Can they find her son in time? 

Sophie Cayes is on the road to success as an artist. Until her ex-husband threatens to sue for full custody of their son. Upon learning of a guest ranch in Eastern Washington that keeps a room open for women in need, she grabs her son and bolts. Although Chad Davis loves starting colts on the Seven Tine Guest Ranch, his goal is to have his own spread. Everything’s on course until a woman and her preschool son show up. He’s not thrilled about helping out. Until the boy comes up missing. On his watch. Along with a tribal cop, they head back to Montana in search of the boy, knowing his dad was the one who kidnapped him. Sophie prays they find him before her ex-husband and his new wife go on the run. Taking her son with them. 

Excerpt: Her paintings were strewn over her worktable. Every single one—the meadows, deer, rivers,

wolves and coyotes, mountains, birds—had been marked up with a black, permanent marker.

And each of her nine-by-twelve-inch canvases appeared to have been sliced with something the

size of a Buck knife, like the one Matt packed around. Oh, and there was the buffalo she’d been

working on, a gash across his face. Tears pooled in her eyes. “How could he be so evil?”

With quaking fingers, she made a call. “No way.” Her face and ears turned red.

“What’s the matter?”

She shook her head and made another call. “I can’t believe this.”


“Both Matt and Olivia’s phones are no longer in service.” She shoved the cell into her back

pocket. “What are we going to do? How am I going to find my son?”

“Chuck will find him.” He had to. Chad strode to the table and began stacking the paintings.

“Don’t bother. Matt’s behind this mess. Besides, we’ll figure out where he has Basin before his

fingerprints are processed.”

Sophie ambled over to one of her wooden easels that lay splintered on the brown carpet. “When I

left, this canvas . . . was on the . . .” She pointed to the easel. “It was yellow with

brilliant blues and purples . . .” She hiccupped a sob.

The owl painting now lay crumpled on the floor, a dirty footprint across the top. She picked up

the piece and traced the rough gash puncturing its heart.

“How will we find Basin?
