This was a series I thoroughly enjoyed reading. It was my first time reading anything by this author and she is a great storyteller. All three books blended very well togther, and though you could read them as stand alones, I highly recommend you read them in order because you get to know the people and town and they really grow on you.

Harriet Kirk finds herself moving to Ladreville Texas with her younger siblings to teach at the school and to leave their past behind them. She is an intense little lady who takes very little thought of how she looks, but has a great concern and care of her family. Former Texas Ranger Lawrence Wood is the new sheriff and mayor of the town and he and Harriet don't exactly hit it off. They seem to bring out the worst in each other at times. They both have some fears they need to conquer and a past they need to deal with so they can find happiness in their future.

There are so many good characters in this story. The people you have met in the other two books just seem very real and the town is described in a way that you feel like you would want to travel there and see this town and meet these people. They are diverse and all interesting in their own way. There is some drama and danger, conflicts and solutions and alot of love flowing through this story. I just found myself entertained and had a hard time putting it down until I finished. The men are tender but strong, and the ladies have a mind of their own, but a heart that wants to be wanted and loved. A very good job goes to Amanda Cabot. I will definately be reading more of her work.
