Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Surprised when she inherits a small but critical railroad spur, Rachel Bailey is appalled to learn that she has been cleverly manipulated by her late benefactor and must marry annoyingly attractive Sheriff Wyatt Cooper in order to keep it out of the wrong hands. Reluctant to doom the Colorado mining town that depends on the line, Rachel agrees to a strictly business partnership marriage—until pent-up passion explodes between them and changes everything. A sympathetic, resolute heroine, a hero to die for, and a group of fascinating, exceptionally well-delineated secondary characters band together in a uniquely tolerant, closely knit town to defeat a soulless villain. VERDICT From the first sentence, Goodman hooks readers and rivets them in place with magnetic protagonists and just enough perfectly timed backstory revelations to keep the engaging plot on target. Goodman (The Price of Desire) lives in West Virginia. See what the prolific author has to say for herself, p. 60.

    This is an entertaining Americana romance

    In 1882 in Reidsville, Colorado, Sheriff Wyatt Cooper takes his job seriously to protect the townsfolk. He insures everyone is safe including newcomer Rachel Bailey, who he knows is a creature of habit as every male in town knows when they watch her walk the street to her establishment early in the morning. However, no one was prepared when Clinton Maddox dies and shockingly leaves the valuable railroad spur to Rachel, which places her in danger as others want the town's lifeline.

    Wyatt and Rachel agree to wed in a marriage of convenience so he can keep her safe. However, the townsfolk are euphoric and want to celebrate the nuptials. The only ones not ecstatic are Wyatt and Rachel. When her past arrives with two goals to destroy Rachel and claim the spur, Wyatt realizes protecting her has become personal.

    This is an entertaining Americana romance starring an intriguing heroine and a wolf of a sheriff who sings the refrain from I'm Not in Love. The exciting story line contains a strong cast who bring to life the small town that would die without the spur. Jo Goodman provides an enjoyable western romance.

    A fan of Ms Goodman

    This is a delightful book! The story is fast-paced, the main characters are in turn passionate and funny; and all the characters have a way to make you laugh. I would have loved to live in that town.
    I read this book in 1 day. I think that this book is one of Ms Goodman best.

    Riveting Western Romance

    Couldn't put this book down. From the first page I was hooked. The characters are well-drawn and the dialog is excellent. This is how a story should be written
