Deadly Christmas Pretense Cover

A cowboy to her rescue…but she’s not who he thinks she is.

Posing as her sister for Christmas is the only way to save her, but Maggie Lofton needs help—even if it means working with her twin’s cowboy ex-boyfriend, Liam Pike. But between the bull’s-eye on her back and the dangerous connection she’s forming with Liam, Maggie’s mission is harder than expected. Will their tenuous partnership be enough to shield her when the killer closes in?

Book #2 in the Roughwater Ranch Cowboys series

Book Review:

Taking her sister’s place at Christmas has never been so fraught with peril.

Meeting this group of cowboys in Danger on the Ranch, I knew I’d be back for more. Luke’s story has been especially heartbreaking as he faces his greatest fear. This has been a book element I fall in love with every time. When a strong hero is brought to his knees, that is when his true grit comes to light and the heroines who walk beside them shine the brightest.

Giving up is easy. It’s getting back up that’s hard.

Dana Mentink knows her stuff. I couldn’t have asked for a better rapid-fire suspense with a mix of romance. And someone needs to give Jingles another candy cane. She got me with the villain. Luckily I love surprises. I can’t wait for the next book.

If you enjoy high-octane action and a healthy dose of cowboy romance, don’t miss out on this book.

I requested a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. I was not required to leave a positive review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

More from Dana

I just love Christmas, don’t you? In our area we have a lovely holiday train. It’s an old steam type train which is decked out in lights for festive holiday tours. I was so thrilled that this cover features just such a train. Of course, in the novel the train is the scene of hair raising danger! Maggie, our heroine in this novel, is a cook. She serves up some mouth watering dishes (when she’s not dodging a killer.) I thought perhaps you might enjoy a Mentink holiday family recipe! God bless you as we enter this holiday season!
