Justice at Cardwell Ranch by BJ Daniels

41/2 STARS This novel kept me guessing until the end. I thought I had guessed right but no way did I get it at all right. The power we give people from high school can be long time felt after. Dana Cardwell Savage was away from her ranch along with her husband and two kids. She at her doctors when he put her on bed rest for the rest of her pregnacy. She was having twins and they want to be surprised to thier sex. They already have a girl and a boy. Dana had inheirited the family ranch and split the profits with her sister and brothers. Six years ago they tried to force the sell of the ranch but she found her mother's new will leaving it in Dana's hands. She has not seen her brothers and sister since. Jordan Cardwell now divorced was at the family cemeatary when he saw someone on out riding a horse who looks familar. Then he realized she was a deputy that had booked him in the past. He was back at home for a high school reunion because a old friend wanted to talk about how he thought another old friend who comitted sucide might have been murdered. Liza Turner was riding a horse on her boss's ranch when she sees someone who should not be thier. Liza is Deputy Marshal and calls her boss to let him know who was on the ranch and she was watching him to see what he was up too. Hud Savage is the Marshal and father of two with twins on the way. As he is bringing home his wife and children he hears that Jordan is back. Then when they get to the ranch house a beatup car and his sister-in-law Stacy is back with a surprise. He does not trust her because of her lies in the past Dana and he were kept apart for five years. Liza is tailing Jordan when he goes and hikes by the falls and when she hears shots she hurries up and sees him over the dead body of his friend. Liza asks him what he is doing and Jordan tells her that Alex asked him to meet him thier. He did not tell him why he thought that Tanner death was murder instead of sucide like most thought. Thier are a lot of suspects of who killed Alex and was Tanner really murdered all those years ago too? As Liza tries to look into both murders she goes with Jordan to his reunion to talk to those around both guys. Hud does not trust Stacy and is looking into her past. Is that baby really hers? He thinks she is lying to them. He does not trust Jordan either. The body count rises as more questions are being asked and things are being brought into the light of just what happened at the time of Tanner's death. It kept me guessing and interested did not want to put the book down till I finshed reading it. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley. 09/03/2012 PUB Harlequin Imprint Harlequin Intrigue 224 pages
