Grace Bradley wishes all she touches would turn to gold. Instead, it tends to tarnish...that is, until she finds freedom on the Double K Ranch. Grace is fleeing from the man her father chose to be her husband. But once her heart is captured by her new employer's best friend, and she finally understands the meaning of God's sacrificial love, she relinquishes her independence to save her loved ones.

Cade Ramsey contemplates running for dear life from the accident-prone nuisance he brought to his hometown. The trouble that trails her seems to latch on to him at every turn. But when Grace manages to win his calloused heart, he chases her down, praying he can keep her from following through on a decision that could ruin their lives.

An adventurous novel of faith, hope, and love in the Wild West.

WHEN LOVE GETS IN THE WAY has some really cute moments. Grace is feisty, willing to get her way by hiding in the back of a wagon piled full of lumber. Unfortunately she was discovered too soon. A shooting match by a mysterious horseback rider and plenty of other disasters follow in Grace's wake, making this unpredictable.A western with a runaway bride, bucking at expectations. The story is slow, the characters lack depth and seem to rely on the mishaps to keep the story flowing.

In 1873 in Pueblo, Colorado Territory, following her mother's funeral Grace Bradley runs away from home as she fears the vile man Frank Easton, whose first wife vanished, the one her widower father chose for her to marry. She pleads with family friend Cade Ramsey, who attended her mom's funeral, to take her with him when he goes home. Grace insists she can help his mom Ella recovering from an injured hip. He tells her no. She sneaks inside his wagon, but by the time he discovers his stowaway he ignores his inclination to return her to her dad and instead takes her to his family Ranch near Rockdale. He arranges for her to work as a housekeeper at the ranch of his friends Bobby and Jace (see When All My Dreams Come True). Meanwhile a gang of four keeps robbing prospectors in the area while Grace's "fiancé" is coming for her. The amusing charming second "Colorado Runaway" western romance stars two delightful protagonists as he needs full body armor to protect him from his klutzy beloved. The villains are nasty but the warm Grace makes the tale work as a unique lead. First is her love for Cade and his family and friends; second are her demands of God to explain why he allows bad things to happen to good people; and finally the comic relief of all the bruises Cade receives from his dangerous beloved. Sub-genre fans will obtain immense pleasure with this humorous historical. Harriet Klausner
