Sooner or later, every family secret comes to light…

When Brody McTavish sees Harper Hamilton's runaway horse galloping across the pastures, he does what any good cowboy would do—gives chase and rescues her. Unfortunately for him, the woman he's secretly loved for years didn't need saving, and she's just reached her limit with people treating her as hopeless. But they soon have bigger problems when they make a gruesome discovery—human remains revealed by a recent rainstorm. Remains that will dredge up old Hamilton family mysteries…and bring about a scandal that could threaten all Harper's loved ones.

With her father running for president, every move Harper makes is under scrutiny. But despite the risks, she's determined to uncover the truth about her family's role in a long-ago murder. If she can trust him enough, Brody will be more than an ally. He could be the only thing standing between Harper and an enemy intent on keeping the past buried forever.

First of all, if you are expecting a Carolyn Brown laugh until you cry. Western Romance, park your expectations at the door. This is pure and simple Intrigue with a little romance sprinkled in that takes place in Montana. This is NOT a bad thing! Just know going in that other than riding a horse two or three times, the word ranch throw in occasionally, and maybe 50 pages devoted to romance, you will be on the edge of your seat trying to figure out what's going on and who the murderer is (plus a few finer details that I won't mention as I don't want to spoil anything). I picked up this book while looking for something to cleanse my palette of YA books I'd been reading recently and unfortunately did not notice that this was book 4 in a 6 book series. This was absolutely no problem as it could stand on its own. However, it hooked me so well that now I must have the rest of the books in the series. I do have book 6 but will just have to contain myself until the earlier books arrive. One of the many advantages to reading a series that is complete is being able to order all the rest of the books used from PaperBackSwap or Amazon and binge read them all. I loved both of the main characters in the story. Brody has been waiting for years for Harper to grow up enough to pursue and Harper has weighted every guy she has ever met against Brody. So the time is finally here and what happens but they stumble over a body on the ranch while looking for her runaway horse. (see ranch and horse-western). Anyway, this body is part of the ongoing mystery of Harper's missing Mom who has recently returned after 24 years with no memory of what has gone on for the last 2 decades. Combine this with the body they have stumbled over and their decision to investigate since both of their families are involved makes for some tense action in this small Montana town. While the murder is resolved by the end of the book, there are many unanswered questions that make this a series well worth diving into.

I liked the way each chapter started out in the past, weaving the tale and the mystery and bringing it into the present. I felt that the plot and the characters were well developed. The mystery and events of the past are brought into the present time and the clues are hidden in the past. I read this as part of a B&N Serial read on my Nook App.

The books was good to read. The characters were nice. Did not like the ending. I love to read series books, but they should stand alone. This leaves you hanging on big issues so you will buy the next book and for $6 it is not worth it.

the mystery just gets better and better in this series. just when you think you have the answer....you don't. b.j. has a real talent for twisted plots and puzzles wound into a romantic story. i honestly couldn't put this one down, there were no stopping points in this story. i'm hoping the next in this series has all the answers, but then again, i don't want it to end. buy it read it and enjoy the mystery.

Many of the answers are finally coming out and becoming clearer. But there is still something hidden to come. After reading the Beartooth series and the Hamilton series I think it's really the story of Sheriff Curry and his wife Lynette.

Finally! Harper’s story. I’ve been dying to get to know her better throughout the series. Her outgoing attitude and mixed feelings with respect to the events surrounding her family was a lot of fun. The way that she comes to life was so approachable that she seemed oh so very real to me. I loved Brody as well. His conflicting concern for so many people vies with his need to do what’s right. He was so strong and loveable, and the perfect counterpoint for Harper’s impulsiveness. Getting to know more about the family`s past put a lot of things throughout the series into perspective. It also opened up a great many questions leading into the next novel in the series. This balance gave me chills more than once. The way that little facts pop out at different times gave me a few ‘aha’ moments while also drawing me further and further into the mystery that spans this series. This is all backed up with Daniels’ fantastic writing. She drew me into the tale, allowing me to participate in it, rather than simply reading it. The suspense throughout this novel was both apparent and subtle. The undercurrent gave me chills at times while I was trying to unravel it all. At the same time, the picturesque and vividly explicit descriptions allowed me to picture each moment of it. Once again, Daniels has created a novel that I had a blast reading. Romance and suspense combine in perfect proportion, ending with the perfect lead-in to the next novel in the series. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

Fourth in a series. I am enjoying this journey. The Hamilton family is full of hard working siblings. This story belongs to Harper. She is back from school and trying to find her place. She runs into her childhood crush from a neighboring ranch. The families are not exactly fast friends. To make matters worse, when she finally gets to spend time with Brody, a dead body pushes them apart again. After a lot of sleuthing together and apart, Harper and Brody fall for each other and risk family, life, and heart to stay with each other. I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next to see how the next Hamilton finds their match. This is highly recommended.

I can't believe that this series just keeps getting better and better. I've loved all the books that I've read in this series and the next one won't be out soon enough for me. They are just so good that I couldn't put them down and this one was awesome. There's so much going on in each book and the twists are nail biting and heart wrenching. Brody McTavish and Harper Hamilton are star crossed lovers. The animosity between the two families is old history that has just been thrust into Brody and Harpers laps, and its about to threaten everything they hold dear.
