Janelle Mowery (When All My Dreams Come True and When Love Gets in the Way) concludes her popular Colorado Runaway series with another adventurous story of faith, hope, and love in the Wild West.
Rachel Garrett finds that attaining her dream of becoming a nurse is fraught with peril. A deputy sheriff with a wall around his heart doesn’t help matters, but when she learns why Luke Mason has barricaded his heart, her desire to heal confronts an even greater challenge. Her need of his protection from an unknown assailant might be the force that sends his wall crashing down around them.
Luke became a deputy in order to find the men who killed his father. He turns his back on God, only to run into the fiery Miss Garrett, who is a constant reminder of his lost faith. As Luke hunts for Rachel’s attacker, he finds she has snared his heart. Faced with the fear of losing another loved one, he must decide whether he can learn to rely on God to save her—or run from the love both offer.
When Two Hearts Meet revolves around a young nurse named Rachel Garrett who moves to the Colorado Territory to work with Dr. Barnes, in Rockdale, Colorado. Her path keeps crossing with Deputy Luke Mason, who, despite his efforts to stay away from her, finds himself losing his heart to Rachel. When Rachel gets attacked by an unknown assailant, Luke decides to do all he can to bring them to justice.
This was such a great book. I love books set in the Old West. I enjoyed watching the change in Luke in this book. In the beginning, he is mad at God for taking his father from him at a young age, but through Rachel’s influence, you see Luke’s heart soften towards God throughout the book. This is a great read, and I highly recommend it!
