  • 4/5; 4 stars; A-I really enjoyed this addition to the Ransom Canyon series. Sheriff Dan has played a role in all the previous books and it was great to see him in the spotlight for much of this one. He is one of those deserving characters that you hope like heck is going to get a HEA.I would not recommend you read this book as a standalone, not because it would be hard to follow, but because you would miss out on the richness of the town and its characters. For example, in one scene in this book [...]


  • This book is simply wonderful! I highly recommend it to any reader who enjoys complex characters and a great plot.


  • A fabulous book with a multi-layered story line! The language, the imagery, the depth of emotion all carried me away! I've known Ms. Thomas as a fellow writer for some years, and have read her books in the past, but I fell out of the habit. NO MORE! I'm finding every Jodi Thomas books I can get my hands on! She is absolutely outstanding!


  • I received a free copy of Wild Horse Springs in return for an honest review. Again Jodi Thomas has given us a interesting story line with several romances intertwined. Dan Brigman and his daughter Lauren are characters we met in previous books. Lauren and Lucas's romance is still up in the air but Dan's is unexpected but very,very sweet. While I liked both Dan and Brandi the character's who stole the show for me were Cody, Tess and Thatcher. Cody and Tess are two lost souls who fit perfectly and [...]


  • Dan Brigman is the sheriff of Crossroads. He’s been alone for a long time, though not always lonely, per se. He loves his daughter, who’s grown and moved away, trying to figure out life for herself. He loves his job, and it keeps him busy. But it isn’t until he meets Brandi Malone, a singer who goes from gig to gig in an attempt to run away from her past and her pain, that he remembers how nice it is to have a woman in his life. He gets attached, wants her to stay—but refuses to tie her [...]


  • I broke down and bought my own copy of this because I was just having to wait too long for my turn to roll around on the library's hold list. I liked it a lot. Because the sheriff finally found someone for himself. I enjoy Jodi's taciturn characters who can't talk to each other-- male or female, many of them seem to find talking kind of silly. But they find each other anyway. The sheriff's daughter may be finding her way to clarity also in this one. She's been caught between two guys for a long [...]


  • Originally posted at smexybooks/2017/02/review-Thomas’ small town contemporaries are always a welcome respite as they weave a cozy tale of love, laughter, pain, and heartbreak of small town living. Similar to her Harmony series (reviews here), each book pushes forward on the arc while, discussing one or two characters romances while dealing with a small thrilling mystery on the side. The fifth book in Jodi Thomas’s Ransom Canyon series takes readers back to the small town of Crossroads, TX w [...]


  • Just…terrible. Welcome to Crossroads, TX, where intrigue meets true love. Sheriff Dan Brigman finds a blue rhinestone cowgirl boot in the middle of the road and goes in search of its owner. Singer Brandi Malone is drifting through town and running from her family and her past, but Dan makes her feel wild and free. Dan's daughter Lauren is a struggling author missing her small town roots when she gets a call to come home to help out a friend. She reconnects with her old lover Tim and her first [...]


  • Originally reviewed for buriedunderromance WILD HORSE SPRINGS, the fifth entry in the Ransom Canyon series by Jodi Thomas, is an interesting look into life in small town Crossroads, Texas. The plot is full of colorful characters, mystery, and several delightful romances. It all starts with a blue cowgirl boot. Romance #1: Sherriff Dan Brigman, a single father, is very lonely since his only daughter, Lauren, moved out to be on her own. While on duty, Dan finds the fancy blue boot in the middle of [...]


  • Series Ransom Canyon,book #5 "Wild Horse Springs" by Jodi ThomasI have started reading this author again after some time apart. "Awesome stories that you want to read all in one setting BUT you put it down to savor those larger then life characters that Jodi puts in her stories. I loved this one with Dan Brigman the sheriff and Brandi Malone a beautiful young woman who sings from her heart. There is a lot of adventure and mystery in this one and you are going to have so much fun coming along for [...]


