Ransom Canyon by Jodi Thomas
RANSOM CANYON is a story that is a good blend of feel-good, romance, suspense and hope all rolled up into a tale that will make you smile.
Author Jodi Thomas creates characters you feel like you already know or wish you did. They’re realistic with faults and traits readers can relate to. The characters are well-developed and likable.
Thomas’ depiction of a small western community draws readers in as they hunger for the close-knit chemistry. Her rich details places the reader alongside the characters as they interact.
Readers are introduced to rancher Staten Kirkland (last descendant of Ransom Canyon’s founding father), Quinn O’Grady (reclusive and best friend of Staten’s late wife), Lucas Reyes (a high school student wanting more out of life), Yancey Grey (an ex-con torn between scoring big or being normal), as well as numerous other characters. Thomas weaves an intriguing story as she brings all the characters together for a heart-pounding conclusion.
As the story unfolds amid a breath-taking backdrop, Thomas draws readers further into the emotions and struggles of her characters. RANSOM CANYON is the first installment in a new series that promises to take readers on a roller coaster ride with her unexpected twists and turns.

FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.
You may recall author Jodi Thomas stopped by Thoughts in Progress on Monday (Aug. 31) to talk about this fascinating book. If you didn’t get a chance to see her post, please be sure to drop back by now.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Are you pro or con when it comes to reading westerns? Or does the plot matter more to you than it being labeled under a western romance heading?
