Review: The Last Renegade

the last renegade, jo goodman, book reviews


As the owner of the Pennyroyal Saloon and Hotel, Lorraine Berry is privy to almost everything that goes on in Bitter Springs, Wyoming—including the bloodshed plaguing its citizens. With all of the good men dying at the hands of a local rancher and his three sons, Raine hires a shootist to be the town’s protector. But her handsome new employee is more than a hired hand; he’s a man who keeps his guns close and his secrets closer.

After a chance encounter on a train, Kellen Coltrane travels to the Pennyroyal to carry out a dying man’s last wish. But once he meets the hotel’s fiery-haired proprietor, Coltrane finds himself assuming the role of the shootist’s accomplice and agrees to protect Bitter Springs. And as he learns more about Raine’s own tragedy, Coltrane can’t deny his growing desire for the courageous widow, or the urge to protect her from the threat that draws near…

Review: This is one of the best books I've read lately. More than a great romance novel, it is a great story in itself. The characters are all wonderfully portrayed, even the bad guys, and although the general direction of the plot is easy to guess, the author keeps throwing in enough twists and turns to keep you hooked. Most dialogs have double meanings, nothing and no one is exactly as it seems. The old wild, wild west feeling is very present and the story and the characters live with you well after you finish the book. 


This was my fist romance by Jo Goodman and I will definitely look into more of her work. In the meantime, I totally recommend The Last Renegade to anyone who wants to spend a couple of hours with a wonderful book!

Happy readings,

  1. Sounds like a steamy romance for the beach. Wild West novels, haven't read one in awhile. Appreciate you sharing this at my party this week.

    1. Thank you Michelle! If you read it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  2. Cute, I haven't heard of that author but looks like a bodice ripper!

    Thanks for linking up at #bloggerspotlight, I pinned this to our group board. Don't forget to link up again on Thursday night.

  3. I love it when there are lots of twists and turns in a book! Thanks so much for sharing this at Booknificent Thursday last week. I'm sorry I'm late getting around!
