"Taming the Wind," by Tracie Peterson

"Taming the Wind," by Tracie Peterson
Though grateful for the blessing of her daughter, Carissa Lowe has accepted that widowhood is her lot in life. Bound by fear and mistrust, she feels incapable of opening her heart again.

Tyler Atherton has never forgotten Carissa. When he discovers she's living with her sister on a nearby ranch, his life becomes intertwined with the lovely widow's. And Carissa's daughter, Gloria, seems determined to wrap herself around his little finger. But while Tyler longs to provide a home and future for Carissa, he is haunted by an obligation he feels unable to fulfill.


Challenged by mounting hardships, can Carissa and Tyler preserve their fledgling love in a land as unforgiving and vibrant as the people who call it home?

This is the third book in the "Land of the Lone Star," series, and it nicely brought together the characters from the first two books, so it would be good to read them in order.

The leading characters, Carissa and Tyler are good lead characters.  There is a twist in the book, I thought it would be one thing, but it was another thing, so that kept you on your toes.  One thing that did puzzle me; in one breath the women were strong and working hard to keep house and home.  Next thing it portrayed them as being weak and vulnerable?  

Stars out of 5 : 4.5 I did enjoy the series and it is well worth reading them all and not too hard to read.
