He’s fighting for a second chance with his first love…before it’s too late.

The last time PI Blaze McClintock was on her family’s ranch, she left in handcuffs. She vowed then to never go home again…until her estranged father is accused of murder. He’s not a good man—this entire Montana town knows that. But Blaze believes her father is innocent and she’ll do anything to prove it, even ask the one man who broke her heart for help—the only man in town who’s on her side.

No matter how hard he tried, Jake Horn could never forget Blaze. As teenagers, their passion ignited, leaving destruction in their wake. Now, years later, it’s obvious little has changed. But as they work together to unravel what really happened that night, a dangerous secret threatens to separate them for good. This time, though, Jake won’t let Blaze go without a fight—even if it means risking his own life.

B. J. Daniels’ Restless Heart is book One of Montana justice series. It starts with a murder, a town full of suspects, and dangerous twists and turns putting the complex plot on a relentless pace and the adrenaline is practically dripping off the pages, absorbing me into the whodunit mystery. OMG, if you love mystery thrillers, this is the book for you! B.J. Daniels delivers a story that will grab you by the seat of your pants and will not let go. The story begins with Blaze McClintock who returns home after her father is arrested for murder. With Jake Horn’s help, Blaze investigates, unaware that the more they dig up secrets, the more they put themselves in danger. RESTLESS HEARTS is highly flammable that will keep the readers turning the pages to the very end.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Harlequin via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it. This was a wonderful read. I just love Ms. Daniels' story-telling. Her stories just draw me into the action right from the beginning. I adore the characters and the web of intrigue that she weaves. This story just had me guessing all the way throughout. Ultimately I was incorrect as to who the murderer was. I never would have guessed that person. Blaze McClintock returns to the family homestead as her father has been accused of murdering his neighbor. Blaze hasn't gone home in years as she doesn't get along with her father since her mother vanished 16 years ago. Jake Horn following her as he hasn't gotten over her. He is in love with her and wants to protect her. The tale of these two former lovers have quite a task ahead of them especially since her father wants to plead guilty. I adored the multiply POVs that this story is written in. The story evolved so beautifully getting all of the different characters' thoughts. I highly recommend this story to anyone!

Restless Hearts (Montana Justice series) by B.J. Daniels Review by Vivian Zabel, author and editor Restless Hearts arrived in the mail one morning, and I began reading immediately. I couldn’t put the book down until I finished the last page. Once I began, Daniels wove her written magic around me, just as she brought the wide spaces and blue skies of Montana into Oklahoma with her words. The characters and plot became my reality as a murder brought Blaze McClintock back to her family ranch, not to prove her father innocent but to make sure he had a fair trial. However, her preconceived beliefs struggled with her sense of fairness. The mystery, suspense, and romance were typical B.J. Daniels, but the twists and turns kept the story from following any formula. I must confess Restless Hearts is my favorite of all the B. J. Daniels books so far.

RESTLESS HEARTS is a western mystery/procedural with aspects of a suspense/thriller. Although I had anticipated more of a romance slant, the romance aspects were very minor and no more than you would typically find in this type of book. Here, Blaze is returning to the town she left behind and the father she has not spoken to in years because he is under investigation/arrest for murder. Her father was found standing over the dead man with a gun in hand. The sheriff is more than happy to put him away for this crime, believing that this is not his first. Considering that the general feeling in town is one of extreme dislike, owing to the fact that he is raising buffalo in a town of cattle ranches, her father seems set to not receive a fair trial. As Blaze investigates with the help of Jake, an ex who still has feelings for her, she realizes her father may be taking the blame for someone else. As she gets to the bottom of things, she investigates many potential enemies and uncovers bigger secrets than she could have anticipated. The mystery/procedural aspects here were really strong- I was completely caught up in the whodunnit nature of the murder. There are a great many negative characters in the book, including corrupt policemen, domestic abuse/violence, and those that attack Blaze/set her father's barn on fire. There's a lot going on in this book, and not all of it is resolved by the end of the story (most of it is). RESTLESS HEARTS is highly readable with a plot that easily keeps the reader turning pages. I would recommend for people who like PI/procedural stories more than romance or suspense, although the suspense/thriller is strong as well. In terms of the romance, I had some iffy feelings about their relationship owing to the sentiment Jake has that he is going to marry her and she just doesn't know it yet. I hate this kind of bulldozing idea, but the romance was a very small piece of the story, so I am mainly rating according to the mystery. Overall, this is an engaging read that I would recommend to fans of other murder-mystery books. Please note that I received a review copy from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
