town unwilling to hire a woman, a hermit
mountain man amid the town people of
Jubilee Spring make this a fantastic story.
Brigid Belham arrives in Jubilee Springs
as a mail order mail. The prospective
groom is an attorney but when introduced,
he rejects her due to her height.
With nowhere to go, Brigid tries to get a
clerk job in town. She has experience from
helping her father with his accounts.
But alas no one will hire a woman.
Taking a hike into the woods, she gets
lost. She gets caught in a high rainstorm.
Livingstone Quinn, a mountain loving man
lives alone in the forest. He keeps to himself.
He goes into town to deliver eggs but does
so before the town is awake to avoid people
He discovers Brigid in the swollen stream
area. She is wet, muddy and discombobulated.
He takes her into his home to get her dry and to
keep her safe. She needs to stay there until
the stream drops to a safe level to cross.
An undeniable chemistry develops between
Brigid and Quinn complicating the situation.
Life, love and happiness are on the line.
What will happen between the two after
Brigid returns to town??
This is a well written, well described historical
fictional western story. You will feel as you are
right in the town, feel Brigid's rejection by the
attorney, her let down at not being able to
secure a position. You will hear the rushing
water of the stream, feel the rain soaking
Brigid' clothing, feel the mud caking on her.
You will meet Down (the intimidating rooster)
with his flock of hens and Dandy, the goat.
The reader becomes part of the story.
This is a quick, enjoyable read that everyone
is a collaboration of multiple authors.
The town of Jubilee Springs started as a mining town in Bower, Colorado, but women were scarce, so the town's attorney ordered a mail order bride.
A Novella, approximately 142 pages, but those pages are packed full of a forever kind of love, which he found unacceptable and pushed her aside. Now she has no where to go, what will she do? Despair and emotions are her only friends.
This is the journey of Brigid Belham, who gets caught in a rain storm and
Livingstone Quinn, a hermit who only wishes for peace and quiet.
An arrogant attorney, a mail order bride, a hermit, and a town that will not hire a women, makes HOME TO ROOST some exciting reading. I was glued to the pages of Brigid and Livingstone's story, as they make sense of their feelings, face Brigid's possible ruined reputation, her acceptance in town and the danger that lurks. HOME TO ROOST is a story of longing to belong somewhere, finding love, peace, acceptance and a place to call home.
Well written with engaging and an interesting cast of characters. Steady paced. The plot was well thought out and excuted. Although, a Novella, and a quick read, Ms. Torres manages to reward readers with a fantastic read, where nothings left out of a remarkable story of love, acceptance, healing, and finding a HEA. Oh and the animals added a perfect mix in the story. You couldn't help but laugh at their antics.
Brigid and Livingston are a unique couple but find they have much in common.
Once again, Ms. Torres has written a story that will capture your heart and cause you to fly away to another time, place where women were not valued except as property, to some men anyway, but not all. HOME TO ROOST is a no brainer, it's a must read. Fans of clean, sweet, historical western romance are sure to enjoy HOME TO ROOST. If you're not a fan of sweet romance, give it a try, I think your enjoy your time in Bower, Colorado and Jubilee Springs. I look forward to going back soon. As the saying goes "ya'll come back now". I intend to, soon! Well done!!

I've said it before, and I'll continue to say it. I love all of this author's books, but there is something so special about her sweet Westerns that takes me on a journey in time and makes me wish I could sojourn there for a little longer. She had an acute knowledge of the era and pours so much of her heart into each of these stories, that I can imagine even the minutest details of each scene. As always, I am looking forward to the next adventure in Jubilee Springs.
