Hidden Ranch Peril is written by Michelle Aleckson. This is her first Love Inspired Suspense story. This was a very action packed book with a lot of twists and turns thrown into it.
Talia is a veterinarian. She’s grown up with her Aunt Sally. Talia grew up feeling different then other kids. She was told her family died in a car accident and her Aunt stepped in to raise her. They moved around a lot and Talia had trouble connecting with anyone human. However she had a strong passion and connection to horses and other animals. When she is visiting her Aunt’s ranch one day she hears three gunshots. The gunshots were a signal that Talia needs to run to neighboring ranch for help. So she does, on her beloved horse Peaches.
Noah Landers is a former marine who Carrie’s around a huge weight on his shoulders. He feels that his name is tarnished since his father was suspected to have been involved in Talia’s families deaths. Although he knew her as Anna. Her uncle, is looking for her and offering a huge reward to locate her. Noah has a lot to potentially use and the reward would be helpful.
Talia runs right into Noah at the neighboring ranch. He recognizes her immediately. He wants to help find her Aunt Sally and he also tells Talia more about her past.
However someone wants to kill Talia. They won’t stop until they do. Noah wants to keep her safe but is afraid of letting her down. It seemed that wherever they went danger was sure to follow.
I enjoyed this book. I enjoyed trying to figure out who was behind everything. Who killed Talia’s family? Was Noah’s dad responsible for it? Can Talia and Noah figure it out in time and find Aunt Sally?
The author hit it out of the park with this book. This was a book I read in one sitting and didn’t want to be interrupted while I read. The characters are well written. The plot is suspenseful and full of heart pounding action.
Thank You to the author for allowing me to read a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
