THE BODYGUARD'S RETURN
In The Bodyguard's Return (3), part of Carla Cassidy's Wild West Bodyguards series, something rotten is happening in Cotter Creek, Okla. -- or at least reporter Savannah Clarion thinks so. Too many ranchers are dying in seemingly mysterious circumstances, but no one will listen except a skeptical Joshua West, just returned to Cotter Creek after 18 months in New York. As they work together, Savannah becomes a target. She thinks it's because of the investigation, but Joshua thinks it might be because a love affair gone bad has followed him home. While the resolution doesn't quite live up to the intriguing buildup, the developing relationship between Savannah and Joshua makes up for it.
