Book Description: A woman rancher struggles to save her ranch, but it’s her heart she’s most in danger of losing.
Storm’s ranch is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy after cattle rustlers strike. When her part-time ranch hand dies under suspicious circumstances, two neighboring ranchers step in to help. In jeopardy of losing the only place that’s ever felt like home, who can she trust with her heart?
My thoughts: Storm is living the life that she wants. She is young and owns her own ranch. She has a hard time making the loan payments, but is positive when she takes the cattle to market, she will be able to may her payments. That's when the unthinkable happens.... someone steals eleven of her herd. The same day she learns that one of her employees has died in a car accident.
She receives help from unexpected people. The first is Dak, the widower neighbor. He was the perfect character to help her through her many rocky trials. I can't say he was perfect, but he owned up to his mistakes and did everything to make them right. He took Storm where she was and helped lift her when she needed it.
Storm is not the only victim of the cattle rustler. There is a bit of mystery and suspense as she tries to figure out who did it.
I loved the sense of community in the book. The people look out for each other and are helpful. Kate Palmer did a wonderful job at pulling me into the book and keeping me invested in the plot and characters.
This is a clean romance with mystery. I really enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of Kate Palmer's books.
