The Ornery Gene
by Warren C. Embree

When itinerant ranch hand Buck Ellison took a job with Sarah Watkins at her ranch in the Sandhills of Nebraska, he thought he had found the place where he could park his pickup, leave the past behind, and never move again.

On a rainy July night, a dead body at the south end of Sarah’s ranch forces him to become a reluctant detective, digging into the business of cattle breeding for rodeos and digging up events from his past that are linked to the circumstances surrounding the murder of Sam Danielson.

Working with his boss Sarah, her nephew Travis Martin, and the cook Diane Gibbons, Buck unmasks the murderer, but at the cost of learning the reality of past events that he chooses to keep to himself.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review- A time that can be true to life and a story that has a good amount of suspense built up.  The characters are written to be interesting and have great personalities.   A great book for older ages and anyone who wants a peek at the rodeo ways or the farm.
