In Pretty Reckless you get to meet Laney Briggs, an ex- kindergarten teacher turned deputy sheriff in her small Texas town. Right at the beginning of the book Laney finds herself in the middle of a big mystery with dead cattle and a murdered man. Then enters Laney’s ex-husband, Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson, who is assigned this same case. Laney ran Gunner out of town when she caught him cheating on her… by shooting his rear full of rock salt! So you can imagine the tension (and the sparks) that fly between these two as the story goes on.
