Russell Corbett was all cowboy and wasn't about to let a lady lasso him! But Dulcie Hughes had him tied up in knots from the moment she nearly collided with his combine. She rode into town with her fancy rental car and city clothes to claim her secret inheritance. And neither tall tale nor handsome rancher would deter her from exposing a years-old cover-up at the Beaumont

After Dulcie's parents die, she finds that she has inherited property from a woman named Laura Beaumont, a woman she knows nothing about. Upon arriving in Whitehorse, Montana to claim her inheritance, she also learns she inherited a rundown house on the property, a house in which she learns Laura Beaumont was murdered 24 years ago and the murder remains unsolved. Dulcie decides to find out what connection she has to this woman, and also to find the killer. She gets help from sexy cowboy Russell ...more
I don't get what the title has to do with anything, but this was a remarkably good read. Though it started rather slow, as soon as the heroine was where she was supposed to be, the pace sped up and the suspense didn't let until the last chapter.

The twists and turns were endless, the secrets aplenty, the suspects just kept piling up...And that's what makes a good suspense read in my book, The edge-of-the-seat tension, the constant wondering just who might have done what, who was covering for whom
3.5 stars
The Girl: Dulcie Hughes, Chicago photographer. She comes to a pissant town in Montana to collect on a mysterious inheritance and discovers she's a part of a 24-year old murder mystery. She's plucky, but not entirely dumb.

The Guy: Russell Corbett belongs to one of those vast cowboy clans only found in Harlequins. The Corbetts own a ranch something for money, I'm sure. I've just forgotten what it is because I've got "Harlequin Cowboy Clan Brain Scramble" (see My Gripes).

The Setup
Good creepy mystery but not enough actual romance for my tastes.

There are definitely Harlequins that strike my fancy. This….wasn’t really one of them.

Here’s the main problem with the book. The title and the cover are incredibly misleading for what you’re actually going to get, and that’s a pet peeve of mine. As a friend of mine (who also read it) said to me, “There’s no six shooter in the book.” It sure sounds like it’s a big plot point doesn’t it? But….there’s no six shooter. There are guns, yes. But not six shooters. The cover and title make it sound like

I read this book because I forgot to take with me one day the book I was reading at the time. For some reason this one was in my car, so it got chosen by default. It’s been a while since I’ve read a Harlequin or an Intrigue. I usually enjoy them, for the most part, when I indulge. I’d been wanting a good cowboy story for a while, and the title and cover piqued my interest, though I have to say the title really doesn’t describe anything that goes on in the book.

While I like the hero, Russell Corb

Holy suspenseful Harlequin! I don't normally review Harlequin novels, but I must be hitting a lucky streak with them because here's another really good one. Our heroine, Dulcie, mysteriously inherits some property after her parents die so she heads out to Wyoming to figure out who left her the land and why. While there she runs into Russell Corbett, a local, wealthy rancher who feels protective of Dulcie after her arrival. Dulcie soon learns someone murdered the woman who owned and left her the ...more

While I didn't dislike this book, I really felt like it was missing something... I'm not sure I know my exact problem with the story, but I did feel as if it had originally been written as a mystery with the romance amped up after the story had been completed to make it fit into the romance genre. I'm not the type of person who's looking for lots of sex (although this story does include one scene that I thought was particularly well done); I read these books for the romance, and while the myster ...more

Dulcie is mourning the loss of her parents when she's informed that she's inherited land out west from a woman she's never heard of in addition to her parent's estate. When she travels to Montana to see the house and land, she brings renewed interest to an unsolved murder from the community and the killer in hiding. She also sparks interest in a local cowboy.

I was expecting a wid west adventure but it was a thrilling mystery that kept me rivited until the end when you finally found out the identy of the person who committed the murder years ago. I'll admit I didn't see that coming.

Just happened to find this older book at a yard sale. It was great. I know I won't be able to find the entire series but I did find a second book this week at a thrift store.
