I enjoy clean, romantic suspense novels, and found Kathi Oram Peterson's latest novel, Wanted, to be a great fit in that genre with national appeal.
Opening Wanted with an escaped convict on the run, and then having the other main character deep in a tense rodeo setting was a great way to draw a reader in, even for non-rodeo fans. I was also drawn in by the familiar Idaho setting.
I found the point of view switching back and forth between Jo and Faulkner to be an excellent way to get to know the characters, and it was an enjoyable way to discover the missing pieces to the crime.
I thought I knew who the bad guy was very early in the story, but Peterson kept throwing in twists and turns that kept me from being completely sure. My initial guess was right, but there was much more involved than I initially thought.
This is a fast and entertaining read that keeps you cheering for the underdog.

I loved this book. The plot is intense...the characters real and likeable. Faulkner has just escaped from prison after 7 years, and forces Jo Powers (a rodeo vet) to take him back to her place to help him recover from a gunshot wound. Jo fights powerful memories and feelings as she helps the man who smashed her heart and faith so many years ago when he was imprisoned for murder. She will do anything to keep her son, Rhett, safe from him. The plot weaves around lots of tension in the form of Jo’s fiancé, Lance, her brother, Dennie, and Lance’s father, Edward. Faulkner must fight like crazy to get Jo to believe he’s innocent before she becomes entangled in a relationship that will bind her forever into a world that might be more dangerous than the one she left behind. Great suspense.

I LOVE reading books by this author!
She is so good at dropping hints...
The only problems is she drops hints leading you to believe that this one character did it....
BUT then...she drops hints leading you to believe it was another character who did it....
You HAVE to keep turning the pages...because you now don't know who did it and you are dying to find out!
Also along the way she drops little touches of romance which just makes the story more intriguing!
