Oct 2, 2012 B.J. Daniels Montana Mystique, 4 Justice at Cardwell Ranch Full-length novel
There is a combined anthology that includes this sequel with Crime Scene at Cardwell Ranch. I know GR claims it’s part of the Montana Mystique series, but I suspect their only link is that all four stories in MM take place in Montana. I’ve only read the first one, Crime Scene, which I enjoyed. Numbers 2 and 3 I haven’t read. Yet.
