Can she escape the real killer?
In this second installment in the Gold Country Cowboys series, farrier Ella Cahill is accused of murder—and only former marine Owen Thorn, her brother’s best friend, can help clear her name. Now with someone trying to kill Ella, Owen must protect her…despite his promise to her brother to stay away from her. But can they work together to find the true killer before she becomes the next to die?

In My Opinion…
Clear your schedule, take a deep breath, and hold onto your saddles before you return to Dana Mentink’s Gold Country. Just like a wild mustang, Treacherous Trails is one wild ride.
From the first page Mentink yanks readers into Ella and Owen’s story and doesn’t let go. With plenty of close calls and questions to be answered, this story goes by faster than a thoroughbred racehorse.
Oh, and let’s not forget about the unicorn shirt. This little reprieve had me laughing out loud.
With lots of combined memories, the history between Owen and Ella give this story depth and substance. Ella’s been hurt by Owen before (even though it takes him a while to catch on). As both of these characters fight to uncover the truth and save Ella from a murder conviction, they grow close once again.
But Owen knows what he wants, what he is made for, and Ella is not in that picture. Can he give up one dream to discover an even better one?
Don’t miss this action-packed, family-centric, twisty, blood pressure-increasing suspense.
