She'd been watching the handsome rancher for a while, just a lone cowboy eating pie with an empty chair beside him. One night, Lizzie Wiles, Cowboy Cafe's feisty new waitress, went over and dared to interrupt his tortured solitude. Daniel Jefferson seemed shocked by her boldness as he buried himself in guilt over his wife's mysterious death. Lizzie tried to penetrate his gloom, but in the end, found herself falling in love. Having plans to leave town, she didn't want to think of these consequences. Worse, someone "really" wanted her to disappear--now Attacked and warned to leave, Lizzie had every reason to go...but she had one undeniable reason to stay.

I have to admit I had some issues with this book. I honestly just couldn't understand some of the motives and I felt like I wasn't given enough insight into the motives that were given. The suspense portion of the story didn't make complete sense to me, I felt that it was a bit of a distraction from the story.
I devoured the book.
It was an easy read. The characters were emotional and angsty but soon go over themselves. I love the "cowboy" setting. Having lived part of my life out on the prairies in Canada, it made my heart go pitter patter.
