On Madera Creek by Rachel Goss

Book Description: It’s 1947 and twenty-eight year old Natasha Baranov is faced with an unbearable stretch of prison time on an espionage conviction. Natasha breaks out, in the process murdering an innocent woman. Espionage work being more palatable than murder, Natasha reverts to her old ways, ushering Soviet operatives across the Mexican border in Presidio, Texas.
Twenty-one year old Imogene Park is at odds in Little Rock after serving as star witness in the trial that put Natasha Baranov away. Although she came out of it all right, she can’t shake the feeling that she would have avoided a lot of pain if she had seen through Natasha’s lies sooner. Searching for a new beginning, Imogene takes a job as a cook at a dude ranch near McDonald Observatory.
Under the canopy of stars by night and clear blue skies by day, Natasha and Imogene find romance and adventure, but the past won’t go away. When their paths cross again, Natasha sees her opportunity to exact revenge against Imogene, whom she blames for her troubles. Seizing her second chance, Imogene flips the script.
A tenuous friendship builds between adversaries who partner to take on a dangerous Cold War era assignment.
