Successful attorney Leslie Montgomery is leaving behind her marriage and career in Washington, DC and moving to Legacy Springs, Montana for the slower pace and beautiful scenery. It’s something she’s always wanted, but she never intended to do it alone. Local rancher Peg Hamilton resents outsiders and is heartbroken when she has to sell forty acres of her family’s ranch to Leslie to keep the bank at bay. She can’t stand the idea of having a neighbor, especially a rich lawyer from the East Coast. While Leslie tries to adjust to her new life and make friends, Peg is desperate to hold onto her old life—and to keep Leslie out of it.

When an unknown company quietly buys up natural gas rights in the valley, the idyllic landscape both women love is threatened by the specter of drill rigs and boomtown sprawl. It seems everyone is hiding something as Leslie finds herself in the middle of a dangerous secret involving two powerful men.
