Christmas at Cardwell Ranch By B.J. Daniels
From the Author:
I get sentimental at Christmastime so when I was writing CHRISTMAS AT CARDWELL RANCH, I wanted to reunite a son with his father. Tag Cardwell had been estranged from his dad after his parents divorced and his mother moved him and his four brothers to Texas.
Now Tanner “Tag” Cardwell has come home for Christmas.
But from the moment he gets to Montana, Tag finds himself swept up in a mystery—one that involves the father he thought he knew.
When I was writing this book I wondered how much we really know about our parents. We think we know them, but often we are surprised—just as Tag is in this mystery set at Cardwell Ranch.
Tag meets a woman his first night in the canyon. Lily McCabe lives a quiet, dull life as a math professor at Montana State University, and she is quite happy to keep leading that life—after being dumped at the altar by an equally quiet, dull man.
But, like Tag, she gets swept up in a mystery that requires her skills as a mathematician. The woman knows a “code” when she sees one. The two are thrown together in this wintery, wild landscape as they try to escape killers and fight their growing attraction. Both are tested before they get to celebrate a Montana Christmas in the warmth of the ever-growing Cardwell Ranch family.
The first book in the Cardwell Ranch series was CRIME SCENE AT CARDWELL RANCH. Now Dana Cardwell Savage’s Texas cousins are wending their way back to Montana. CHRISTMAS AT CARDWELL RANCH is the first of five books about the Cardwell Texas cousins. Watch for four more in this series as each of the handsome Texas cowboys find their way back to the state where they were born—and find true love.
