These two may have met their match–in each other.
In the fine tradition established by her Southern grandmama, Aurora Daughtry has recently orchestrated the marriage of her eldest sister and facilitated her middle sister’s engagement. Just when it seems there is nothing left to absorb her considerable talent for managing people, in walks federal deputy marshal Zane Sager.
But Zane is not at Daughtry House for a vacation. He’s tracking a killer and collecting two key witnesses to a federal judge’s murder.
Aurora takes it upon herself to disabuse the cynical lawman of his conviction that the world is out to get him. But just as she’s on the verge of cracking Zane’s defenses, the man he is after reminds him that no one he loves is safe. Ever.
I really enjoyed the way the author, Beth White, wove God naturally into the story. In everyday life, these types of questions do come up. I like reading about other people’s, or characters’, interactions with God because knowing Him is what brings us joy.
There was a scene in the beginning that seemed unnecessary. It didn’t make sense to me why the character would have allowed herself to be coerced into shopping at a bridal store if she had other plans already. But, it made sense later.
The rest of the book captivated me. In fact, it became hard to put it down to eat or sleep when the danger became intense. I liked it so much I want to read the first two books in the series as well.
There is real potential for a fourth book in The Daughtry House Series. I would love to read about the missing item. If you enjoy reading historical romance, I encourage you to get A Reckless Love. I enjoyed the ideas it discusses and the relationships!
I received a free advanced reader copy of this book. All opinions are completely my own.
