The gripping conclusion of USA TODAY bestselling author Delores Fossen's Sweetwater Ranch miniseries
The tip that sends FBI Special Agent Seth Calder to an abandoned warehouse in search of exonerating evidence brings him face-to-face with a familiar adversary. Thorn-in-his-side journalist Shelby Braddock is on her own search for the truth about a decades-old crime. Until they stumble on a crime scene…and end up fighting for their lives. Now, their only hope of survival is to work together. But something even more dangerous is drawing Seth closer to the gorgeous brunette. As he gives in to a passion so strong it can erase the sins of the past, he must evade a relentless killer…and confront a shocking revelation no one could have predicted.
Another non-stop action story, that left me gasping.
There's a lot of tension in this story, not just from the action that let me bite my nails, but the family tree is rather mangled with lots of animosity and hostility.
A 23 year old murder, that has risen more questions, than giving answers. As Seth and Shelby both gets the tips of possible evidence in the old warehouse, upon arrival, they don't only have to face each other, the son of a woman accused of killing her father, but unforeseen, dangerous, and deadly events start to take place, and no one knows what or why things are happening. The only conclusion is, someone wants Shelby dead, and don't mind taking Seth at the same time, if that was to happen.
Ferocious, savage, explosive attempts on their lives just keep coming at them, putting lots of others in the harms way as well, as they are trying to find out who is behind the murderous attempts. The surprises and revelations keep coming, the unexpected twists in the plot kept me glued to my Kindle.
Seth and Shelby's feelings grow while trying to stay alive. The hidden attraction they have felt for each other is not so hidden anymore, it is actually so palpable, everyone around them can see it. The situation might not be the best for romance, but the passion runs deep, the desire they feel each other is undeniable.
The relationships in the families are braided, who's married to whom, and who is related to whom is something that took me a minute to keep straight, even though this is not the first book in the series I have read. But at the end, it was all clear again.
A true family saga, with passionate love over generations, and convoluted, puzzling suspense that leads to explosive action
