The Rancher's Son (Montana #2) written by R.J. Scott narrated by Sean Crisden 5*
BLURB: A man without memories, and the cop who never gave up hope.
When he wakes up in hospital, the victim of a brutal beating, John Doe, has no memories of who he is or who hurt him. The cops can find nothing to identify him and he can't remember anything to help... except the name Ethan and one recurring place from his dreams. Three words, and they're not much, but it's a start. Crooked Tree Ranch.
Cop, Ethan Allens has never stopped searching for his brother and his brother's best friend who vanished. When a report lands on Ethan's desk that may give new leads he jumps at the chance to follow them up. The man he finds isn't his brother, but it's someone who could maybe help him discover what happened ten years ago.
What neither man can know is that facing the very real demons of the past could very well destroy any kind of future they may think they have together.
My Review: I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review. I haven't read or listened to the first book in this series but that didn't matter much as the story stands nicely on it's own. I am certainly going to get hold of book one (and however many books are after it in the series) as it was such a good story. I loved the mystery and the romance in equal measures and hope to find out more in the subsequent books. This one had twists and turns to suit any mystery fan and plenty of really great secondary characters to please the reader. The two main characters each have their own POV and Sean Crisden does a wonderful job of making them uniquely individual and, as usual, had a lovely narrative style to keep the listener interested.
