Publisher's Summary

When Amelia first brings Bruce home, Jude and Alma and Allegra laugh at him. He’s a big, gangly hulk of a man, but he’s clumsy and ungainly in his movements, unlike delicate, careful Amelia. Jude especially sees Bruce as an easy target for his pointed sense of humor. The sisters can’t figure out why Bruce doesn’t stand up to his much smaller brother-in-law, when he could put Jude in his place with a flick of his wrist. No amount of encouragement from anyone can prod Bruce into asserting himself. He even seems to go out of his way to bow to Jude’s will. Even Alma finds Jude’s behavior toward Bruce disturbing.

But no one on the Goodkind ranch knows that Bruce is hiding an explosive secret, one which will transform the relationships of this family forever. The introduction of another man into the family brings fresh complications to the fragile peace established after Jude’s arrival. Competing loyalties and affections breed conflicts and misunderstandings, until everyone stands against everyone else. Only Amelia’s unwavering faith in her new husband carries them through to the ultimate climax. In his last battle, Bruce finds a strength he never knew he had in Amelia’s love.

Man or Mouse

While most of the story was as good as the 1st book in the series, I had a hard time with the description of Bruce. Maybe people were a lot smaller back then but the way Bruce is portrayed makes it sound like he's gigantic. I also had no idea from the first book that Jude was such a nasty bully. The best scene is the very last chapter and it has left me wondering how Alma and Jude are going to react.

Odd Story…

I found myself becoming disturbed by the interactions between Bruce (featured in this story) and Jude (introduced in Book 1 of this series). Fortunately, the story line is interesting in that you’ll want to find out just what is in store for these three sisters in the end—plus there’s still the mystery of “whatever happened” to Allegra, the third sister that was so secretive that was continually being brought up but was never disclosed. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
