Roost (Uncertain Ground Series) by Jasmine Winterson

Synopsis from
Four urban refugees move west, haunted by echoes of a tangled conspiracy. Colorado’s Western Slope and the fertile beauty of the Grand Valley beckon with the promise of new beginnings. As the women seek to find their place in this seeming paradise, partnership with gutsy local Anna Garcia opens their eyes to an unsettled region torn by natural resource and labor wars. For the men, a mountain biking trip with Olympian Derek Draben transforms their plans into a much broader vision of glory. Time passes … relationships grow … until a chance meeting in the desert reminds everyone that the past lives on ... and does not forget.

My review:

I've never been to Colorado-sadly I've never even been west of Kentucky. But because of the author's descriptions I felt like I was there experiencing the natural beauty of Grand Valley. She had interesting, well fleshed out characters and a plot that wasn't as simple as it seemed. You think the four friends moved for different scenery and a new line of work. But they are also running from their pasts. I found the touch of mystery to be a nice twist. I thought it was well written and plan to check out the other book in the series.

4 stars
