From the back cover: Lady of marriageable age with two young boys, in need of husband.
I am a good cook and hard worker.
Victoria Eastman grew up in a Texas saloon—an experience that made her tough, resourceful, and determined to forge a new life. So she places an ad in a gentleman’s newspaper… and soon finds herself a suitable arrangement on a farm in Promise, Wyoming. Only problem is that her would-be husband turns up dead the day she arrives.
Rancher Colt McBride is known for his true grit and business smarts. Yet when it comes to his new neighbor, Victoria, he’s stumped: Who is she, really? She’s lovely to look at, of course, and has proven herself a gentle soul. She’s even causing him to question his staunch bachelorhood. But any kind of future may be shattered when a stranger reveals a secret about Victoria’s past—one that could destroy them both. Unless, together, they can take a leap of faith—right into each other’s arms…
Don’t you just love the name of the town in Wyoming: Promise? I think this is a great way to begin a series. She travels all the way to Wyoming to meet this potential future husband and finds him dead. However she does meet Colt whom she had met previously. Their relationship develops and that is what the book is about. This is a very nice romance. There are secrets that come to light, pasts that are exposed and a faith that needs to be reignited. Victoria and Colt are interesting characters that capture your attention and bring you into their world. I am glad I found this talented author and am looking forward to the next book in this series.
