A Mountain Ranch Novel

Willa Brand

July 28, 2020


Blurb: As an only child of a bold Colorado rancher, Laney McRae has grown up confident in herself and fiercely self-reliant. Romance hasn’t entered her world since the disastrous end to her high school love affair, and she has all but given up on men. When a new sheriff arrives in town he instantly ignites a flame she’s never before encountered, but the new relationship may not survive the demands of her forward personality. When strange events begin to unfold on the ranch, it quickly becomes clear that she is being targeted by someone with a deadly intent, and she struggles to assert her independence amid the turmoil. As events escalate, she will be left fighting not only for the love she deserves, but also for her own life.

This is the second book in the Mountain Ranch series, of which both books follow an independent storyline.  As in Refuge (see my review here), Willa’s writing glides over the pages of Switchback to unfold a romantic thriller. Laney, the main character, is coming to terms with an incident from her past when she meets the town sheriff, Nolan; they both feel an instant attraction. As their relationship grows Laney realises that she could build a future with Nolan. However, someone has other ideas, and Laney finds her life in danger. Laney makes it clear that she can take care of herself and does not need rescuing especially from the hunky sheriff Nolan. Events unfold with Laney soon accepting that we all need rescuing sometimes.  Another good read from Willa Brand! Kept me guessing until the end.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
