One night changed them both forever. … As Zoe and Matt tussle over the best use of a billionaire’s bequest, a deeper question looms: Will one night stand in the way of their spending the rest of their days together?

Six years ago, rodeo cowboy Matt Halderman looked at himself and didn’t like what he saw. Especially not after he ran out on that spunky, wide-eyed student he’d just met.  He didn’t run far, falling into conversation with a stranger in the pre-dawn stillness of a Wyoming truck stop. That conversation – along with seed money that mysteriously arrived just when he needed it – turned the course of Matt’s life. 

Now he’s received a letter announcing that the stranger he’d met in that diner had been billionaire Harold Hopewell. Hopewell had traveled the world, encountering people and letting their stories touch him. In death, he is giving back, leaving an unusual will filled with life-altering bequests to the people he met along the way.

It turns out the recently departed billionaire isn’t done changing Matt’s life.  This time with an inheritance that will allow Matt to go home to do something he’s long dreamed of – caring for rodeo horses at the end of their lives.

Zoe Parisi hasn’t forgotten Matt or the night he walked out on her. Couldn’t even be called a one-night stand, since the man hadn’t stuck around for the whole night. She lost her head that night, but it’s been squarely back on her shoulders ever since. She’s a doctor now and is on track to take over an established practice in Knighton, Wyoming, the much-loved hometown of her grandparents.

She’d been sure when she decided to settle in Knighton that Matt would never return to the ranch where he grew up. But now, here he comes, waltzing back into town … looking just as good as ever and with a bunch of money.

Zoe wants nothing to do with Matt or his good looks … but his money’s a whole different matter. What does he need with this inheritance when he already has so much? She, on the other hand, knows exactly how to use those funds to make desperately needed improvements to medical care for all the people around Knighton.

Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged western beauty of Wyoming - and so do the women.

 A rodeo producer, dead in the bull pen. Accident or murder? 

Elizabeth "E.M." Danniher, until recently a top-flight national TV journalist, is regaining her footing after a dizzying demotion to tiny—and entirely foreign to her—Sherman, Wyoming. But her equilibrium faces a major challenge.

The apparently accidental death — under the hooves of bucking bulls — of a rodeo producer preparing for Sherman’s annual Fourth of July Rodeo catches the attention of Elizabeth and her KWMT-TV colleague Mike Paycik. Not only is it a major story about the region’s biggest event, but it’s being outrageously mishandled by the station’s egocentric anchor.

As Elizabeth and Mike dig, area rancher Thomas Burrell joins the investigation, providing background on suspects — and there are plenty because the victim had many enemies. But Tom has divided loyalties, so Elizabeth doubts his commitment to finding the truth no matter what. Not to mention that both Mike and Tom show an interest in her ... they might be okay with working together in a peculiar triangle, but the points of this geometry is starting to get under her skin.

… From the tip of the rodeo queen’s tiara, to “agricultural byproducts” ground into the arena dust, Elizabeth receives a murderous introduction to the world of rodeo.

What people are saying about LEFT HANGING:

 “I started laughing on the first page and continued laughing until the end.”

 “Loving the world of Cottonwood County, Wyoming!”

 “The dialogue was so well written that I could easily imagine the innuendo, tone of voice and facial expression of each character.”

 

What people are saying about the CAUGHT DEAD IN WYOMING series:

“McLinn's mysteries set in Wyoming are addictive. The writing is excellent, the twists and turns keep the brain engaged, and Elizabeth's wry commentary keeps a smile on my face.”

"She writes a little like Janet Evanovich only better.”

“E.M.’s internal monologues are sharp, snappy and often hilarious.”

“Hoping this series lasts forever!”

“McLinn has created in E.M. a female protagonist who is flawed but likable, never silly or cartoonish, and definitely not made of cardboard.”

“While the mystery itself is twisty-turny and thoroughly engaging, it's the smart and witty writing that I loved the best.” – Diane Chamberlain, bestselling author

~~~   Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged beauty of Wyoming – and so do the women.  ~~~ 

Without Ed and Donna’s love story none of the other Wyoming Wildflowers romances would have followed... 

 Ed Currick’s and Donna Roberts’ worlds couldn’t have been any more different – a cattle rancher/cowboy from Wyoming and an up-and-coming actress getting her big chance on a national tour of a Broadway musical. Then, for one instant, their paths cross in a chaotic hotel lobby in the heart of Denver. But an instant is enough for love at first sight.

 There’s a look. Then another. What could have been a momentary encounter of opposites attracting instead sparks desire, passion ... and so much more. But their days together are dwindling. What will they do when their dreams pull them one way and their hearts another? 

 Wyoming Wildflowers: The Beginning is the emotional, fun bonus prequel to the contemporary western romance collection Wyoming Wildflowers from award-winning and USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn.

 Read Wyoming Wildflowers: The Beginning before you start the rest of the series or after you finish the other Wyoming Wildflowers … but be sure to read it!

She’s a working-class bride. He’s a well-to-do groom. Their botched wedding is only the start of their storybook romance.

Annette Trevetti felt like a modern-day Cinderella as she walked down the aisle towards her first love and the heir to a small fortune. But her wedding day bliss screeched to a halt when an extremely pregnant woman crashed the ceremony claiming her prince charming was the father. Devastated, Annette shakes the dust of her small town off her boots and starts a seven-year climb up the corporate ladder to claim her own fortune. But when her brother gets injured on the job, she has no choice but to return to her hometown and risk exposing the feelings she still has for the man who broke her heart.

Single dad Steve Corbett’s biggest regret is tied up with his greatest joy. When Annette returns to town seven years after she left him at the altar, his love for her hasn't changed one bit. And if his match-making daughter and their one-of-a-kind elderly relative have it their way, they’d pick the romance up right where it left off. Working alongside Annette on her brother’s construction project, Steve senses the flicker of their old flame. But he knows it will take a lot of sweat and tears to rebuild the crumbling trust for a second chance at happily ever after.

With years and heartache between them, can Annette and Steve learn to have faith in each other and rebuild a new future together?

Wedding of the Century is a contemporary romance about second chances. If you like fiery chemistry, precocious children, quirky matchmakers and emotional journeys of the heart, then you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s small-town romance.

When his Irish eyes are smiling, she's in danger of losing her head ... and her heart. 


Eleanor Thatcher refuses to be charmed by the Irish balladeer she hires to strum up business for her Gloucester, Mass., restaurant. She's far too practical to fall for a fantasy-spinner like Aidan Padraic Cahill McCrea. Yes, she feels his spell, but bitter reality has taught Eleanor that dreamers drift on, leaving heartache.

Cahill finds the woman he wants to share his future with in strong-minded, too-serious-for-her-own-good Eleanor. But he must convince her of his staying power. And his time in this precious new world is running out
