Jean Rover is the author of a new book, Ready or Not, a Romantic Suspense published by Blue Agate Press.

As a child, Cody Benson disappeared while on a trek in the snowy Oregon wilderness. Now a twenty-six-year-old professor of anthropology, Cody is determined to find his fugitive rescuer, and secretly resolve his past. Unfortunately, his sideways life is filled with anomalies—guilt, panic attacks, a cat who loves opera, a dog on death row, a gorgeous brunette who’s off limits, a motley crew of small-town folks with secrets, a suspicious cop, and someone who wants him dead.
