Book Blurb from the publisher:
As far as Thea Michener is concerned, it's time for a change. With her husband murdered and her much-anticipated baby stillborn, there is nothing left for her in Ladreville. Having accepted a position as Cimarron Creek's midwife, she has no intention of remarrying. So when a handsome Texas Ranger appears on her doorstep with an abandoned baby, Thea isn't sure her heart can take it.
Ranger Jackson Guthrie isn't concerned only with the baby's welfare. He's been looking for Thea, convinced that her late husband was part of the gang that killed his brother. But it soon becomes clear that the situation is far more complicated than he anticipated--and he'll need Thea's help if he's ever to find the justice he seeks.
Amanda Cabot is one of my must-read historical romance authors and once again she has written an excellent book! "A Tender Hope" is book #3 in her Cimarron Creek Trilogy and it is such a good book to wrap it up. Thea is ready to start over with a new life and to put the past behind her we quickly learn as soon as we begin reading the book. Aimee is joining her on the trip to the new town and Thea is happy for the company and a friend. Thea is going to be working as the town's midwife and Thea is seeking answers as to her family as she is seeking to find her biological parents. The ladies are in for a surprise when they arrive in town to find a Texas Ranger and a baby on their new doorstep. Jackson is seeking answers and justice and he believes Thea is the woman he is looking for or at the very least she will be able to help him with answers. However, this is real life and things do not always go as planned or work out as smoothly as expected.
I thought this story flowed so nicely and the storylines were interwoven together well. The characters are all so easy to like and feel a connection with and I loved seeing some of the characters from the other books in this trilogy as well. Although I am sad to see this series end, I am eager to see what Amanda writes next!
