Overview

Elizabeth Adams is a Los Angles native who has always dreamed of living in the Rocky Mountains. She loves western movies and riding horses, and dreams of being a heroine in a western film. She gets her chance for real life adventure when her mother disappears from Salt Lick, Colorado, after going there to sell a ranch she inherited.

J.B. Cooper (just Cooper) is under suspicion for killing his neighbor, Henry Harper, over a water dispute. There is no evidence to convict him, but the shadow of doubt hovers around him. He just wants to be left in peace.

Circumstances throw Elizabeth and Cooper together when he tracks rustled cattle to her ranch . . . . and discovers a body in the barn. Once again, he is the suspect in a suspicious death. Elizabeth is convinced Cooper had nothing to do with the murder of her cousin because to her, he's a true western hero. Together, they search for her mother, clear Cooper's name, and fall in love along the way.

    This was a fun read! Her mother has gone missing in Colorado, and Elizabeth Adams is determined to get to the bottom of it. She has gleaned all of her cowboy knowledge from the movies, so how can her assumptions be wrong? J.B. Cooper, on the other hand, has no illusions as to his standing in the community of Salt Lick – everyone suspects him of murder. Maybe even double murder. Ms. Lindun, with her usual flair for combining humor with tragedy, writes a compelling story, once again treating the reader to the vibrant world of life in the mountainous Colorado ranchlands. Well done.
    I purchased this book online and have given this review freely and without compensation of any kind.

    Coloradan D'Ann Lindun knows cowboys. So it's no surprise she can write realistically and convincingly about
    Cooper, the hero in "Cooper's Redemption," a loner cowboy with a secret in his past that explains his damaged
    soul.

    However, just as convincingly as she writes about cowboys, Lindun also creates the character of Elizabeth, a 
    woman from LA who runs a flower shop and is about as fish-out-of-water as you can get in Colorado. In the
    author's capable hands, the contrasts between the two are lightly drawn without making either into a stereotype.
    I loved the scene where Elizabeth is faced with a meal that contains red meat and a baked potato loaded with
    butter and sour cream! Not her usual LA fare.

    Cooper and Elizabeth meet when she arrives in Salt Lick, Colorado looking for her mother who left LA the month
    before to settle the estate of her uncle and hasn't been heard from since. Local law enforcement has been oddly
    disinterested in making progress in finding her and Elizabeth has finally decided to do something about it
    herself.

    Everyone in town suspects Cooper killed Uncle Henry although he denies it. And he's the suspect again when a
    man turns up murdered in Elizabeth's barn. Elizabeth is the only person who doesn't believe he's guilty. And
    Cooper is the only person she feels she can trust to help her find her mother. Together they find what connects
    cattle rustling, the murder, the disappearance of Elizabeth's mother and the reluctance of the sheriff to take it all
    seriously. As well as love.

    Suspense, a hot cowboy and cold Colorado nights--what's not to like about that combination?

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
