Tragedy had Coleman Garrison fleeing to the rodeo at the tender age of 17. Years of dedication and an I don't give a f*ck attitude turned him into a champion. Then tragedy changed the course of his life once more.

Buying a ranch on the outskirts of a small town, he planned to spend the rest of his days training horses, removed from society and the temptation of letting anyone close.

And then he saw her.

Tired of substitute teaching and unable to afford to move from her parents home, Abigail O'Neal jumped at the chance to start a new life away from the big city in the small town of Jasper Falls.

Shy and socially awkward, she wanted the chance to be a different version of herself. But breaking out of her shell turned out to be harder than she thought.

Until she met him.

Who knew Abby's resemblance to a dead woman would make her the target of someone's sinister deeds.

Can a hardened cowboy and a shy little mouse beat the odds, preventing tragedy from striking again?

***This is a full-length, standalone, steamy contemporary romance with a HEA. Due to sex and language, it is recommended for persons over 18.***

Freight Trained was cute but very forgettable. While reading Freight Trained, I kept feeling like the book was on the cusp of being really good but just couldn’t quite get over the final hump into greatness.

So. It was good. The characterization(s) was ok – not great but ok. Cole’s survivors guilt felt a little forced and the heroine was even more forgettable. I pegged the bad guy pretty early but the author did a good job of trying to throw the reader off.

All in all, I was entertained.
