Hope Montoya knows someone is poisoning her, but who?  She suspects her mother was also poisoned and knows her father was murdered. Who wants her family eliminated? She vows to fight! She realizes she won’t last the eight  months until she turns twenty-five and her uncle no longer  controls her or her estate. Never will she be dominated by a man as she was by her father, as she has seen her mother and grandmothers dominated. If she marries, she gains control now, but only if she weds a man she can trust. Only one man meets her requirements. Can she trust him to protect her and capture the killer...but then to leave?
    
    Micah Stone has been in love with Hope since the first time he saw her. But he was accused of her father’s murder and surely would have hung if not for his two brothers’ aid. Most in the community still believe him guilty. But the drought has him too worried about water for his dying cattle to care about his neighbors’ opinions. When Hope proposes a paper marriage in exchange for land on the Brazos River and much needed cash, her offer rubs his pride raw. His name may be Stone, but he’s not made of it. He can’t refuse her for long, and so their adventure begins. He and Hope have to stay alive and discover the killer before they become victims in the deadly assaults.
If she would have thought the plan foolish the killer has to be Ramona because a true would do what their dying friend wants
I will begin to read this can I ask what is story of this book, I'm  jenesis ,a girlfrom philippines
Why donI have this feeling that her "Bestfriend" is the one who's behind the poisoning?
I don't think it's her aunt and uncle because they're too easy to assume. I'm thinking it's someone closer to her like Ramona.
It really catches Your eye and the story has a strong hook! Love it so farM
The start is holding itself with lots promises. Feeling bad that she has to steal on her own home and feel scare at her own home. No people will like the feeling to be scared at their own home so do her. Nice one.
