This is a great book! If you remember the CALDER Series you will ove this one. It is a stand alone book but brings you back to the Calders. Except this Calder goes back to Tx.
This is one of the best books in the Calder story. Quint Echohawk's adventures in Texas were so good that I found it difficult to put down.
Good book hard to put down Gene C.
In this latest installment of the Calder saga, Janet Dailey displays the hallmarks that made the earlier Calder books such a critical and commercial success. The story takes us to Texas and the Cee Bar Ranch, home of the first Calder ancestor, Seth. Lawman Clint Echohawk, still mourning the loss of his father, travels from Montana to the ranch in Texas to manage the ranch and investigate the suspicious ongoings there. Sparks fly between Quint and Dallas, a waitress/student who eventually, along with her endearing grandfather Empty, move into the ranch as hired hands. Whether fighting the corrupt schemes of neighbouring rancher Max Rutledge, or feelings for his new love Dallas, Quint Echohawk reminds us why we love the Calder men...they're strength, pride, and tenderness. All in all, this is a very welcome addition to the Calder Saga. No Calders are killed of in this book (thank you Ms. Dailey...I was running out of kleenex) but the plot is nonetheless well-paced and keeps you hooked! If you are a fan of the earlier books in the Calder saga, this book will take you back home
Over the years the Calder family has always been one of my favorites. They are exciting compelling people who never disappoint...and neither does their author.
The Calder saga continues with Quint. Great book.
Janet Dailey continues her tale of the Calder family with the story of Quint Echohawk, son of Cat Calder.
One of a series of four books about generations of the Calder family. Each book can stand alone.Quint Calder is sent to the family ranch in Texas to investigate possible subterfuge. Old family scores with Max, a local rancher who controls the town, evolve. Quint finds able and unexpected assistance in a local named Dallas, but can he put her at risk?
With each step they came a little bit closer together. Quint was conscious of a thousand things about her. In spite of the rightness he felt holding Dallas in his arms, he was gripped by a growing frustration that came from knowing he didn't dare see her again, not for a while, not until this business with Rutledge was concluded. If Max Rutledge suspected that Quint cared even a little about Dallas, it wouldn't trouble his conscience to use her as a means to get to him.
A good read, but not the best of the Calder family saga.
Another Calder story, Janet Dailey always writes a great romance.
