A bride becomes a target in New York Times bestselling author B.J. Daniels’s latest can’t-miss suspense
Tragedy sent Deidre “Drey” Hunter running from rancher Hawk Cahill and into the arms of a sleek businessman who promised her a new life. But dreams of Manhattan days and cosmopolitan nights shatter when he brings her back to an ultramodern paradise in her hometown of Gilt Edge—and vanishes on their wedding night.
Taunted by seclusion and silence, Drey starts to doubt everything…including her sanity. Only Hawk, the stubborn cowboy from her school days, believes the threats are real and that someone is ready to kill. But is he willing to forgive the past if it means ending her nightmare?
Rancher’s Dream was full of suspense and mystery-much more than I expected! I thought it would be a story about a woman who has to move back to her home town and faces a man she used to love. I was very, very wrong. It was a good sort of surprise!
Drey has returned to her tiny hometown for her wedding. She thought by marrying Ethan she would be living the high life in Manhattan or something. However, after her wedding she finds herself alone in their new home because Ethan has disappeared. I thought this would be a story about a woman abandoned by her husband slowly falling back in love with her first love. Nope. Strange things start happening. Thankfully, Hawk lives next door. Honestly, this book kept me guessing the whole time. I felt like I was right on the cusp of figuring it out, only to realize I was just pulling on a thread to nothing.
My biggest struggle with Drey and Hawk was their initial break up a miscommunication. I loathe that trope and I find it really irritating. I think it creates this lingering bitterness that a conversation could clear up.
If you like second chance romances with a big, heaping dose of crazy mystery, Rancher’s Dream is a great pick! Like I said, this book was not at all what I expected but it was a delightful find!
