Book Description:

Texas Ranger Brody Calhoun is with his parents in west Texas when an unexpected attack injures the brother of Rebecca Morgan, Brody’s high school sweetheart. The local sheriff, a good friend, asks for Brody’s help. At first, it seems an open-and-shut case.

As Brody digs deeper, he realizes the attack may be related to an organized crime trial Rebecca will be overseeing. With Rebecca’s help, he compiles evidence involving cattle rustling, bribery and dirty payoffs that shatter the entire community and put Rebecca directly in the line of fire.
Brody expects to protect her. What he never expects is to fall for Rebecca all over again, or for a murder to throw the case wide open. Is Brody’s faith strong enough to withstand not only deep-rooted corruption and cattle rustling but also love?

My Overall Feeling of the Book:

What's not to love about a Texas Ranger?  Brody is the perfect specimen.

Rebecca is judge by day and rancher by night.  How in the world would a person do it all while taking care of her nieces and visiting her brother in the hospital.  She is superwoman!

I thought the story behind Brody and Rebecca's past was sweet and loved watching the fall in love.

Margaret Daley had me guessing the entire book.  I never would have suspected the culprit behind the mystery.  What a suspense!  It starts out a bit slow but once it gets moving, look out!

A Brief Excerpt:
"My life is about to change.  A shiver rippled down the length of her body as the paramedics hopped to the ground and hurried toward Thomas, grim expressions on their faces."

The Cover:

I am just loving covers lately.  They have become so real and great at portraying the book.  I love how you can just see Brody's profile as he tips his hat.  The rope over his shoulder says he's all cowboy :)  The city in the foreground brings in Rebecca's career as a judge.  The two world's meeting makes for an awesome cover!

Other Notes:

~A good stand-alone book if you haven't read the full series.

4/5
