Publisher's Summary

Is Jason Jordan really who he says he is?
Everything in Nicki's life depends on the answer...

Oregon, 1887
When her husband dies in a mysterious riding accident, Nicki Trent is left with a toddler and a rundown ranch. Determined to bring her ranch back from the brink of death, Nicki hires handsome Jason Jordan to help. But when William, her neighbor, starts pressing for her hand in marriage, the bank calls in a loan she didn't even know about, bullets start flying, and a burlap dummy with a knife in its chest shows up on her doorstep… Nicki wonders if this ranch is worth all the trouble.
To make matters worse, terrible things keep happening to her neighbors. When her friend's homestead is burned to the ground and William lays the blame at Jason's feet, Nicki wonders how well she knows her new hand - and her own heart.
A desperate need. Malicious adversaries. Enticing love. Step into a day when outlaws ran free, the land was wild, and guns blazed at the drop of a hat.

Would you consider the audio edition of High Desert Haven to be better than the print version?

Only have the audiobook, to listen to while driving to work. It's
very easy to follow along, and descriptive, yet not overly descriptive
were you loose sight of the story.

What other book might you compare High Desert Haven to and why?

Lynnette Bonner's other books in this series are very similar

What about Anne Johnstonbrown’s performance did you like?

The narrator was entertaining and added a flare to the characters, which made it even
more enjoyable, and even easier to follow along

Who was the most memorable character of High Desert Haven and why?

All the characters seem to add to the story, of coarse the main characters were
inspiring and delightful, I also enjoyed the transition of Jason from her first book, Rocky Mountain Oasis, to this book.

Any additional comments?

Even though this is a religious inspired book, it is very realistic in how it is used in the story. Religion in this book is not overly dramatized, and is very well incorporated with the story, when you read or listen to the story it is very easy to understand what I mean.

Reader ruined the story for me

I really would have enjoyed the book but the reader over enunciated her word so much it sounded like a robot was reading. I want to finish out the series but will get the books to read on my own.
