Editorial Reviews

Review

"4 stars...A battered, nearly broken man, a feisty, self-reliant woman and a sickly evil marauder are only three of the great elements of this terrifyingly intense tale." - RT Book Reviews

"4 1/2 Stars...Wonderfully romantic and beautifully written... exciting and tense..."  - Cataromance.com

"The suspense plot in this book is extremely well done. It's smart, unique and keeps you guessing about who the threat really is...Really, the suspense here is top notch. " - Cheeky Reads (Smart Bitches, Trashy Books - 2011 RITA Challenge)

Why I Read this Book: Case File: Canyon Creek Wyoming is a book from Harlequin's Intrigue line, a line of romantic suspense novels. Back in my earlier reading days, I was into suspense and mysteries like books from Dean Koontz. But then I discovered Nicholas Sparks and realized that romance was my liking as well. I didn't realize until this year that these two genres that I enjoy so much could blend and compliment one another so well.

What I Liked: Case File: Canyon Creek Wyoming had the perfect blend of suspense and romance. Neither of the two elements overshadowed the other. I loved the characters of Hannah and Riley. These two are both realistic people with believable emotions.

The POV was told in third person narrative for Hannah and Riley. There was also little snippets of the story told from the villain's POV. I like that the villain's POV wasn't overbearing in Case File: Canyon Creek Wyoming, like I find in some novels. It can be helpful and it can bring the story forward when we see what the bad guy is thinking and/or doing from time to time but I don't want their POV to be a main focal point, especially in a romantic suspense novel. It was quick, to the point and the story got right back to our hero and heroine.

What I Didn't Like: I would have like to have seen a little more sizzle between Hannah and Riley.

Overall Impression: This was a fast read; I read the book in less than 24 hours. Seriously, I can't remember that last time I read a book so quickly. I was so engaged into the storyline and with what was going to happen between Hannah and Riley. I am definitely looking forward to more books from this author and from Harlequin's Intrigue line!

I rarely read romance novels or even fiction in general, as my handle notes, but this was suggested to me by someone whose opinions on good writing I trust and it was a good read. The story was well crafted and compelling, and if you enjoy suspense, mystery and romance I think you'll like this book.

I couldn't wait to dive into this first official book in the Cooper Justice series! I'd met Riley, our hero, in the book Cowboy Alibi and was intrigued. That he got his own story thrilled me to the bone. He was obviously tortured, sad and lonely... a widower whose beloved wife was taken from him in an unsolved, violent crime.

When Hannah Cooper is attacked in a way that mirrors Riley's wife's death, he inserts himself into the case. Unfortunately, the trauma from the vicious attack on Hannah makes her memory of details a little blurry, but she's determined to remember anything she can to help find the man who tried to kidnap and murder her.

After another attempt on her life, in the hospital no less, it's determined that the safest place for her is to hide out on Riley's ranch. He's not officially part of the investigation, and the killer shouldn't find her there.

Hannah is one of the strongest heroines I've read about in some time. It might stem from being the only girl in a large family otherwise populated by men. Whatever the reason, she was an admirable heroine, and one I wouldn't mind my own daughter emulating. When she's attacked, she never gives up. When she's threatened again, she stands strong despite being afraid. She does what needs doing and takes reasonable risks to help catch a killer.

Riley is the perfect tortured hero. For three long years he's put his life on hold in order to find out who killed his wife, Emily. He loved her beyond belief, and finds it hard to believe that he'll ever feel the same about another woman... until he meets Hannah. A recurring theme throughout the book is the fact that Hannah, while very different than Emily, is someone the dead woman would have liked and admired.

Another good book of Harlequin Intrigue. I find it very hard to find ones that I can read without finding too many flaws.

Hannah has come to Wyoming from Alabama to have time to herself. A few years ago she found out a day before her wedding that her fiancé still loves a woman from his past and it still hurts her to think about it. As she is driving alone on a road one day, she is attacked with pepper spray but manages to save herself and crashes into a tree near a truck stop. When she wakes up, she doesn't recall everything that happened during the attack.

Riley lost his wife to a serial killer, or at least he believes there is a serial killer while the FBI refuse to connect several murders that took place in the past few years. He believes Hannah was attacked by the same man and has her stay at his home for the rest of the week that she had planned to stay in Wyoming. As they fight their attraction, they try to figure out the details that Hannah can't immediately remember from her attack. Hannah knows that Riley loved his wife deeply and is still grieving for her and it is the reason that makes him extra focused in finding the killer. Despite knowing that, she becomes intimate with him later on.

There was only one flaw, or one thing that did annoy me. Before going back home, Hannah decides to bait the killer by talking about her attack. The plan is that she will only give a few details to the newspapers so that he can come to her current location. That's sensible. However, the fact that Hannah talked happily about where her hometown is and what she does there and nobody made a big deal about it, did not make sense. The authorities tell her that she will be perfectly safe when she goes back, nobody will follow her home.
