A Tender Hope by Amanda Cabot ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

Thea Michener takes a job in Cimarron Creek as a midwife after the death of her husband and baby. So when a Texas Ranger shows up with a baby asking her to help take care of the baby, she doesn't know how much her heat can handle.

Ranger Jackson Guthrie has been watching Thea for long time, as he suspects that her husband was tangled up with the gang that killed his brother. But as he gets to know her he doesn't know how much to tell her, and what kind of danger she might be in, as the case becomes increasingly more complicated.

Will Thea and Jackson be able to get to the bottom of everything and perhaps find love?

The third book in the Cimarron Creek Trilogy it also stands well on it's own, there are some familiar faces if you've read the previous books but I think that you could figure out the storylines without reading the other books even though that would help. A bit slow to start, but nonetheless compelling. Thea is still grieving and has no intentions of marrying again or raising a child. I empathized with her, and really liked her as a character.

I really liked Warner's story as well, it totally brought to mind a Jane Austen quote, "If I liked you less, I might be able to talk about it more." It was great to finally have Warner meet his match. I also really liked Aimee, as well.

Jackson is surprisingly good with babies, as he gets to know Thea and new pieces of the case are revealed it changes his perspective. He wants justice for his brother, and is dedicated to his job. 

A compelling read with great characters and plenty of mystery. A story of faith, hope, heartbreak and second chances.
