Cattle rustling. Guns. Murder.
Kendra Williams has been the sole caretaker of her four younger siblings since their parents were killed in an alcohol-related airplane crash when she was only twenty years old. She has worked her entire adult life, sacrificing her dreams and her chance at love, to keep her family together and to keep their family cattle ranch safe for future generations.
Michelle Loving has made a successful career out of telling the American public what to think and what they should care about. She is hired to create an image of historical significance for the century-old cattle ranch,but finds herself in over her head. Not only is someone gunning for the ranch, but when it comes to loving the rustic, controlling, beautiful woman in charge of the Heartland, Michelle is shooting in the dark.
I enjoyed the book but not quite as much as I thought I would.
The plot was a little far-fetched, I thought. I found it difficult to believe that the government would award the licence for the land to the man who made the accusations of impropriety without at least allowing the current holders to answer the ‘charges’. But then I don’t know a great deal about it so maybe they are that corrupt, and I do the author a disservice.
The refusal of the two women to admit they loved each other also became annoying but in general I enjoyed the characters.
It was also somewhat darker than I thought with the bodies piling up, but the views of ranch life were good.
