The underlining story through the series is about the O'Brien brothers trying to figure out who killed their parents. Joshua is trying to decide what to do with his life. He's on leave from his job as a cop as he helps his brothers with the ranch after his parents passed away. He runs across a woman in trouble and is compelled to help her. Tommy is the local sheriff and like a brother to the O'Briens. Alice has developed a relationship with a young girl named Izabel. She feels responsible for the girl’s parents dying as a result of the mistake she made on her job. She is a cop who is walking the line as she is desperate to find Isabel. The book opens with her trying to find Isabel who has been abducted and she thinks it's by someone who deals in human trafficking. This was a very good mystery. I was disappointed we didn't find out more about the parents’ murder. Alice's twin boys were adorable and it was ironic that Joshua happens to be a twin too. Great chemistry between the characters and high suspense as you wonder what happened to Izabel. I received this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. You can see my full review at More Than a Review dot com where I rate the level of sex, violence, language and drug/alcohol use in books.
With the next book out in her Cattlemen Crime Club series, Barb Han thrusts us into Joshua's story with a heart stopping opening scene that sets the stage for a book filled with intrigue and romance! Looking forward to learning more about the mystery of this family. Joshua O'Brien has begrudgingly returned home to his family ranch in Bluff, Texas, but he doesn't know how to break it to his brother's that if his dream job that he's been chasing becomes available, he's not planning to stay and run the ranch with them. Alice Green is on her own trying to track down a missing teenager when Joshua runs across her. When he hears the situation, he sets out to use his connections to help her with her search, but also to protect her from herself when she continually endangers herself without a thought because of her guilt of a day gone wrong that changed that girl's life forever.
