When Her Family Is Threatened, She Doesn’t Expect Falling in Love to Be Their Best Defense

Many consider Evangeline Hamilton cursed. Orphaned at a young age and possessing a pair of mismatched eyes–one bright blue, the other dark brown–Evangeline has fought to find her way in a world that constantly rejects her. Yet the support of even one person can help overcome the world’s judgments, and Evangeline has two–Seth and Zach, fellow orphans she now counts as brothers.

Seeking justice against the man who stole his birthright and destroyed his family, Logan Fowler arrives in 1880s Pecan Gap, Texas, to confront Zach Hamilton, the hardened criminal responsible for his father’s death. Only instead of finding a solitary ruthless gambler, he discovers a man not much older than himself with an unusual family. And when Hamilton’s unique sister, Evangeline, insists on dousing Logan with sunshine every time they cross paths, Logan finds his quest completely derailed. Who is truly responsible for his lost legacy, and will restoring the past satisfy if it means forfeiting a future with Evangeline?

My thoughts and giveaway:

Karen Witemeyer has crafted another outstanding book. I’m not even sure where to begin.

This book contains romance, mystery, humor and spiritual truths.

The romance between Evangeline and Logan builds slowly and innocently.

There are actually a few different mysteries going on that will keep you engaged, some thrown in later in the book. I loved that!

True to Karen’s style a few lines are zingers that will have you chuckling.

The spiritual truths are profound. We need to look beyond what we see and love the person within, the person God created.

Overall, another wonderful book.
