Crime Scene at Cardwell Ranch was a true bestseller, offering enjoyment to over two million readers. So it’s certainly been a chore for most to have to wait for this sequel. Much like the ever-popular Ewing’s based at South Fork in Dallas, people want to see what happens next at the Cardwell Ranch.
Two storylines come into play, featuring Jordan and Stacy. Beginning with Stacy, she arrives at the Cardwell Ranch with a six-month-old named Ella in her arms. Dana Cardwell, who is very pregnant, will not turn Stacy away regardless of the bad blood that still exists between them from six years ago. Dana loves little Ella and could really use some help from Stacy, seeing as that her own doctor has put her on bed rest until her baby arrives. Hudson, Dana’s husband who‘s also the local Sheriff, is not too thrilled about Stacy’s sudden appearance, but he knows that his wife needs to stay calm in her state and doesn’t want to bring about any stress.
Stacy doesn’t volunteer any information regarding her baby’s father or why she has suddenly turned up at the ranch after all this time, but one day she announces that she’s going to visit their father and simply leaves Ella behind at the ranch.
Jordan has come back to his hometown for a reunion. One of Jordan’s former friends committed suicide many years ago and now that Jordan’s back home he and one of his other friends are going to investigate the tragedy a little closer. Deputy Sheriff Liza Turner sees Jordan on Cardwell land. Dana (the pregnant girl) is Liza’s best friend, and she doesn’t want Dana to suffer because her sibling has returned after all these years, for purposes unknown. So while Jordan investigates and a murder occurs, Liza does her best to find a way to stop the madness.
From murder to lies – secrets to romance, these Cardwell’s have everything. The two storylines will keep readers busy trying to figure out all the twists and turns, but most of all, the book is simply just good, old American fun!
Until Next Time, Everybody,
