Cowboy with a Cause by Carla Cassidy

"I'd apologize for kissing you, but I'm not all that sorry."Dancer Melanie Brooks had escaped small-town Oklahoma, giving up the country for Broadway's bright lights. Yet after her mother's funeral called her back, her own health issues forced her to stay. Now her tenant, too-hot-for-his-own-good Adam Benson, is giving her a reason to dance again. But has a killer set his sights on her, too?

Adam knows a little something about fresh starts. As for his beautiful neighbor, he doesn't see a wheelchair—he sees a woman who understands. But as the heat grows between them, he can't avoid the feeling that more than her big-city past haunts her—and that danger has been lurking, waiting to strike….

3.5/5 stars

Being a woman in a wheelchair there were times I completely understood how Melanie felt regarding how she thought people saw her and even how she saw herself. Her views on the future with or without romance also struck a chord. But there were other times I really wanted to shake her and yell "snap out of it!". Adam tried his best to get her out of her funk and thankfully it did happen, it just happened to late for me. Add in the fact that the plot also involves two murders that have been dragged along through two previous books and still didn't get solved and a whole new crazy person in this one all add up to me wanting to stay far away from the small town of Grady Gulch, Oklahoma.
