I like that Gracie was willing to sacrifice her freedom for her sons. Don't agree with her but admire the sacrifice. I wish I had read the other books in this series.
Janet characters are likeable and seam real to me.
Gracie Stone has been home from prison for a while. She is living in the family home on the ranch. Her sons all have houses built on the ranch too.
One night Gracie can not sleep and she sees headlights coming down her road. She figures one of her sons saw her light was coming to check up on her. When she hears the soft knock on the door realized it can't be them.
Its a strange female who has fallen at the door.
She is bleeding and says Calen name. Gracie calls her son that knows some first aid and Calen.
Calen realizes it is his daughter Renee and she has been shot, and abused. After the ambulance leaves they realize the dog wants them to follow him and heads to the car.
Thier is a little girl crying in the car. Her name is Tessie and she is scared of males, but trusts Gracie.
Thier have been lots of theft of stores around the area the latest he shot one of the thiefs and they caught one.
Renee tells them the other robbers name and says she was forced to be a part of the last robbery. Renee lived with her mother in a city and had runaway from home when she was 16.
Calen says he will take care of Tessie and do everything for Renee.
After a doll was left hanging by a noose in Gracie's house. Tessie sees it and says dolly mine and bad man.
Sheriff realizes that thier was a second man and Tessie or Gracie might not be safe.
One of Gracie's son's father-in-law built a house with bullet proof windows and state of art security system. So thats where Gracie and Tessie stays.
Calen has liked Gracie since high school but he was too shy and his good friend married her and was abusive to her.
Gracie's sons think they need to find a husband for thier mother and one of them thinks Calen would be perfect.
Thier is no sex or swearimg in this book . Just a nice romance with a little danger on the side.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
