This is the third and final story in the "Brides of Gallatin County" series and is has been very enjoyable to get to know the Gallatin sisters and the folks in their town and community. It takes place in Montana in the late 1880's and shows what life was like back then and the evil that existed as well as the determination folks had to "make it through" the tough times.

In this story the youngest of the Gallatin girls, Lacy, finds herself not able to let go of finding the person who killed her father. Lacy should have been born the boy in the family because she likes to wear trousers, ride horses, shoots like a man and show herself tough on the outside. But she has a tender heart on the inside and the capability to love and love well. Dave Shepard is the deputy sheriff in town and Lacy and him seem to "butt heads" a lot. Dave gets upset with Lacy, but it is only because he loves her and doesn't want her hurt. Lacy doesn't like to be told what she can and cannot do, so they are always at odds with one another. When a snowstorm finds them housebound together, Dave finally gives Lacy what she needs - a good kiss - and Lacy suddenly realizes she has feeling for this man. But is it love or just a strong physical attraction. This is something Lacy will need to decide for herself. Meanwhile, there our men in the town who are out to do damage to the sheriff and the Gallatin girls if things don't go their way. So there is also a good suspense factor to the story. All in all, it is a story about people and their struggles both inwardly and outwardly in a time where evil prevailed and sometimes situations ended up with guns been drawn and people being hurt. ( )

I hadn't read the other two books in the series before I read this one, but that really didn't matter. This book was absolutely delightful and I really enjoyed it. The characters and plot were fun and believable, which isn't always the case with Christian fiction. I think anyone could pick up this book and enjoy it. I'd heartily recommend this book and I'm planning on checking out the rest of the series as well as some other books by Tracie Peterson.

While this is Christian fiction, and Christianity plays an important part in the story, I didn't feel like the author was hitting the reader over the head with it. This could make it an excellent choice for the reader who just wants a nice love story without it being x rated.

Thanks to Bethany House for sending me a copy of this great book to review! ( )

This book is a great ending to the trilogy of The Brides of Gallatin County. Once again the characters from the previous books are brought to a deeper level. Tracie really knows how to make you despise a bad guy, and in this book she even eloquently finds a way for a reader to find sympathy for the antagonist. I would say that this book is deeper and a little bit heavier than the other two, but it is good and could be read alone. This is one of those books that can make you look back on yourself and question if you are where you need to be in your faith. Lacy, the youngest of the Gallatin sisters has tried so long to be a strong person that she just ignores her pain and tries to go it all alone. It is once she realizes she needs another's strength that she can really prosper. ( )

I liked this third and final installment of the Brides of Gallatin County. I feel like I will miss the characters, especially Lacy who was the center of this book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764201506, Paperback)

Lacy Gallatin, the youngest of the Gallatin sisters, is a woman with a mission: to find her father's killer. Haunted by the belief that she's failed him, Lacy is also battling a desire to have something more than just revenge, something she can't quite figure out.

Enter Dave Shepard, deputy sheriff for the area. Dave has been fervently trying to find the man who killed George Gallatin, but he always feels inadequate when it comes to the beautiful Lacy. When they are together, the tension crackles between them--both when they argue and when they kiss. Lacy finds him frustratingly irresistible...but is it truly love?
