Shotgun Moon

Merry McCoy has served her time. Convicted of killing the man who raped her four years earlier, Merry returns to the family ranch in Hazel, Montana, where she plans to steer clear of the law. But when her cousin Lauri is accused of murdering a cheating boyfriend, Merry can’t let her be railroaded the same way she was.

Setting out to prove Lauri’s innocence, Merry gets close to her former flame, Officer Jamie Gutierrez, the one cop in town she can trust. With Jamie and a no-holds-barred parole officer backing her up, Merry discovers the town’s good old boys—and girls—like to play rough.

"Merry's got a problem. Fresh from a Texas penitentiary, she returns to Montana to discover that her cousin is suspected of killing a man, trouble the spitfire McCoy knows something about--but you won't have a problem with K. C. McRae's western mystery. Shotgun Moon is easy on the ear and the eye--definitely an author and a character to watch out for."--Craig Johnson, author of the Walt Longmire Series, the basis for A&E's hit television series Longmire
