About the Author
When Olivia Hardin began having strange movie-like dreams in her teens, she had no choice but to begin putting them to paper. Before long the writing bug had her and she knew she wanted to be a published author. Several rejections plus a little bit of life later, and she was temporarily “cured” of the urge to write. That is until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again.
Olivia’s attended three different universities over the years and toyed with majors in Computer Technology, English, History and Geology. Then one day she heard the term road scholar and she knew that was what she wanted to be. Now she “studies” anything and everything just for the joy of learning. She's also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and she’s sometimes accused of being artistic.
A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband, Danny and their puppy, Bonnie.

My favorite in this series! ALL FOR FAMILY is the third book in the Rawley Family Romance series by Olivia Hardin. It takes us back to explain how Meg and Jeremy Rawley met and fell in love. I knew I liked Meg in the previous books, but until this story I had no idea of the depths to her kindness and compassion. She is a true lady with a heart of gold. No wonder Jeremy fell so deeply in love with this innately elegant and gracious woman. Likewise Jeremy is a gentleman in all the best ways... and yet capable of intense passion when it comes to making his Lady feel loved, admired, and cherished. Wonderful story of love. Meg's scene in the greenhouse with Larra Rawley was very touching and really brought to life a character who had only been talked about in the first two books. 4 stars ~Complimentary copy downloaded from NetGalley.

In All For Family, author Olivia Hardin weaves a wonderful story of love, compassion, and forgiveness that will stir the soul and tug at the heartstrings. All For Family is the third book in the Rawley Family Novel Series, and while it can be a standalone read, I would suggest that you read the books in sequential order. That being said, this story follows the courtship and marriage of Meg and Jeremy Rawley via the resurfacing of Meg's painful past when her dying ex-husband Ray requests to see her. The author does a wonderful job of interweaving the present with the past in a span of twelve years that takes the reader along on an emotional journey as Meg and Jeremy's love story unfolds. I loved how their heartwarming courtship develops via letters sent to each other, it was so romantic and very sigh worthy. You can't help but get caught up in Meg's story as her painful past with her ex-husband Ray rises to the surface, their marriage had been built on lies and cover ups, and she struggles with her insecurity about her appearance, yet she was beginning to grow stronger and independent when she meets the wealthy Jeremy Rawley, who shows her the true power of love and the beauty of how desirable a woman she really is. Meg's story comes full circle when she goes back to their hometown to confront her painful past and visits Ray in the hospital ICU, where she graciously accepts his apologies with compassion and forgiveness with Jeremy by her side. I loved how All For Family begins with Ray's request to see Meg, then flows smoothly back into the past twelve years ago with the unfolding of Meg and Jeremy's courtship, and finally brings the reader back to the present with a touching and emotional conclusion that will simply leave a smile on your face.
