Overview

How will Audrey and her fellow schoolmarms stay afloat when a flood threatens their small Texas town?

Typically, Thunder Ridge, Texas, is dry as a bone. But Audrey Pride has arrived under a storm cloud, one that is deluging the shocked community with weeks of relentless, drenching rain. With travel in and out of town rendered impossible, there is much important work for her to do—especially when an epidemic of violent illness, originating from a stranded wagon train, spreads rapidly throughout Thunder Ridge. Caring for the sick is consuming Audrey's every waking hour...yet her thoughts keep returning to the attractive widower Eli Gray.

Eli has long been haunted by the fact that he was away at war when his beloved wife died in childbirth. Little by little, however, he is opening his heart again. Now, as their town sags under the crushing weight of water and disease, Audrey and Eli will need to depend on each other in ways they never imagined possible.

I am looking forward to the third book in the series One True Love with much anticipation.This book contains a love story that is tragic and common in the old west, but still just as beautiful. The particular book in the series contains a lot of death and sadness. But it also contains hope and blessings. Through the good occurrences and the bad, the characters are able to find their strong suit in the Lord and to continue on. I agree with some that the death did start to get a bit heavy, but in the end it is a great book and just shows more of the good writing from Lori Copeland.*Thanks to AvonInspire for providing a copy for review.*

This is the second in a trilogy and well worth the read. The first was actually funnier, but both good enough that you look forward to the next one. My only complaint, who wants to wait until 2010 to read the final one? I think there should be some type of understanding that parts of trilogies are to be released no later than at three month intervals. I appreciate those authors that are able to publish a trilogy back to back for three months, like Susan Mallery. The characters stay fresh in your mind and it's a more enjoyable experience...

I loved the cover of this book and thought it went very well with the story line. You can read this as a stand alone book, but I highly recommend you read this series in order as they all 3 really tie in together and you won't feel like you are missing out on anything.If you liked the way book one began and the way Willow rode into town, then get ready for another grand entrance into Thunder Ridge, Texas by Audrey Pride! Audrey and Copper are moving to Thunder Ridge to be with their good friend Willow and supposedly they both have teaching positions in nearby towns. Thunder Ridge is a town where it never rains, so when Audry and Copper arrive and it starts raining the town is at first thrilled. But the deluge doesn't seem to end, a wagon train is stuck outside their town in the mud and they have an epidemic on their hands. Audrey finds herself helping with the sick, caring for the dead (she gets a job at the morgue because her teaching position falls through) and trying to find a way to let Eli Gray know that she is the girl for him. But Eli has lost his beloved wife in childbirth while he was away at war and isn't ready to open his heart to another. But with all the town is going through, Eli and Audrey find themselves depending upon each other and needing each other.This book was not as lighthearted as book one, but did have some humor in it. There was alot of sadness going on in the story and alot of rain. At times I would put down my book and forget the sun was shining outside because when reading this story you are living with rain, rain and more rain and Lori Copeland did a good job of making you feel wet and miserable at times. I enjoyed the story and I am going to read book 3 next, which picks up where book 2 left off. A very good series with lighthearted laughter, tender romance, warm friendships and some heated debate by 2 people who you know are going to turn the dislike into love (at least I hope so! I will find out in book 3!).

The humor and love continue in this second book in the Belles of Timber Creek Series. The interchanges between characters is delightful. I highly recommend this entire series.
