Texas Ranger Showdown

GIVEAWAY
DALEY, MARGARET
TEXAS RANGER SHOWDOWN

"Stop me."
She was taunted by a killer.

Margaret Daley's thrilling Lone Star Justice series continues, this time pitting radio therapist Dr. Caitlyn Rhods against a methodical murderer. First, her patients are found dead, then the mocking phone calls start. The evidence is pointing Texas Ranger Ian Pierce to one conclusion: he must protect Caitlyn from becoming this vicious killer's next victim...before he loses the woman he once loved - for good.

My Review:

Honestly, just the name Margaret Daley guarantees an exceptional read and she does it again with this gripping stalkerish romantic suspense. This is a slow-burn kind of suspense, with emphasis on the investigation and not as much on the cat-and-mouse chase scenes we typically see in a Love Inspired Suspense. I really enjoyed the change of pace and the ample opportunity Daley provides for readers to figure out clues right along side Caitlyn and Ian.

And there's plenty of time to enjoy watching this hero and heroine get reacquainted with each other after years apart. They weren't quite high school sweethearts but their lifelong friendship was on the cusp of morphing into something more before career choices took them in opposite directions. It doesn't take long for the spark to reignite -- especially with two best-friend grannies providing lots of helpful hints. Sally and Emma were a riot and helped bring some comic relief to these dark times.

Romance and suspense build as the investigation grows more complicated and then it all comes together with startling clarity that left me thinking, "I should have seen that!" Luckily Ian was just as in the dark as I eas so I didn't feel bad -- I mean he gets paid the big bucks to be a Texas Ranger after all!

A riveting read that will keep you frantically turning pages until the very end.

  2. I think I have read something by Margaret and felt it was a very good read. Can I blame senior moments, as a very "young" senior? I am trying to branch out more in my reading, including some Christian suspense that maybe won't keep me hearing noises in the night! Thanks for the review. I hope you are managing adequately this week...well, you know what I am trying to say.

    1. lol -- perhaps your young senior moment was really a reader kafuffle moment. I've had those too. :-) This is a good suspense for you, CC -- it won't creep you out even though it involves murder...if that makes any sense. Good luck!

  4. First off, I love the cover. There's something about the mansion in the background and the longhorns up front that speaks money but I earned it to me.

    Next I love a story that throws you for a few loops as you play detective along with the characters in the book which is what "TEXAS RANGER SHOWDOWN" sounds like it does.

    All in all, this sounds like a book that I'd LOVE to read and I appreciate the chance to win a copy.
