Libby Hawkins, is home, back in Coyote County, after the death of her husband in a plane crash.   Back to memories of  her heart being left broken in pieces by Jackson Carter, when they were young. He has moved home too, he is now the sheriff. Thrown back together by an odd happening at the neighbor's house, Libby knows one thing, her feelings for Jackson are not dead. She is happy to see him again, and still has that same heart racing attraction to him.
The elderly neighbor is reporting an alien looking in her window, of course it is a very hard thing to swallow, and Jackson and Libby are not sure what to think. One thing is for sure there is something up. Someone is surely playing a prank, and they must get to the bottom of it, before the neighbor ends up being declared senile and committed to a home.   Their investigation reveals this is not the first time the "alien" has been seen in the area.  They will get to the bottom of this crazy mysterious happening.
Mary L. Briggs has written a delightful story, and it moves quickly, this is the first novella I have read from this author, but hopefully not my last one. I have enjoyed several published short stories from this author in a national magazine. Most definitely a 5 star story.
This story is available online as an ebook at several sites, amazon.com, cbd.com, and barnesandnoble.com...
