Karen Leabo continues her Brides of Destiny series with LANA'S LAWMAN (3). A sadder but wiser former high school belle learns to stand on her own two feet after a divorce and gets a second chance to build a relationship with her first lover, a town "bad boy" turned policeman. Ms. Leabo skillfully overcomes an initial lack of empathy for the heroine with sensitive and balanced characterization that ultimately wins the reader over.
