I do not normally read historical romance books that are set in America. I prefer reading the historical romance book’s set in England. However, after reading this book I might just change my mind at least for this author. MK has written a book that grabs the reader’s attention and refuses to let go.

Isabella is trying to overcome the death of her parents while trying to take care of her little brother Andrew. She has taken a teaching position in Montana. She is moving away from everything she has every known and every person. However the people that she once called friends will not see or speak with her any longer. However, as I always say when something like this happens in real life, “Their loss, and your gain.”

Gabriel is the middle child whose parents were cattle ranchers. Okay, I admit this is one part of history I would love to go back and experience. Can you imagine going on a cattle drive, thousands and thousands of miles on horseback, sleeping under the stars, cooking over an open flame, not having to worry about being anywhere but behind the cattle. Gabriel sounds like a man that would help anyone in need. In my mind, he is tall well over 6 foot, sandy blond hair, light gray eyes, nothing but muscle, with a heart of gold.

Gabriel meets Isabella and is intrigued by her and Andrew. He wonders what their story is and why they seem to be running from the past. Isabella is just trying to lead a normal life, to allow Andrew to grow up in to a wonderful person and give him an education.

This is the second book in the series. I have not had a chance to read the first book. However it is in the TBR pile. With that being said, click on over to Amazon and get this book. I am so glad I read this book. The author gives the readers just enough information to make you wonder about the first series. She makes it sound so interesting. Yes, a lot of the characters are carried over from the first book, but that is the best part about a series. Readers get to find out what happened to the pervious characters. The only drawback I found to this book was I cannot wait for the third book. I will have to change my TBR pile around to read the first book in the series.

Thanks for a great read MK. The bunnies and I enjoyed reading your work.

The bunnies and I give this book 4 carrots. ( )

A good story can have a little bit of romance, a little bit of adventure, and a little bit of mystery all rolled up into one. Ms. McClintock’s Gallagher’s Hope delivers all that and more.

A young woman finds herself alone in the world with just her little brother. Raised in a home with money, she now finds herself penniless. In order to start a new life, she takes a teaching job in Montana. There she finds a home, love, and more adventure than she had ever bargained for.

This story moves at a very steady pace. It could have gone faster without the narrative on the past and emotions but then the story would not have been so good. The reader will not find it hard to keep reading and finishing the book.

There is not just one story in this book. That is what I like about it. The author brings together several storylines and weaves them together in a masterful manner that leaves the end of book promising the reader even more.

Ms. McClintock’s writing is engaging and keeps the reader focused on the story. Her style is simplistic and entertaining.

I loved the way the author tactfully and expertly allows intimate scenes without having the need to describe them in detail. Just a few words tells the reader of a bedroom scene. The author focuses on the emotions and relationships being built.

This is a book I highly recommend for those that enjoy western romances without too much focus on the romantic side of things. This story comes with action and adventure.
