In Winter Range , the intimate details of ranching and small-town life are woven into the suspenseful story of three people struggling to survive, to belong, and to love in the chillingly bleak landscape of eastern Montana. Ike Parsons is a small-town sheriff whose life is stable and content; his wife Pattiann is a rancher's daughter with a secret past. But when Ike tries to help a hard-luck cattleman named Chas Stubblefield, he triggers Chas's resentment and finds his home and his wife targeted by a plotfor revenge.

A friction between locals and outsiders, rebels and traditionalist. Well-written and the place is as much a character as the people of this small spread out community surviving a tough winter and balancing their ranching skills against the elements. There is an unspoken form on communication and expectations that creates misunderstandings and breeds contempt. I enjoyed this first novel by Davis, her descriptions of people, places and conflict.
