Holy suspenseful Harlequin!  Like I've said before, I don't normally review Harlequin novels, but I must be hitting a lucky streak with them because here's another really good one.  Our heroine, Dulcie, mysteriously inherits some property after her parents die so she heads out to Wyoming to figure out who left her the land and why.  While there she runs into Russell Corbett, a local, wealthy rancher who feels protective of Dulcie after her arrival.  Dulcie soon learns someone murdered the woman who owned and left her the property and the murderer seems to be harassing the local school teacher, Jolene, with pieces of a very realistic short story... why is the school teacher involved?  What does the murdered want with her?  Soon Jolene and Dulcie are working together to solve a mystery that the locals seems to be trying to keep a secret.

Definitely a suspenseful read that kept me on the figurative edge of my seat the whole way through!

I think this Harlequin was especially good because there were more than two main characters.  Usually its just the man and the woman and maybe some children, but here there are other main characters who are equally developed as the main characters and who play into the story as a whole.

On a side note, I have no idea what the title has to do with the story and what is with these new Harlequin covers?  I can't tell if the guy on the cover is sexy or creepy, but I'm kind of leaning towards creepy!  If you want to read this book (and I think you do) you can find it on my PaperBackSwap shelf, where incidentally I am also running a special - 3 Harlequins for 1 credit.

*Note: Though I did get this book free through the publisher, that had no bearing on my review at all.
