In Part 2 we are continuing on with Randi working for Brady but now their feeling for each other are starting to come out so that it is getting harder for them to have a working relationship - or at least for Brady to work with Randi (Rita). The suspense is building with the bad guys still trying to find Randi. I am looking forward to seeing how this works out.

I like the book so far and really like Susan Mallery's writing in general. I just really don't like the 3 parts to this book. I would muc

Great story but should be in one book!

It's a great story with a mystery twist. I just don't like th s t I have to buy two extra books to finish one story. I don't mind buying sequels because I enjoy the characters but at least the main story is finished. I felt like I had no choice but to buy the remaining parts to the story. I won't be reading any more of this 36 barbecuing whatever they're called. But I will read other Susan Mallory stand alone books. Would prob give a five star but don't know

This book was so great! My favorite quote from the book is, "You should train Princess to collect single ladies instead of cats. Think of how convenient that would be. You could have your pick of the litter, so to speak."
Susan Mallery generally writes light and fluffy books, which I enjoy. This book has some depth to it and everything isn't so smooth or light and fluffy. There is hard work done in this book on the ranch and a woman to do it. I love that this book is split into three parts, but i

wow

First off this book deserved a five star.

I found it intensified as the story went on. Rita aka Randi has strong feelings for her boss Brady. Her past is starting to cause her problems as she learns about Brady's past love life.

Brady asked Rita to travel with him to New Mexico for a livestock event and she excepted the invitation. Will trouble be waiting right around the corner. Read book 2 and find out what happens next in the 36 hour series.

Happy reading!

Not up to her usual standard...

I always enjoy Mallery's books but this format detracts so much from the actual story. Read first and second but will not finish it....I will stick to her regular novel hence forward....

I like this book but don't like having to buy it in parts. A story about being honest from the beginning.
