Publisher's Summary

Marty Dandridge Olson is a widow looking for a way out of Texas. Widower Jake Wythe has secured a job as a bank manager in Denver, only to discover that the bank board wants him to be a married man. With Texas in his roots, he advertises for a Lone Star bride, and Marty answers the call. They both agree they are done with romance and love and will make this nothing more than a marriage of convenience. Marty works to carve out a new life in high-society Denver as Jake works to guide the bank through a collapsing economy.

But when money goes missing at the bank and accounting discrepancies point to Jake, he must find a way to prove his innocence. Yet all he wants to do is go back to Texas and own his own ranch. Marty, on the other hand, owns a ranch - one she's never told her husband about. She hates Texas because it represents the losses in her life. But as the couple grows closer and love begins to bloom, Marty realizes she needs to tell Jake the truth. Can she come to terms with the past and her anger toward God in order to make room for love?

    "Great story!"

    This was a great story but ended very abruptly. Glad to know there was a sequel. The narrator did a great job.

    "My first by Tracie....."

    But not my last! Loved this book! This is a heartwarming story about life, love and God. I can't wait to read the second book in the series.

    "Cute but incomplete"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really enjoyed this book and even though the voice of the narrator seemed too old for the main character I was able to see through that. However, the ending seemed rushed and I feel too many items were left unsolved and incomplete. I never write reviews because I am no scholar and usually read just for enjoyment. However, this ending truly left too much. Maybe I missed something? Like two more chapters?
