This book is about a modern day small-town lawyer, Taylour Dixxon, who is obliged to defend a New Jersey millionairess accused of murdering her husband. The case presents more than an innocent client. Both find themselves in danger as they search for the truth in this must read set in the beautiful hill country of Central Texas.
Small-town lawyer Taylour Dixxon meets Sarah Cockrell Baines, a New Jersey socialite and millionairess, and their budding friendship begins with promise. However, soon after they meet, Sarah is arrested for the murder of her husband.
