Publisher's Summary

In the early hours of the morning, Careen becomes Matthew Grayson's wife--and then, in a blink of an eye, his widow. How can she tell the family she’s never met that her own cousin is responsible for their son’s death? While she waits for the right moment to admit the cousin's guilt, a budding attraction grows between Careen and her new brother-in-law, Joshua. But this will only complicate matters, especially when the truth finally comes out.
Joshua Grayson could never understand why his brother left the family ranch to wed--in secret--a woman he'd never met. And now Matthew is dead. Killed just moments after taking his wedding vows. Joshua struggles with both resentment and a growing attraction for his mysterious sister-in-law. He knows Careen is hiding something, but can he give love another chance, or is he just setting up his heart for another break?

Great Western Historical Romance - More Please :-)

On her wedding day, mail-order bride and Matthew Grayson leave the church and step outside. There's a drunken brawl going on down the street and soon gunshots fired. Careen looks down at her husband, who is still holding her hands but is obviously dead.

Instead of going on a honeymoon she must arrange to take her husband's body to his family. After that, she is not sure what she'll do because she has no desire to go back to her family which consists of an elderly aunt and a weird cousin.

Once she reaches the Grayson estate she sees the family who loves one another very much, they're very close knit and caring.

After a few days she starts noticing Josh, her husband's brother, and begins to have feelings toward him. However, the proper time for morning for her deceased husband is one year. Josh has twin daughters and a secret about his first wife… Will he return her feelings? Who is trying to track Careen down and why?

What may seem to be a traditional Western, historical romance is much, much more. There are twists and turns that you do not see coming. Everything is up in the air until the very last chapter. It closes with a wild revelation.

A fantastic book by Marie Higgins… I hope that this series will become available on audio as this book is THAT GOOD. There are several characters who could spin off into books of their own.

Leonor A. Woodworth was great and I enjoyed her Midwest accent. It was not difficult to decipher between characters – male or female. She also performed the role of children (which can be really annoying) realistically and without flaw.

*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my review written above. I have no qualms recommending this book to anyone who loves historical, Western romances. I did not realize it was classified as a Religious & Inspirational, but the mentions of faith, hymns and prayers throughout make sense!

Had Some Potential...

I felt this book had potential, but the religious aspect was forced into the story and didn't belong in many parts where it appeared. I didn't appreciate the fact that our main character, Careen has had it pretty rough for the past several years but now she's willing to 'trust in God, because God protects the Graysons' It just seemed contrived to me and not a naturally occurring element in the story. It seemed hypocritical and if people were saying things like that to me over and over again, I would be irritated that God hadn't been there to protect me earlier, while this family almost seems to take it for granted. Almost.

The overall story was OK, a bit of mystery with a lot of romance. Our main character is likable enough. The secondary character, however, was far too wishy-washy. The writing itself is just not good.

The narrator did a decent job. While I won't be going out of my way to find more narrated by the same person, I won't be avoiding them, either.

I received a free copy of this book from the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.
