In 1877, hoping to make a new start, McKenna Ashford accepts her cousin’s invitation and migrates with her rebellious younger brother to Copper Creek, Colorado. She has always tried to be the parent Robert needs, but his conceit and nose for trouble cause much heartache. An untimely “inheritance” challenges McKenna’s resolve at every turn, and she feels browbeaten and weary as she struggles to make their situation improve. A glimmer of hope appears in U.S. Marshal Wyatt Caradon, who dedicates his life to bringing fugitives to justice. When he meets the Ashfords, Wyatt knows he must do everything he can to help Robert, and show McKenna what love is all about.
Alexander has once again successfully created a story with several charming characters, lively dialogue, and a delightful end. It will pull you in from the start and keep you engrossed as you learn how McKenna overcomes adversity and learns to trust and love again.
