This is the third book in the Cleo Cooper series. The main character is so real to me that it is hard to put the book down. I was on vacation when I got the book and read it in three days between sitting at the pool and reading far into the night. Cleo is planning her re-marriage to her ex-husband, Bud, and their children, Henri and Will, are planning the big day. That should be enough for one person but Cleo is also overseeing the drilling of a well for fracking and like all projects that Cleo gets involved in, it isn’t as simple as it sounds. Between problems at the drill site, making a historical find and bringing up a 25 year old family issue, there is plenty of things to keep this story lively. To top it all off, Cleo’s car which she won’t give up for anything has been wrecked. Oh yes, we can’t forget about Henri. She is known for going through boyfriends but has become attached to a detective who is working on the case of a body Cleo found in the woods when she was surveying for the next well site. This case also includes the sheriff involved in the family issue. I think I have covered everything that is happening in this book. It has a lot happening but it is easy to keep who’s who straight. I won’t give away the story but there was a twist that I didn’t see coming but I loved it. I know the author isn’t planning on writing any more Cleo Cooper books in the near future but the ending was left so she could pick up the story again. I, for one, hope she does. I love Cleo and her family would like to see how things go after the ending of this story,
