Author: CJ Carmichael
Published: October 28/14 by Tule Publishing
Genre: contemporary western romance
Back Cover Blurb:
Then she and her sisters find their mother’s diaries, hidden from them by their father since their mother’s accidental death 18 years ago, and the shocking revelations explain a lot. Reeling, Callan seeks refuge in the local saloon, where it seems no one can reach her, until Court offers her a challenge.
If she agrees to be foreman at the Circle C for one year, he’ll deed the ranch back to her and her sisters. The deal seems too sweet at first—until Callan realizes Court has his eyes on something she protects even more than her family’s land—her heart.
Getting to know these characters definitely added to my enjoyment of the novel. The main characters were fantastic individuals separately and explosive together. Carmichael makes sure that we get to know them in a very real way. We find out some little tidbits about them, and some big, explosive events that have shaped who they are. The supporting cast was brilliant as well. Assuming that you’ve read previous Carrigans of Circle C novels you’ve met the sisters and their significant others before, but even if you haven’t, Carmichael lets us get to know them in a way that this can just as easily be read as a standalone as part of the series.
I definitely found myself thoroughly enjoying this novel through and through.
