Government investigators--Fiction; Rich people--Fiction; Deception--Fiction; Arizona--Fiction
Libby James, the new librarian for Alma Elementary School, has come to the small, quirky town of Amen, Arizona to spend her life in her books, in her garden, and in solitude. But she is hiding from far more than just an outside world she finds painful and unforgiving. Libby is really Elisabeth Jamison, owner of Jamison Enterprises and one of the richest women in the country. Unbeknownst to her, Libby is also suspected of selling highly classified information from her company's government defense contracts.
As a new semester begins at Alma Elementary, David Rogers, a dashing, young Naval officer arrives to teach sixth grade, courtesy of a grant from the government. At least that's his story. He's actually been sent undercover by the CIA to find out all he can about the woman who calls herself Libby James.
David quickly learns that Libby is not only beautiful, but that she is completely unaware of what is happening at her company. Soon his agenda shifts from trying to prove her guilty, to protecting her from whoever is guilty--and is systematically killing the people who get in their way. [from publisher website]
