Marnie Whitlock has never known what it's like to be normal. Her ability to see the future and people's innermost thoughts makes her an outcast-feared-loathed. Even by her own parents. And her father is determined to beat the curse out of her. Her only chance for survival is to escape Surrender.

Good story and nice to see the town of Surrender expand and still get a taste of the original MacKenzie family.

TROUBLE MAKER packs quite a punch and is both heartbreaking and heartwarming, but it's also a good way to touch base with all the MacKenzies. Marnie Whitlock's gift has been more of a curse than a blessing all her life and leaving Surrender was the only way to escape the memories of a less than ideal home, an abusive father determined to beat the curse out of her and mother who did nothing to stop the abuse. But Marnie only exchanged one prison for another and is now determined to take charge of her life and her future. The first step to taking charge of her life is returning home to Surrender. It's been fifteen years since Beckett Hamilton saw Marnie but she's had his heart all this time. His biggest regret is his inability to save her from her abusive father but her return is the perfect opportunity to see if the fledging feelings between them survived the time apart and Beckett will not give up until Marnie is his nor will he stand by while another man tries to hurt her again. I think this is the most emotional story of this series so far and I loved Marnie and Beckett. My heart broke for Marnie and how she grew up, but she was a survivor and fighter with a core of steel who retained her sweetness through all the hardships of life. Beckett was a charming and adorable cowboy from the first and I loved that he did not give up on Marnie. I have enjoyed every book in this series and look forward to more, especially Shane's story.

Marnie story is one of my favorite "non Mackenzie" second to Gabe of course. Her and Beckett fit. He saw her even when no one else did and for some reason her visions of him or with him were blurry. Her and Mary relationship, heck all the Mackenzie's is what gave her the hidden strength in which she needed even Beckett playeda lart in given her the added support of moving on and becoming FREE. Your past or gift doesn't define you only what you want and strive for. Marnie stopped hiding and fought for herself, her love, and ultimately her freedom. Nice start to the Mackenzie World, Liliana. This was a book of strength and survival.

*May contain spoilers * New to me author. This is the first book for me by Author Liliana Hart and I will simply say. Wow what an intense story. This story starts out pretty sad as a young girl Marnie is severely abused by one of her parents. She is good friends though with a bunch of ranchers’ kids and best friends with Darcy Mackenzie. Marnie daydreams about Beckett Hamilton but that is all It is or is it? Darcy make sure that Marnie knows that no matter what her horrible father told her being with a guy is a normal and natural thing it doesn't make you a horrible person. Marnie also has visions and it scares her to no end. When her father confronts her and Beckett it all comes out. Beckett wants Marnie but when he finds out what has been happening to her he is beyond livid. Can he protect her? Can Marnie break free of her dad? Or will the fates separate any hopes of a future for them? This book is a bunch of good-hearted young people just living life to its fullest and learning new things and strange things about themselves. Very enjoyable reading but also very heartbreaking. Thomas and Riley were hilarious. I truly need to read more work by this author. I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review.
