    Chancey Double-Back
    by Pam Ingebritson
    A classic but distinctively twisty saga of the power of loyal friendships, blood ties, humility, and forgiveness. Two families of different classes, whose lives have been deceptively intertwined, are suddenly confronted with the long-buried sins that scattered them years ago, and steered them onto rugged life paths.

    Chancey village in Lincoln County New Mexico, nearby to the rich and respectable resort/gambling town of Ruidoso, is a peaceful place in the 21st century. The unexplained murder of the troubled Sullivan family's evil patriarch exposes a long-hidden, complex entanglement involving his daughters, Gina and Melanie, and their wealthy cattle-ranching neighbors, Eric and Bridget Nielsen. While investigating the puzzling murder that seems a throwback to 19th century New Mexico, Lincoln County Deputy Sheriff Robbie Amante Jenkins launches a risky plan to reunite the estranged Sullivan sisters and bring Gina back together with Samantha, the daughter she left behind.
