Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
When town manager T.C. Kilkenny advertises for women to work in Timbertown, Wyo., he hopes to marry them off to his lumberjacks. To his surprise, he finds himself falling in love with strong-minded Jane Love, who is running from a dark secret and a mysterious tormentor. As a bevy of colorful men and women pair off, veteran western romance novelist Garlock Almost Eden balances humor and danger with a masterful hand in this fast-paced, warmhearted story. Touches of frontier crudity and realistic dialogue help create a full-bodied portrait of the formation of a community in the Old West of the 1880s. The characters and their zest for life will linger in the reader's mind. Apr.

    great read

    The Listening Sky by Dorothy Garlcok
    Time: 1888 Women and children are brought to the town in hopes of starting up businesses for the town.
    The town has no businesses and Jane finds out the man just wanted to get women there for the men who were logging. If TC can keep the men happy they will work and make money for him.
    Jane wants to leave as soon as possible now that she knows why they were brought there. She stepped in to help the cook, take care of the doctor that is dying and to help with little girl who was brought in to see the doctor. She found out what was wrong and went back upstairs and asked the doctor what to do and it worked.
    Someone attacks Jane and when TC finds her he takes care of her along with help from others and he even marries her. TC has found out that somebody wants her and is torturing her with notes.
    Secrets are shared with her spouse and it relieves her tension.
    They hope others will be able to watch her 24/7 when he's not available to do so because someone is still out to get her....
