Publisher's Summary

All's fair in love and war, and Sophie is determined to win the battle for her aunt Maud's cattle ranch - even if it means fighting Elijah, a rude ex-military man. But it seems that even from the grave Aunt Maud is still matchmaking; her will states that both Sophie and Elijah must share the ranch evenly, and neither wants to give up a share. But Sophie's main focus is on the ranch, not romance; she just put her life back together after being betrayed in her previous marriage.

As the two work side by side, their feelings begin to change. But before they can find their happily ever after, Elijah must see through Sophie's hard armor to the sweet soul beneath, and Sophie must help Elijah overcome his wartime nightmares of fallen friends. In Life After Wife, second chances and true love are strong, triumphing amid heartache and despair.

Selfish Sophie

Sophie is a selfish, rich btch who just inherited half a ranch from her great aunt. She tells Elijah who inherited the other half that she doesn't care that he served his country as a soldier for 20 years. She says there are no machine guns or drug cartel in Texas so he should take the million dollars she inherited from her deceased televangelist husband as payment for his half of the ranch and get out leaving the only home he has ever known.

I hate this btch and don't think she deserves a happy ending. Her husband cheated on her. Boo hoo hoo. It serves her right for marrying the kind of "religious man" who sells religion for profit. She knew he was dishonest and unscrupulous. Why would she expect honesty or honor in marriage when he had none in his professional life.

I liked the story but

I liked the storyline and the characters from all three books. however, this last book seemed to end abruptly. I was a little bewildered by his proposal and her acceptance.

Disappointing

My least favorite book from this author so far (after the Lilac bouquet and the Ladies room). In comparison this one was just a very predictable romance story, a bit boring at times).

To short

This book was tooo short! I kept wanting more. I was who led when it ended abruptly. However, it did end the way I wanted it to end, but way to soon.