  • *** first reads winner****I’m not sure why my review never posted for this but let’s try again. It was absolutely phenomenal!! Never have I enjoyed a book more. Author Jodi Thomas is a truly gifted writer and I loved the fact that I was immediately sucked into her world. With every word I read I felt more and more like I was there. I could smell the grass, feel the sun on my face etc. it was truly a amazing read.


  • Welcome to Crossroads, TX where there just seems to be so much happening! The main story line in Wild Horse Springs is the sheriff in town, Dan Brigman. Dan has been divorced for years and since his wife left, he just hasn't dated, much to the chagrins of the women in town. But he's be busy raising his daughter and being the law to worry about a relationship. Plus no one has really ever caught his eye until Brandi Malone.Brandi has never been one to stay in one place for long, so what could a li [...]


  • Another book I hated to have end, it was like a bunch of stories (3 of them romance) going on all at once, with characters you really care for, and the author has them all moving along and flowing together so smoothly and she wraps them all up at the end not leaving you hanging. Do not miss this one, and I'm actually going to be looking for other books by this author. I won an e book copy of this book from and a big shout out THANK YOU to them, I really enjoyed the hours totally lost in this bo [...]


  • From the opening sentence of the book, you walk into the small town life, the slower pace, the caring, and nosy neighbors, the community that will always back you up. And it is so easy to get lost on the pages, the drama, trouble, and life of the characters as they are trying to find their way forward. It is like visiting old friends for those who are following series, as things pick up from where it was left off in the last installment. I'm sure you could read this story as a stand-alone, but t [...]


  • 4.5 stars and loved it. Wild Horse Springs by Jodi Thomas is #5 in the Ransom Canyon series, and I loved it. Jodi Thomas has a gift for setting her story in Texas and bringing them to life. Her characters are ordinary, heroic, loveable and I just want to live there among them. There is always a bit of a danger in writing a small town story, there are so many out there, I get bored by them at times. Not so with this series, so entertaining.We meet some much loved characters and some new ones, in [...]


  • Book #5 of the series Ransom Canyon; Wild Horse Springs, takes up where the last book Ransom Canyon left off.This book, started out with a couple of twists that made me keep reading and waiting to find out what was going to happen next. You have Dan Brigman; sheriff of Crossroads, Texas. Brandi Malone, singer, someone with lots of secrets. Dan and Brandi meet after the sheriff found a blue boot in the middle of the road. Will there be love?Then you have Lauren Brigman; daughter of Dan Brigman; c [...]


  • I hadn't previously read about the town in the Ransom Canyon series and if you have, you might enjoy this tale more. We see a series of vignettes about people's lives and gradually they tie together to form a portrait of the residents as a whole. I like that various age groups are visited.To start, the sheriff, not overworked, finds a blue boot with high heels and rhinestones in the road. This is so unusual that it's easy to track down the owner; a visiting stage singer. She seems like a nice pe [...]


  • You all know I love romance and I was looking forward to Wild Horse Springs. There is a lot more packed into this story than the synopsis would lead you to believe. I think fans of this series will enjoy this return to Ransom Canyon. Unfortunately, I just didn't enjoy the story. While I did finish it, I had a hard time connecting with it. Part of that could be because I haven't read any of the other book sin the series. I felt like there were a lot of back stories with the characters that I was [...]


  • Another great entry in the Ransom Canyon series. This time we focus on Sheriff Dan Brigman and Brandi Malone, a singer, who knocks Dan's socks off in the bar (and eventually in his bed, too!) The trio of Lauren, Lucas and Tim are here, too, though their respective relationships remain fraught with issues yet to be resolved.In this story, Sheriff Dan has several crimes to try to solve: the fire in the bar that threatens Brandi, the beating of Thatcher by a pair of deadbeats (one after he loses an [...]


  • Step into the magical world Jodi Thomas has continued to engulf her readers in, with another spectacular Ransom Canyon book. Wild Horse Spring delivers mystery, romance, new and old loves found. But are they??? Grab you some free time, your favorite beverage, and settle in for a truly wonderful romantic mysterious adventure. But you'll be frustrated when you finish and the next book isn't right beside you to begin.


