Moving to Briarwood, Colorado had not been in Gilly Casey’s original life plan. Sure, she’d dreamed of owning a horse ranch, but as kind of a part-time gig, in Topanga Canyon maybe. But the best laid plans of this high-powered L.A. attorney turn to dust when more than her bar card is threatened. Fleeing to a life she had never imagined quickly becomes a cat and mouse game just to stay alive.
Luke Hudson’s road to Briarwood was no less bumpy. Hiding from his own demons, he’s no longer able to float below the radar when he recognizes the feisty Miz Casey is in more trouble than she’ll admit. Donning the hero mantle years after he’d shed that skin, Luke realizes that rescuing Gilly might just save him, too.
With so many secrets between them, does love stand a chance? When the past trains its loaded gun on them, truth may not be enough to safeguard Gilly and Luke.
About The Author:
Joan Bird has been telling stories for years. In her first incarnation she was a singer/song writer with a rock band (yes, her Fender guitars are awesome), then she started writing books, mostly for herself.
Joan’s storytelling is legendary amongst her family and friends. For years she’s been including short stories with her holiday greetings each December and for years her friends and family have been encouraging her to write a book. Little did they know she had a storehouse of novels just waiting to be read by more than just her mailing list.
A couple of years ago she began working on polishing the stories she had already written, which sparked new ideas that led to writing more novels. Tumbleweed Heights is her first published book, but there are more on the way and she can’t wait for you to read them.
Oh good gracious! Joan Bird has instantly made me a new fan from page one of this laugh-out-loud read! I loved every emotionally laughable moment of this story.
Gilly is a transplanted LA Lawyer who is not quite used to living in the country. But, she’s gonna give it a try. Then along comes Luke. Sexy, hunky, gorgeous, and downright drool worthy. When Luke arrives on Gilly’s ranch, he comes bearing a gift, per orders of the town vet, Doc. His name is Boy. A big hearted, adorable dog.
There’s no denying the attraction that Gilly feels when she lays eyes on the tall, dark cowboy. In fact, it seems that all she can do is keep falling on her backside! Strong hands lift her up, and well, the sizzling heat ensues!
But, there’s one problem…there are things happening around town and there’s something not quite right with Max Tunney and the Sheriff. The story takes on twists and turns, leaving the reader completely satisfied with suspenseful elements, and some sparks of passion between completely lovable characters!
This is most definitely a 5 Book worthy read, and one that I highly recommend to everyone looking for that relaxing, fast paced read filled with romance and fun, mystery and wit. Joan Bird is on my list to read more of her works, and this book is staying on my eReader for along time to come! Great job, Ms. Bird!
