Lock, Stock and McCullen by Rita Herron

Don't miss USA TODAY bestselling author Rita Heron's new miniseries, The Heroes of Horseshoe Creek…
Sheriff Maddox McCullen cradled Rose Worthington, every protective fiber of his being firing as she shuddered against him. She told him how she had been brutally attacked and had killed the man—her fiancé!—in self defense. But when Maddox investigates the crime scene, he finds nothing. No bullet casing, no blood, no body.

The deeper Maddox probes, the more questions arise, revealing a mysterious past that shatters all Rose has ever known. Caught in the crosshairs of escalating danger—and his powerful desire for Rose—Maddox vows to protect her. He'll risk his life to find a desperate enemy who will stop at nothing to keep the past buried.

My review: Lock, Stock and McCullen by Rita Herron

4 stars
There was so much mystery, murder, violence, suspense , action and romance.  It seemed that there was never a dull moment.  I did not  know what would happen next. There was one love scene that was easy to skip.
 Rose Worthington thought she was going to get married. Instead she found out that he was planning to murder her.  She fought back and thought she had killed him.

Rose was not close to her parents and resented them always moving.  She wanted to stay in one place. She opened a antique store.

Rose when she got back to her house and called  Sheriff Maddox McCullen.  She told him what happened and where it happened but there was no blood and no body.  No proof that her fiance was who he said he was.
Maddox McCullen was also running his family ranch.  His father was dying and wanted to see his two other sons that had not been home for years before he died.  He tried to get a hold of them.
I did not want to put the story down till I had finished reading it.  I would read more books in this series.
I was given Lock, Stock and McCullen to read by Harlequin and Net Galley and in return I agreed to give honest review of it.
