Jesse Santos lives with her twelve-year-old son on her late husband’s ranch, which has been in the family for generations. Since Cain’s death, she has worked the land as best she can, despite drought, cattle rustlers and the fear she is losing her mind. Although she misses her husband, she wishes his spirit would stop talking to her. Cain worked for a psychic investigation company and deeply believed in ghosts. He promised her he would come back to help her after his death, if she needed him. However, she can’t quite believe it’s really him and not hallucinations from a brain addled by too much stress. When Cain tells her that help is coming on a piebald horse, she doesn’t know what to think. Then, Cain’s younger brother Coy arrives out of the blue. He could be a big help, but he doesn’t intend to stick around. Not knowing his parents and brother had died, he only planned to stop in for a short visit before continuing to Utah, but the beautiful widow and her courageous son won’t make it without him.
The hardscrabble existence of life in those days, the engaging characters, and the fascinating look at Yaqui Indian culture, carries the reader into a simpler time when it was easier to believe in spirits and their ability to communicate beyond the grave.
This story was an entertaining read that kept me spellbound to the end. Coy says one thing to Jesse that truly encompasses the essence of the story: At last he turned and faced her. “A man loving you from beyond the grave, I’d take that as the highest compliment one can give a woman.” That statement just shreds my heart.
If you enjoy Romance, Paranormal stories, or Westerns, read Comes an Outlaw. You will love it.
Coy has been gone for years. He decides to stop by the ranch on his way to Utah. He is shocked to hear his parents and older brother are gone. He tells Jesse he will stay for a short while and then leaving.
Can she convince Coy to stay a while longer and help her with the cattle or will he ride on out? Can his past change her mind?
The writing will have the reader turning the pages. The time period is the perfect setting for a widow trying to make it with her son. Both characters can hold your attention with Coy not wanting to settle down and Jesse now wanting to leave. The author does a wonderful job with twists to keep the story interesting. This is a story of hope, romance, paranormal and second changes. I love Fetch and Grange they made the story sweeter.
Fantastic fast paced, romantic read, filled with all the best elements, lost man, lonely woman bit of drama to separate them so they have to fight to get back together. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a lightweight romance they can read in public. Other than a few steamy kisses this is safe for those who do not like highly descriptive sexual scenes.
I could see the story unfolding in my mind's eye as I raced to finish this fast-paced story. The writer has a compelling imagination. I especially enjoyed the ghostly elements and the Native American Yaqui character who gave gravitas to the story. I hoped to see more of him and certainly hope to see him in future books. A solid three and a half stars rounds up to a four for this first selection in this anthology.
