Overview

When they are together, the tension crackles between them--both when they argue and when they kiss. Lacy finds him frustratingly irresistible...but is it truly love?

I bought the first 2 books of this series at a yard sale. I had to have the last book. All 3 books are a must have.

I read the first book: amazing. Read the second: even better. This last one: could NOT put it down. This is definitely one of the best western romances that are christian. You should read this. I loved it.

Fiery Lacy Gallatin has been bent on a mission ever since her father died: to find his killer, at all costs. She's stubborn, independent, and doesn't need anyone. Yet why does she keep falling in love with Dave Shepherd, the man she abhors? Dave Shepherd knows Lacy was meant for him. He just has to figure some way to get her to see that. He's doing everything he can to track down her father's killer, but he also has to keep an eye on her to make sure she doesn't get into any trouble. This is a great ending to the Brides of Gallatin County series. I was sad to see it end. This was definitely my favorite out of the series! (But the others were great reads, too!)

I hadn't read the other two books in the series before I read this one, but that really didn't matter. This book was absolutely delightful and I really enjoyed it. The characters and plot were fun and believable, which isn't always the case with Christian fiction. I think anyone could pick up this book and enjoy it. I'd heartily recommend this book and I'm planning on checking out the rest of the series as well as some other books by Tracie Peterson. While this is Christian fiction, and Christianity plays an important part in the story, I didn't feel like the author was hitting the reader over the head with it. This could make it an excellent choice for the reader who just wants a nice love story without it being x rated. Thanks to Bethany House for sending me a copy of this great book to review!

A Dream to Call My Own by Tracie Peterson is the third book in the Brides of Gallatin County series. I have not read the first two books in the series but picked up pieces of the story of the other two sisters in this book. This is the story of Lacy Gallatin who is the youngest of three sisters. She is a stubborn, independent woman. Her goal is to find the person responsible for killing her Pa. She realizes that this has actually consumed her and the revenge is eating away at her. The deputy sheriff Dave Shepard has been in love with Lacy for some time but she doesn't see herself as good enough for him because of what she considers her past failings. It was an enjoyable story and I look forward to others from this author. I found out my library has some audio books by her so I will try those too!

The final book of the Brides of Gallatin brings an end to the series of these three sisters. It's finally time to tell Lacy's tale and see the struggles she's felt since the day her father died. She's been handling everything alone and keeping it from her sisters. Honestly I just really could not get into this story. I enjoyed it for an easy afternoon read but I didn't really moved or inspired by it. There were times when I got frustrated with the characters and their actions. I have never been a fan of Cubby since the first book and this book only solidifies my reasons. Even though Lacy is very able to take care of herself, she's very stubborn and extremely strong willed. I'm not saying that she needed a man to look out for her, but being on her own is not the best for her as she does not make smart decisions. I really didn't feel chemistry between her and Dave. It's too much of the "oh I shouldn't have done that" after a kiss type of deal which I loathe. Also the historical aspect of the book is downplayed. The story just takes places back in the day, any historical events are not really a factor in the book. To be honest, I really did not think this was Tracie's best series. The characters didn't really stick with me and I never really felt like I could get into the story. There's a lot of stereotypes of women and the West in general that take place in this book. Also the storyline seemed very predictable and sometimes a bit too unbelievable. I felt like I knew what was going to happen as soon as I started reading. That being said though, I did enjoy this book because I always enjoy Tracie's books. Even with its faults, it still makes for comfort reading because I know I'm going to be in for a good story. The novel might have had its faults but it does make for a good read. I just hope that future books will be a bit more enlightening!

I loved the first two books!! And couldn't wait to see what happen to Lacey. Did she find her dad's killer. It's a great story. Must read.
