Texas Ranger Buck Morgan has been assigned to calm the ranchers after Leta Dennings husband is murdered at the start of the Mason County or Hoo Doo, War. Leta wants to see the person or persons responsible for the death of her husband to pay with their life. Buck is there to make sure there is no more blood shed. While he is there he might as well do the right thing for the widow and help her with the ranch when possible. If Leta finds out that he is related to German family that he suspects in the murder of her husband she will not trust him or allow him anywhere near her or her ranch. Searching for the truth is never easy especially if your heart is involved.
The author has added another great book to this series. It is full of intrigue, deceit and vengeance. Also reconciliation, forgiveness, love and trust that all is in God's hands for peace and harmony among the ranchers. This book was just a hard to put down as the others I have read in this series. So glad there were six books in this series.
I highly recommend this book.
I rated this book a 5 out of 5.
