ANYTHING FOR HER CHILD
After someone attempts to abduct her daughter, single mom Zoe Collier flees to a remote ranch for safety. But when the would-be kidnappers follow them to Wrangler's Corner, Zoe must figure out why somebody wants Sophia.
Local vet Aaron Starke is determined to help Zoe investigate—and to keep his intriguing new neighbors safe. Zoe's used to relying on her own wits to survive. But quick-witted, caring Aaron is just the type of man she needs in her corner.
And he might be her partner for keeps…if they can find the truth without losing their lives.
Wrangler's Corner: Family comes first
Fast paced action through the story kept me glued into the book, the tension, danger, and threat never let up, the pieces of the puzzle are revealed through the tale, as the story unfolds, the reality of the terror sets in, and lives are in peril.
This is one of those stories, that you get so submerged in it, you lose the sense of time. The action is constant, the fear is palpable, and clues to solve the mystery of the attackers are rare.
I liked the tone of the story, how it unfolds so smoothly, flowing nicely through the pages. The characters are easy to relate to, they are honest, reliable, caring, and protective. They also had more depth to them than I first expected, hidden layers of hurt and life lessons, that had molded them to be the people they are today.
I liked how the whole small town rallied around to protect Zoe and Sophia, even though they were new in town.
Aaron is such a solid, down to earth person. He is open and honest about his feelings, he isn't shy about his intentions, he listens, is supportive, and doesn't judge. Together with Zoe, and Sophia, the three already seem to make a solid unit, a family of sort, even before any commitment is made.
Zoe has been struggling with her faith, her life has been hard, and she is angry with God, for losing so many loved ones around her. As the danger intensifies, she has to open her heart and mind, and see that God hasn't abandoned her, but has walked with her, every step of the way.
I loved the author's style to keep the story going, the trouble at the door, while in a natural and fitting way, gave the readers a beautiful story of love, redemption, and faith, including humor, life lessons, and small town living.
