Delores Fossen welcomes readers to Blue River Ranch, a new miniseries of romantic suspense. Always a Lawman is immediately engaging and sends readers through a whirlwind of danger and suspense.

Jodi Canton goes back to the place where all her troubles started. One tragic night 10 years ago she was attacked and Gabriel Beckett's parents were murdered. Jodi couldn't remember who attacked her, but all signs pointed to her father who has been in jail ever since. Jodi's back now to prove her father's innocence and to draw out the real killer. Returning to the crime scene as bait is the start of the end. From that moment, a series of events proves that someone is trying to kill her and suspects from the original investigation are once again under the light of suspicion. Gabriel, now Sheriff, wants to keep Jodi out of harm's way while catching the culprit.

For a quick read, this story is very involved. Someone is trying to cover their tracks by making those closest to Jodi seem suspicious. Fossen creates a tangled web that Jodi is eager to bash through despite her lingering anxiety. The attack deeply affected Jodi and it shows in her interactions with others and the course her life took. I appreciate how real the characters seem as they deal with the twists and turns of the investigation.

Romance in the middle of an intriguing mystery is the best kind of story. It doesn't hurt that our hero is a cowboy cop and our heroine is just as strong. If you loved B.J. Daniels' Dark Horse or Linda Lael Miller's Forever a Hero, you'll thoroughly enjoy Always a Lawman!
