A Reader's Opinion: TRUE TO THE LAW by Jo Goodman


THE BOOK

A READER'S OPINION

The second addition to the Bitter Springs series by Jo Goodman is just as good as the first. I've grown quite fond of the residents in this small Wyoming town, and Cobb and Tru are two great additions. We meet some old friends and gain a few new ones, none of whom disappoint. Cobb Bridger is a man worth admiring and Richard Mackey is a man worth despising. Tru Morrow has her secrets, but she doesn't allow them to stand in the way of living the life she wants. Goodman has a talent for diving deep into the lives of her characters, and it's not long before you feel as though you've made new friends.

Smart and entertaining dialogue packed with wit and drama, pack a punch when combined with a great plot and well-researched story. If you love historical romantic westerns, then I highly recommend giving this author's books a try.

BOOK SYNOPSIS

He was on the hunt for a runaway beauty . . .

“Find her” is the only instruction that private detective Cobb Bridger receives from Richard Mackey. The scion of a wealthy Chicago family, Mackey is desperate to know the whereabouts of the woman who disappeared from his employ, taking with her something of great value. Intrigued as much by what Mackey won’t say about the missing item as he is by Mackey’s description of the missing woman, Cobb accepts the assignment. And the one true lie that could destroy them both. Bitter Springs, Wyoming, has a new schoolteacher who may or may not be exactly what she seems. Upon making the acquaintance of Miss Tru Morrow, Cobb begins to question the guilt of this golden-haired lady—and the protective feelings she stirs in him. His investigation hinges on understanding where the truth lies. Can he believe in Tru? Or is she just another treacherous woman out to swindle this hardened detective’s heart?
