Looking for a Cowboy

Donna Grant. St. Martin’s, $7.99 mass market (368p) ISBN 978-1-250-25006-3

Bestseller Grant delivers an edge-of-your-seat mystery in the steamy fifth Heart of Texas romance (after A Cowboy Like You). Private investigator Marlee Frampton has made it her mission to return kidnapped children to their families ever since her twin sister, Macey, was murdered and Macey’s baby was stolen by the killers 10 years ago. So when she chases a lead about a kidnapped infant to Clearview, Tex., she’s willing to go to any lengths to rescue the child—even manipulating hunky cowboy Cooper Owens to get to his friends Brice and Naomi, new adoptive parents and Marlee’s prime suspects. But Marlee is unprepared for the attraction she feels for Cooper, and when he earnestly offers to help her on the case, she can’t say no. A great cast of supporting characters, including plenty of familiar faces for returning readers, and the underlying element of danger heighten the intricate plot while Marlee’s vulnerability and Cooper’s desire to protect her add emotional depth to their sizzling chemistry. This one is a must-read for romantic suspense fans. (Oct.)
