    Another series by Tracie Peterson! The Heart of Cheyenne begins with book one, A LOVE DISCOVERED. With this series, we venture into the wilds of Wyoming with widower, Edward Vogel a Marybeth Krugel, who is raising her baby sister. The two have been good friends for years but decide to marry--a marriage of "convenience"--so that Edward can accept new job as a deputy in rough and tumble Cheyenne, and Marybeth can stave off the "church" people who want to take Marybeth's sister.

    Living and applying the law in the new railroad town is much more challenging than either of the young couple could have imagined. Marybeth is a trouper. Accustomed to hard work and innovation, she makes a home for the little family from living in a tent to a shed.

    Edward finds adapting to the lawlessness and use of vigilantes like nothing he's ever encountered. But they can't go back.

    Living together in such close proximity causes the warming of their hearts. But Edward doesn't want a true marriage for fear of losing another wife to childbirth. But even in the most challenging of circumstances, love ultimately finds its way.

    High recommended for fans of Tracie Peterson, historical, wild west stories, romance, and faith messages. 4.5 stars.

    I received an ARC from the publisher for my honest review.

    A Love Discovered, by Tracie Peterson, is the first book in the Heart of Cheyenne series. Marybeth's father has past away leaving her and a very young daughter. The local minister is trying to take the little girl away from Marybeth. Meanwhile Edward's friend has offered him a job thinking Edward was a married family man. Marybeth and Edward have both suffered great lost and decide to marry in name only.

    This is a very well written, easy to read and imagine story that caught my attention from the very beginning and held it to the end. This story shows the depth of their friendship and commitment to each other. I especially enjoyed how realistic this book in with the feelings the women have of living in such a city, where women are scarce and it isn't safe for them to be out by themselves. I enjoyed how strong the women are and how they watch out for and help each other. This is such and enjoyable story that is easy to get lost in.

    I voluntarily received a complimentary copy of this book, this is my honest review.

    A Love Discovered, set in the late 1860s, launches the Heart of Cheyenne series. This book touches the heart and stirs the emotions with a sweet marriage of convenience love story fraught with struggles. The author's fluent writing style and consummate storytelling skill creates the feeling of "being there" as you read. Strong, memorable characters jump off the pages and into your heart. The vividly, detailed sketched setting of the wild town of Cheyenne had me fearing the lawlessness and shivering in the cold! I greatly appreciate that the story is steeped in faith that adds depth to the historical romance. I love this story and can't wait to return to Cheyenne! This book has my highest recommendation.

    I received a complimentary copy courtesy of Bethany House through Interviews and Reviews via NetGalley for my honest opinion. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    This was a sweet marriage of convenience story set in the old west town of Cheyenne. It was not without heartache and danger. Edward is encouraged by a Civil War friend to relocate to Cheyenne to help with law enforcement in the somewhat lawless boom town along the railroad. Marybeth is in a predicament when her father dies and the care of her two year old sister is questioned by so-called well meaning people. Edward and Marybeth agree to marry to help eachother but plan to keep their relationship as friends only.

    Much hardship is shown of life in a town that is both growing and partly abandoned when the construction of the railroad moves west. The characters struggle with trusting God to order their steps, but godly wisdom is dispensed within this story.

    A bright spot was the portrayal of two year old Carrie and her sweet, trusting nature.

    This was a good start to a new series by a favorite author.
