FBI agent Madison Bergman returns to an Arizona First Nations reserve in hopes of inheriting her late uncle's summer cabin where she spent most of her childhood. She reunites with long lost lover Lucas Bloodfeather, now the sheriff of the small Arizona community but finds the reservation residents still unwilling to accept a white woman as one of their own nor allow her ownership of the property. Can Maddie ever really come home again?
I was drawn to this story for its unique premise. We don't often see a native american hero or see the heroine as the outcast, trying to fit in with a marginalized group. Some interesting backstory in how Maddie came to have a native american "uncle", and that her decision to join the FBI led to his untimely death. However, the short length of this book made it impossible to explore those story elements further. A shame, because they would have made for much more intriguing reading.
If a quick (really quick) deck-chair read is what you're after, this is just the kind of book you love to find on a shelf of your own summer rental cabin. Enjoy!
