Will she choose love or money? The Cowboy or the City?
The murder of her only relative forces Camryn Carmichael, a lonely young doctor, to choose between her dream career in a Houston research hospital and a rural practice close to rancher, Breckenridge T. Ryan the infuriating man she loses her heart to.
Cowboys, murder and romance. Oh, my!
When her suspicions about her great-aunt's death prove to be true, she resolves to uncover the villain herself. Breck tries to convince her that the community needs her just as much as he does, but when she uncovers a decades-old crime, she puts her own life is in danger.
Threatened by the diabolical killer and a 'blue norther', will she survive long enough to tell the tale?
The reason I won’t read Loretta Chase is because she likes the word “said” too much. It was always he said she said he said she said, over and over again. No, he bellowed, she yelled, he remarked, she muttered, just the word “said.” Well, this author was the same way. There were 232 pages in this book and the word “said” was used 427 times. Claimed was used once, murmured twice, muttered zero, whispered fourteen, remarked zero, yelled three. So, no imagination when it comes to conversations. Oh, before I forget, I was wondering who the killer was but if you read the blurb on the Reluctant Rancher, the second book in this series, you’ll find out. I read it and it kind of spoiled it for me so you might want to NOT read that. I was only curious as to what the next story was about and got more than I was looking for.
At 28% I quit. Mostly because of the narrator but also the book is too boring. Cami insists she’s engaged to Clay but goes dancing with Breck then out to dinner with E.J. She’s too flighty and indecisive for me.
As to the narrator: Horrible! Every single person sounded just alike, not even the slightest change in a voice. The narrator neither laughed, whispered, murmured, exclaimed, NOTHING! All she did was read the book, in a very monotone voice. I would never listen to her again. Unfortunately, I bought the second book in this series so let’s hope she got a little better in the 2 months it took to narrate the second book.
Even free it wasn’t worth it.
