"Carol Evers is a woman with a dark secret. You see, every so often Carol descends into a death-like coma that she calls the Black Place. For two to four days her heartbeat slows way down, her breathing all but stops, and to the eyes of all she would appear dead as a doornail. Only two people know of her condition: her husband Dwight, and her former lover James Moxie--the most legendary outlaw the Trail has ever seen. Just before Carol can share her secret with a friend, she falls into the Black Place once again, only this time, Dwight begins preparations for her funeral two days hence, hoping to inherit her fortune. When a telegram arrives for Moxie, notifying him of the upcoming burial of his lost love, he rides out of retirement and hits the Trail once again, desperate to save Carol from a premature burial. Hot on Moxie's heels are threats both human and... other."--

This book has everything I need: a scary story with a bit of supernatural forces at work, a Wild West feel with notorious outlaws, and a fresh take on the Sleeping Beauty story.
Carol has a strange condition that makes her slip into a temporary "coma" every now and then. It looks like she is dead with no pulse, but she is very much alive. Only two people know about her condition: her husband, and her neighbour.
When the book opens, her neighbour has just passed away. Before she has the opportunity to share her secret with another person, she falls "asleep" yet again. Her husband quickly declares to the world that Carol is dead. He is determined to bury her ALIVE once and for all.
