My Review

I love the book!  I enjoyed the suspense and the characters.  I love how they work together to trust that God will look out for them.  This is the 2nd book in the series and I enjoyed the first as well. I'm looking forward to the next one in the series and reading other books from Dana Mentink.  This series has kept me hooked!

Howdy, friends! I am so thrilled to be galloping into the second book in the Gold Country Cowboy series with you. This book was a hoot to write. It’s got a nice twisty mystery and plenty of danger! Our hero, twin Owen Thorn, is a Marine doing his darnedest not to fall in love with his best friend’s little sister, but you know how these things go, don’t you, partners? There’s trouble ahead in cowboy country and this story will take you on a wild gallop to the happy ending! God bless and thanks for coming along!

  5. I'm confused by something in the author's note -- it sounds like Owen is falling for his twin's little sister, who would....also be his sister. I'm obviously reading this wrong?!
