Overview

Janelle Mowery (When All My Dreams Come True and When Love Gets in the Way) concludes her popular Colorado Runaway series with another adventurous story of faith, hope, and love in the Wild West.

Rachel Garrett finds that attaining her dream of becoming a nurse is fraught with peril. A deputy sheriff with a wall around his heart doesn't help matters, but when she learns why Luke Mason has barricaded his heart, her desire to heal confronts an even greater challenge. Her need of his protection from an unknown assailant might be the force that sends his wall crashing down around them.

Luke became a deputy in order to find the men who killed his father. He turns his back on God, only to run into the fiery Miss Garrett, who is a constant reminder of his lost faith. As Luke hunts for Rachel's attacker, he finds she has snared his heart. Faced with the fear of losing another loved one, he must decide whether he can learn to rely on God to save her—or run from the love both offer.

Rachel Garrett knows that relocating to Colorado in the late 1800s is going to be difficult. She doesn't know anyone there and the territory is quite a change of pace from her life back in Missouri. She knows that you can't really run away from problems, but she needed a change of scenery after being blamed for the death of a patient. She's barely had a chance to catch her breath from the ride into Rockdale and meet her new boss, Dr. Barnes, when she's enlisted to help in several home emergencies, including a home delivery and a sprained ankle. But disaster strikes on her third home visit when she finds a pregnant woman bleeding and near death. Regrettably the woman, after suffering her fourth miscarriage, dies shortly after Rachel arrives at the house. Rachel feels bad about the woman's death but knows that there was nothing she could do to stop it. As Rachel settles into Rockland, she focuses on her job, finds a new church family, and begins to learn her new neighbors. As she begins to feel comfortable with her new life and work, she also helps Dr. and Mrs. Barnes with their two small children, as well as start a small Sunday School program for the kids at the church. Through all of her ups and downs in life Rachel turns to her faith to sustain her and prays that it will be all she needs in order to survive.Luke Mason is a good deputy sheriff but he no longer attends church or believes in God. His mother is the church pianist and prays that Luke will return to the faith of his youth. As Luke tries to maintain law and order in his town, he witnesses the strength of Rachel's faith and finds it attractive, especially when it appears that her life may be endangered. Just when it seems like he knows who the culprit is, tragedy strikes. Can Luke survive losing someone else that he's grown attached to or will he be able to save Rachel from harm?When Two Hearts Meet is a nice and fast-paced inspirational, historical romance. The characters are well developed and the action somewhat expected for a Western romance but realistic. The intrigue is primarily what kept my attention throughout as it appeared that Rachel might have numerous enemies and as soon as one was cornered, another would appear. Both Rachel and Luke gain lessons of faith, hope and love as their friendship slowly turns to romance. There aren't any steamy scenes, but Ms. Mowery has done an excellent job of providing a hopeful, happy-ever-after, inspirational romance.

Another great book in the series. Very action-packed. Sometimes it seems a little believable, but it was fun reading overall.

In 1874, Rachel Garrett arrives in the Colorado Territory from Missouri to work as a nurse assisting Dr. Jim Barnes. She opens her heart to the residents of Rockdale while remaining faithful to the Lord's guidance. Rachel is attracted to deputy sheriff Luke Mason. But his heart is buried inside tundra and his soul detests the harsh God who allowed his hero, his law enforcement dad, to die on the job. Rachel becomes the victim of a series of dangerous assaults by an unknown assailant. Luke vows to keep the feisty believer safe. However, he is not there when a gang kidnaps her so she can keep the leader's son from dying. Although he has fallen in love with her, Luke, panicking over Rachel's safety, still vows to keep his heart safe from the loss of another loved one and his angry soul from God. The third Colorado Runaway inspirational western romance (see When All My Dreams Come True and When Love Gets in the Way) is a terrific tale of a love between a true believer and a person who turned his back on the Lord. The story line is fast-paced from the moment Rachel arrives in town and never slows down as she lands in one predicament after another but never loses her faith. Although the religious messages are much more in the face of the reader lacking the subtly of the previous entries, fans of inspirational historical tales will enjoy caring Rachel finding love in the Colorado territory but fears the lawman who owns her heart is not suitable as he scorns God.
