She’s a high-society lady fleeing her family’s shame. He’s a simple rancher. Is love enough to bridge their differences?
After being disowned a decade ago, rancher Luke Hamblin has worked hard to make it on his own. His younger sisters suddenly join him but he loves having family around him again. He finds himself drawn to his new brother-in-law’s beautiful sister Judith, even though she acts like she’s too good for the lowly folks of Lilac City. When a bitter winter strikes early, he starts losing cattle to apparent wolf attacks. But why is his herd the only one suffering losses?
Escaping a family scandal that resulted in a broken engagement, Judith Breckinridge has joined her brother in Wyoming. As a protection from further rejection, she holds herself aloof. Luke is the one man she wishes to get closer to, but he keeps calling her “sister.” When they’re tasked with working together on the Christmas Fair, can she prove to him she’s more than a felon’s daughter?
I find that I’m enjoying the story of these siblings finding love out in the wilds of the west. Only one more sister to go after this book. This one however, was about their brother who finds love with his new brother-in-law’s beautiful but snobbish sister. It was nice to see Judith soften up around the edges and really try to adjust to the new life she has. And learn to appreciate those she previously thought of as her “lessers”.
The mystery surrounding the girls’ uncle is still there with only a clue here and there. It has been a slow resolve for that one but I expect it will resolve with the last sibling’s book. And who better to resolve it than the spitfire Frances?
This is a quick read or in my case, listen. Perfect if you just want to curl up for a few hours. I still don’t love the narrator but I’ve kind of gotten used to her over the three books.
Violence: mild – dog attack, shooting
