My Review:
Welcome to the world of oil of gas. A place where people would do anything to get ahead and get the job done. A place where one wrong move, one cut corner can cost people their lives. This is world that Liv Gardner finds herself in. She's a corporate attorney for Falcon Oil, an up and coming company that is making headways in the small town in Alberta, Canada. The only thing holding them back from raking in the profits is a Tom Wainright, a local sheep farmer. There has been a lot of sabotage on their rigs and property, and everyone suspects Wainright, but no one can prove it. Liv goes in undercover to see if she can get Wainright to admit to the deeds so Falcoln Oil can continue it's work. But Liv finds that Wainright is a tough nut to crack and in the process starts to have some conflicting feelings. And when things become more violent and the situation escalates out of control, she is put in the toughest position she has ever found herself in.
Liv is a wonderful person willing to do anything for the people she loves, including Micky, her boyfriend and head of Falcon Oil. This is the whole reason she intially goes undercover trying to get Wainright to confess. As she works her way into the heart and soul of the community, she finds that they have worked their way into hers. But then one bad decision can ruin everything - not just her life, but the lives of many of the people she has come to care about. Tom Wainright is a man with an agenda. Armed with the belief that toxic fumes from Falcoln Oil killed his wife, he has set off to sabotage and drive the oil company out of the town forever. But how far will he take it?
An amazing story that seemed well researched and developed, I had a hard time putting it down. Always wondering what was going to happen next and then being surprised at the many twists and turns as the story unfolded. Wainright and Liz were such dynamic characters that they came to life on the pages. The final chapters were the best I've read in a long time. I thought I had the "big twist" figured out, and then I was shocked at what really happened - then wondered how I didn't see it before! This was a well thought out, captivating book that I would recommend to anyone.
