By Susan R. Sweet

Penny MaGrath, an overly protected, painfully shy young woman, is suddenly torn from her sheltered home and family in Florida when her Aunt Les insists on taking her to Australia. Penny is greeted by family she never knew existed. Why were they kept secret all these years?

Unless Devin MaGrath, only heir to the MaGrath lands and sheep herd, and his uncles can figure out what’s killing the sheep, there may be no herd or land to inherit. Devin welcomes the arrival of his Aunt Les to help until he’s expected to play guide for his cousin Penny. He resents being left out of the investigation of the sheep deaths because of this unwanted guest. Resentment turns to concern for her safety when an egotistical madman turns to murder to accomplish his greedy ambition. Will Devin’s protective feelings lead to love?
