Love on the Range is Jessica Nelson's debut novel and I found it to be a good read! I liked the characters (especially Trevor and Gracie) and I loved the little bit of history that was in Love on the Range.

I liked the mystery that was surrounding who Striker was - I had my guesses, but it wasn't until later in the book that I knew for SURE.

I will say, though, at times it was hard for me to follow the story and I had to reread parts to understand what was going on better. Other than that, I enjoyed Love on the Range very much and am glad I took the time to read it!

If you enjoy historical romances, then I think you might also like Love on the Range - I did! I'm looking forward to reading more of Jessica Nelson's books in the future.

I knew Love on the Range by Jessica Nelson would not disappoint me. I was right. The beautifully crafted plot and sub-plots, the captivating characters, and the historical facts woven throughout the story make Love on the Range cowboy romance at its best.

But that's not the only reason I loved this book. From page one to the last embrace, the author's heart shone through and set this story apart from other romance novels.

If you're looking for a Christian historical romance that will give you hope in a God who still changes hard hearts and brings unlikely people together, don't miss Love on the Range by Jessica Nelson.

Not just a great writer. A great lady of The King.

Jessica Nelson has done a great job in bringing something new to the historical romance genre. She crafts likeable, smart, and funny characters in a unique setting.

Set in 1918, the story takes place mostly on a remote ranch in the Oregon desert. Gracelyn Riley, a burgeoning news reporter, is sent away from her wealthy family in Boston to live with her uncle until the flu pandemic resides. While at the ranch, Gracie sees her stay as an opportunity for the story of a lifetime.

She's looking to interview Striker, an elusive hero who's responsible for the rescue of kidnapped women in white slave trafficking. However, Gracie's efforts to find Striker are hindered by ranch worker Trevor Cruz, a strong, quiet man whose silent nature makes her curious about his background. He knows something about Striker, but he's not telling. As he's constantly dodging Gracie's questions and putting up with her liberal ways, the romantic tension builds. But he has to protect her from the dangers she doesn't see.

Overall, I found Love on the Range a refreshing change in the historical romance genre. It's the first romance I've read that takes into account World War I and the influenza pandemic that swept across America, leaving thousands dead. I enjoyed the suspense of the pandemic interlaced with the threat of slave traffickers running rampant in Oregon.

The plot is interlaced with suspense, mystery, and a sweet love story at its heart.

Love on the Range by Jessica Nelson
ISBN: 9780373829149
Gracie has arrived by wagon and will stay with Uncle Lou. He has a ranch in Oregon and his housekeeper is Mary. Trevor who picked her up at the station is also watching Mary to be sure none kidnap her or do worse.
Gracie has escaped the disease in the East and hopes to meet the notorious Mr. Striker as she's written some articles for publication.
She can't believe they don't really pray at meals or go to church so she will tag along with Mary when she meets up with friends on Sunday. Gracie did get in the back of the wagon and hitched a ride to town to find out if anybody knew where Striker was. The Government is also looking for him.
She is beside herself when her parents show up with a guest before Christmas. She is still trying to find out more about Striker but she has also done some other investigating not business matters.
Gracie is very opinionated and likes to have her freeedom of speech and dress and it's sometimes getting her into trouble by voicing her opinions and doing things not normal for woman of her station.
Trevor talks to her of God and thinks she can understand the way he feels about that.
Now there is another mystery to solve, it just never ends...
Love tale of the government and talk of how the FBI first started out.
Really enjoyed the ranch live and hidden secrets and other mysteries.

This is, yet again, another one of those books where I almost gave it a 4 star rating. I went back and forth for a while on what to rate it, but finally decided to give it 3 stars.

Love on the Range was a nice, one-time read that gave a very interesting view of ranching in the early 1900s when hoop skirts and horses were being replaced with short dresses and automobiles. I really enjoyed a peek at what ranch-life was like for people during this changing time in history.

Gracelyn was such a fun character! She had this bubbly way about her that I found instantly attractive and sweet and because she was such a talkative type...it led to some humorous scenes that I couldn't help laughing over. Trevor made for a good hero--kinda quiet, but still super-sweet and gentle. His proposal scene at the ending was great--really loved it!

And, of course, the mix of Striker, and who he is, adds a lot of drama and intrigue into the plot. If I had to name one thing, however, that caused me not to completely enjoy this book, it'd probably be the plot. It just seemed to take a while for anything to happen. All the action took place within the last few chapters, and before that the story is just slowly building. But that's just me. :-)

The writing was good! Very crisp and clean and the descriptions of the Oregon territory around Gracelyn was refreshingly vivid. One or two action scene I felt rather "jerky", but fun to read nonetheless. Love on the Range is a very nice read from a promising debut author! I look forward to seeing what she comes out with next.

I received this book from the author. It was not required that I give a positive review, but solely to express my own thoughts and opinions of this book, which I have done.
