    The Specks and the Grogans are still feuding but things could really go from bad to worse if Larry Grogan has his way. He has hidden a threatening note from his Dad for the Specks with a 'special' addition he wrote to make it more threatening but he doesn't plan on Adam finding the note first. When the Grogan milk cow doesn't show up for the morning milking Adam goes searching hoping Marla didn't make it onto Speck property. As he follows the trail he discovers Larry didn't repair the fence and Marla found the opening. Adam is carefully looking for the milk cow as he tries to watch his back when he sees Opal and that's when one of her brothers comes up behind him.

    When Opal's brothers and father don't come in for lunch she goes looking for them and discovers they all have their guns aimed at Adam. Opal has tried to keep the peace between the two families, as has Adam, each on their own and in their own way. To save her family from being murderers and to save Adam's life she claims that Adam will be the father to her child they change their plans and send for the preacher and a witness for a shotgun wedding. Opal is then disowned and sent to live with the Grogan's where she is also unwanted.

    And so the story begins, this was a good book from beginning to end and will keep you interested throughout. Three Grogans in love with two Specks and the rest all hate the opposing family, makes for a very interesting storyline. Kelly did a great job on this one. There are three books in this series, I wonder where the next book will take me.

    This book shows that standing up for what is right can lead to strange turns and twists. Being a peacemaker is not always easy or readily accepted. Strong friendship were made in this book and have followed from book one into book 3 also. Glad I purchased all 3 at one time so I didn't have to wait for the next delivery.

    This review was written for The Bride Backfire - eBook.
    Opal may have saved the life of a Grogan but that doesn't mean she wants to spend the rest of her life with him. Of course, getting that through his thick head is starting to cause her some problems! If her father finds out that a member of Grogan clan is sniffing around he'll shoot first and ask questions later. Opal just can't stand the possibility that more members of her family could die from this feud.

    Then his older brother Adam - the only bearable person in the clan - is caught sneaking around on their property with a note in his pocket suggesting that he's planning to take Opal! Oh, so now she has to save his life, as well? She uses every argument she can think of to dissuade her father and brothers from murdering poor Adam without hope. Desperately, she uses the only other thing she thinks could possibly help... she announces that she's pregnant with his child. As they're leaving the shotgun wedding Adam mentions the one word that Opal know will kill them all... annulment. And here she had hoped she could at least be honest with her husband.
