Lawman by Diana Palmer

When San Antonio FBI agent Garon Grier buys a ranch in Jacobsville, Texas, the strong, silent loner is hoping to mend some broken family fences. He's not looking for love when he finds an unexpected, unwanted attraction to the girl next door, a shy, lovely woman who believes some secrets are best kept hidden. But the truth will prove just as dangerous when Garon tackles the most difficult case of his career, hunting an escaped convict, a child predator whose former victims are all dead. All except one.

Grace Carver grew up in this quiet Texas town. She works as a cook at the local café and nurtures a spectacular garden in the home she shares with her elderly grandmother. She remains unmarried and untouched because of a past darkened by tragedy. Now, at only twenty-five, she's accepted loneliness as a way of life. That is, until Garon.

But only when fear and uncertainty collide in reckless heartbreak does Garon fully realize what he's found with Grace—and what he may have lost. Because his hunt for a killer has led him to the last person on earth he would ever have expected to be the one who had escaped death at the hands of a madman. And now a desperate lawman and a proud woman must decide if secrets will come between them forever…or free them to love.

I've read several of Diana Palmer's works and have thoroughly enjoyed them. However, this book was a bit disappointing. The hero was particularly offensive in his disdain over the heroines looks and perceived inadequacies, and then his later treatment of her was simply inexcusable. Even though he did suffer a bit because of it, he never made amends for his outrageous behavior, and the fact that the heroine accepted that from him only made her seem even more pathetic. Call me old fashioned, but is it really romantic when the guy treats you like he is doing you a favor by being with you?

When I first began reading this story, I thought it was great. Good characters and with some background to make it interesting. WRONG.........Garon was oh, so, cruel to Grace. Shame on you Diana. To say all he did to her in front of other people. Until that part, I loved the book. If you had just had "the other woman" get some of the same treatment I would have been a lot happier with the book. I am one of those readers who likes the bad guys to get their comeuppance.

The reader of this book does a great job! He got all the emotions right, all the attitude and love, and kept me on my toes into each CD. The story turns really is good. Garon is a great jerk in the middle, cause he thinks he has to be, and Grace eventually learns to hold her own and defend against those who have done her wrong. Garon is humbled when he finally learns to open his heart for the first time in 10 years...and he's thankful it's Grace who has shown him it can be done.

I usually love my 'visits' to Jacobsville and all the entertwining characters, but this visit was disappointing. While you cheer for the heroine whole heartedly, the more the story unfolds, you see what a self absorbed jerk the hero is. You can't help but hope some gallant and better suited hero will come along. She was better than him in so many ways. Not what I'd want in a man.

I was absolutely disappointed with this book. As mentioned before, the hero was just down right cruel. It's obvious the heroine has issues, and yet he's still cruel to her. As I was reading, I started hoping that she would find someone else - a twist to the usual romance storyline. I felt sorry for her, but then she became down right pathetic. I think it's important to have different kinds of characters. However, you don't want the hero to be such a jerk that is unredeemable, nor heroine that will just follow along. Hopefully, the next book will be much better. I almost didn't finish this book, but I kept hoping...for something. I was bitterly disappointed.

Another heart-wrenching heroine who suffers & then wins all. Quick, easy read with a satisfying end. But only 3 stars because of portrayal of Garon's former wife. I have been reading Diana Palmer's books for a few year's now, and she excels at creating characters who suffer and then are redeemed, but I'm starting to get annoyed at the one dimensional portrayal of professional women. Almost all of her books portray professional women as loose, immoral, cold, money-grubbing child deserters. Being an educated professional does not make a woman into a frozenhearted slut!

diana palmer writes the best western romances, coupled with a mystery. garon greer is investigating a case that involves a few murders not realizing a neighbor of his can give him the answer he seeks. however someone else does. a wonderful romance, and a mystery sure to please.
