Wild Hearts by Sharon Sala

Book Description:
Past Sins Cast a Long Shadow 

Dallas Phillips refuses to believe her father committed suicide, even though things were tough on his farm and he was deeply in debt. When she hears he'd told a neighbor about an upcoming windfall, she grows suspicious, and her suspicion only deepens when she realizes someone is lurking in the nearby mountains after dark. 

For help, she turns to Trey Jakes, local police chief—and her former lover. As they begin to investigate, another mystery comes to light. Trey's mother is beginning to remember events from thirty years ago, something shadowy that happened in the mountains, and Dallas's father was there, too. Is what happened that night connected to his "suicide"? As they search for the truth, Trey and Dallas struggle to fight their attraction, but they may not be able to fend off another force—a killer who's more than willing to kill again to make sure old secrets stay buried.

My Thoughts:
Great book!  Why would a killer come back after 30 years for people who were drunk teenagers and can't remember what they witnessed?  He wouldn't unless he needs to hide his skeletons.  Dallas doesn't believe her father committed suicide and no one can convince her otherwise.  When she discovers his plan to keep the farm out of foreclosure, she knows there is more to his death than anyone knows.  Trey is the local police chief and he and Dallas have a past.  He can't say no when she asks for help, even if it brings a killer after them.
I absolutely love Dallas.  She is strong and determined on many, many levels.  I love how she was going to save her father's farm in his way.  The mountain people are always amazing and I adore how they came to Dallas' aid.  Trey was great, strong man.  He was awesome with his family and their interactions were a great addition to the story. There was plenty of suspense and the story never slowed down.
Solid 5/5.  Great start to a new series from an awesome author!
