In Pretty Reckless you get to meet Laney Briggs, an ex- kindergarten teacher turned deputy sheriff in her small Texas town. Right at the beginning of the book Laney finds herself in the middle of a big mystery with dead cattle and a murdered man. Then enters Laney’s ex-husband, Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson, who is assigned this same case. Laney ran Gunner out of town when she caught him cheating on her… by shooting his rear full of rock salt! So you can imagine the tension (and the sparks) that fly between these two as the story goes on.
Laney is smart ass, stubborn lady that is caught between feelings she has for two men. I laughed and cheered for her as she stood on her own two feet and used her brain to solve this crime. Even when I thought I knew who was behind the crimes the book kept me in suspense and surprise until the end. I am looking forward to reading more!

About the Book:
Welcome to Pistol Rock, Texas where secrets last about as long as the sporadic west Texas rain showers.
Laney Briggs has long been considered reckless, but she’s turned herself around—she’s respectably engaged and she’s become a Pistol Rock deputy sheriff. Everything’s fine until a dead body turns up and her ex, Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson, decides to stick his boots into the town’s first murder case.
Laney will be damned if she lets Gunner trample all over her turf and her chance at a quiet, contented life. His seemingly endless ability to undermine her resolve and her libido is only outdone by her constant urge to butt heads with him. But when the bodies start to pile up, Laney has to ask the lethal bad boy for a hand—and a truce in exchange for his help.
Having an ex-boyfriend as an ally might not be the best idea, but Laney has always been pretty reckless…
Tagline: She’s dead-set on giving one bullheaded cowboy the boot.

About the Author:
Jodi Linton grew up across the street from a cow pasture, where she was more likely to be seen selling Kool-Aid in a Dixie cup at ten cents a pop, or inviting neighbors over to watch one of her plays staged on her father’s Bass boat.
In 2001, she traded in the rednecks, cowboys, and mesquite trees of her hometown to chase destiny out west. After a few years of mucking it around with the roughnecks, dust storms, and droughts, she decided to dust off her boots and head home. With a History degree in one hand and a marriage license in the other, she followed her husband in 2006 to central Texas the heartland, fabulous Austin.
After settling into the Texas Hill Country with her husband and two kids, she joined the Austin Romance Writers of America, and signed with The Belcastro Agency. Today she can be found cozied up to the computer escaping into a quirky world of tall tales, sexy, tight jean wearing cowboys, and a protagonist with a sharp-tongue quick enough to hang any man out to dry.
