Showdown is the third book in Linda Bradley's Montana Bred Series. As the new co-CEO of the ranch, Chloe McIntyre is busy renovating the barn, taking in and re-homing horses, and putting the idea of an animal therapy center to her father. When her partner, Matt Cooper, proposes marriage, she uses her busy life with work and their girls to run away from the subject. After growing up with parents whose divorce made them bitter toward each other, she can only imagine a doomed marriage. Once she mentions a prenuptial agreement, she and Matt square off with their opposing views on commitment. Chloe realizes she's chasing away the only man she has ever loved, and she doesn't know if she'll be able to win him back.
By the time they finish devouring this book, readers will feel as if they know everyone at the 617 Ranch. They've savored Gladiola's food and had a cowboy heart-to-heart with John McIntyre. I jumped into the series with this book, but Linda Bradley caught me up on everything I needed to know by weaving details into the story. Even though John owned the ranch, it was clear Chloe, Glad, and Maggie kept it running and alive. Chloe stayed true to her character, making decisions she thought were best for her family and the ranch. Bradley's book made me want to visit a horse ranch in Montana and maybe pick up a cowboy while I'm there. Showdown is a great selection for readers who enjoy cowboy-styled romances and realistic plots.
