No Way Up by Mary Connealy

This is my first book by this author that I know of. Over all it's fast paced, high action, funny, and sweet. No Way Up is a mystery, and a romance, and a western rolled up into one tale. 

Chance got caught in an avalanche. He can't run the farm alone, so he forces his three kids to come home and help. If they don't, they get disinherited. He fixed it so they have to stay there for a year, and work to run the place. That's not what they had planned, but losing an inheritance is worse. 

Pretty soon, Keith, who works there, finds out the avalanche was planned. Someone wanted to bump off Chance. Could it be the local Mexican peoples? Someone else with a grudge against Chance? 

No way up was rather cute over all, with a good bit of the feel of older western TV series. My copy came from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review and nothing more.


The Fight for the Cimarron Ranch Has Just Begun!
When Cimarron Ranch patriarch Chance Boden is caught in an avalanche, only the quick actions of hired hand Heath Kincaid save him. Before leaving by train to receive treatment to save his leg--and possibly his life--Chance demands that Heath read the patriarch's will and see its conditions enforced immediately. If Chance's three bickering adult children, Justin, Sadie, and Cole, don't live and work at the ranch for an entire year, ownership of the ranch will pass to a despised distant relative. 

Before long, however, Heath discovers that the avalanche may have been intentionally set--and that more danger lurks ominously. Finding his own future--and a desired future with Sadie--locked up in saving the Cimarron Ranch, Heath and the Boden siblings must work together against outside forces that threaten them all.
