My review : Roping Ray McCullen by Rita Herron (Heroes of Horseshoe Creek #3)
Lot of mystery. You know some of who the bad guys are but you don't know which crimes they committed and who the others you can't trust.
Characters from previous books and plenty of new characters too. Ray is the third son. He has come home because his father is dying. He has not got along with his father because he knows some of his secrets. His father dies before he can tell him everything. Ray is a P.I.
Scarlet Lovett, shows up on the ranch two weeks after the funeral with a letter from Joe McCullen. Telling that Joe thought of her as a daughter. She was raised by Barbra and Joe's other son Bobby and they all were in the will.
Someone is trying to kill Scarlet. and stop her from receiving what Joe left her. Scarlet is a social worker and helps at the group home that she lived in till Joe took her out of it and arranged for her to live with Barbra.
There is a lot of drama, some danger, romance. There is one love scene. It leaves you wanting to come back to find out more secrets that Joe had.
I was given Roping Ray McCullen to read for free in exchange for a honest review from NetGalley and Harlequin.
