Title: No Cowboys No Angels
Author: Petie McCarty
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense
No Cowboys No Angels . . . A cozy romantic mystery with suspense from The Mystery Angel Romances series. An angel hidden in every book . . . it's up to the reader to figure out who.
Kellen Brand's inheritance turns out to be a whopper—one dilapidated farm in West Virginia and one guardian angel!
Since Kellen is convinced no sane woman would choose to live in Riverside, she vows to sell her farm and quick. Her handsome neighbor Luke Kenyon must block the farm sale or risk exposure of his family's secrets. While Kellen has located one potential buyer, she faces a town full of objectors. Someone is trying to frighten her off, and Luke is forced to step in and rescue her more than once.
Unfortunately, Kellen can't seem to stay out of trouble. She stumbles onto a clandestine hazardous-waste-dumping operation next to her farm, and she prays Luke has one more rescue up his sleeve. It's her only hope of staying alive.
Unless her mother really did leave her a guardian angel . . .
When Kellen’s mother died and left her and her brother the run-down farm in West Virginia, the last place Kellen wanted to be is back where she was ridiculed for being poor, her hometown. But off she goes to clean it up and sell it to a uber-rich developer. But the longer she’s in town, the less her childhood memories haunt her. She reconnects with friends and meets handsome cowboy Luke Kenyon, a man who comes to her rescue more than once.
Luke is drawn to Kellen for reasons unknown to him. She’s a spitfire and makes him lose his temper at the slightest provocation. But he tells himself he won’t wind up alone and bitter, like his father. But circumstances throw him and Kellen together, and when her life is threatened, he acts. Can he let down his walls and let love in or will he continue to be stubborn like a mule?
Wow! What a gripping and emotional romantic suspense. Petie McCarty weaves a romance between two strong personalities with plenty of chemistry between them to light the whole county on fire. The dialogue made me laugh as well as cry. Emotions run high in this story and there’s many layers too. It’s about coming home, dealing with childhood bullies and letting go of the past. It’s about forgiveness, trusting in love and choosing your destiny. Trying to figure out who the guardian angel may be was a bonus. A must read, especially for romantic suspense fans. Can’t wait for the next book in the series!
Favorite Character/Quote: Luke. I found him to be mysterious yet every woman’s book boyfriend. He’s got layers and his protective streak comes out in weird ways whenever Kellen is near.
