Decent book. The hero Quinn is the Sheriff & has been investigating some strange things going on in a house when the heroine a public defender comes up accusing him of being a racist bully when he is not.
The heroine is part Latino but never grew up with that heritage so she got interested in it in college & now is working in a small town for a year as part of her law school agreement.
The hero too worked in a big town but came back home, disillusioned in a way after the woman he loved chose working with a criminal boss over him & the crimes he saw got to him.
The book is fairly average, the hero chases her, she gives in, dithers, they both want different things, she is a city girl & wants to live in one and then they are at opposites sides in a case but well suddenly with one life threatening moment both are willing to compromise.