  • It started with a fancy-tooled cowgirl boot. This exciting, emotional novel is a treat to all who love Jodi Thomas’ novels. She writes of characters who are flawed just as her readers are, who are broken but not beyond repair. Whether broken in body or heart, most look at themselves with a too-critical eye. This reader finds a little of herself in each character in this fifth offering in the Ransom Canyon series.Sheriff Dan saw the boot standing upright on the highway line and picked it up, th [...]


  • This is a fun contemporary romance with the plus of a mystery and touch of danger. Dan is a great character who brought smiles to my face from the very first pages.Dan is a respectable lawman whose wife walked out on him years ago. At least he had his wonderful daughter, Lauren, to watch over, raising her on his own and even allowing her to study and work at the sheriff’s office. Dan hasn’t had much to do with women since. When he finds a sparkly, fancy cowgirl boot in the road he wonders wh [...]


  • I received a free copy but voluntarily reviewed it.I love Jodi Thomas’s books. They are mostly Westerns (historical and/or contemporary) and take place in small towns. Wild Horse Springs is a contemporary. It is the fifth book in the Ransom county series. Although there are past books in this series, it can easily be read as a stand-alone because it has a beginning and an end for these characters. However, since there is a common theme that runs through all books, it adds to your enjoyment if [...]


  • I read a bit of everything in the romance genre. From historicals to westerns to paranormal to Christian, I've read 'em all! It just so happens that I haven't read a western in a quite a while, so I was excited to read this new book from Jodi Thomas. I'm always open to trying out a new-to-me-author's novels and while I was blown away by the story, it was good. The characters presented herein are likeable. I like a dashing lawman and Sheriff Brigman doesn't disappoint. Who doesn't love a hunky he [...]


  • So much going on in this book! Ms. Thomas weaves a number of characters' stories into this one--Dan and Brandi, Lauren and Lucas, Cole and Tess, Thatcher and Hailey (that last one is not a romance--Thatcher's 18 and Hailey's 5!) --along with a strong thread of suspense running throughout. It could have easily all been too much, or too confusing, but I'm happy to say it wasn't. One couple doesn't get to an HEA (yet--fingers crossed that they will at eventually!) but everyone else reaches a highly [...]


  • I continue to enjoy the Ransom Canyon series, as each book has a few storylines and incorporates characters from previous books, and introduces new ones. This is no exception. I like that Lauren has been a steadfast character throughout the series. She was a teenager when the series began and now she is a college graduate. And while she has grown in some ways, she still has a tortured love life. She is confused by the guy she really likes, but gets involved with her best friend because he is int [...]


  • I received a free copy of Wild Horse Springs in return for an honest review. This is the first book I have read of the series as well as the author. I thoroughly enjoyed the complexity and various points of view covered in the novel. Many authors feel it necessary to tell the same events from the perspective of all of the characters. Jodi Thomas didn't feel the need to do this and I like her even more for the choice. There are really multiple story lines occurring within the story each intriguin [...]


  • I started reading this book and wasn't sure if I would like it when I realized that there are three different stories going on at once. Gets confusing sometimes. I was surprised by how easy I could follow all three and rooted for the happy ending I hoped would come. I enjoyed this book immensely and was sad to see it end. The characters made me laugh and cry and just fall in love with the idea of them finally finding happiness. Kudos to Jodi Thomas for a fantastic read. I would recommend this bo [...]


  • I feel like I've been here before with this series I really wanted to give it more stars, but couldn't. I liked all the characters, but thought there was too much going on. Really there were 3 love plots here, which was too many because then the main one had to climax, resolve, and wrap-up in 2 pages and seemed super rushed. And the main one I was interested in, was the most incidental and never resolved in this book. It gets 3 stars for me enjoying all the characters and staying interested, but [...]


  • JODI DID IT AGAINEvery one of Jodi's books has been a success in my book. In fact, I bought the very first one in NYC before it ever hit Texas!!! I never knew a former Home Ec. teacher could have such an imagination and creative mind. I'm so glad she gave up teaching, although Amarillo lost one of the best teachers ever, to entertain me with her books. This one does NOT disappoint. There's passion, love, suspense, a shootout, arrests, and friendship aboard this book. Definitely a must read.
