She's about to lose her home. He never wanted to see his again. And a stalker is staking a claim . . .

Mary Smith was never one to back down from a challenge. Her father's health may be failing, but their dairy farm was her mother's dream, and Mary will do whatever it takes to keep her father from selling it-even if it means sneaking off to the next town to earn money by playing the piano in a questionable establishment. No one seems to understand why home is so important to her, least of all her childhood nemesis who's just wandered back into town.

When injured Texas Ranger Luke Thomas is forced to return to Pine Creek, Washington, he's hailed as a hero and thrust into the town's first race for sheriff. But no one knows the secret he carried to Texas, nor the secret he's brought home. Setting his perfect aim on returning south, he refuses to get tied down by the town's admiration, his brother's disapproval, or the spirited, hardworking dairy girl who's less annoying than he remembers.

But strange things are happening at the Smith dairy and in Pine Creek, and Luke's instincts tell him Mary is in far more trouble than she realizes. One thing is certain: "home" is about to get more complicated for them both.

First off, one person reviewed this book as enjoying the sex scene in the story. There are no sex scenes in this very clean book. I was so upset with the reviewer for such slander of a wonderful book. That reviewer must have read a different book and entered their review in the wrong place. I apologize to Sondra Kraak on behalf of that one reviewer. Now then, on to my review. As I stated above, this is a wonderful book. Full of banter between the main characters, Luke and Mary. Some suspense and mystery. The mystery from the first book on why Luke left Pine Creek is finally cleared up. I like that the main characters in the first book, One Plus On Equals Trouble, were in this book too, along with a couple other characters. I know you will enjoy this completely clean novel by a terrific author if clean, Christian, historical romance with suspense is what you like to read. Take a chance and read this. It won't let you down. Enjoy!

Letting go is hard, but sometimes you have to let your dreams go in order to gain something better! Luke & Mary learn that lesson in ways they never imagined. Luke’s dream has always been to be a Texas Ranger, and he was for a while until an injury side-lined him for a time. Mary’s was keeping her mom’s dream of running the family’s dairy farm alive, even though her dad’s declining health makes it impossible! Will these two allow God to place a new dream in their hearts? A great moral lesson in a story! I enjoyed the witty banter between these two characters, the historical setting, secondary characters and the authors talent for weaving a great story. However, at times for me, the story seemed to drag on and I wasn’t able to connect with the hero or heroine as closely as I liked. But that in no way deterred my enjoyment of the lesson this author teaches! I enjoyed seeing faith seep through, the characters grow in that faith & allowing God to rule & reign in their lives. All in all, an enjoyable story! *I received a complimentary copy from the author in exchange for my honest review which I have given here. Thank you Sondra for a wonderful story of letting God’s dreams take precedence in our lives! *
