No Way Up

No Way Up
The Cimarron Legacy #1
Mary Connealy
Chance, the owner of Cimarron Ranch, is badly hurt in an avalanche. The quick work of Heath, a ranch hand, is the only thing that saves him. But Chance is still not out of the woods and the local doctor decides the only way to save his leg is get him immediately to Denver by train. His children learn of Chance's peculiar requirements from Heath after his departure. All three must stay on the ranch and work if they don't want the ranch going to their lazy cousin. Their father hopes to bring them all back together and rekindle their love for the land that's been in the family for years. But a killer is on the loose and Heath may be the only outsider they can trust to help them solve an old murder and keep from being murdered themselves.

This was a fast-paced suspense novel with history and romance thrown in. The characters were well developed. The plot was detailed and kept me guessing. There was a lot of information about the local area, the generations who'd been in possession of the ranch in the past, and the details explaining one of the characters who was from another series. It felt like the author was setting the reader up for the next few books in the series. This book didn't have the same feel as her other books, but it was still good. There were some errors, which surprised me since Bethany doesn't usually have them in their books. Overall, I enjoyed this story and look forward to reading the next book in the series.

I received this book free of charge from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
