Hello lovelies! Please bear with me while I make the transition back from WordPress to Blogger. I need to go through and insert images and do some more tweaks.

Review: Atonement (Beartooth, Montana #4) - B.J. Daniels

Whenever I am not sure what I want to read next, I usually start a B.J. Daniels novel. She is one of my go-to authors. Atonement has definitely been added to my pile of good reads. Daniels knows how to keep a reader captivated with her intriguing mysteries. I know that's why I was hanging on by the seat of my pants.

We start off with Ethan's POV in a nail-biting scene, and then we fade on into a mellow ranch where Dillon, Ethan's twin is working a horse in a corral. Dillon's mood is steadily growing somber while working this horse, lost in his own thoughts. The next day will mark the one year anniversary of his brother's death. (Or so he thinks.) When a very pretty and very pregnant visitor shows up on his ranch and starts yelling at Dillon about giving her back her money and telling him she wants him to have nothing to do with their child, he starts to wonder what in the hell is going on and wondering why she thinks the baby is Ethan's since he's been gone a year. After a lot of convincing, he finally convinces Tessa that he is not,in fact, Ethan but his twin Dillon. And the farther into investigating Ethan's trail, the more danger they find themselves in.

I loved how Daniels wove Dillon, Ethan, and Tessa's story with another side story involving Nettie and Frank. (Which seemed like I needed to go back and read the previous one to know the extent of all that happened there, but it didn't take away from their story at all.) When I thought it was one person, she threw a wrench in and had my eyes going wide with who was the culprit. I love a good mystery thrown in with a great love story. There wasn't any scorching hot love scenes but I felt the story didn't need it either. It would have taken away from the story itself and Daniels executed this perfectly. Now I just need to go back and read the previous books in this series and I will be all set! :)


  1. LOL yup. She's one of my go-tos as well! I enjoyed this one quite a bit but same as you want to go back and see how some of the side stories came about.

  2. I've liked her others but i enjoyed this one the most. This is the first one in this series I've read and definitely has me wanting to get the others.
