From Don't miss 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.


My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

To begin with, when I requested this novel, I completely missed the fact that it was book #8 in a well established series (as well as the conclusion).  While this fact did not keep me from fully understanding what was going on in this particular novel, it did make me feel as though I were missing something when past events were referenced. 

That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed the nonstop action that encompassed this novel. You were literally thrown in at the beginning, and it kept going right up until the very (unexpected) ending. The characters were complex and interesting, and the killer was definitely not who I expected it to be! I loved the twists and turns that the author kept bringing into the mix, making you wonder who was behind everything (and who would survive) right up until the very end. 

For a "romance" novel, I fount the main characters enjoyable. They weren't they type to fall in love (or into bed) immediately, instead they chose to fight it every step of the way, and that not only made the story better (in my opinion), but it also made them as characters more believable. Also, their "romance" didn't take center stage to the rest of the plot which is something I find happens less and less nowadays. 

Overall, I not only enjoyed this novel, but the author's writing style as well, and I will definitely be checking out the earlier books in this series!
