On the family’s Brazos River Ranch in Texas, Avery Elliott helps run her grandfather’s commercial construction business. Raised by Senator Elliott, Avery has never doubted her grandfather is the man of integrity and faith she’s always believed him to be . . . until the day she finds him standing with a gun over the body of a dead man. To make matters worse, Avery’s just discovered a billing discrepancy for materials supposedly purchased for construction of the Lago de Cobre Dam.
Desperate for answers, Avery contacts FBI Special Agent Marc Wilkins for help. As Marc works to identify the dead man Avery saw, threats toward Avery create a fresh sense of urgency to pinpoint why someone wants to silence her. With a hurricane approaching the Texas coast and the structural integrity of the Lago de Cobre Dam called into question, time is running out to get to the bottom of a sinister plot that could be endangering the lives of not only Avery and her loved ones but the entire community.

DiAnn Mills has smashed it with a unique premise and lots of intrigue and danger.
When her Grandad disappears after Avery Elliott sees him standing over a body, she cannot reconcile the incident with the faith filled, loving grandfather she has known all her life. Of three friends, only Senator Elliott is left alive. Marc Wilkins has lost his father and is looking into his connection to Senator Elliott. And he will need help from Avery.
This story was filled with many possible suspects in an interesting way that kept me turning pages. But not all was centered on murder. Ms. Mills also touched on hospice care, a hereditary disease, family dynamics, dealing with trauma and unresolved issues of abandonment and some romance. Forgiveness and grace play a big part of the story. “Gran told me forgiveness was a gift to myself. Without it, I would be eaten up with hate.”
This was not just an entertaining story, it taught essential life lessons, too.
