Nothing will stop a Cahill cowboy from protecting what’s his
After a rocky marriage and even rockier divorce, Sheriff Flint Cahill finally has something good in his life again. Maggie Thompson’s down-to-earth charm and beautiful smile hooked him from the start. When she disappears on the day they plan to start their lives together, all signs point to abduction—and his ex-wife.
Functioning on adrenaline and instinct, Flint must call on his every resource to bring Maggie home before it’s too late. His past and future are blurred. Maggie’s only chance at surviving her abductor and a raging winter storm depends on an old vendetta that could destroy it all. But the Cahills don’t give up easily, and Flint’s love will have to be strong enough to conquer anything, including the unimaginable.
Review: It was nice to return to Montana, the Cahill Ranch and the Cahill family once again especially since it’s around Christmas. Cowboy’s Legacy is Flint and Maggie’s story but showcases the sheriff’s office, his ex-wife, Flint’s family, the town they live in as well as some of Maggie’s past. The book drew me in from the first page to the last and it’s like I hadn’t left the small town of Gilt Edge, Montana. The story also takes place in Wyoming and North Dakota and not a beat was missed. The book had many story lines going on, some dark and some light, but were woven seamlessly together and picked up where Outlaw’s Honor, the second book in the series, left off.
While there were mysteries to be solved about crimes committed, especially who abducted Maggie, both Flint, the sheriff, and Harp, one of the deputies, were not supposed to be involved in the police work for different reasons. Throughout the book, Flint’s love for Maggie showed through and he did everything he could to find her before it was too late. Harp and Vicki were back with the continuation of their bumbling romance and even Jenna who had disappeared for several months was key to the plot. It was nice to see the Cahill family always there for each other and the support they gave to one another.
The descriptions of the lands, the snow, the cold and the mountains were breathtaking and made me feel that I was there. There were crimes committed, abductions, shootouts, family and friends, along with tears, fear, horror, angst, sadness, disbelief, happiness, laughter and love. The story flowed nicely and the characters had a depth to them that we uncovered a little at a time. There was nice closure and several happily ever afters with the chance for several more. I can’t wait to be back at the Cahill Ranch since there are still three brothers that need their stories told. I for one can’t wait for more.
I need to read the first book in the series, Renegade’s Pride, as well as the 2.5 novella in the Cahill Ranch series, Cowboy’s Reckoning. Cowboy’s Legacy is only the fourth book I have read by Daniels but I have added a few of her books to my always growing TBR pile.
Favorite Quote: Flint walked her out to the edge of a rise. Below them, the town of Gilt Edge gleamed. Past it, the mountains rose to surround them.
NYT and USA Today Bestselling author B.J. Daniels was born in Texas but moved with her family to Montana at the age of five. Her first home was a cabin in the Gallatin Canyon and later a lake house on Hebgen Lake outside of West Yellowstone.
Most of her books are set in Montana, a place she loves. She lives now in a unique part of the state with her husband and three Springer Spaniels.
When she isn’t writing, she loves to play tennis, boat, camp, quilt and snowboard. There is nothing she enjoys more than curling up with a good book.
