Have you ever had a dilemma? I’m guessing you have. One of mine came when the crew at the fabulous Love Inspired publishing house sent me four books and asked me to review one. They all looked so good. How was I ever going to choose? Well, it came down to this: I had just finished reading a romantic suspense and was in the mood for a change so that cut my options in half. Then I flipped a coin. Yeah, yeah, I know. I’m a decision maker like that.
Here is the information on all four books (click on any image to order). Let me know which one you would have chosen and why then hang around for my review of The Rancher’s Secret Child.
The Wedding Quilt Bride
by Marta Perry
Widowed single mom
Rebecca Mast returns to her Amish community hoping to open a quilt shop. She accepts carpenter Daniel King’s offer of assistance—but she isn’t prepared for the bond he forms with her son. Will getting closer expose her secret—or reveal the love she has in her heart for her long-ago friend?
The Rancher’s Secret Child
by Brenda Minton
Marcus Palermo’s simple life gets complicated when he meets the son he never knew he had—and his beautiful guardian. Lissa Hart thought she’d only stick around long enough to aid Marcus in becoming a dad—but could her happily-ever-after lie with the little boy and the rugged rancher?
Bound by Duty
by Valerie Hansen
When Sgt. Linc Colson is assigned to monitor Zoe Sullivan and determine if she’s secretly aiding her fugitive serial killer brother, his instincts tell him she’s not in league with the criminal—she’s in danger. It’s up to him and his K-9 partner, Star, to keep the pretty single mom alive.
by Laura Scott
Framed for the murder of his
ex-girlfriend—and then attacked at the crime scene—fire investigator Mitch Callahan turns to ER nurse Dana Petrie for help. As they fight for their lives, can she be convinced of his innocence—and in his promise of love?
In My Opinion…
If ever a man needed to let go of his past, it’s Marcus Palmero. Haunted by his upbringing and ashamed of some of his past choices, Marcus is content to live out his life on his ranch.
Marcus is a good guy who cares for his community and family, but his fear of turning out like his father has him paralyzed from reaching for his own happiness. So, when a woman shows up at his property with a little boy she claims is his son, Marcus is ready to send them back to San Antonio.
As Marcus fights his feelings for Lissa, believing he’s not worthy of her she has her own demons from her past to fight. And of course, the residents of Bluebonnet Springs all have (and share) their opinions about Marcus, Lissa, and little Oliver.
I wanted to hug Marcus at times while at others I was ready to shake some sense into him. Brenda Minton’s characterization is spot on. A story of healing, family, and love, The Rancher’s Secret Child offers hope when all seems hopeless, of the strength and encouragement of family, and of reaching for new dreams even when it scares you.
