You won't want to set this book down until you reach the final resolution. It has multiple love stories layered beautifully and passionately. Book one in the Heart of the West series takes readers on a
cattle drive through the mountainous countryside of Colorado and to places where feelings run deeper than the valleys. It leaves you waiting and wanting book two.

Aunt Kate is a bigger-than-life character who owns the Aspengold cattle ranch in 1892 Colorado. The ranch is the only home Crystal Clark has after leaving Georgia, where she was raised to be a proper southern belle. She learns to adjust to living in the wild land, and the cowboys become her second family. Crystal has to make tough choices in order to find her life's purpose. She wants to fully receive her aunt Kate's spiritual wisdom and needs God's grace to help her. (REVELL, Jan., 294 pp., $13.99)
