STROKE OF LUCK Synopsis:

He’s hoping to bury the past. She’s ready to settle the score.

The Sterling Ranch’s season opening isn’t going so smoothly. With the ranch’s lodge full of guests and a Montana blizzard threatening, Will Sterling needs help—and he needs it fast. So when his childhood friend Poppy Carmichael agrees to lend a hand, he’s grateful for a second chance…and more enticed by the woman she’s become than he cares to admit.

For Poppy, it was supposed to be a retreat full of horse rides and hoedowns—with a side of showing Will what he’s been missing all these years. But as the snow deepens outside, the guests’ suspicion and mistrust turn sinister inside, catching Will and Poppy in the crosshairs.

Weathering the storm in each other’s arms is all too easy for Will and Poppy, but will a confrontation with a killer mean their reunion is short-lived?

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author B.J. Daniels starts her Sterling’s Ranch series off with a bang in this suspenseful story of romance and revenge.

Excerpt:

She had touched the antler lamps and admired the massive ranch kitchen with all its counter space. Even at twelve and a tomboy, she had loved to cook. Back in the lounge, the well-worn leather furniture had looked so comfortable that she hadn’t been able to help herself. She’d plopped down in one of the chairs and was running her hands along the warm smooth leather when Will Sterling had found her. She hadn’t thought anyone was home and she’d been itching to see inside, so having never lacked courage, she’d dared enter without permission.

“What do you think you’re doing?” he’d demanded.

Startled, she’d struggled to get out of the deep comfort of the chair. “I was just…” She had managed to get to her feet and turned. The cutest cowboy she’d ever seen stole any words she might have said. His longish brown hair under his Western hat was dusted with gold as if kissed by the sun. His brown eyes were the color of sweet molasses.

Dressed in a Western shirt, jeans, boots and a hat that looked a little too large for him, she’d fallen in love at that exact instant.

“I need to get moving,” she told Kara. “I prom­ised to get up there in a couple of hours and I have to pack. I also want to pick up some supplies.”

“Supplies? I would think they would have those.”

Poppy chuckled. “Buckshot Brewster is their usual camp cook. Apparently he broke his leg. To Buckshot, cuisine is a slab of beef and a side of beans.”

Kara laughed. “Wait a minute. That cowboy you were telling me about who you met when you were twelve—”

“Will Sterling, the man who just hired me.”

Her friend raised a brow in concern. “But I thought he broke your heart.”

Poppy nodded. “Oh, he did.”

“Wait, I know that look. What are you planning to do?”

She smiled, eyes narrowing. “If it’s true that the way to a man’s heart is his stomach… Well, then, I plan to give him a taste of his own medicine.”

“You wouldn’t.”

Oh, but she would.

ARC Review:

This was my first book by B.J. Daniels and having read quite a few cowboy romances recently I was looking forward to reading this one – but unfortunately this one did not hit the spot for me, I expected more of a romancee but what I got was more of a mystery / who-dun-it plot.

This just wasn’t for me unfortunately, I couldn’t connect with the characters or undertand what their beef was with each other really. Will and Poppy hadn’t seen each other for 20 yrs – 12yr old Poppy had fallen for 15yr old Will, got hurt and moved away. Will hire’s Poppy as a stand in cook at his lodge and Poppy plans on excating revenge by making him fall for her via her cooking? Throw in a strange company group on holiday where not everything is at is seems and then there is a murder – sorry just did nothing for me, which hardly ever happens.

Still you should read it for yourself if this is what you like, it just wasn’t what I was expecting at all.
