Peace River

Carrie has never known life when it could be perfect. Her father has always been abusive, mostly to her mother, but things were bad enough when Carrie was young that she moved in with her grandfather. He took great care of her right up until the day he died six months ago, but now her father is after Carrie again, mainly to get her inheritance of Ebony Wind and Wind Dance farms. Her dad is really starting to scare her with his friends, and insisting she marry a distant nephew of his named Deek. Carrie knows that she's going to have to disappear for awhile, with her horse, but he's so distinctive that she's unsure how to go about that. Then one day, she meets a couple of rodeo guys, Slade and Rossen. These guys are different, she knows instinctively that she can trust them. When they claim they need someone to cook and schedule for them, she decides to go along, but she doesn't tell them her real name, she's disappearing for awhile, Carrie becomes Isabel, and she's able to sneak herself and Ebony away from her scheming father. She knows that things are dangerous, but she really has no idea just how dangerous, even her heart is in danger of being stolen by a handsome cowboy. But will she ever be able to get her father out of her life, so she can pursue her handsome cowboy?

I was so excited when I was offered to read this book before it came out! I have loved all of the Jaclyn Hawkes books I've read. I really enjoyed this book. The story was engaging, and I loved the characters. Carrie seemed so real! There was plenty of action, adventure and danger to keep me guessing just how everything was going to turn out. I didn't want to put it down until I finished! Jaclyn Hawkes is one of my favorite LDS romance authors. You really can't go wrong with any of her books that you pick up!

I received an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

About the author: Jaclyn M. Hawkes grew up in Utah with 6 sisters, 4 brothers and any number of pets. (It was never boring!) She got a bachelor’s degree, had a career and traveled extensively before settling down to her life’s work of being the mother of four magnificent and sometimes challenging children. She loves shellfish, the out of doors, the youth and hearing her children laugh. She and her fine husband, their family, and their sometimes very large pets, now live in a mountain valley in northern Utah, where it smells like heaven and kids still move sprinkler pipe.
