Familiar Texas by Caroline Burnes

Harlequin Intrigue #831

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Stephanie Chisholm returns to her hometown of Pecos, Texas to attend her aunt and uncle’s funeral and settle their affairs. It’s not long before she learns that their deaths weren’t as accidental as she’d been led to believe and their will turns up, but quite a different version than the one she possesses. This one shows that her aunt and uncle disowned her completely, but this couldn’t possibly be true. It made no sense.

Hank Dalton is quite taken with the appearance of Stephanie. When he realizes Stephanie’s life is in danger, he is determined to keep her safe. He has a bit of help, too. Stephanie hires the sleek black feline detective, Familiar, to uncover all the mysterious happenings at the ranch and to learn the true story of her aunt and uncle’s deaths.

As always, I love this series and it’s always fun to have the handsome black cat, Familiar, on the scene. He makes me smile. The characters were very well developed and readers had an excellent feel for the setting of this book. I enjoyed it very much.
