Book Review ~ "Peace River" by Jaclyn M Hawkes

Peace RiverPeace River by Jaclyn M. Hawkes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Contemporary Romance (LDS)

Book Description:  The police didn't understand the danger, but she did. Her father had always been abusive, but now, with a ten million dollar Thoroughbred farm on the line, and a powerful bookie leaning on him, her father had become out of control. But how do you get away and take a world famous stallion with you? Carrie was getting desperate when a handsome and honorable but thoroughly cynical rodeo cowboy from Wyoming happened to show up with a horse trailer. He didn't ride a white horse, but he was definitely a knight in shining armor.

He'll protect her from the mob, but can she survive falling in love with a bull rider?

My thoughts:  Carrie is in a dangerous situation, her father is trying to use her inheritance to pay off gambling debts. He is wrapped up with some dangerous people and will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

Her friend sees an ideal situation, two rodeo cowboys have stopped in the diner where she works, Carrie could go with them and cook for them while they are on the road. Carries father wouldn't know where she is and it will keep Carrie and her valuable stallion safe.

Rossen and Slade are good men, willing to help out and protect Carrie, who takes the name Isabel to guard her identity.

This was a fun book for me to read. I enjoyed the storytelling and romance that ensues between Isabel and Slade. They needed each other to find peace and happiness.

This book has an LDS background. The religion is not the prominent part of the story. It is a love story of two people finding each other and at the same time finding a love and trust in God.

I reviewed the second book in the series "Above Rubies" on June 11th.  Here is the link to the review.
