This book is the final book in the Mekettrick Men series, and it's one that took a bit getting into.
Keegan has no reason to trust women, other than his young daughter that is. After a bitter divorce with a woman who he realizes he really didn't care about in the first place, Keegan has sworn off of women in general.
Molly comes to Indian Rock on a Greyhound bus, to meet her ex-boyfriends wife, and the now mother of Molly's child. Yeah, you read that right. Molly was the other woman in a relationship, that resulted in a child being born. I'm not sure why Molly gave up the rights to her child, with the ex being such a shady person anyway but she did.
I had a really hard time liking Molly, not for the whole other woman thing, but just because she seemed so wishy washy and a very puzzling person. She was a successful business person in LA, but yet she took the Greyhound to Indian Rock. She also just seemed to lack the skill that would be needed to run her own business.
I also had a hard time liking Keegan. I understand that he didn't want to trust a woman, much less the woman who had been his friends husbands mistress, but the way he treated her was down right cold. I personally wouldn't have gone out with him had I been Molly.
Over all this book was enjoyable after I got into it, but I would not read it again. I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to finish out this series, and who enjoys men who are way to harsh and women who are just confusing.
