CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE! Mystery, suspense, cowboys and romance are what Cat Johnson’s JACK is all about.
After losing the girl he has wanted for years to his best friend, special operative Jack Gordon goes home for a little R&R. When he gets there, he finds the new farm hand is an intriguing woman that his instincts say is hiding something. The Gordon’s horse ranch is the perfect place for Nicki to hide from the mobsters chasing her. Sparks fly when Jack meets Nicki, but her secrets are catching up with her.
Cat Johnson’s JACK is a light and entertaining short contemporary set on a family horse ranch. The author catches readers’ interest quickly when she introduces Jack. Jack is a strong alpha character who is tired of pining away for the girl he can never have. It would be near impossible not to hope that Jack can find the right girl for him while he is home on vacation. So when the intriguing and secretive Nicki turns up working on the family’s horse ranch and the sparks start to fly, special operative Jack is just the man to turn to as trouble comes knocking.
What I liked best about this story was the light and easy way the story read. Johnson’s descriptive way of writing has readers feeling as though they are the proverbial fly on the wall watching the story unfold. The romantic scenes were slightly old fashioned and really sweet. And when the bad guys show up and end up as if they are straight out of a bad comedy, it was the perfect combination of brevity and humor. The ending was expected but still, for a short story, Cat Johnson’s JACK was entertaining and enjoyable.
