Editorial Reviews

About the Author

A hopeless romantic with a bit of sarcasm thrown in for good measure, Shanna Hatfield is a bestselling author of sweet romantic fiction written with a healthy dose of humor. In addition to blogging and eating too much chocolate, she is completely smitten with her husband, lovingly known as Captain Cavedweller. Shanna creates character-driven romances with realistic heroes and heroines. Her historical westerns have been described as "reminiscent of the era captured by Bonanza and The Virginian" while her contemporary works have been called "laugh-out-loud funny, and a little heart-pumping sexy without being explicit in any way."

This was probably one of my favorites of Shanna's books. It's clean, but also RED HOT! WHEW! Word of warning to anyone who decides to start reading Shanna's books - once you start, VERY hard to put down (ask my husband!). Great characters, story lines and historical tidbits, not to mention I love to cook and how she details meals, etc. is always interesting to me. Be prepared to laugh out loud at times as well as get teary-eyed or smile or the whole gamut of emotions, because you will fall in love with these characters and the story line will draw you in like a magnet. I like the recipes that are always included in her books, too. My only complaint about her books is they need better proof-reading

Format: Paperback
It has been a decade since child bride Maggie Dalton was widowed in turn-of-the-century Baker City Oregon. Lovely, intelligent, and ambitious, she has established a successful dress shop and steadfastly refuses all suitors to her hand. One gentleman in particular, Ian McGregor, has been totally smitten with the beautiful widow and does not give up easily. A Scotsman through and through, he owns the town's thriving lumber business and continues to annoy and irritate Maggie with his attentions. Any young woman who met him would love to become the bride of this husky, handsome, and most eligible bachelor but he has only eyes for Maggie.

Secretly, Maggie cannot deny his charm, rugged good looks and playful banter. However, she stubbornly resists Ian's attempt to woo her because of her irrational fear of losing still another husband. All of her many friends play matchmaker to no avail.

Lifelong friend Sheriff Tully would marry her in a heartbeat if she would consent and this causes confused feelings of jealousy in the big Scotsman. How on earth will poor Ian win her stubborn but broken heart?

Woven throughout this second installment of the author's Baker City Brides collection are dear friends Thane and Jenna along with their adopted children Jack and Lily from the first installment: Crumpets and Cow Pies.

One of the most delightful and attractive features of the author's many collections is the fact that even though they feature lovable characters from previous stories the books are all definitely stand-alone and can either be read individually or as a series. However, after reading just one of them I found them so utterly charming and delightful that I could hardly wait to venture on to the next one in the series.

Humorous and Romantic, what else could it be with a handsome teasing Scotsman with flashing blue eyes as our hero. Ian, in love with Maggie for over two years almost gives up hope that he would ever win her heart and make her his forever. Maggie was the perfect heroine for him, beautiful, sweet, but very sassy and independent, planned on never marrying again. Widowed for ten years, she made a very satisfactory life for herself even though she had to admit there were plenty of lonely nights. I enjoyed reading this book, giggling my way throughout and loving the flirty remarks from Ian to a blushing Maggie. Shanna is one of my favorite authors, never a question when she has a new book out, whether I should buy it or not. There is always a hero and heroine you grow to love and lots of wonderful secondary characters to get to know. This is the second of the series and I loved this one as much as the first, ( Crumpets And Cowpies ). Now I'm looking forward to the third one, ( Corsets And Cuffs ) and hoping Tully will get his hea. Either way, I know it will be one I will giggle my way through. JudyE

This book is so fun! I love this couple and how they develop in the story. There are some really unexpected delights watching her fall in love with him. I liked that these characters are more mature than some books - they have a confidence that they know what they want and are not swayed by others. They are head-strong and determined in a way that brings them together. I have recommended this book to others already. I can hardly wait for Shanna's next book in this series! (Shanna - please hurry and get that next book out!)

I just finished reading the 1st book in this series and I adored it so decided I needed to read this one too. I love Scottish guys ... A delightful story, and as the other story you could feel the "romantic tension" without a blow by blow account... There is another yet. Sully the town Marshal will finally meet his match and of course we will meet up with the others from the first 2 books.

After reading Thimbles and Thistles and the first in the series, I've become a big fan of her Baker's City Brides books! Full of fun characters and a great story line, I had a difficult time putting this book down. I laughed, groaned, worried, and cheered. I'm looking forward to the next in the series!
