Publisher's Summary

Listeners flock to USA Today and New York Times best-selling author Jodi Thomas’ Texas romances. Here, a rugged cowboy finds his hard heart softened by a desperate woman on the run. Happy to keep his head down and tend to his ranch, Teagen McMurray is certainly not looking for love. But then Jessie Barton—wife of Teagen’s bookseller friend Eli—and her three young daughters arrive on the scene seeking shelter. As he finds himself falling for the strong-willed Jessie, Teagen discovers things are not what they seem. Soon he’s protecting Jessie and her girls while battling a group of swindlers involved in a devious plot to take over a prosperous horse-breeding operation.
With this stirring addition to her Whispering Mountain series, Thomas continues to play with standard Western tropes in fresh ways. Linda Stephens leaves fans breathless with a stirring reading of this enlivening romance.
Shhh! Listen to another Whispering Mountain novel.

A thoroughly enjoyable listen with good plot and character development. I didn't realize until the end that this book was part of a series. When I did, I downloaded the rest; and enjoyed each one every bit as much as this title.

A Love Story Built on Letters

The self we express in letters and conversation is part of an internal mythology. If well crafted, it is as good as therapy. The premise of this love story is engaging. I wish that Teigen and Jessie had talked more about their perception of the world through books. The stark contrast with reality does not have to be as dramatic as an unknown enemy coming to steal land. I'm still waiting to read a book that deals with mature love and passion between people in their 40's and 50's. Maybe Martha will fall in love, but I'd not enjoy reading about "Proper" love affairs.
