A Time of ChangeBook - 2015
Josephine Buck dreams of becoming a hataalii, or Navajo healer, but for now, she's working at The Outpost. Tom Stuart's trading post/general store sells everything from groceries to fabric, from cheap souvenirs to artisan-created jewelry. Tom's a surrogate father to his staff and the heart of the community. Early one morning, Jo finds her beloved boss dead in his nearby home -- murdered. She's barely begun to grieve when Tom's estranged son, Ben, arrives on compassionate leave from the army, determined to find out who killed his father. Seeing Jo is a sharp reminder of their time as high school sweethearts -- and that she walked away from him when he needed her most. For Jo, Ben's return awakens old desires, but she's wary. Their approaches to life are so different. He craves risk and danger ; she, stability and family. It soon becomes cler that Tom's murder was the first step in a chain of violence -- and that Detective Katie Wells isn't working very hard to find his killer. Jo and Ben must solve the murder of a man they each loved. Their passion for justice ignites a deeper passion in them both.
