Pam Hillman in her new book “Claiming Mariah book coverClaiming Mariah” published by Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. takes us into the life of  Mariah Malone.

From the back cover:  After her father’s death, Mariah Malone sends a letter that will forever alter the lives of her family. When Slade Donovan, strong willed and eager for vengeance, shows up on her front porch, Mariah is not ready to hear his truths: her father’s farm, the only home she’s ever known, was bought with stolen gold. With Slade ready to collect his father’s rightful claim and force Mariah and her family out on the streets, Mariah must turn to God for guidance. Though Mr. Frederick Cooper, a local landowner, promises to answer her financial woes if she agrees to be his bride, Mariah finds herself drawn instead to the angry young man demanding her home.

With the Lazy M ranch now under Slade’s careful eye, he unearths more than he ever imagined as a devious plot of thievery, betrayal, and murder threatens the well-being of the ranch, endangering those who hold it dear. As the days dwindle until the rest of the Donovan clan arrives at the Lazy M ranch, Mariah and Slade must rise above the resentment of their fathers and see their true feelings before greed changes their futures forever.

I have never read of two women running a ranch.  Mariah and her grandmother are running the Lazy M but the Donovan’s feel it is their ranch and they want to take over.  Simple enough really.  However there is more going on than either Slade or Mariah know about and the two of them must band together to withstand the evil being plotted against them. Ms. Hillman has given us great characters who live and breathe on the pages and draw us into their lives so that we root for the good guys and do not want the bad guys to win.  Slade and Mariah are meant for each other but before that can happen they will have to reconcile with their pasts and their fathers so that they can embrace the present and their futures. All I can say is that “Claiming Mariah” is great fun.
