A BOOK REVIEW Of COWBOY UNDER FIRE: COWBOYS OF HOLIDAY RANCH

DSCN0285The book COWBOYS UNDER FIRE: COWBOYS OF HOLIDAY RANCH is a ROMANTIC suspense book by  Carla Cassidy, New York Times best selling author that keeps you guessing who done it until the end of the book.

PUBLISHER’S SYNOPSIS: 

The book COWBOYS UNDER FIRE: COWBOYS OF HOLIDAY RANCH  is about Forensic pathologist Patience Forbes is a whiz with the dead-it’s flesh-and-blood men who wreck equilibrium. And cowboy Forest Stevens isn’t fooled by the guarded beauty’s icy facade. So when she’s attacked, he appoints himself her personal bodyguard. Her very personal bodyguard…

Patience is determined to investigate mysterious bones on the Holiday Ranch-not fall into bed with her sexy protector. But Forest is too masculine, too willing to lay down his life for hers…and to set on living a different life from the one from the one she’s built. With danger closing in, can Forest tame the shrew before it’s too late?

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE BOOK:

I liked was the fact it started out slow then by the middle of the book the plot got really interesting. Also, I liked the fact that Patience had an icy attitude toward everyone and just wanted to dedicate herself to her job and her job only. I also liked the fact that Forest Stevens doesn’t give up on Patience but keeps persisting.

WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE:

I didn’t like the fact that the new owner was introduced briefly and also mentioned the owner might sell the ranch and the workers might be out of a job. I didn’t like this because even though at the end of the book the murderer is revealed but it doesn’t mention if the new owner is going to sell or not. In my opinion, I thought the reader was left hanging and guessing what the new owner did. I also thought another book could have been written about the ranch being sold or not and on the workers if they kept their jobs or not. This could be another book. All in All, I thought the book kept you on the edge of your seat until the end of the book.

Choices: Good And Bad

 

Above are examples of choices. On the left, someone is choosing to go into the service and on the right a bear choosing to get something to eat in someone’s backyard. Both examples are risky choices.

We are given the ability to have choices to teach us responsibility. From a young age we are taught Right from wrong. When we get to our Pre-teen and teenage years, we choose for ourselves. Sometimes we make the right choice and sometimes we make the wrong choice.  Sometimes we regret the bad choices we make.

So before we make a choice be sure to think it through before you choose to go that way.  There is always a risk involved with whatever you choose but sometimes the risk pays off and sometimes it doesn’t.

If you don’t want to choose the wrong choice, here are some tips you can go by:

  1. Don’t hang out with the wrong crowd.
  2. Before making your choice think it through.
  3. Write the Pros down.
  4. Write the Cons down.
  5. Weigh the Pros and Cons.

You’ll find if you do some or all of these steps, it will help you make the best choice. However, remember animals don’t have this luxury.
