This was such a good book. I really enjoyed everything about it.
First of all, At Wolf Ranch had an amazing plot. It started with a heartbreaking event and only got better from there. Nothing was as it seemed. The mystery/suspense part was an intricate puzzle that Ms. Ryan pulled together seamlessly. It hooked my interest right off the bat and managed to hold it until the entire thing played out to the end.
Then there was the great characterization. I would love to rope me a cowboy like Gabe. He was so strong and protective of Ella. Also, Ella was no pushover herself. No, Ella was more than the party girl that met the public eye. She was a ball-buster who could protect herself. Ella and Gabe were a perfect match even if they did come from different worlds. Together they made a strong couple that seemed very real.
This book has everything. Excellent writing and a story that flows effortlessly. Characters that were so vivid it seemed like they could leap right off the pages. A passionate love story that pulled at my emotions. Also, it's the first book in the Montana Men Series, so that means more hot cowboys for me to fall in love with like I fell for Gabe. Lastly, I would like to point out that this was my first book by Jennifer Ryan. It won't be my last. I am looking forward to the next book!
