About the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Jessie Evans, gave up a career as an international woman of mystery to write the sexy, contemporary romances she loves to read. She's married to the man of her dreams, and together they're raising a few adorable, mischievous children in a cottage in the jungle. She grew up in rural Arkansas, spending summers running wild, being chewed by chiggers, and now appreciates her home in a chigger-free part of the world even more. When she's not writing, Jessie enjoys playing her dulcimer (badly), sewing the worlds ugliest quilts to give to her friends, going for bike rides with her house full of boys, and drifting in and out on the waves, feeling thankful for sun, surf, and lovely people to share them with.

I've been a fan of the Lonesome Point books for some time and Ropes and Revenge was worth waiting for. John and Percy's story was fantastic. While this book can standalone, I would recommend reading Chaps and Chance first so you understand John's backstory better. After losing his wife several months before, John is still not really living. He's going through the motions to make sure his two young boys are cared for, but what he's really after is proving that his wife, Lily, was murdered, that she didn't die in a tragic accident. While most of the people in his life feel he just hasn't moved on, there is something that keeps driving John toward what he believes is the truth. Persephone "Percy" Styles is a ghost hunter who is on her way to Lonesome Point to visit the Lawson ranch, but also the Ghost town that Mia's grandmother owned. Once she hits town, she knows this is where she is supposed to be, but it isn't until she meets John, and then hears his story from one of the locals, that she realizes that he may be the real reason she is there. Not only is she attracted to him, but she may very well be able to help him, as she believes that he is right about the circumstances surrounding his wife's death. As John and Percy grow closer to finding out really what happened to Lily, they also grow closer to one another. The question is, is John ready for a new relationship and will digging into Lily's murder end up putting Percy in danger? And, in the end, are these two really meant to be together? Jessie Evans wrote a wonderful story. I enjoyed the air of mystery that was thrown into this story along with the well developed characters that I'm accustomed to. This is definitely my favorite book in the Lonesome Point series and I can't wait for the kids of Lonesome Point to get their own books beginning later this year!

A Review of Ropes and Revenge (Lonesome Point, Book 6) by Jessie Evans Can a broken heart be open to new love? 5++++++ stars I have been looking forward to John's book ever since Cole's story. It helped to tie up those pesky loose ends that were still hanging around and it let's us all know that the heart always has more room for love. I have an Uncle that passed over 30 years ago, but to this day, his wife, my Aunt, has never looked at another man and to me that is so beautiful, but sad at the same time. This story reminded me of an old saying (or poem) that I heard a long time ago. People come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime and love is blind, but friendship is clairvoyant. It was an pleasure to 'meet' Lily in Cole's story and a deep honor to see how much John loved her. I don't want to spoil the story for anyone, but you will definitely want to have a box of tissues with you when you read this. And believe me, you will WANT to read this one slowly so you can savor it. I am certainly looking forward to Clem's book and finding out what was in that box that she had to wait 15 years for. Something tells me we aren't done with all the secrets of Lonesome Point, and that's just fine with me. Jessie can keep writing them and I will gladly keep reading them. Favorite quote " Thanks to Percy, he understood that when it came to love, there was always room in the heart." **Complimentary Copy provided by Author for an honest review.**

I love my Lonesome Point cowboys, especially the Lawson men. John is the eldest of the Lawson men. The strong, loving, reliable, brother, son and husband. He was happily married to Lily, together raising their two sons and taking care of the Lawson family ranch. Then tragedy took Lily away from John in a so called accident. John not believing Lily's death was an accident spent everyday since her death, 7 months ago, trying to find evidence that the love of his life was murdered, always coming up with nothing. However deep down in his gut he knew he was right and wouldn't stop until he could prove it.  Persephone "Percy," the world traveling ghost whisperer, is the last person John expects will help him prove his suspecions and the last person he ever expected to fall in love with. Percy has spent her life, since the age of seven, helping lost souls find their way to the other side. So consumed with the dead, Percy feels stuck and lost in the world she is living in. While visiting Lonesome Point to study the old ghost town's activities, she is drawn to the Lawson Ranch and widower John. Along with her desire to help John find out what happened to his wife, Percy also begins to feel alive and wanting a life with John. John also feels an instant connection with Percy, but his love for Lily prevents him from totally giving himself to her. The longer John and Percy spend time together, the more information they gather to finding who caused Lily's death, and the stronger their connection grows.  Can John love two woman at the same time? Will Percy finally get her happily ever after and find a place she can call home? Will Lily's murderers be brought to justice? I LOVED John and Percy's story! This one was so different from the other Lonesome Point stories in a very good way. Jessie Evans brought endless upon endless mystery, love, grief, and hope in Ropes and Revenge. In the end, we are left with this burning question, "What is in that box?"

