IT WASN’T EVEN NOON YET, and I’d already had a hell of a day. As
I peered at the Nelson’s Mercantile sign through the dirty windshield of my
half-ton pickup, I eased my grip on the steering wheel. Based on the dark
gray clouds rolling in, Mustang Mountain was going to get another storm
today. If I wanted to grab the rest of my supplies and get back up the
mountain before the snow started falling, I needed to go inside and get this
The bell over the door jangled as I entered the store. Ruby and Orville
Nelson had been operating the Nelson Mercantile for decades. Their family
history with the tiny Montana town went back almost as far as mine. That
was about the only thing we had in common.
Ruby was hellbent on breathing new life into Mustang Mountain, while I
was more than content with the slow pace and peaceful life. She thought if
she could get some of the guys around here hitched, it would breathe new life

What were you thinking?”
“I was thinking we need to bring some new families into town if we don’t

voice softened. “You, of all people, should know what kind of trouble we’re
Ruby might look like a kind-hearted grandma who spent most of her time
baking cookies and knitting Christmas stockings, but she had the mind of a
shrewd CEO. Too bad my family hadn’t hired her when business at the
lumber mill we owned took a turn for the worse.
“And how is me appearing half naked on a calendar postcard going to
