Great book! Mar 26, 2010
I love any kind of western book or movie and this series is a good one. Lots of romance, mystery and cowboys!
Disappointing Jul 18, 2009
I was really disappointed. The cover of the book is beautiful but dont let that fool you. There was absolutly no meat to the book. The author failed to draw the reader into the story with setting description and character depth. I really wanted the book to get better and I gave it a chance by reading 100 pages into it but eventually I quit. She tried to tell instead of show. The synopsis on the back sounded great but in the end the story was so light it was like drinking air.
Another Peterson winner Jul 16, 2009
Every time Tracie Peterson announces she has a new book coming out, I immediately go and put it on my wish list. She is one of those authors whom I have read every book and is pretty much a standard in Christian fiction. Everything I always like about Tracie's books is included in this one as well. From the detailed historical research to wonderful character development to that comfort feeling you get while reading her books, it's all here. The sisters run a boarding house/restaurant/coach stop that is very similar to the Fred Harvey system used out west. It's a very well run operation and the women are highly respected in town which is unusual for the time period. I liked all three sisters and found them very similar to the way my own family acts. I found the laudanum scene very funny although I can't believe that it didn't enter any one's head that it might have been dangerous! The situation between Harvey and Gwen's late husband was really interesting and I kept going back on forth on whether I believed him or not. Although I felt that a lot of that drama could have been avoided if he had just told her that one thing she had been looking for.
My only qualm with this book was that the storyline seemed a little slow at times. It wasn't that it was boring. I just felt that certain scenes tended to drag at times, and there was a lot of dialogue that could have been taken out. Also Hank and Gwen, while they had good chemistry, just seemed to magically fall in together. It was like banter one minute, lovey-dovey the next. I would have liked some more development than the cliched falling in love with a stranger story. Overall though, I greatly enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the other Gallatin sisters' adventures. It's a fun read that will take you back to the romantic West.

Love this book and really like the author. Can't wait to read book 2. Tracie Peterson's writing is enjoyable and heart warming. You really feel for the characters.

Some girls have all the luck. Some girls have all the pain. That isn't necessarily how the song goes, but it definitely seems to be the theme song of Gwen's life. She has convinced herself that she is cursed and somehow she has convinced herself that it is Biblical for certain people to be cursed. Of course it doesn't help that her husband dies ten days after they are married and her father is killed by a stray gun shot.
When a stranger shows up claiming to be her husband's brother after her husband said he didn't have any family at all she just figures this is icing on her already cursed cake of life.
Her cake starts to crumble when this stranger starts breaking through her hard shell and making his way to her heart.
Seriously, if you haven't started buying your books for summer reading, add this to your list!
