About the Author

Jaclyn M. Hawkes is the Amazon bestselling author of ten published novels. She grew up with 6 sisters, 4 brothers and any number of pets. (It was never boring!) She got a bachelor's degree, had a career and traveled extensively before settling down to her life's work of being the mother of four magnificent and sometimes challenging children. She loves shellfish, the out of doors, the youth, and hearing her children laugh. She and her husband, their family, and their sometimes very large pets, now live in a mountain valley in northern Utah, where it smells like heaven and kids still move sprinkler pipe.

Charlie Evans was a good girl. She avoided her mother and father as much as possible because her plan for her future didn¿t match theirs by far more than a county mile. Her best friend since forever, ¿Fo¿ Forest Eldridge, was in her corner, even had a plan for helping her avoid going back East for summer vacation. If Charlie joins him working on his uncle¿s ranch in Montana. She couldn¿t buck bales but she could ride herd over the younger kids. She was fine with that, being a natural Mom at heart ¿ even if her parents were sure she would marry Elroy the divorce lawyer when she finished at BYU Law School which she didn¿t want to go to any more than she wanted to marry Elroy.But Fo¿s cousin Luke had her wish she could stay in Montana ranch country and especially on the Langston family ranch where she could talk with him daily. He was committed to Lindie, the girl his older brother got pregnant; because that¿s what Luke did, he fixed things for everyone. No one seemed to want to fix things for Luke, though.Charlie meets up with an ornery cowboy, Lindie doesn¿t want to get married, Charlie¿s parents show up with Elroy in tow and Wilbur learns to escape! What more could you ask for in an absolutely splendid story of Christianity and love?

4 STARS I liked the plot of this story. The humor was funny. The characters were likeable and still had faults and good points. Charlie goes with her best friend Fo to work at his family ranch in Montana instead of going home after she graduates from collage and standing up for what she wants against her parents. Fo's relatives are surprised when his best friend since he was young is actually a girl. Charlie wants to be a teacher someday. She is smart, talented, strong except when facing her parents. They want her to be a lawyer and have picked out her future husband Elroy. She is single and does not plan to marry a divorce lawyer her parents have chosen for her. Luke is running his family ranch helping his father. He is surprised to find Charlie is a girl. He has to figure out where he can put her. He really says they need help with the children. Luke is engaged to be married. Jamie is 2 years old and cute sounding little boy. Evie and Elsa are four and five years old Tuckett is 14 years old Chase is the oldest. He works out a lot and chases the girls. He does as little as he can. Chase and Luke's mother died. Tuckett's mother left his father when he was only 6. Richard's third marriage is not happy. Charlie is strong and makes a difference with everyone. Stepping into help with the little ones. Just like Luke asked for help. If only she can stand up to her parents. These characters have real problems that a lot of people are facing. Dealing with moral problems, stalkers, teens smoking, unwed pregnancy. I like reading Jaclyn M. Hawkes books and will continue reading them.
