When danger claims her, rescue comes from the one man she least expects
A cowgirl at heart, Bo Hamilton does her best thinking in wide-open spaces. So when money goes missing from the family foundation she runs—meaning one of her trusted ragtag employees is a thief—Bo rides into the Crazy Mountains to figure things out. But a killer hiding among the sawtooth ridges takes her captive…and isn't planning on ever letting her go.
Bo's disappearance gets folks thinking she's the guilty one who's run off with the money, but Jace Calder would bet his ranch that she's innocent. Not that he has any reason to trust the beautiful, spoiled senator's daughter. But she also gave his troubled sister a job when no one else would. For his sibling's sake, Jace is going after Bo and bringing her home to face the truth. But up in the mountains, he finds Bo at the mercy of a suspected murderer. As her only hope, Jace is about to find out what they're both made of.
Bo Hamilton has spent many years believing her mother was dead, but life throws her a bittersweet curveball when Bo discovers her mother is actually alive! Except no one – her mother included – has any idea where her mother has been hiding or what she has been doing. And to top it off, Bo has problems of her own that she’s trying to deal with – a charity foundation that’s missing thousands of dollars and a family that was falling apart even before her mother returned from the dead. Bo escapes to her beloved mountains to clear her head, but runs into an escaped convict. Out of the frying pan and into the fire! It’s up to the hero, Jace Calder, to save his beloved Bo. But life is rarely that simple and Jace quickly begins to realize that he has no idea what he’s just gotten himself into.
Suspenseful cowboys – who knew, right? While cowboys are not typically my hero-of-choice, I absolutely loved reading LONE RIDER by B.J. Daniels! The plot was pace-perfect and really kept me on the edge of my seat, reading and waiting for “what happens next!?” The mystery was complex and thought-provoking; I genuinely had trouble figuring it out, but the answer made complete sense. Brava, Ms. Daniels, for your excellent use of subtle foreshadowing! If your other books are anything like this one, you will earn a place on my “must-read” list.
LONE RIDER is the second installment of a series which involves an on-going mystery. It may be helpful to read the first novel before reading this, but you can certainly enjoy this part without reading the first. It would just make more sense and provide familiarity with the characters if you read the first novel.
