    3 Stars Thought I'd dig into some old paperbacks I have. lol This was an ok read but it felt like the romance was on the back burner:( Not sure I want to continue with the other brothers. 3 Stars Thought I'd dig into some old paperbacks I have. lol This was an ok read but it felt like the romance was on the back burner:( Not sure I want to continue with the other brothers.

    Ahm. Ahm.. This one's okay but there's just too many things going..This supposed to be Romance.. the suspense and solving-crime thing is okay but why? I only read Harlequin when I want a good Romance but B.J. Daniels is more focused on solving crimes than Love.. I can't blame her if it's her way of writing. But still....:( Ahm. Ahm..

There was some twist that just left me blown away. The action was in the last chapter, and it was intense. One part of the book I thought wasn’t cleared up before the book ended. I hate cliff hangers. The romance was sweet at the end, but was put on the back burner through most of the book.

    I really liked the double mystery, one of which I think is going to continue over the arc of the 6 books. I would have liked a little more to the romance part, it seemed they relied a little too much on the fact that they knew each other back in grade school, but I wasn't surprised as I find that often in the Intrigues. The mystery was satisfying, so that made me happy! :) i was guessing til the end. I really liked the double mystery, one of which I think is going to continue over the arc of the 6 books.

    Whitehorse Deputy Halley Robinson responds to a 911 call and unexpectantly finds herself face-to-face with her teenage crush, Colton Chisholm. This strong, sexy man was once the schoolboy who teased her with frogs. But now he's on a mission to solve a case--the murder of someone from his past. The girl he once teased is now a woman he must resist if they are to work together to solve this mystery. Fast-paced, action packed, I couldn't put it down.

    I liked this novel because it was a good mystery, cleverly planned. The action is fast-paced which makes putting the book down hard. I did, however, think that there should have been more character development because the quick romance between the two main characters was a little hard to believe.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. As others have stated in their review, it woukd have gotten a higher rating with a bit more romance. I figured out the mother was a lot more involved and nit as innocent as she appears, quite early in the story.

    I love B.J. Daniels! This was a great book! The first in the Chisholm Cattle Company series. Colton Chisholm finds out fourteen years later, his high school sweetheart really didn't leave him, she had actually been murdered. With the help of the new deputy in town, who also happens to be a girl he had a crush on in grade school, they set out to find out who the killer is. This book was full of suspense, many twists and turns and a complete surprise ending. This story had me hooked early on and i I love B.J. Daniels! This was a great book!

    Branded was a terrific book in itself but it's hard not to draw comparisons to Gun-Shy Bride (Whitehorse, Montana: Winchester Ranch #1), the Whitehorse series opener from BJD in 2010. The big two comparisons that stick out at you are: we have the heroine who is in law-enforcement and we have a family with a ton of buried secrets. Literally, buried secrets as in past girlfriends and wives who've met horrible, unexplained demises. As for the romance, that was new.

Literally, buried secrets as in past girlfriends and wives who've met horrible, unexplained demises. As for the romance, that was new. Colton's love for Jessica and dislike of Hailey reversed itself so subtlely you barely noticed it. Don't you just hate it when the guy is the last one to figure out his gal is/was a tramp? Btw, how had Hailey not thrown herself at Colton earlier is hard to imagine since Whitehorse is a small Montana town. I know the jurisdiction is enormous but, still, he's pretty smokin' hot on the cover. I guess if he's always out ropin' cattle he must be pretty busy and never makes it into town. lol I only gave Branded 4-stars versus 5 because I think I liked Emma, Colton's step-mom, a whole lot better than Hailey as a heroine. Her back story was as intriguing as the main plot and her love affair with Colton's dad, Hoyt, overshadowed Colton's and Hailey's. I'm looking forward to reading more about the Chisholms. This series should be fun.

    Well, Daniels is still writing about the town of Whitehorse. I think I missed the last 2 of the "Winchester Ranch" series. This is the first (there are 6 brothers so I assume 6 stories) of the Chisholm Cattle Company - also based in the town. Unless they were mentioned in the 2 Winchester books I missed this family was never mentioned in previous Whitehorse books. Again, killers abound in the town.

    This review is a repost. I liked that this book had enough suspense and intrigue as well as interesting characters to make you want to read the succeeding books in the series. A lot was happening in such a short novel. Would have liked to have a few more pages which would have given the book a clearer character build-up, imagery, and mystery. However, it turned out great, anyway, so I'm not really complaining. This is the first 5 Stars that I gave to a B. J. Daniels book. Hopefully, the other books This review is a repost.

    This was my first B.J. Daniels romantic suspense. I thought it was good. I'm not used to a romantic suspense without a least one good sex scene (Nora Roberts, Sandra Brown), but it didn't really seem to matter. I just didn't feel the hotness between the two main characters although I understood their attraction. I wish they had been a little more dramatic with each other. I has a good flow and the "bad guy" was a good surprise. Good writing for the genre. This was my first B.J. Daniels romantic suspense. I thought it was good.

    Could not finish. Just a really "icky" book, about the hero being a total fool for an habitual lying- slutty "B", whose body is found 14 years after she supposedly left town, at their secret meeting place, that he is led to return there, after a 14 year old letter from her to him is supposedly found in the PO. Pretty much all are detestable characters including both of her parents and his father! Could not finish.
