Review: Dana Cardwell Savage has ranching in her blood, unlike her siblings, Stacy, Jordan, and Clay. After a bitter fight and the discovery of a new will, Dana is the owner of the Justice-Cardwell family ranch and her siblings receive dividend checks which they happily cash. This is about the extent of their interaction with each other...until now. Dana's pregnant with twins and has been ordered to bed rest and to relax. Of course, this happens at the same time her sister and one of her brothers show up in town. There's a new baby, a new murder, and the specter of past dirty deeds coming to light...which may change all of their lives in an instant.

B.J. Daniels has written a wonderful western mystery novel in which a sweet romance blooms as a killer sets out to eliminate the past. I enjoyed the characters and the growth they exhibited as the novel progressed. "Justice at Cardwell Ranch" brings to light the lengths people will go to maintain a devastating secret. It showcases the good bonds between family and friends as well. A quick read, yet very entertaining, "Justice at Cardwell Ranch" is a wonderful book with which to sit back, relax, and be swept away in the story.
