Publisher Description

When her sister, Pippa, goes missing, Nella Freling tells her boss she’s taking time off from her job as a research librarian, hops in her sensible van, and heads south of the border to Montana. However, local police don’t seem too concerned about a missing woman living in her motorhome. So Nella will have to look for Pippa by herself, unless she can convince a highly recommended tracker to help her, but sadly the rude and angry cowboy won’t even listen to her at first.

But Nella can be persuasive.

The first time High Mountain Tracker, Fletch Boone, laid eyes on Nella, her ass was stuck in his grocery cart. The next time was at the ranch; she was wearing mud, head to toe. But when he catches sight of her a third time, hanging off a cliff, he can’t turn his back again. What Nella lacks in survival skills she makes up for in sheer determination. Unfortunately, neither of those is enough protection when bullets start flying. 

Fletch has no choice but to jump in before the woman gets herself killed.

And that would be a damn shame.

Thrilling romance suspense!

This is a fantastic second story in the series featuring a group of former special ops hunks turned mountain trackers/cowboys. What a sexy setup! I love these guys and the women they fall for. This one is about the broody reclusive Fletcher. You just know he has a traumatic backstory and when it comes out it’s a heartbreaker. He’s paired with a uptight powerhouse that just won’t give up especially when it comes to finding her sister. Nella comes to Montana to find her wild child sister that’s missing. She has a few tense meetings with Fletch that starts an engaging relationship all the way to romance. She’s a challenge that takes Fletch a minute to decide if he’s up for all the trouble. I love Nella with her spunk and fierceness. She doesn’t give up even though she lands in trouble more than once. Good thing Fletch is there to save her. It leads then into a dangerous situation as the culprits decide to tie up loose ends. I figured out the head honcho fairly quickly but it was still an exciting story full of suspense, danger and mystery. The romance is fast but with their age there’s no time to play games or delay. They know what they want and go for it. I love the older age of these characters in the series. A lot of living has happened and gives them a grow up perspective on life. We get a new heroine with Nella’s sister Pippa. Looks like she’ll be paired with Sully the tech wiz of the High Mountain Trackers. The ending was sweet and poignant that melted my heart. So good! I look forward to the installment in this thrilling romance suspense series. Loved it!

High stakes

While Fletch was a bit on the grumpy side during parts of the book, I really liked Nella’s characters personality as it was as a strong, determined woman. Her desire to find her sister will have her stop at nothing and all Fletch can really do is hang on for the ride, which was amusing at times. Overall, it was a fun book to read and quite the page turner.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Nella and Fletch

Nella is one determined lady. Fletch is a bit grumpy. Nella goes off to find her sister and Fletch is there to rescue her. The road to what has gone one with her sister, and the blooming romance of these two, is a suspense filled one. Great cast of characters. Fletch is complicated, but Nella is determined. I can’t wait for the next one!
