Scorned Justice by Margaret Daley (Review)
About the book:
Texas Ranger Brody Calhoun is with his parents in west Texas when an unexpected attack injures the brother of Rebecca Morgan, Brody’s high school sweetheart. The local sheriff, a good friend, asks for Brody’s help. At first, it seems an open-and-shut case.
As Brody digs deeper, he realizes the attack may be related to an organized crime trial Rebecca will be overseeing. With Rebecca’s help, he compiles evidence involving cattle rustling, bribery and dirty payoffs that shatter the entire community and put Rebecca directly in the line of fire.
Brody expects to protect her. What he never expects is to fall for Rebecca all over again, or for a murder to throw the case wide open. Is Brody’s faith strong enough to withstand not only deep-rooted corruption and cattle rustling but also love?
I thought this was an interesting Christian romantic suspense book. I enjoyed reading it even though the material was not always pleasant. It kept my attention from beginning to end. The characters and plot were unique. This is the third book in the series but can be read alone. There was a plot twist at the end that I still am thinking about. I can't believe it but I can. I look forward to the next book in the series. Recommended.
