No Way Out (Review)
This review is for the book "No Way Up" by Mary Connealy. I have read several of her books in the past and always enjoyed her stories and characters, so I was looking forward to this book. This is the first book in her Cimarron Legacy series, so she really set a foundation of who the characters are and set up future storylines in this book. In this book, Chance Boden, the owner of Cimarron Ranch, is trapped in a rock avalanche at the very beginning of the story. His outcome is not too grim, but he makes sure to bring his three children together to discuss his will in case anything happens to him at the hospital. His will states that they all have to come home and live on the ranch for a year. The siblings aren't too happy about this, as they all have lives of their own to attend to.
They do honor their father's wishes, but then one of the ranch workers, Heath, discovers that the avalanche may not have been an accident after all. Thus begins an adventure of the siblings and Heath working together to figure out the truth about the avalanche. Throughout this journey, Heath begins to fall in love with Sadie, one of the siblings. He knows a future may not happen because he is a lowly ranch hand, but as we all know, feelings weigh more than societal rules!
This book is full of adventure, romance, and mystery. You aren't sure who to trust throughout the book. Connealy does a great job of making the story interesting, the characters interesting, and like I said, setting up future storylines. We have to find out what's going to happen to the other two siblings in the future! I look forward to reading the rest of this series.
Thank you to Bethany House for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
