When danger claims her, rescue comes from the one man she least expects
A cowgirl at heart, Bo Hamilton does her best thinking in wide-open spaces. So when money goes missing from the family foundation she runs—meaning one of her trusted ragtag employees is a thief—Bo rides into the Crazy Mountains to figure things out. But a killer hiding among the sawtooth ridges takes her captive…and isn’t planning on ever letting her go.
Bo’s disappearance gets folks thinking she’s the guilty one who’s run off with the money, but Jace Calder would bet his ranch that she’s innocent. Not that he has any reason to trust the beautiful, spoiled senator’s daughter. But she also gave his troubled sister a job when no one else would. For his sibling’s sake, Jace is going after Bo and bringing her home to face the truth. But up in the mountains, he finds Bo at the mercy of a suspected murderer. As her only hope, Jace is about to find out what they’re both made of.
Forget slow-simmering romance: the multiple story lines weaving in and out of Big Timber, Mont., mean the second Montana Hamiltons contemporary (after Wild Horses) is always at a rolling boil. Bo Hamilton grew up with Montana's Crazy Mountains as her backyard, so she heads there to clear her mind before facing an auditor in Big Timber who may be able to identify the thief stealing funds from the foundation named after her mother. When Bo fails to return on time, cowboy Jace Calder chases after her and winds up helping her escape her from a suspected murderer who wants to make Bo his bride willing or not. Meanwhile, Bo's father, a senator and presidential candidate, is juggling the ambitions of his second wife with the needs of his first wife, who was presumed dead but has returned to Big Timber with suspicious amnesia. New readers will struggle to keep the large cast straight and connect with the protagonists, whose backstories are only sketched out.
This is my first book by BJ Daniels and it will not be my last. I love second chance love stories.
It started a little slow, but it was for me the way it was written and the different story lines going on with in the book. Once I caught on I loved it. I only wished there was more interaction between Bo Hamilton and Jace Calder. The main story premise is between Jace and Bo but with the secondary stories they didn't get enough time for me to really get my romance fix. With that being said I can't wait to find out what's really going on with the Hamilton family mystery and possible secrets.
This is not a stand alone book and I'm going back to read Wild Horses book 1.
