Buffalo Huntress

Caught in the Middle

Regina Jennings

She Wants the Freedom of the Open Plains. 

He Wants the Prestige of a Successful Career.
Neither is Ready for What Comes Instead. 

The train to Garber, Texas, is supposed to bring life's next victory to Nicholas Lovelace. Instead, it gets held up by robbers who are thwarted by the last person Nick ever expected--Anne Tillerton from back home in Prairie Lea.
 
Anne's been hiding away as a buffalo hunter. She's only in town to find their runaway cook, but the woman flees--leaving Anne with her infant son. With Nick the only person Anne knows in town, the two form an unlikely team as they try to figure out what to do with the child.
 
But being in town means acting and dressing for polite society--and it's not going well for Anne. Meanwhile, Nick's work is bringing new pressures, and being seen with a rough-around-the-edges woman isn't helping his reputation. Caught between their own dreams, a deepening relationship, and others' expectations, can the pair find their way to love?

     As the third book in the series, it was a fantastic conclusion to the mystery haunting the first book. I would highly recommend reading in order. Although each book follows a different character, each book comes a few years after its predecessor. 

     In Sixty Acres and a Bride, a book I discovered by accident when I was bored and have been grateful for since then, we met Anne Tillerton and continued that acquaintance through Love in the Balance. Finally we get to really know Anne. I thought that she was a fantastic choice while Rosa and Molly were women, Anne is much more the man with britches and hunting buffalo for a living.

     The book was well written and continued in he same spirit as the first two. I enjoyed the Christian aspect of the book thoroughly. Anne must come back to God and Nick must learn that being saved doesn't save you from trials and tribulation. In the end they must remember that "For I know the plans I have for you" says the Lord "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" Jeremiah 29:11.

     I received this book as an incentive to write a review from a publisher.
