We've all been between a rock and a hard place at one time or the other. Faith has had a hard life which has recently reached the breaking point. She's on the run, but from what? Then there's Luke McCutcheon. A strong man with strong values, but with hauntings of his own. This first book in the McCutcheon Family Series introduces you to the whole family, their ranch hands, and some of the townsfolk of Y Knot, Montana. This is also one of the towns in the Mail-Order Brides series, of which Caroline Fyffe and Debra Holland each write compelling stories about finding out who you really are and what you didn't even know you were looking for.
The audiobook is a real treat. Corey Snow does great work putting voice to all the colorful characters along with a few unsavory ones that let us know there are those we need to watch out for. And that there is always a need for heroes. You feel like your part of the family. With all the action and nail-biting suspense to keep you looking forward to chapter after chapter. I highly recommend it.
Caroline Fyffe brings her characters and penchant for plot twists to a gloriously woven and heartwarming story. The common theme indicated in the series title of Caroline's books may seem like it be repetitive, but each has its own direction and "Heather" pointedly proves this multifaceted storytelling in a most wonderfully clever way. Ms. Fyffe really hits her stride in this one, this book just fits together and is extremely enjoyable and lovable.
As with any series, hopefully you've started at the beginning with Evie and also included series contributor Debra Holland's "Trudy". And do yourself a favor and include the early "McCutcheon Family Series ", such as Montana Dawn, as these books build up the characters that let's your read/listen of "Heather" make you a member of the town you will know so well and people and friends you'll be so familiar with.
In the Audible edition, Lara Asmundson continues narration of the series which keeps that familiarity of the people of Y-knot and solidifies them in your head and heart.
I did suspect one of the major plot twists early on, though I it was just a nagging intuition. The story is so well done, I was unsure of it until the end, which made the suspense all the better.
What if you've always lived in the same city, the same house, and your future looked like more of the same? That's the plight of our heroine, Evie. It's actually not a bad life in St. Louis, but Evie wants more than to remain a maid for the rest of her life. But how does she leave the woman who's kept her sheltered, fed and protected in this mansion of a cocoon. Author Caroline Fyffe weaves a wonderful story of the search for a new life in a new place. Out West. Where farmers and ranchers lead full lives except for one big thing…. love. Way more men than women. To help even out those odds is the Mail-Order Brides of the West Agency. But Evie isn't on the list. Well, not officially anyway.
Follow Evie as she executes her plan for a new life. When you're through, there's more stories of the Y Knot, Montana characters in Caroline Fyffe's McCutcheon Family Series. If you become curious about Evie's best friend, Trudy, her story is in the first of the Mail-Order Brides series, written by Debra Holland. And if you begin to feel at home in Sweetwater Springs, there's the Montana Sky series, where women make their way out West not because they're looking for love, though its hard to escape what the heart really wants, especially when it comes unexpectedly.