In Chaps and Chance, Lonesome Point #5, John Lawson lost his wife. It was ruled an accident, but John is convinced foul play was involved. Now in Rope and Revenge John is just going through the motions of life and fatherhood 7 months later and he is still struggling to find any evidence to support his belief that his wife was murdered. Persephone a/k/a Percy, a ghost whisperer, makes her way to Lonesome Point after a dream she has about a man even though she doesn’t even know his name or what he looks like. Soon after she is gone he regrets the way he treated her. These two are drawn to each other, but John feels guilty. Can these two work together to uncover what happened to John’s wife, can these two find a way to be together? This is probably my favorite of the Lonesome Point series, it is emotional and exhilarating all at the same time. I loved how Jessie Evans unfolded this story for John!

I can't say enough about this series! When I heard this might be the last in the Lonesome Point series my disappointment knew no bounds. When I started John's story I wanted to read it slowly to savor it as long as I could but I should have known that would not happen. I LOVE this series and this installment is my new favourite! I say that for each book but it's always true. I don't know what words I have not said already to describe the the previous books but I have to find them for another great read. John's heartache became mine as his grief and need to make things right for him and his boys knew no limits. Percy is such a quirky, likable character that you could see why John was so torn. His wife had been gone for less than a year and his conflict was clear but love is love is love. United in their need to find answers, their attraction to each other was clear though John clearly struggled with his feelings. Cowboys and ghost hunters make an unbeatable combination in this entertaining story which has immediately gone on the reread shelf. I hope there will be more. There has to be more.

The Lonesome Point, TX series is one of my favorites. Jessie Evans knows how to write a sexy cowboy! Her writing gets better with every book and Ropes and Revenge has the most heart of the series, and the most suspense. John lost his wife, Lily, seven months ago in a tragic accident. Well, John doesn’t think it was an accident and he's been trying to prove it. Persephone is a psychic and she comes to Lonesome Point, a well-known haunted place, to help restless spirits cross over to the other side. When John meets her he's mad that she's on his land and he's rude to her. He's also attracted to her and that scares him. John gets a chance to apologize to Percy, and something sparks between them. She vows to help him find out who killed Lily. They form a fast friendship and Percy realizes that she wants him. John is dealing with the loss of his wife and finding her killer and now with the guilt of having feelings for Percy. Things heat up between John and Percy while they search for evidence of the killer. John wants to keep her safe and she instantly becomes one of the family. She's different than any woman he's ever known. Different than his late wife and he doesn’t know what to do with his feelings. Will John let himself find love again before it's too late? Will Percy be able to find the killer and help John move forward? Percy is smart and funny and John is sexy and serious. They complement each other perfectly! John learns to let laughter into his life again and Percy realizes that she's not her past. This is the ultimate second chance at love story. It's possible to find love twice in a lifetime and even if it's scary, you have to make the jump!! This was the perfect way to close out the series. There are some surprises in store for other residents of Lonesome Point and I can't wait to find out what they are! She tasted like mercy and forgetfulness, and for the first time in forever, John found himself completely lost in a moment. "Because I don’t want anyone to hear the hungry sounds you make when we're kissing except me." Percy's breath rushed out. "I make sounds?" "Sexy little whimpers and moans," John continued in that rough whisper that threatened to undo her. "Never," John said. "I like your naughty side. And your sweet side. And the side that bosses me around when I'm being an short-sighted a**hole."

I'm sad to see this generation in Lonesome Point end. I've loved this series so much and this story didn't disappoint. Emotions are strong in this one with John moving on after losing his wife or at least he is trying to. He's having a hard time because he believes his wife was murdered, but there is no evidence to prove it. In comes Percy who can communicate with ghosts and she wants to do everything she can to help John and his sons the closure they need. The closer they get to the truth more dangerous it gets with the culprits on the lose. Can they solve the mystery before someone else losses their life? I was pretty surprised with who was behind it, didn't see it coming. I loved Percy for what she has endured to still have that sweet heart of hers. I loved the bonding she had with John's son, so sweet. I loved how the epilogue set up for the next generation and super excited to see who has the first book. Also I have to mention I love the yummy cover!!

