Cowboy's Legacy - Romantic Suspense Review

Cowboy's Legacy (The Montana Cahills) by B.J. Daniels (Amazon Link)

Rating: Very Good
Source: Blog Tour

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.

  1. How lovely to receive a handmade card. I'm glad there are ppl out there still keeping the tradition alive. This book has a nice twist with a female villain. I'll check out the author.

  2. This sounds interesting. I don't know if it would bother me that they spend so much of the novel apart. But I do love it when the hero rescues the heroine. I'm so glad you enjoyed it though.

  3. Oh, I do like books with suspense in them! Thanks for sharing - that's great that you really liked this. I don't read a ton of cowboy novels, but I DID just read one called Wild Trail that I loved.

  4. High recommendation indeed and I must say reading your review I am so tempted. I like cowboy type books and this seems to hold a lot of what I enjoy in a book.

  5. So this is the third book but the suspense and romance worked as standalone? You have me curious but I am hesitant to dive in. Did you read previous books first?
