ULTIMATE COWBOY (4.5) by Rita Herron: Brody Bloodworth never stopped looking for the little brother who was snatched from his family nearly a decade ago. His grief and anger drove the woman he loved away, and he turned his attention toward running a ranch for troubled boys. Julie Whitehead blames herself for Brody’s brother’s disappearance and has made it her mission to find him. Now a special agent, Julie is back in Brody’s life, with evidence that shows that his brother may have been found — robbing a bank. Herron navigates the darkly twisted path of a psychopath with deft steps, adding another textured tale to the Bucking Bronc Lodge series — one that will keep readers flipping pages long into the night.
