Deadly Christmas Pretense was a high-impact, full of danger, wild ride of a novel! I kept wondering how the bad guy was able to be so sneaky and contintually get away with terrorizing poor Maggie without getting caught.
This is book two in the Roughwater Ranch Cowboys series, but is definitely written so that it can be enjoyed as a stand alone novel, too. I enjoyed the attraction that formed between Maggie and Liam, as well as watching Liam learn to work through his fears and the difficutlies that he dealt with on a personal level. These things added a lot of good tension to the novel. Additionally, the romance and suspense kept me turning the pages to see how things turned out.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
