Tucker is #2 in the McBrides of Texas, although Tucker and his cousins are closely related to the people of Eternity Springs and the angel cousins – Celeste and Angelica, who foster the romance and healing that Emily March brings to her stories.
Tucker has arrived in Redemption – having just left the army after a stint in Washington that left him with a distinct dislike of the political falsehoods of the place. He feels at a loose end as once upon a time he thought the army would be his life. He is a good guy, not perfect, but very good hearted and worthy of the best in life.
Gillian works with her mother in a bridal shop – a business they both love. Gillian is engaged to be married and the event is not far away. However it is rather telling that neither her mother or father are that pleased with the would be groom. I really liked how she goes up and down, until eventually she finds her whole hearted choice.
Tucker finds his business feet and soon his skills are to the fore. I really liked his survival teachings and it could be applied to any challenging situation.
I thought after so many books in this genre I’d be a little tired of them, however Emily March reeled me in with this story and I really enjoyed it. I loved meeting up with Caroline and Jackson from the first Texas book and I could have had even more of Haley, Jackson’s daughter, than we were given.
Its romance, family, challenge, angelic intervention, a beautiful setting and characters who worm their way into a reader’s heart.
Emily March is the New York Times, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today bestselling author of over thirty novels, including the critically acclaimed Eternity Springs series.
