It's almost unconscionable what a person would do to
protect their family. To what lengths. Sometimes it is ill
conceived with the imagined result at times totally out of
character for the person that puts the idea in motion. In
CARDWELL CHRISTMAS CRIME SCENE B.J. Daniels goes for the
gut in this study of just that. Family issues are
difficult and as Daniels shows in this amazing page turner
DJ's father Walter had basically spent his life guarding
his daughter. DJ's mother's family had never accepted them
as part of their influential and wealthy group. It was
better having DJ believe her mother died in childbirth and
it was just the two of them rather than put her in the
sights of the Pisani clan.
DJ was clever and resourceful so when someone left her an
unexpected item she knew something was very wrong. Why
would someone contact her about a family she never heard
of -- never knew. It must be a mistake. So she did the only
thing she could -- visit her father in prison for answers.
His answers were unacceptable and DJ was certain that once
again her father was hiding behind the lies he had
carefully crafted all these years.
His final words were that she would be safe with his
family in Montana -- more family she didn't know she had.
Big Sky Montana is a wondrous place filled with honest
straight shooters. DJ's family is part of the Cardwell
Ranch whose members are impressive. The Cardwell's didn't
know what to expect when DJ arrived but true to type they
were welcoming. To the Cardwell's nothing is more
important than family.
Beau Tanner was surprised when out of the blue Walter
Justice sends him a letter. Beau owed Walter a favor and
this was a doozy. Protect Walter's daughter DJ. No
particulars -- just that she was not to know. Pretty tall
order but Beau's work as a PI gave him the necessary
tools. Now all he had to do was stay in the background and
watch for potential danger. What he didn't count on was in
Big Sky Montana people notice. Someone was in town who was
intent on causing problems. In order to keep an eye on DJ
Beau had no choice but to become a friend. He had a past
relationship with the Cardwell family and now living in
his father's house establishing a friendship with DJ
seemed the best way to keep her in his sights.
Great plan. Beau and DJ were both discovering that their
relationship had all the markings of becoming more than
just a friend. But this relationship had no future. Or did
The entire Cardwell Big Sky Montana series has been a true
joy to read and review. I am always on the lookout for
anything by B.J. Daniels. CARDWELL CHRISTMAS CRIME SCENE
is an interesting entry to the holiday season reading
list. Definitely some scary moments as the story line is
based on watching out for someone with dangerous
intentions. But since it is B.J. Daniels you can be sure
to experience a lovely family holiday experience.
A conman's daughter takes refuge with the family she
never knew she had in New York Times
bestseller B.J. Daniels's latest addition to the Cardwell
Dee Anna Justice had thought that her convict father was her
only living relative. Now Walter Justice, fearing for his
daughter's safety, urges her to seek out her cousins in
Montana. Calling in a decades-old debt, he also enlists
private investigator Beau Tanner to protect her.
Despite their fiery attraction, she resents the bodyguard
her dad foists on her. Trust doesn't come easy to DJ. But
the warm, embracing family she finds at Cardwell ranch just
might begin to soften her suspicious nature, and learning to
trust the sexy PI may be the key to saving her life.
