Description: When Sheriff Flint Cahill's lover, Maggie, disappears, he knows his ex-wife is behind it. But with a winter storm coming, can he find her before it's too late? Find out in the next Cahill Ranch novel from New York Times bestselling author B.J. Daniels!
Genre: Romantic Supsense
Why I Picked This Book: I haven't read a cowboy romance in awhile and I really enjoyed a previous book
My Impression: I was really impressed with Daniels' romantic suspense in the last book of hers I read but this took it to a whole new level! This is some very real suspense with some very real danger and it was quite a gripping read!
The story is mostly told through Flint's eyes though I did feel like I got to know Maggie as well as he knew her. It was an interesting twist especially because the couple was not together through quite a bit of the book but I still felt like I was invested in their relationship. It was so clear just how much Flint loved her and how good they were together.
Flint's ex-wife, Celeste, makes a pretty great villain. She's so awful and manipulative but while she is a bit extreme I think we all know someone like her in some way or another. I liked too that she wasn't a paper cut out villain. There's a touch of depth to her here and there though she's still pretty terrible. As well I LOVED the Cahill family. I'm hoping the two bachelor brothers get their own books soon.
I did guess most of what of the whos and whys ahead of time but this isn't completely a mystery so I didn't have a problem with that. The character development was wonderful and I really loved how Daniels developed the relationship with the couple apart. This is a series and an author I'm really looking forward to reading more from.
Would I Read More of this Series/Author? Absolutely! I'm looking forward to getting to know more of the Cahill family.
Would I Recommend this Book? If you enjoy contemporary romance - especially some with suspense - I think you'll enjoy this one.
