Stroke of Luck by BJ Daniels #Review #Contemporary #RomanticSuspense #MurderMystery

Series: Sterling’s Montana

Title: Stroke of Luck

Author: BJ Daniels

Publisher: HQN, Harlequin Romance

Pages: 384

Published: February 19th, 2019

Rating: 4/5

I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.

This is a romantic suspense with a blizzard isolating the guests and staff at the Sterling Ranch with a killer amongst them . . . . and a temporary chef who may be vengeful after being scorned by the ranch owner when she was twelve and he was fifteen!

Will Sterling endeavours to ensure his first set of guests have a stay they’ll never forget. However, he hadn’t anticipated his cook being replaced by Poppy Carmichael, the girl whose heart he’d broken when only a teenager, or that the guests all seem to have problems relating to each other, secrets, antagonisms and more despite all being present on the orders of their mutual boss. When a blizzard traps them all together and someone is murdered, there’s no escape, no help and danger all around. Add into all of that the attraction building between Will and Poppy and you’ve got a great read. Can they survive? Can they discover the motivation for the murder and identify the perpetrator before anyone else is killed? Will Poppy forgive Will and give them both a second chance at romance?

The plot has family drama, red herrings, deception, danger and steamy romance in an action packed thriller, with plenty of twists and turns as well as surprises to keep you guessing. I’m definitely looking forward to reading more in this series in future!

Synopsis:

He’s hoping to bury the past. She’s ready to settle the score.

The Sterling Ranch’s season opening isn’t going so smoothly. With the ranch’s lodge full of guests and a Montana blizzard threatening, Will Sterling needs help—and he needs it fast. So when his childhood friend Poppy Carmichael agrees to lend a hand, he’s grateful for a second chance…and more enticed by the woman she’s become than he cares to admit.

For Poppy, it was supposed to be a retreat full of horse rides and hoedowns—with a side of showing Will what he’s been missing all these years. But as the snow deepens outside, the guests’ suspicion and mistrust turn sinister inside, catching Will and Poppy in the crosshairs.

Weathering the storm in each other’s arms is all too easy for Will and Poppy, but will a confrontation with a killer mean their reunion is short-lived?

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author B.J. Daniels starts her Sterling’s Ranch series off with a bang in this suspenseful story of romance and revenge.
