Magnolia "Cricket" Cranford and her friends loved to meet out at the old Morgan place to plan their secret Friday outings. They would each pick a person to do something for that would brighten that person's day. This particular day there's serious business to attend to. Marie King's been smitten with Hudson Oliver for simply ages and now the Oliver family is going to be moving far away and Marie's never told Hudson how she feels. Cricket, Ann and Vilma decide that Hudson needs to be Marie's focus for their Friday outing. Only Marie is kind of scared to walk up to Hudson, tell him how she feels and give him a good kiss on the mouth. The only way the friends can think to get Marie to do it is to have Cricket do the same thing first. Only Cricket needs to kiss Heathro Thibodaux, that will be a feat. Heathro's a Texas Ranger who was in a tragic situation just a year before and he hasn't quite recovered from the shock of the whole situation yet. He's just trying to get by and keep his bull out of his neighbor's pastures. Cricket vows she'll do it, and she does, only to get a huge lecture from Heathro. Little do Cricket and her friends know, they are about to face the biggest challenge of their young lives with only Heath between them and the danger, will any of them live to tell about it?
I enjoyed this book. I liked Cricket, she's such a fun, spunky girl. Her friends are fun too. I also like the way they go about the town doing good. Such a fun idea. The plot of this one was pretty good too, I had no idea they had men selling young women into brothels in the old west, really interesting. And most importantly, there was plenty of kissing and flirting in this book. The ending was great! I'd have to say this was a great book! There were a few "farmer" type swear words in this book.
I was able to borrow this book from my local library.
