On My Nightstand - Revealed by Tamera Alexander

Annabelle Grayson and her husband, Johnny, are on their way west and a new life. To their delight, she discovers she's pregnant, but her happiness is short-lived. She's forced to return to Willow Springs as a widow.

She advertises for a guide to take her to her late husband's ranch. Matthew Taylor applies for the position, but a shocking revelation almost ends their partnership. In spite of misgivings, Annabelle hires him and they set off.

Matthew's anger and hurtful words cut her into her heart. Will she ever be able to leave the past behind? A single scripture verse gives her strength and courage to persevere, but will Matthew's secrets destroy any hopes for the future?

Tamera Alexander's book, "Revealed," won the Rita Award in 2007. Although the second book in the Fountain Creek Chronicles, it can stand alone. Both this books and its predecessor, "Rekindled," were so good that I recommend reading them in order. I got all three books in one volume as a Christmas gift from my Mom. I'm looking forward to the last book in the series. If you want to relax with a great historical romance, this book fits the bill.

No fees were received to review/recommend this book.
