answered, specifically why would Josh, who practically raised Shelly after the death of their parents, and her hero, commit suicide? Why is the Granger Cattle Company practically non-existent, and who might have blackmailed Josh? And what did Josh have to do with Nick¿s parentage? Add the old Granger ¿ Ballinger feud, and the desire that still burns red hot between Sloan and Shelly, and you have the formula for a prefect romantic suspense. Plus all the other alpha males in this book are just too much ¿ I can definitely see future books (at least I hope there will be) for Jeb and Roman. The delightful secondary characters are just too good not to be brought back to life in future boo

Seventeen years ago, Shelley Granger fled her home in St. Galen, a small town in Northern California¿s Oak Valley to escape the failed romance with Sloan Ballinger. She has never returned to the valley until now. Her older brother Josh, who raised her when their parents died, killed himself and she needs to straighten out certain estate matters as well mourn. However, her image of Josh does not reconcile with those of others as she soon meets the son of a servant claiming to be her illegitimate nephew. She also runs into Sloan whose opinion on Josh is that the man was an SOB. Finally, a second cousin and law official tells her that Josh was hanging with bad people and may have allowed marijuana to grow on the vast ranch in exchange for erasing gambling debts. Shelley realizes Josh dipped into her trust fund without telling her. She even begins to wonder if he was murdered even as she falls back in love with Sloan. Though the dead Josh seems to have carried too much baggage for Shelley to have missed, readers will enjoy this exciting romantic suspense tale. The support cast including the four prime males that have impacted on her life (Sloan, Josh, he cousin, and her ¿nephew¿) enables the audience to understand the depth of the tribulations eating at Shelley¿s soul. Still RETURN TO OAK VALLEY is Shelley¿s tale as she wonders if she should continue her quest for the truth at the cost of tarnishing the image in her mind of a beloved dead one. Harriet Klausner
