Excellent book with terrific romance and a mystery that kept me guessing. Jackson and his son have come to Montana for his brother's wedding. One of the first people he meets is Allie, the wedding planner, who is looking very scared. Being the gentleman that he is, he wants to help her, but is also wary of getting involved.

I loved Jackson. He is a terrific father to his five year old son, if perhaps a little overprotective. He was badly burned by his ex-wife, who turned out to be an extremely se
B.J. Daniels blew me away with this masterfully crafted romantic suspense story!

I cannot tell you how many times I had to restrain myself from jumping ahead in the book because I was DYING to know what was going to happen! There’s no way I could describe this story without giving away spoilers so I’m going to refrain from details.

What I can tell you is that this book will knock your socks off! Jackson Cardwell is so dreamy! If you think chivalry is dead, you obviously haven’t met the Cardwell m

I love this series. Each book is a standalone, so the books can be read out of order.

Allie pulled me right into the story. Her husband is presumed dead from a bear attack, but his body was never found. She can't fall apart because she has to take care of her 4 year old daughter, Natalie. Allie is questioning her own sanity. Either someone is attempting to make her think she is going crazy or she really is. She finds stuff like her purse, and keys left in odd places. She finds doors open that sh

Another great Cardwell Ranch installment from B.J. Daniels!

Jackson Cardwell comes to Montana for his brother’s wedding. He only plans to stay long enough for the nuptials, but he meets the widowed wedding planner, Allie Taylor, and senses something is not quite right with her. Rather than question her sanity – as everyone else seems to be doing – Jackson feels that she’s being tormented by someone. The question is – who? BJ Daniels presents a number of good suspects from the miserable mother-in-

I had heard of the term "gaslighting" and had even read other books that talked about it but until this book, I had put two and two together! Now I KNOW what the term means for sure! Jackson comes to town for his brother's wedding. He meets the wedding planner, Allie, and he can tell that something very strange is going on with her. She is so "rattled" every time he meets her! Allie's husband is dead....he HAS to be why are all these crazy things happening to her?? Why is his shirt in ...more
"Wedding at Cardwell Ranch" by B.J. Daniels which I won through Goodreads Giveaways is a captivating and entertaining romance filled with mystery, betrayal and love. Set in Montana the story begins with Allie Taylor whose husband is missing and presumed dead. Torn by guilt and remorse because their marriage was failing, and with all the unusual incidents happening around her, she thinks she's losing her mind. The only joy in her life is her five year old daughter Natalie, and being hired to plan ...more

Slowly but surely the Cardwell Cousins are moving from Texas to Montana. Jackson Cardwell had a terrible marriage and an even worse divorce. He does have one good thing from his marriage and that is his son Ford. It is one reason he can identify with Allie, a young widow with a daughter. For the Cardwell’s it is all about family. Allie is all about family too but unfortunately she married into the wrong one. Someone is trying to make her think she is crazy so they can take her daughter. She does ...more

Jackson Cardwell is in Montana to attend his brother's wedding. Unlike his brother who has become enamored of both Montana and a local girl, Jackson has all intentions of returning home to Texas. After an ill-fated marriage and break-up, Jackson is definitely relationship shy and would prefer the status of single father of a young son, to that of his brother's taken status, until he sets eyes on the beauty of the wedding planner, Allie Taylor.

Allie Taylor has been widowed in unusual circumstance
Originally reviewed for Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and Fantasy.

Looking for an excellent Cowboy Suspense? If the answer is yes, you must check out B.J. Daniels' Cardwell Cousins Series.

This is more than just a cowboy story.. there is murder, greed, corruption, family dynamics, yucky people and lots of laughter and love.

Allie Taylor is a single mother, widowed less than a year before. But she had been in an awful marriage and had been planning on escaping. Fortunately for her she does not have

I admit to liking B.J. Daniels stories. I like the Cardwells. The suspense was good, I was not sure who the guilty party was till it was revealed. I like the characters. Ford and Nat are cute together. They steal the show. There was a love scene that I skipped over.

Jackson Cardwell is a divorced father of Ford. He has come for his brother's wedding and to see where their new restraint will be. He is not looking for romance.

Allie Taylor is the wedding planner. Her husband disappeared 8 mon

Another great addition to the Cardwell series. This book had everything love, deception, murder, and a "wedding". There was so many twists and turns I couldn't put the book down. Since this was an ARC I don't want to give to much away.

Allie lost her husband while he was hunting but his body was never found. She is having experiences that is making her feel as if she is losing her mind. Jackson is in town to attend his brothers wedding and see the place they want open their new restaurant at. He

I just want to start by saying I LOVE a book that keeps me guessing, and has lots of fun twists and turns. B.J. Daniels doesn't disappoint with the latest installment of the Cardwell Cousins series! The book starts a little bit slow, but trust me and stick with it because the suspense builds. Characters here (as in all of Ms. Daniels' books) are well drawn and you feel as though you know them and they live just down the road by the time you put the book down.

