An Officer and a Maverick by Teresa Southwick (Montana Mavericks: What Happened at the Wedding? - Book 3)

The Curious Case of Detective Dreamy

Rust Creek Ramblings

By now, you've all heard about Lani Dalton, everyone's favorite Ace in the Hole bartender. Observed singing and dancing fully clothed in the park fountain on the Fourth of July, she was hauled off to jail dripping wet by dashing detective Russ Campbell. Readers, what would you do if you found yourselves in the strong arms of the law?

Since then, Lani's been reluctant to revisit the Case of the Spiked Wedding Punch. Because helping the arrestingly handsome Russ crack the case could risk breaching family confidentiality—and Lani never breaks a promise! So why does Russ keep showing up at the Ace? We at The Gazette would never kiss and tell, but reports of Lani and Russ's mutual distrust are greatly exaggerated…

My review: An Officer and a Maverick by Teresa Southwick (Montana Mavericks: What Happened at the Wedding? - Book 3)


This is the third book to the series and first I have read.  I have enjoyed it and want to go back and read the books I have missed.

Lani Dalton  was feeling good.  She saw her brothers throwing a fist and The detective Russ Campbell heading to go arrest Anderson.  Lani decided to distract him so she got in the fountain and started to spray him with water and staying out his reach till she fell and took him down too.

Lani works on her family ranch and part time at the local bar.  She was only drinking the punch at the wedding in the park on the fourth of July.  She has had a bad relationship and is weary but not that night.

Russ Campbell has come back to Montana and is a police detective in a neighboring area.  He helps out some in Rust Creek Falls when needed.  He has a problem trusting women.  He knows Lani is keeping some secrets about that night she locked him in the jail.

Russ has been asked to work more in Rust Creek Falls to find out who wanted the town drunk.  He has also been asked to work with Lani because people will talk to her and she knows everyone in town.

There is a couple of love scene and the first one is right at front of the story.  Lots of drama, a community of characters that are back from last year about rebuilding the town after the flood.

I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Harlequin.  In return I agreed to give a honest review of An Officer and a Maverick.
