Deadly Christmas Pretense: Book #2 in the Roughwater Ranch Cowboys series By Dana Mentink

I received this book for no charge from Celebrate Lit Blogger program and the author for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own. 


Book Description: 

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?



My Thoughts: 
  
Deadly Christmas Pretense is the latest book in Dana Mentik series,Roughwater Ranch Cowboys, and it is great. Dana Mentik is one of my favorite authors so I jumped at the opportunity to read and review this book.  This book might not be long but you cannot judge the book by its size. The pages of this book it is filled with so much action and suspense you won't believe it!! Dana Mentik writes with authority about Cowboys, ranching, Green Berets, animals especially those on ranches and dogs, of course.  I love Dana Mentink's style of writing, she puts her readers right there in the book, experiencing everything the characters do. The characters in this book are well written and very real people dealing with extraordinary circumstances. I found myself drawn to Maggie Lofton. She is brave and her faith is so admirable. I could NOT put this book down. I had the pleasure of reading the first book in this series but this book can definitely be read as a stand alone.  I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Suspense stories, you will not be disappointed. I cannot wait to read more from Dana Mentik. I give this book 5 STARS.

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!
