I appreciated the succinct writing style of this author and her no-frills description of early life in the western area of the United States. It was not an easy life and was a particularly difficult one for Katy Anderson when she meets lawman Mitch Logan who tells her she is now a widow…alone with three small children. I liked Mitch, an honest plain-spoken sheriff, who sees a lot in Katy and wants to include her in his future. There was a startling twist in this story too, which added even more depth to the tale. A darling second-chance romance!
A shocking opening introduces Mitch and Katy in such a unique way that I wanted to know how they could possibly get together. Deeper into the story is a clever plot twist that makes this an engaging historical novella. Ms Fraser introduces characters in such a way we immediately worry about them and what will happen next. The plight of women and their utter dependence on men in the 1800s was portrayed with emotion and caring. A satisfying read.
