This story is about Josh McKinnon (brother of Kade in Much Ado About Mavericks) and Pearl Jane Evans, aka Lady Pearl Montford. Josh is trying to start his own horse ranch when Lady Montford, a famous British actress, rolls into town on the stage to play the lead in the town's production of Much Ado About Nothing. While recovering from a gunshot wound received helping transport a bullion shipment, Josh was coerced into playing the lead male role in the play. When they first meet, they both think the other to be arrogant and almost insufferable, but when Josh is deputized and put in charge of keeping Lady Montford safe, their opinions begin to change. Not everything is always as it seems.
The writing is fantastic, the characters are relatable and you just get caught up in the story. It is filled with adventure and humor which had me giggling and laughing out loud at times. I love that Ms. Rogers incorporates the characters from the previous books in the series so we can catch up on their stories as well. You don't really need to read the previous books in the series to understand this one, but they are such great books, you should read them anyway. You won't be disappointed!
Josh McKinnon has just recovered from the gun shot he received in a previous book. He is out of sorts, though, because his family members have trapped him into playing the male lead in the local production of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, which will star the lovely and famous Lady Pearl Montford. He wants nothing to do with a snobby British woman, especially not after she insults his mother and him at Esther McKinnon’s book shop.
The townsfolk are as excited as Josh is disdainful. To make his mood even worse, Old Man Linstad reneged on his promise to sell him his ranch and now is only deeding over half the ranch adjoining Josh’s—and it’s not the half with the buildings. Oh, but he wants the same amount of cash.
Lady Jane carries a secret. She and her brother are really Pearl Jane and Jasper Evans from Kentucky. The pair formerly appeared in a Cossack’s trick riding show. She is especially gifted and loves to ride. For years she and Jasper have looked forward to owning their own ranch. They sent money to their grandfather to buy their yearned-for ranch. Their grandfather assures them he’s found them the perfect place.
In the meantime, Pearl and Jasper are searching for their long lost brother, Micah, who supposedly joined Pinkertons—or did he? When it appears their lives may be all set, an evil man appears from their past and threatens their future.
Trick riding, horse thieving, actress stalking, cowboy loving, This latest addition to the Hearts of Owyhee series is an exciting and fun read.
