GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT
That was the McAllister family motto, wasn’t it? Cole Daniels would never forget it – no matter how interested he was in pretty, kind Leigh McAllister. Thanks to lies told by her uncle, Cole’s father was wrongly imprisoned. Now that Cole and Leigh were both back in Wolf Creek, Wyoming, he was sure Leigh held the key to clearing his father’s good name. But his quest for justice was complicated by the escalating sabotage of Leigh’s vet clinic and by his growing feelings for her.
This is the second book in the Snow Canyon Ranch series. Again I was impressed with this wonderful romantic suspense. Ms. Rustand brought Leigh McAllister and Cole Daniels to life. Fighting against ill-feelings that happened many years ago, their chemistry, and desire to follow the Lord, still brings them close. The explicit accurate details of working with animals, added to bringing this story to life. From beginning to end, I felt like I was fighting for Leigh’s vet practice, and Cole’s fight to find out what really happened the night his father was accused of murder. Did Cole’s father really kill that man? Why is someone trying to sabotage Leigh’s practice? A turn of events will keep you turning pages.
Even if you didn’t read the first book – you’ll be taken in by this book. Several characters were brought back in this book, however, Ms. Rustand wrote in such away, you will still read this book and love it.
