About the Book:

The ranch Nolan Key has spent decades working for, even lost a leg for, is now his—or at least it should be. But an absurd clause in his father’s will means he’s in danger of losing the place to his lazy, undeserving cousin. Nolan finds himself scrambling to save his home—by proposing marriage to the town laundress. 

Corinne Stillwater’s hands have betrayed her. Numb from hours of doing the same work over and over, her hands will only heal, according to the town doctor, if she gives up the laundry and marries. But she’s been stung repeatedly by love before, so that is one remedy she can’t swallow. 

When Nolan offers Corinne a marriage in name only, how can she refuse? Such a partnership could give them the security they seek, but what if the ranch isn’t as secure as they believe, and their lives—and dreams—aren’t quite as compatible as they thought?

My Review:

Snuggling up with a good book on the eve of 4th of July was a good idea, especially when I picked this one up to read. Not your typical marriage of convenience story in so many ways, it kept my attention. The groom and the bride had reasons to need to marry, yet both did not come without baggage. I felt like this book addressed the struggles that people would have in this situation and yet, was not inappropriate in any way.

I loved how the author wove in women inventing and the struggles they faced at that time, as well as physical handicaps. This well rounded story is one you will not want to miss.

I obtained this book from the publisher. The opinions contained herein are my own.