In this latest Cardwell book, a love

Okay, this book, which is a part of the Cardwell Cousins series, happens to fall right after another book in the Cardwell Ranch series, which I read back in December. Follow that? Anyway, this was another story of one of the marriage phobic Cardwell boys returning from Texas to Montana for a family wedding and jumping into a mystery surrounding the disappearance of a lovely lady’s husband.

The author hits all the right notes, a mysterious disappearance, romance, betrayal and who is trying to push

I love the Cardwell family books. Can't wait for the next book.
Tara Taborsky
I don't want to write a synopsis of the book since several other reviewers did so...

What I will say about this book...which I could not put down once I that it warmed my heart and creeped me out at the same time. I love the wedding aspect of the book...especially since I'm in a relationship with a man I would love to marry. But the gaslighting from the in-laws and supposed sister really bothered me - not in the sense that it was a bad addition to the book, but in the sense that thes

****** I have received this ARC for my honest review**********

This is the 2nd book in the Cardwell Cousins series. The series continues with Jackson Cardwell and Allie Knight Taylor.

Jackson Cardwell is divorced and coming from Texas with his son Ford to attend his brothers Tag wedding.

Allie has a daughter Natalie and recently lost her husband Nick Taylor. His went into the mountain for a weekend away. They found evidence that he was attacked and died by a Grizzle Bear. They haven’t been able to

WEDDING AT CARDWELL RANCH by B.J. Daniels is the second book in her Cardwell Cousins series, which is an off-shoot series from her Cardwell Ranch series. This book can be read as a standalone even though there are interconnected characters and a continuing background story. All of B.J.'s books are fresh and fascinating Western mysteries set in gorgeous scenery, suffused with intrigue, spiced with sexy cowboys and imbued with slightly sensual romance.

Once again BJ Daniels has written an intriguing book that keeps your interest from beginning to end. Just when I thought I had figured out the plot, thinking Nick is alive & wanting to drive Allie crazy, she changes the plot on me...several times, with me not knowing who the perpetrator is until the very end of the book...with as usual, a surprise ending.
This book is full of frustration on Allie's part, to the excitement of the wedding & of course, Jackson Cardwell as Allie's "knight in
Fragile after an emotionally abusive marriage and the presumed death of her husband, Allie thinks she’s losing her mind when strange things happen in her home and during her work. However, brother of the groom, Jackson, suspects someone’s gaslighting the wedding planner.

I thought Allie’s panic and distress were well-depicted, but the romance felt a little rushed, it didn’t seem like there was much time for truly getting to know one another beyond the crisis of the moment. I could see the attract

Big Sky, Montana

Jackson Cardwell isn’t looking for love and most definitely isn’t looking to be anyone’s hero. Being a single father visiting from Texas is enough for him until he meets a beautiful lady in distress. Someone is determined to convince Allie Taylor that she is losing her mind. Jackson is just as determined to unmask the perp behind what is happening. He is also going to guard the widowed wedding planner and her daughter no matter what.

Wedding at Cardwell Ranch by BJ Daniels is another best seller!

She writes a strong independent, successful character in Allie. She just lost her husband and someone is trying to make her think she's crazy.

Jackson comes to Cardwell ranch for his brothers wedding and meets Allie, he clearly sees someone is trying to make her think she is crazy and sticks around to help her out.

As the story progresses, things get dangerous. I would highly recommend this book! Another great book by BJ Daniels! A

What a trip! My heart was literally in my throat for parts of this novel. I couldn’t even fathom living through this, but Daniels drew me right into the mix. I couldn’t put it down. Even after I finished the novel, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. She engaged me mentally & emotionally. This story was so vividly real that I could picture each and every moment of it. Daniels’ story is completely unique, yet still contains the elements that we’ve come to love from her work. Suspense, intrigue ...more

Thanks to the Goodreads First Reads giveaway program for a copy of “Wedding at Cardwell Ranch” by B.J. Daniels.

Although “Wedding” is the second in a Harlequin Intrigue series, I was able to dive into the story and sort out the many Cardwell brothers, despite not having read the first book, “Rescue at Cardwell Ranch.”

In “Wedding,” Jackson Cardwell, a single father from Texas, reluctantly travels to Montana for the wedding of his brother, Tag. His five-year-old son, Ford, becomes smitten with Nat

In this book, Wedding At Cardwell Ranch, B J Daniels tells how Jackson Cardwell helps rescue Allie Taylor, the wedding planner for his brother, from someone who is bent on making her think she is losing her mind. That must be a scary thing to go through! Especially when Allie has no idea WHO is behind all the things that are happening to her. Being a single father himself, Jackson knows it must be awful to have someone threaten harm to your child. Through all the twists and turns Jackson is righ ...more

“Jackson couldn't bear to see Allie like this. He pulled her to him and, dropping his mouth to hers, kissed her. She leaned into him, letting him draw her even closer as the kiss deepened. Fireworks lit the night, booming in a blaze of glittering light before going dark again. Desire ignited his blood. He wanted Allie like he'd never wanted anyone or anything before.” 0 likes
