NO PLACE FOR A LADY by Maggie Brendan
Just when she thinks she's getting a handle on the constant male attention from the cowhands and the catty barbs from some of the local young women, tragedy strikes the ranch. Crystal will have to tap all of her resolve to save the ranch. Can she rise to the challenge?
Book one in the Heart of the West series, No Place for a Lady is full of adventure, romance, and the indomitable human spirit. Readers will fall in love with the Colorado setting and the spunky Southern belle who wants to claim it as her own."
I appreciated Crystal's determination. I had a hard time liking the foreman, Luke, at first as he seemed a little harsh, but he does grow on you after awhile. Life wasn't easy in the rugged Colorado terrain, and the author did a good job of making you understand the harsh conditions, as well as the beauty of that part of the West. An enjoyable story that left me wondering about some of the other characters, which I am hoping will show up in the next two books.