Excellent story! After the horrific loss of his wife, John Lawson is floating through life. With two young sons depending on him he really needs to get it together. He couldn't, however, give up on the gut feeling that Lily's death wasn't an accident or his deep need for justice. When that mysterious ghost whisperer Percy Styles comes to town he is skeptical but when she begins uncovering clues that could help him prove Lily's murder he begins spending more and more time with her. As need sparks to life, he is not sure he is ready to move on just yet and has to fight those inner demons. This is a fantastic read and I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

mm John.... I just wanna give John a big hug.  after the tragic death of his wife, can he find a second chance at love?  Percy, the ghost whisper or spooky (love that nickname) a great personable character that just needs a place to belong.  I really enjoyed getting to know both these characters and seeing the other characters from before.  the plot keeps you turning the page, waiting for what happens next.  I love Jessie Evans books.  I cannot put them down once started

John Lawson is a broken man. Having lost the love of his life, he's having a hard time putting the pieces of his life back together. Although Lonesome Point law enforcement has ruled Lily's death an accident, John is sure that there is more to the story, and lives for the moments that he meets Lily in the in-between, the space between waking and sleeping. Persephone 'Percy' Styles has a gift. Able to communicate with the spirit world, and having spent all of her time with those no longer here, she's ready to focus on the living, and to bring comfort to a man she doesn't even know. After encountering a psychic exchange between John and Lily, Percy feels called to visit Lonesome Point and to help John heal, and Lily to pass over to the next world. The Lonesome Point, TX, series by Jessie Evans has been a favorite of mine since the first book. Small-town life, quirky and loveable characters, mystery and intrigue, and, oh, yes, absolutely swoony cowboys and the ladies that are lucky enough to capture their hearts, make for a winning combination at every level. I have loved each and every book in this series, but the Lawson brothers hold a special place in my heart. Loving, loyal, and completely committed to family, these three men are truly something. John, the eldest, is the rock of the family, the man that had stepped in when his father died, who has always been there for his mother and brothers, and who had found happiness with his true love only to have it ripped away. Losing Lily has thrown him into a tailspin, and the feeling that her death was no accident has kept him from being able to move on. When Percy shows up, he wants nothing to do with her particular brand of 'help,' figuring her for a nutcase, and pushes her away. "I understand that's not part of your belief system," she said. "And I can respect that, but I have reason to believe there are spirits here who need my help and I'd like to stay until they feel safe enough to make contact." "Safe enough to make contact," he echoed, his next breath emerging with a huff. "What are they going to do, come whisper in your ear?" "Something like that," she said, lifting her chin. Percy quickly shows that she is what she says, and John, eager for answers, and intrigued by Percy and her gifts, finds himself working with her to unravel the mystery of Lily's death. This wouldn't be a Jessie Evans book without a sweet, sexy, and heart-melting romance, and she does not disappoint. Almost from the beginning, John finds himself drawn to Percy, not only as someone to help him in his quest, but as a woman. She is unlike no one he's known before, but his guilt over being attracted to her is a major stumbling block. Percy, for her part, has never felt the way she does about John for anyone else, and is determined to show him that his place is in the here and now, with her. "...You deserve better than a man who doesn't know if he'll ever be able to love someone else again." "Maybe I don't want better...And I know I don't want to leave. I want to stay until you get your answers." "I care about you, Percy," he said, his chest aching as his heart stretched in two different directions. "I don't want to see you hurt, and I especially don't want to be the one doing the hurting." "If you ask me to leave again, you will hurt me," she said. "I need to see this through. Not just for you, but for me too. I need to see where this goes. Not just the investigation, but this. Us." Ropes and Revenge is the last book in the Lonesome Point series, and, although I am sad to see this series end, I am completely satisfied with the way that everything is wrapped up. I'm excited to be able to say that I will get to revisit the characters and place that I have come to love, as Jessie will be writing an off-shoot series based on the children of Lonesome Point. What could be better than a whole new generation of people to love? As ever, 5+ 'happily ever after, what a fantastic story' stars for Jessie Evans and Lonesome Point, TX.
