Bound by a secret...
June 11, 2014
During the Oklahoma Land Rush in the late 1800's, people can from all over the country hoping to grab a slice of land and begin to live the American dream. Folks would do just about anything and head in any direction to gain the slice of prosperity just ripe for the picking to begin a family and a future. But there were also those who ventured to make a bit of profit from those innocent enough and weak enough not to put up a fight, when so called "accidents" began to happen.
Four men simply known as the Black Four were helping things along by ensuring certain weaker settlers met with more bad luck than others. Worst of all some of these men were of the local "Security Patrol" which led to people not suspecting them of any wrong doing. As the Black Four, these calvarymen had done exactly where they were out here charged to prevent: cut fences, set fires, let livestock loose and a whole host of other crimes. Acts designed to intimate folks out of their land. As a result, the scared settlers had sold their stakes at cheap prices and to the right convenient buyers.
Now all Sheriff Clint Thornton had to do was prove that the Black Four were behind all these events and the only was he will be able to do that is to convince them, he is truly on their side. I mean it doesn't hurt the group of men to have the law in your back pocket. How convenient when people begin to grow suspicious. But when the band of men targets Lars Brinkerhoff and his sister Katrine, they are about to go too far in order to get him to sell his land. This time the group has murder on their minds and they won't stop until they get what they want.
I received The Lawman's Oklahoma Sweetheart by Allie Pleiter compliments of Harlequin Love Inspired Publishers and Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation and the opinions expressed here are strictly my own. For anyone who loves a great Christian Western Romance, you will want to snatch this one up. It's a small enough paperback to tuck it in anywhere for a great adventure, and perfect for a summer read. I give this one a 4 out of 5 stars and this is book 3 in the Bridegroom Brother Series. It teaches us all that in the midst of difficult family feuds, resolution and forgiveness are all that is needed for a restoration to occur. No damage is ever too deep that God can't heal the rift that keeps you apart. There is even a sneak peek at Her Montana Cowboy, a new six part series in the Big Sky Centennial guaranteed to wet your appetite.
Are you like me, one who loves to sit down to read a good book that has a lot of action, adventure, perhaps even a smidgen of romance? I love reading a lot from writers who share their stories and help audiences everywhere to get lost in the pages of book as taking a break from reality for just awhile can be like a fresh breeze. Here is tale set in the late 1800s in Oklahoma. The sheriff is a man who is pursuing evidence against a gang known as the Black Four.
These Black Four men are attempting through nefarious means to cause people to sell their land and vacate the premises immediately. What first begins as cutting fences and running out livestock escalates to murder. The members of the gang appear in public to be upstanding men, but in the dark of night they carry out their plans to remove landowners, then disappearing before anyone can recognize them. Sherriff Clint Thornton along with Brave Rock citizen Lars Brinkerhoff hatches a plan to capture these dangerous men so the townspeople and ranchers can live in peace. However, the plan they come up with is dangerous plus it calls for Lars to be dead, which is the hardest part of all lying to Lars sister Katrine along with the town folk. The Sherriff's brothers cannot even know of this plan for fear that the very men Clint must trap might overhear whispers of the truth that Lars is in hiding and very much alive. Clint reluctantly tells Katrine of the plan only after she swears to tell no one, but he has to agree to let her write him and take the notes back and forth.
Historical stories are very captivating to me, especially when the characters have faith in the Lord along with facing difficult times, dangerous situations and also sweet moments. Westerns are enjoyable to read and the author crafts a great story that kept me turning pages till I was done! While romance is part of the story, there is more to the characters like their faith, making a living, and being part of a community. Like most people I love to cheer for the good guys to win in the end, and the sacrifice from some of the characters in the tale reminds us of the cost of freedom. I loved the twist in the storyline the author threw in when I least expected it! That was great!
Don't pass up the book! In fact, if you're like me, you would want to know the titles to the other two books in the series which are The Preacher's Bride Claim and The Horseman's Frontier Family.
