“Dawn Comes Early” by Margaret Brownley


Margaret Brownley is such a fun writer I just want to hug her.

I loved her Rocky Creek series and was so excited to when I heard about her new Last Chance series.   Brownley has a way of adding little zingers and snippets of hilarity into all of her books, so you know when you pick up one of her novels, you’re in for a fun time (and constantly explaining to your husband why you’re laughing at random).

Kate Tenney, a recently humiliated dime-novelist, has moved out to Arizona in response to an ad in the local Boston paper.  The ad is seeking an “heiress” for a large cattle ranch upon the death of the current “boss lady”, tough-as-nails (and probably spits them, too) Eleanor Walker.  If she “gets the job” acres and acres upon land will be hers, but according to her contract, she will never be allowed to marry.

What Kate doesn’t expect is how absolutely, positively TOUGH ranching is, but she is determined to stick with it and give herself the gift of lifelong security.   She also doesn’t expect the reaction that Luke Adams, the town’s blacksmith, has on her whenever she is around him.  I loved the story line of the book and really loved Kate’s adventures (mishaps!) on the ranch.  All of the characters, from the hero and heroines, to the matchmaking aunts and ranch hands, add to the books content and flow.  This book will keep you turning the pages (or in my case, pressing the button on my reader) and I promise that you’ll be satisfied with the ending!

I received a digital copy of this book from BookSneeze, Thomas Nelson’s Book Blogging program, in exchange for my review.  I was not required to give a positive review, just an honest one.
