When Cimarron ranch patriarch Chance Boden is caught in an avalanche, the quick actions of hired hand Heath Kincaid save him. Badly injured, Chance demands that his will be read and its conditions be enforced immediately.
Without anyone else to serve as a witness, Heath is pressed into reading the will. If Justin, Sadie, and Cole Boden don’t live and work at home for the entire year, the ranch will go to their low-down cousin Mike.
Then Heath discovers the avalanche was a murder attempt, and more danger might follow. Deeply involved with the family, Heath’s desire to protect Sadie goes far beyond friendship. The danger keeps them close together, and their feelings grow until being apart is the last thing on their minds.
Wow what a crazy month it has been since my last review. I have so many reviews to catch you up on and articles that I hope you will love. But this mamma needed a vacation. So let’s start with Mary Connealy’s newest book No Way Up. It’s the first book in the Cimarron Ranch Series and what a solid start it was for her.
Connealy brings in a Heath Kincaid which is from one of her other series but you do not have to read the other series in order to understand Heath at all. (But I was a little excited to hear updates on the characters from that series) I really like Heath’s growth through this book. He was quirky and funny as well.
This story’s main focus was Sadie and Heath’s relationship but that doesn’t mean Connealy can’t weave others into it. I really liked Sadie’s siblings Justin and Cole and can’t wait to see where the next books take them.
I liked how the “conflict” of this book didn’t end at the end of the book. It looks like the same conflict will be weaved through the rest of the series. I really liked the layers to this story it was good but yet still a light enough read I could just relax with and bring on vacation with me.
Overall this book had Connealy’s style written all over it. It was a light and fun read. A good dose of romance with a mix of danger. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
