Sue-Ann McKeown returns to her home town after a crushing six months of war reporting in Iraq. She has given up her high-profile job in Virginia and broken up with her boyfriend. Even her new job with a small-town newspaper seems almost too much to handle, especially since her old high school rival works there, too. But a dead goat is in her future, as well as voodoo, horses, and maybe even love.
Sue-Ann McKeown returns to her home town of Pine Oak after a crushing six months of war reporting in Iraq. Her mother has died in a tragic riding accident and her father has sold most of the family's possessions and run off to Italy. Sue-Ann herself has broken up with her long-time photographer boyfriend. And, oh, yeah, she is also suffering from a mysterious disease that makes it difficult for her to focus on her new job as reporter for The Pine Oak Courier.
The only good man available in Pine Oak is her boss--but he is dating the office manager, who happens to be Sue-Ann's old high-school rival.
Then someone reports that a dead goat has been found in a dumpster and a mysterious Pirate Radio Station begins sending her weird messages. Well, what else is there to investigate in this dump? But what Sue-Ann finds runs deep into the history of Pine Oak and teaches her things she had never expected about courage, perseverance, and love.

I was looking for a love story when I came across this book. What I got was so much more. An engaging plot, rich details, some nice twists and quirky characters--an altogether fun read make this highly recommended.
There are more titles, both short stories and novels, concentrating on this cast of characters in a small Florida town. What are you waiting for? Enjoy.
