Rekindling old flames can be dangerous…

Beau Garrett may look rough around the edges, but under that exterior beats a heart of gold–a heart that was broken when his high school sweetheart disappeared days before graduation. Years have passed, but Beau’s never forgotten the fiery-haired girl who left him high and dry.

Dixie Moore has her reasons for being angry with Beau. When a family emergency calls Dixie back to her hometown, she brings with her an explosive secret that could divide them for good–if the culprit behind a recent crime spree doesn’t get her first. It’s up to Beau to unmask this dangerous criminal…and keep Dixie out of the crosshairs.

My Rating:  4 stars

WHEN TO CALL A COWBOY is a story that while I enjoyed parts of it, I was divided about other parts.  And I really can’t explain why because that would mean spoilers – and I don’t willingly do spoilers.  Although I will say I was firmly on Beau’s side on this one – Dixie, well, I never warmed up to her and will have to be content that the hero loves her to pieces in spite of her actions.

Beau and Dixie’s story is full of danger, deceit, misunderstandings, and murder.  There is suspense but it’s not what drives this story – that would be Dixie and Beau’s past and how they work to resolve that hot mess.  There were characters that I loathed, simply for their selfish decisions that affected so many other lives without thought or care.  Once again the Garrett family pulled me in with their closeness and antics.  WHEN TO CALL A COWBOY is a good story, I simply couldn’t connect with the heroine.  If you enjoy Modern Western Romance with a touch of Suspense then you’d enjoy this one.  I’d recommend the entire series – and I’m looking forward to the Christmas release later this year.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story.  It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
