Too Far Down

GIVEAWAY
CONNEALY, MARY
TOO FAR DOWN

With danger drawing ever closer, the Boden clan risk losing their ranch forever.

Having returned home to the ranch, Cole Boden finds himself caught between missing his time back east and appreciating all that New Mexico Territory offers. Sure, he fights with his siblings now and then, but he does care for them. He enjoys his new job running the mine and, when he's honest, he admits that Melanie Blake captures his interest in a way no other woman ever has.

Melanie has been a friend to the Bodens forever. A cowgirl who is more comfortable with horses than people, she never expected to find herself falling for someone, particularly for refined Cole Boden, a Harvard graduate who can't seem to make up his mind about about staying in New Mexico.

When a deadly explosion damages the CR Mining Company, the Bodens realize their troubles are not behind them as they thought. Shadowy forces are still working against them. Melanie is determined to help Cole and the family finally put an end to the danger that's threatened all of them. But will putting herself in harm's way be more dangerous than anyone expected?

My Review:

"An explosion brought Cole Boden to his feet." And with that desperate opening line we're off to the races in the action-packed, comedy-laced grand finale to the Cimmarron Legacy series. The Bodens are a larger than life family and conjure up images of vintage TV Westerns like the Cartwright family (Bonanza) and the Barkley clan (Big Valley.) You don't need to read the first two books in order to enjoy this one, though if you enjoy a good classic Western you'll want to read them all!

Connealy knows how to pair danger and mayhem with wise-cracking humour. Mel and Cole are a hoot! Both equally tough and stubborn and noble of heart....and uncomfortably attracted to each other. Something that takes them by surprise and must be sorted out amidst flying bullets and ominous explosions. They are besieged by a host of ornery villains with a wicked sense of justice and a determination to wipe the Bodens off the face of the earth.

Breathlessly intense with a blockbuster style ending that will bring you to your feet as you clap and cheer (and catcall whistle in the appropriate spots.) Awesomesauce all around.
