As far as Thea Michener is concerned, it’s time for a change. With her husband murdered and her much-anticipated baby stillborn, there is nothing left for her in Ladreville. Having accepted a position as Cimarron Creek’s midwife, she has no intention of remarrying and trying for another child. So when a handsome Texas Ranger appears on her doorstep with an abandoned baby, Thea isn’t sure her heart can take it.
Ranger Jackson Guthrie isn’t concerned only with the baby’s welfare. He’s been looking for Thea, convinced that her late husband was part of the gang that killed his brother. But it soon becomes clear that the situation is far more complicated than he anticipated–and he’ll need Thea’s help if he’s ever to find the justice he seeks.
Amanda Cabot invites readers back to Cimarron Creek for a tender story of loss, betrayal, and love in the majestic Texas Hill Country.
A Tender Hope by Amanda Cabot is a must read for fans of Hallmark channel. I fell hard for these characters. It was like watching When Calls the Heart series. That series also featured a young man who went after bad guys.
A Texas ranger finds himself chasing after four killers. He lost his youngest brother and partner due to a shootout. But a clue was left. One of the murderers was a woman. But who was she? Another killer’s bandana fell off his face. But even witnessing the murderer unmasked, finding him and his gang would prove difficult. The chase leads to a woman. Whether this woman is innocent or guilty, Ranger Jackson will find the answers.
A young woman fell in love with a man. One whom she thought was cheating on her. Finally, after losing their only child and husband, Thea is ready to leave. Leaving behind her past home, gives her relief. Only that doesn’t last long. Her new life is filled with danger ahead.
Amanda Cabot brought the reality of the time period to life. I was instantly interested in the way the characters back then lived. There was more danger, risks, and loss to be accepted than there was for hope and peace. Danger like murder and robbery happened all the time. Some were lucky to escape such events, others not so. It was heartbreaking and engaging to follow. The story was clean and provided a deep insight. Themes of second chances, hope, and love were filled on these pages. Overall, I recommend this novel to all.
