Publisher's Summary

A romantic cowboy. A sunset kiss. Everything is perfect until he's charged with murder.

Callie Fletcher just wanted to sit on the terrace of her favorite hot spot and watch the sunset over the Texas Hill Country. A table for one, a glass of pinot, and the best view in Austin. She isn't looking for love, but it walks right up to her in the form of a gorgeous, wealthy cowboy by the name of Dominic Jaxson. One shared sunset turns into months of them, and Callie can see a future in his beautiful blue eyes.

But Dominic has a secret...a secret that shatters Callie's romantic fantasy. After returning from a romantic getaway, the secret is exposed as Dominic enters Callie's courtroom, charged with murder. Callie is forced to remain silent when all she wants to do is scream. But when she regains her composure, she realizes there's no way her cowboy could be guilty.

With too many questions and no answers in sight, the only thing Callie is certain of is their love. Armed with her faith in Dominic and her desire to keep her happily ever after, she decides to investigate on her own. Can she prove her cowboy's innocence?

I didn't see that coming...

The characters are beautifully written and help make this story come alive on the page. Their slowly developing relationship feels real and un-rushed.

I loved all the court information, I'd never really thought about what a court recorder does, so I found this really interesting.

The mystery is well done, it's not obvious who's doing different things or why they're happening, it leads to a couple of twists that really make the book.

Great narration, character voices really well done and the delivery is well paced and conveys emotion and tension.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

WARM & FUZZY

Fun & suspenseful mystery - can the hot cowboy Dominic be trusted? He's Mr. Perfect but then is accused of murder - what will Callie do? Can she prove her man's innocence?

I loved the story, thought it was fun & entertaining,and full of suspense and intrigue. Liked the characters, and was rooting for their love to conquer all.

Not the best.

This is not the best mystery/romance that I have come across. I believe it does need some more development, however, it is a short read/listen that others might enjoy more. I would still listen/read this authors other works

Plot development is weak!

This short story really stretches belief. It is a slight romance with a suspense element thrown in. Neither the romance nor the mystery really work.

Dom is too much! He is shown as this incredible, thoughtful person who is “too good to be true!” Then comes the mystery element of Dom being a murder suspect! “Oh so nice Dom” should probably provide the reader with doubt about his innocence, but it does not! The murder mystery element is just too set-up.

The author did not make me believe in “oh so nice” Dom as a real character. I also did not believe in the suspense aspect of the murder.

Unfortunately the plot development is weak; this definitely feels like a beginner effort.

A romance and mystery in one!

I really enjoyed this quick read! I was the perfect combination of a romance and a mystery. Both the author and narrator did a great job. It ended a bit on the abrupt side for me, meaning maybe the building of too many details for such a quick ending, but I guess that's often the nature of a short story. Very pleasant read overall!

Is Callie's rancher bf guilty or innocent?

This was a quick read/listen. Callie is a widow, whose kids are grown and now her life is full with her job as a court reporter. On one fateful night, while she is enjoying the sunset and some wine at a local bar, she meets rancher, Dominic. The pair end up dating and life is great...Dominic is so romantic...swoon. That all comes to a screeching halt when Dominic turns up in Callie's court as a defendant in a murder trial. Then comes the mysterious notes...and Callie finds herself trying to solve the crime and prove Nic's innocence...will she be able to before it's too late? Is there an HEA for Callie and Dominic? Enjoyed the twists and turns of this short story that kept me guessing almost until the end. I look forward to reading more of this new-to-me author's work.
