Review: Too Far Down by Mary Connealy

My rating: 3 stars / I liked it


When an explosion kills men and damages the CR Mining Company, the Bodens realize their troubles are not behind them as they thought. Shadowy forces are still working against them.
Cole Boden finds himself caught between missing his time back East and all that New Mexico offers. Sure he fights with his siblings now and then, but he does care for them. He enjoys running the mine and, when he's honest, he admits that Melanie Blake captures his interest in a way no other woman ever has.
Melanie has been a friend to the Bodens forever. A cowgirl who is more comfortable with horses and lassoes than people, she never expected to find herself falling for someone. Particularly for refined Cole Boden, a Harvard graduate who may not stay long at the ranch. She's determined, however, to help the Bodens finally put an end to the danger that's threatened all of them. But will putting herself in harm's way be more dangerous than anyone expected?

My Review

Finally all the answers are revealed in this last book of the Cimarron Legacy series! What made this book different from the previous is that we not only get Cole and Mel's perspectives, we also get the villain's point of view a few times throughout the book. There seemed to be more talking and less adventure, despite the mine explosions. I was also looking forward to Cole and Mel developing a romance, but that thread was pretty lacking. Plot took center stage, and while it was good to see the Bodens reunited, I was disappointed that Cole and Mel didn't have more special moments together.
