This is one of the best stories in this series so far but the narration is awful. Stephens pauses at the wrong time in a sentence and puts emphasis in the wrong places. She also has long dramatic pauses and swallows a lot. She was better about not making everyone sound like crusty ole cowboys but honestly, if I hadn't already bought the series I would not buy anymore narrated by Stephens.
The fifth book in the Whispering Mountain series, is the first book with the second generation. Duncan "Duck" McMurray is now a Texas Ranger and has decided to send three men to Whispering Mountain Ranch, three "gentlemen" picked to call on Duncan's cousins. When his friend Lewton Paterson, wanting a chance to married into a good family decides to take the place of one of the gentlemen callers. While Duncan goes to the Texas-Mexico border to fight cattle rustlers, not wanting to go with the men to Whispering Mountain to face his cousins.
Lewton soon finds out that the three women are just what he is looking for, but they are not liking for anyone like him. So he ends up spending his time working the ranch, the hardest work he has ever done; but he likes the work. In the end Lewton and a ranch-hand Em have to go to the border to try to save Duncan's life.
This is a great story that Jodi Thomas had written, it lives up to the rest of the stories in this series. Linda Stephens does a good job with the narration.
