Connealy Combines Western Action and Charming Historical Romance
The Boden clan thought their problems had ended with the death of a dangerous enemy, but have they truly uncovered the real plot to take their New Mexico ranch? Rancher Justin Boden is now in charge. He is normally an unshakable and rugged man, but with his brother, Cole, shot and in mortal danger, even a tough man faces doubts. And it doesn't help that Angie DuPree, the assistant to the doctor trying to save Cole, is as distracting a woman as Justin ever laid eyes on.
With her and the doc's timely skills, Cole looks to be on the mend, and Justin and the rest of the Bodens can turn their attention back to the dangers facing them. It's clear now that everything that's occurred is part of a much bigger plot that could date back to a decades-old secret. Can they uncover all the pieces before danger closes in on them, or is the threat to the ranch even bigger than any of the Bodens could imagine?
Continuing the strains from No Way Up, Connealy expands upon the tale of the Boden family, ranchers in 1880s New Mexico Territory, who are attempting to ferret out the identities of who attacked their family patriarch. When eldest brother Cole is seriously wounded, his younger brother Justin takes on the task of defending the homestead and solving the mystery. He doesn't expect to be drawn into romance during such a trying time, but Angie DuPree, the doctor's assistant, is a distraction he can't resist. Angie, a young widow with a hidden past, admires the Bodens (and Justin most of all) for their confident faith and loving familial bond. She must come to grips with her own self-worth and decide how much she is willing to risk for love. Connealy spins a sweet love story within a fast-paced adventure, and she knows her westerns. This second installment of a three-part series jumps right into the action, so new readers may want to start at book one to get a full grasp of the larger plot.)\n
