As Molly gets to know the people of Timber Ridge, she desires to help the Italian and half-breeds. She is frowned upon for doing it and a couple of the men in town are down-right men to her. But the one man she can count on is the town's Sheriff - James McPhereson. In fact, as she spends time with the good, handsome sheriff, she grows to care deeply for him. But the Sheriff has his own scars and the truth may just send him running.
I really, really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed watching Molly get herself into a big mess with a webb of lies that started with an innocent little wedding ring. I loved all the characters (except for the bad one's, but they made the story interesting). The author wrote about pre-marital sex, acceptance, prejudice against people from different countries and blacks, and crime. I enjoyed this book very much!
As I've read these two books, I've grown to dislike and like Rachel, James' sister. She doesn't like Daniel, who was the hero in the first book, but seems so sweet toward everyone else. Her story will be covered in the third and final book of this series. She and the doctor, heavily used in this book, will have a story of their own. I'm so excited!
One disappointing factor I find in the book, and it is a common characteristic in romance novels of nearly every kind, is the depth of insecurity that otherwise strong characters have, and the the need of the storyteller to reiterate it over and again throughout. The author should trust the reader to remember the character's dilemma from the first introduction of it, and keep the story moving forward. Too often, those doubts and fears become a stumbling block, to the character and the progression of the story.
I'm giving it four stars because it has a decently-crafted story line, as well as limited mild violence, no explicit scenes, and no profanity. Far too many books today include the latter three characteristics, which undermine the story. The lack of these traits is not surprising, considering it is published as Christian fiction and by Bethany House Publishers, who seem to be sticking to a stricter standard with respect to the stories it publishes. I definitely would recommend it to other folks I know who enjoy historical romances, particularly those with a western-type theme underlay.
