In the Care of the Lawman
When Texas Ranger Jack Elder stormed the isolated Kansas homestead, he expected to find a band of outlaws. Instead, the only occupant is a heavily pregnant woman-and she's just gone in to labor. A loner uneasy with emotion, Jack helps deliver widow Elizabeth Cole's baby girl and can't get back on the trail fast enough. The robber and murderer he's after killed one of Jack's own, and he vows to catch the man. But when he returns to check on Elizabeth and her little one, he discovers that she may hold the key to his unsettled past-and his hoped-for future.
First let me say that I absolutely Love reading Love Inspired books. The fact that once I open the first page I don't normally put them down until I have read the whole book. They fit well inside a small handbag and easily taken to any appointment or to travel with so you can always have one with you. I know what your already thinking here, I can do the same with my kindle. And you would be right. But sometimes I love having an actual book in my hands. So with that being said: here is my feelings about this specific book.
As for the title, "Winning the Widow's Heart" and cover art work perfectly together and portray a great insight into the story. This was one of the times that the cover and the title caught my attention and warmed my heart.
Author Sherri Shackelford has a wonderful flare of capturing your heart and pulling you in. From the title to the synopsis and then into the colorful worlds of the characters, she spins a tale that not only has some suspense, intrigue, from pain, loss and then Love all within 288 pages.
Will be looking forward to reading more from Love Inspired books as well as from author Sherri Shackelford.
So for the reasons above I will be giving this book my Breath Of Life Rating of:
Five Clock Rating!!
Disclosure: I did receive the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and or review. But the Opinions are my own and yours may differ.
