"Lone Heart Pass" Book Tour

Where family bonds are made and broken, and where young love sparks as old flames grow dim, Ransom Canyon is ready to welcome—and shelter—those who need it 

With a career and a relationship in ruins, Jubilee Hamilton is left reeling from a fast fall to the bottom. The run-down Texas farm she's inherited is a far cry from the second chance she hoped for, but it and the abrasive foreman she's forced to hire are all she's got. 

Every time Charley Collins has let a woman get close, he's been burned. So Lone Heart ranch and the contrary woman who owns it are merely a means to an end, until Jubilee tempts him to take another risk—to stop resisting the attraction drawing them together despite all his hard-learned logic. 

Desperation is all young Thatcher Jones knows. And when he finds himself mixed up in a murder investigation, his only protection is the shelter of a man and woman who—just like him—need someone to trust.

The story seized my attention on the first page and drew me right into the story. It was a page turner for sure. I found it difficult to put down and read into the wee small hours, way past my bedtime!

I loved the way the romance slowly began to grow, trust, friends and then the budding romance progressed slowly throughout the story.

Not only was there light romance, but there was a mystery intertwined throughout the story. It also had a bit of comic relief scattered here and there. It was just a wonderful all-around feel good story, just the way I like my stories.  I really, really liked this book and I decided it deserves 5 "Lone Heart" stars.
