REVIEW: I’m on a Caroline Fyffe kick this week and I just noticed that I never reviewed this story, but have read it in 2012. Not acceptable!
I have to say that I love every story this author writes, and this was a start to a new series which I’m loving a lot.
This is one of those stories that brings a western town to life and introduces us to many of its citizens with an interesting plot and a fast pace.
I adored the hero, Chase Logan, despite his flaws. He had a hard task in front of him, which was made even harder when confronted with a dilemma our heroine had. Being an honorable man, he just rolls with it and decides to help Jessie with her problem.
And speaking of Jessie, it took me a bit to warm up to her, but once I did, she showed herself to be strong and resilient woman with a purpose and a plan. God help anyone in her way!
As both of them carry some secrets in their pasts, it is understandable that their romance takes some twists and turns, but in the end their happily ever after was worth it. Keeper for sure.
