Review: In Seconds by Brenda Novak

This is the second book I have read about in this town.  This one comes first and In Close after. I read them backwards. I was kept in suspense except for information about a few things about Clair in her story.  So yes I will read more of Brenda novels in the future.
Vivian (Laurel) for the last couple of years lives in Pineview, Montana with her two kids. Vivian has had a rough life but she is in a good place now. Vivian keeps her past and tries not to get involved with anyone.  So she won't have to lie or if trouble comes get them involved.  Myles King the sheriff lives next door and as asked her out a few times but she keeps saying no.
Myles has a teenage daughter. His wife died 3 years ago from cancer. Many women have tried to get his attention but he has not wanted anyone except his neighbor but he wants to go slow their but not as slow as she wants.
Then their is a murder at a cabin in the area and no one is found to have a reason to kill him. Vivian is afraid that the gang who wants her dead has found her again. She was part of witness protection for a couple of years, but when they were found again and marshall killed they went off on their own.  Vivian tries to get information out of sheriff by asking him to fix her fridge that she sabatoged and got wine out too.
Vivian drank to much and asked the sheriff for a one night stand and never again.
Myles can't get her to except dinner or anyother date turns her down because she had too much to drink.  Then another times tries to see her bluff, but than an old boyfriend of Vivian comes to visit and tells her she needs to run again.
Lots of actions, murders and falling in love.  I want Rex to have a story of his own. You want to route for the good guys and hope bad guys are stopped for good.
