Description

Sally Alder is a couple of years past her wild youth as the hard-drinking, guitar-playing, hell-raising, singer known as Mustang Sally.
A professor of history at UCLA, Sally has just been offered the hugely endowed and deliciously secretive Dunwoodie Distinguished Chair in American Women's History at the University of Wyoming. Job description: Move into the late Meg Dunwoodie's posh residence in Laramie (the only one of its kind) and, with sole proprietorship of her papers, construct the definitive Meg Dunwoodie biography - without telling anyone anything about it.
Of course, everyone knows that Sally has been hired to poke through old Meg's papers, and a lot of people think that somewhere among them sits a treasure map that could lead to a fortune in gold Krugerrands. One way or another, most of Laramie is determined to get into Meg Dunwoodie's house.
There are break-ins, a curious sheriff, gossipy friends, and avaricious faculty at the university. And, as if that isn't enough to distract Sally from her research, sexy Hawk Green has shown up to rekindle a romance Sally thought was gone forever.
But all this goes deeper and the stakes are higher than Sally could ever have imagined. As she delves into Meg's romantic and heartbreaking past as a foreign correspondent in Paris during World War II, the forces of good and evil are aligning in Laramie, and Sally realizes that, truly, those who don't learn from their past are doomed to repeat it.
