Texas Ranger Brody Calhoun is with his parents in west Texas when an unexpected attack injures the brother of Rebecca Morgan, Brody's high school sweetheart. The local sheriff, a good friend, asks for Brody s help. At first, it seems like an open-and-shut case. As Brody digs deeper, he realizes the attack may be related to an organized crime trial Rebecca will be overseeing. With Rebecca's help, he compiles evidence involving cattle rustling, bribery, and dirty payoffs that shatter the entire community and put Rebecca directly in the line of fire. Brody expects to protect her. What he never expects is to fall for Rebecca all over again, or for a murder to throw the case wide open. Is Brody's faith strong enough to withstand not only deep-rooted corruption and cattle rustling, but also love?
This is the third in a series and I have to say I enjoyed this book as much as the other two. I was kept guessing as to who was causing problems. It shows how revenge can eat away at a person to the point where they act without really thinking it through or caring who they hurt. I like seeing how the Texas rangers work and I liked Brody. I also Like how Rebecca is a strong women who cares deeply for her nieces. The book kept me on my toes and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
