Easter in Dry Creek by Janet Tronstad

Reclaiming the Cowgirl's Heart

Clay West is back in town with amends to make and minds to change. The cowboy has spent four years in jail for a crime he did not commit, and he's determined to restore his good name. The former bad boy's first priority is convincing childhood friend Allie Nelson of his innocence. But she—more than anyone—has suffered in his absence. Allie can't admit how much she's missed Clay—and she can't betray her family by putting her trust in him. She vows to forget her schoolgirl crush. But Clay will settle for nothing less than her forgiveness—and her whole heart.

It was a pleasure to visit Dry Creek again. Author Janet Tronstad skillfully crafted a novel in which the characters were honest, believable, and struggling. The book was paced just right, and kept my interest throughout. The Dry Creek series is one in which you can enjoy each as a stand-alone. I thoroughly enjoyed this book although I did not read it during the Easter season. I received a copy of this book from the author for review purposes. The thoughts expressed here are my own.

Oh how I love to return to Dry Creek, Montana! I could see the horses coming into the barn with snow on their backs and could smell the coffee brewing in the kitchen. Janet Tronstad always delivers a heartwarming, real life story line. Clay West returns to Dry Creek after spending four years in prison. Unbeknownst to him, Allie Nelson has kept him in her thoughts and close to her heart that entire time. Allie's brother Mark attempted a robbery four years ago and was seriously injured in that where he has spent several years in a coma with no recollection of these events. Clay is blamed for the robbery and Mark's near death. Clay stands firm in his innocence and receives forgiveness from Mark's family. In return, his faith grows and his future with Allie is bright.

I've been waiting to visit Dry Creek again! Oh how I've missed it! How hard it would be to be convicted of a crime that you didn't commit, especially if it involved a friend. This is what happened to Clay West. He was accused of armed robbery 4 years ago and sent to prison but he didn't do it, although he was there. Because he was with his friend, who was the one who really did it but was injured badly and is in a nursing home, the law arrested him and sent him to prison. But, he got an early parole to work at the Nelson Ranch where he was before the crime and help them out. There are some in Dry Creek who wont give him a chance and that's hard. Very true to life though - people don't want to give you a chance to say you didn't do it and even try to listen to you! Allie is the daughter of the Nelson ranch owner. She was half in love with Clay when he lived at the ranch before the crime but now she doesn't know if she believes Clay DIDN'T commit the crime. She's angry is back at the ranch. It's her BROTHER that is lying in that nursing home. There is a lot to work through. This story is all about redemption, second chances and looking inside yourself to decide if you would believe someone declaring their innocence! I recommend it!

It's so good to be back home in Dry Creek Again! And what better time than Easter? Clay West comes home to Dry Creek after serving time in jail for a crime he didn't commit. He has never stopped proclaiming his innocence and he isn't about to anytime soon. Now if only he could convince his childhood friend Allie Nelson. This was such a beautiful Easter love story. I loved Clay's redemption and Allie's forgiveness. There is a lot of healing that needs to be done with these characters and the rest of the Nelson family. I loved how the Easter story was woven throughout. Not a lot of books take place during Easter and this one was made even better because it takes place in the small ranching town Dry Creek, Montana. Every visit into this small town makes me wish it was a real place that I could settle down and plant some roots. The town is as much a character in the story as Clay or Allie. You won't be disappointed in your brief stay there. I will admit I teared up throughout the story and it made me want to reread the book of Luke. Not a bad thing at all. It's always a good thing to want to read your Bible. =) And the best part of the book? It has an epilogue. My friends and I always say how we wish that books have a proper ending. A proper ending being an epilogue. I appreciate that Janet Tronstadt included one in this book. It was the best ending of all. I hope more authors take note and include them in their books too. I hope you give this book a read. I think you will find that you love Easter in Dry Creek as much I did. I hope to read many many more stories about this wonderful small Montana town.

Easter in Dry Creek by Janet Tronstad Dry Creek Series Clay West is returning to Dry Creek and the Nelson ranch after four years away. Many men in prison claim their innocence, but Clay truly was one of those falsely accused. But Allie would never accept that he was the innocent one—and what he wouldn't do to have her believe him. Allie Nelson's life had turned inside-out four years ago. The man she had a crush on had fooled them all and ruined their lives. Her family would never be the same. And now, Clay West has the nerve to show up their doorstep. And yet, part of her still misses having him around. What a traitor her heart is. I loved this. I've always enjoyed all the Dry Creek stories, but I really enjoyed this one. Some really great secondary characters that I hope will get their stories told. The attitudes of the town's people came to life in how they treated Clay. How easy it is to assume a man guilty and not give second chances.
