Sharon Donnelly is so nice and na?ve, she’s unbelievable. After her abusive husband is killed, she moves from Texas to Florida to attend USF and to work with her sister on her horses for handicapped riders. She can’t understand why she’s having so many accidents; until her car blows up. Who is trying to kill her and why? Will the riding instructor or the police detective finally win her heart?
