    All right, so I read this book because I had read the first in the Prairie promises trilogy (The Bride Bargain) and while that book wasn't great, I had the whole trilogy already so I thought this one may be better. I was wrong, this is junk. Not that Miss Hake didn't have a potentially great book, but where she took it was just not good. I was highly uncomfortable by reading Opal trying to seduce her husband, which was only made worse by her using the advice of a young, unmarried girl. They didn't even really get to know each other (Opal and Adam), and since their families hated each other, it would have made sense for them to try to learn about each other. Also, the whole "big issue" in the plot could have been avoided had Opal simply said to her husband "I'm sorry if it makes you mad, but I lied to save your life." How hard would that have really been? Then they could have spent the rest of the book courting and actually could have had a sweet example of God working everything (even our mistakes) together for the good. But that did not happen and the book was about Opal trying to right one wrong with another (a.k.a trying to cover up her lies, instead of just confessing).

    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.
