Review:Tall, Dark, and Determined by Kelly Eileen Hake

5 stars
Lacey is smart, stuborn, good shot, wants to learn, young lady.  I enjoyed her fighting for women's rights.
Decoy is a big well trained wolf hound. Wish my dogs as well trained.
Chase is looking to find the truth about the mine collasp, his brother's death the hurried sale of the mine and town.  He is one of the best trappers,hunters around. He is quite and strong and willing to protect the women of the town.
The town of Hope Falls was a mining town and when the mine collasped killing most of the miners. One owner hurried sold the town and left.
Lacey was an investor of the mine and the town. She lived back east and when she thought her brother Braden Lyman was dead, then finding he survived but very injured. Lacey came up with a plan and talked her cousin, her brother's fiance and her sister to invest and go live in Hope Falls.
Lacey decided that to save the mining town to open up a saw mill. Lace bought out her brothers partner in the mine and town. Bought all the land she could and then wrote an ad saying. Want three single men with experience in logging to marry and start a saw mill and be part owners of the mill.
Two dozen men showed up in town for the prospect of marrying a rich wife.
In the previous book I believe Evie fell for Creed and now they  wants to marry.
Evie's sister Cora Thompson was Braden's Fiancee. Braden  trapped in bed tries to break up with Cora and send all the women back east. Cora is not letting Braden off the hook on marrying her.
Naomi was the oldest at 27 and Lacy's cousin.
They all agreed with Lacey's plan and were looking for men to help then and marry them.  Lacey just turned 18, So could get controll of her money, with Braden hurt badly she took controll over his property, Sold their family home to move to Hope Falls to save the town and help her brother get well.  Women at the time could not be property owners. They were not paying the loggers for their help. They provided good food and the chance to marry one of three women and become part owners of the mill.
I enjoyed reading of about the four women who came to a mining town and were going to own and turn it now to logging town. Would love to read more books to find out what happens next in Hope Falls.
Its a clean and old fashioned romance novel. I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley.
