Saturday Book Stroll-Last Chance, California by Miralee Ferrell-Summerside Press
Most Saturdays, I will be sharing books that I'm currently recommending!
ABOUT THE BOOK:
It's 1877 and Alexia Travers is alone in the world. Her father has died unexpectedly, leaving her burdened with a heavily mortgaged horse ranch. Marrying one of the town's all-too-willing bachelors would offer an easy solution, but Alex has no interest in marriage. Instead, she dons men's trousers and rides the range, determined to make the ranch a success on her own.
But despite Alex's best efforts, everything seems to go wrong: ranch hands quit, horses are stolen, and her father's gold goes missing. Alex is at her wit's end when wrangler Justin Phillips arrives in Last Chance with his young son, looking for a job. But there seems to be more to Justin's story than he's willing to share. Will Alex ever be able to trust him? More importantly, will the independent woman finally learn to depend on God?
Every time I pick up one of these new Summerside Press books, I am hooked even more on the line. This story is full of romance and intrigue. And one of the very special things about it is the unique sense of setting that the author brings to the story. This is going on my Keeper Shelf, definitely.
Hope you will consider picking up this week's featured Saturday Stroll book.
