Rose Hilory is thrilled when she receives a promotion at the Data Computer Company. Finally, her hard work has paid off, and she moves to Blue Ridge, Alberta. In addition to an increase in pay and responsibility, the company has provided a house to live in rent-free. This is not an ordinary house. With its computerized components, Rose finds surprises in every corner, and some of them are disconcerting. Also troublesome are her mysterious boss and an employee who is determined to see Rose fail.

Even though she’s glad for the move, Rose’s memory remains vivid, and she yearns for the love she lost more than ten years ago. She can still envision the growling of the cougar when it attacked her horse, Queenie, as she spent the evening with her boyfriend, Donavin. Even more devastating was the reaction of Donavin’s parents; they disapproved of their son riding with a simple country girl. His family had packed up without even a goodbye. She never saw him again.

Determined, Rose tries to move her life forward, but strange events intervene. Her life, her job, and her welfare could be at stake if her enemies get their way in A Canadian Rose.
