The Cimarron Legacy series has quickly become one of my favorite series. I have loved the action packed pages, the suspense, and the relationships in the Boden family. It’s not perfect, like any family, but they have learned to stick together and to make sacrifices for each other. They have also learned to work together to accomplish one goal. In the case with this book, they are having to come together to figure out who wants them off this ranch.
While you could read this book without having read book 1, in my honest opinion, you need to read book 1 first. You won’t be sorry that you did and it will put this book into a better frame. The book picks up right where the last one ended. There really isn’t a recap of the story, although you find hints of it sprinkled throughout the book. I liked how the action picked up right away. I felt like I had jumped into the middle of a movie set and had to catch up a little since it had been a little while since I had read the first book. This is a series that I want to reread again once all of the books are out so I can tie them all together in my head!
When I say that there is a lot of action in this book, there is a lot! There are some deaths, too. I was surprised by the traitors and by the ending. I had some suspicians, but I didn’t want to truly believe that was who behind all of it!
Angie was a character who was easy to like. I felt like she grew up within the story and it was neat to watch her progress. I did laugh towards the end when she reaches the height of her newfound bravery! Justin was just a sweet cowboy who really never thought he’d find a girl. He was a little hard-headed, but with certain events happening, he came to see what everyone else saw in him. The story focuses on Justin and Angie, but you definitely get a lot of action from the other members of the Boden family, too. It’s a book that you won’t want to put down!
I am anxiously awaiting book 3 to come out! Everything hasn’t been resolved yet and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.
