Book Description

In the mountains of Colorado, a small town called Angel’s End welcomes everyone with open arms—even a man fleeing his past…

Wounded and on the run, Cade Gentry stumbles into a kind man who’s on his way to become the new pastor of Angel’s End. But not long after Timothy Key takes him in, Cade’s enemies catch up with him, and the young pastor is killed in the crossfire. Cade survives, stealing Timothy’s identity to escape, and arrives in Angel’s End on the brink of death.

Leah Findley is the sheriff’s widow, trying to make ends meet for herself and her son. Having the new minister as a boarder will help, but she isn’t expecting him to be wounded when he arrives. And she definitely isn’t expecting the feelings that the new preacher stirs deep inside her.

The more time Cade spends with Leah, the deeper he falls in love. To Cade, she’s an angel who’s saved his life and given him the sense of hope he’s never known. But he’s not the man she thinks he is, and before he can find permanent shelter in Leah’s arms, he must learn to have faith and put his former sins to rest...

Angel's End by Cindy Holby
Historical Romance May 1st, 2012
4 ½ stars

Those who enjoy slow, sweet westerns filled with redemption and huge heart will love this romance.

Cade Gentry's life has been hard since his father abandoned him and his brother at an orphanage. They were adopted by an abusive family and then cruelly separated. As a result, Cade became a bitter outlaw but now he wants to redeem his life. But he is being pursued. Luckily, he is saved by a pastor. However, his pursuers find him and kill the pastor. In desperation, Cade switches clothes with the pastor in hopes of starting a new life and evading his past.

Leah Findley and her son live in Angel's End. Leah is a widow whose husband, the town sheriff was murdered. To make ends met she has agreed to provide food and lodging for the new pastor. But when he arrives he is unconscious and suffering from a life threatening gunshot wound. Leah is shocked to find herself attracted to him. When she contracts the measles and they are quarantined together things only get more complicated.

The simple and authentic hometown feel of this new series will invite readers. Those who enjoy Dorothy Garlock's books will find a haven in this sweet story. This quiet novel slowly unfolds as the main characters find a deep love. Leah feels guilty having feelings for Cade because she thinks she is betraying her love for her husband. Cade feels guilty lying and causing more harm by `corrupting' Leah. Both discover a well deserved happiness together. The town has a lot of character as there are also many amusing characters who just beg to have their own stories told!

This quaint, charming western will be sure to appeal to readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet August 3, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'll get my mild negatives out of the way first. Note that if what you're looking for is a very sweet romance, these are complaints that likely won't bother you much! There are a couple of moments that felt over-the-top to me, such as the delivery of the pastor's last words at the beginning of the book, the stereotypical spinning of the gun when holstering it; that sort of thing. Also, since this is obviously a romance/redemption tale, the general plot can't really help but be relatively predictable. Again, not a problem as long as that's what you're looking for.

I like Leah; she's a nice combination of nervous and strong, stubborn and shy. Cade seems to care too little about keeping up his charade since he's counting on leaving town; it felt like he should have at least been trying. That said, he has a fun, mischievous, sweet, haunted personality that's perfect for this sort of tale. Also, given his background in running cons, it's fun to watch him face off with one of the town's more perceptive personalities. The son, Banks, is better than I usually expect from romances; he wasn't as perfectly precious as I'm used to, even though he's still the wish-fulfillment-fantasy sweet kid.

The romance is sweet, and obviously it takes precedence in space and pacing over the action. There's a remarkably adorable kitten in here that stole every scene she was in, not to mention two fun dogs--it's a great book for animal lovers. Pretty much any complaint I had was something that's not considered too great a sin in this type of book as long as you know what to expect, so enjoy it in the spirit it's intended. The sex scenes are nicely done, adult and hot without being too outrageous for the setting. Overall, even though Cindy Holby's Angel's End isn't my usual type of genre/book, I very much enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars terrific inspirational western romance May 1, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Preacher Timothy Keys travels from Ohio to his flock in Angel's End. At his campfire he welcomes severely wounded Cade Gentry for some food, warmth and a good ear. Besides his gut shot wound, Cade suffers nightmares from the deaths of his mother and baby sister. The kind preacher is murdered by Fitch's hired gun Davis who is after Cade.Just before dying Timothy tells Cade to "feed my sheep."

Sheriff's widow and single mom Leah Findley takes an unconscious Cade into her home so she can nurse him back to health. She thinks her handsome patient is the new preacher as he carries a bible with him. As Cade begins to recuperate, he is attracted to his nurse. When Leah catches the measles, they are quarantined together. As they fall in love, their mutual passion explodes. Now, armed with faith in their newfound love, all they have to face is the danger from Cade's past.

This is a terrific inspirational western romance starring a fascinating protagonist who has gone through hell and done many bad things, but starting with the Timothy encounter begins to find his way back to the lord and respectability. Action-packed, fans will root for Cade who used to pray to god as a child to intervene, but eventually concluded the lord laughed at his pleas. Fans will enjoy this engaging historical as High Noon comes to Angel's End.

Cindy Holby has always been one of my favorite writers and I had the pleasure of meeting her several years ago at a book signing in West Virginia. I am so glad she is writing a new series - to date I have read both of her new books and I can hardly wait for new series additions.
