Having read the previous books in this series, I was eager to read Cowboy Bodyguard to spend time with Dana Mentink’s familiar characters and meet new protagonists, Jack and Shannon. The premise was intriguing, and the action started on the third page. A fast-paced read, the suspense rarely let up. Subplots and twists created depth to the story, and I kept turning pages to see how things would turn out. The book was obviously well-researched for the many facets of the story from being an ER physician intern to life on a horse ranch. The bad guys were believable and I felt the danger they presented to the characters. The cowboys were heroic without being cliché and can come to my rescue anytime! Highly recommended.
I received a copy of this book for free from CelebrateLit Publicity, and a positive review was not required. All opinions expressed are my own.
Guest Post from Dana MentinkI’ve spent a bit of time in emergency rooms lately. Not to complain, mind you. The asthma related treatments worked like a charm and we were blessed by good care, so I am not grateful. There’s a bonus, too. The emergency room is a great place for people watching! Hour upon hour I spent surveying patients, relatives, nurses and doctors. I came away pondering what it must be like to work in the strange bustle that is an emergency room. That’s where character Shannon Livingston was born.
The E.R doc and nurses must be brilliant problem solvers with nerves of steel because they never know what will roll through their doors. Since they are not responsible for follow up care, they have only a short term relationship with their patients. But what would happen, my fictional mind wanted to know, if one emergency room treatment ensnared Shannon in a “run for your life” scenario? And what if her incredible life saving skills weren’t nearly enough to save her own life, or the baby she’s suddenly become responsible for? Ah me! The perfect scenario for a suspense novel, no? I hope you enjoy Cowboy Bodyguard. I can promise it’s going to be a bumpy ride!
