Excerpt from Book
     Joshua Grayson is not happy about his new sister-in-law’s visit and he uses the term ‘sister-in-law’ loosely as Careen Kennedy Grayson was a complete stranger. Joshua’s brother, Matthew, left the family ranch in the dead of night to run away and wed a woman he’d never met. The fact Matthew was killed moments after walking out of the church with his new bride merely adds insult to injury. Joshua struggles with resentment and trying not to blame Careen for his brother’s death. But it is difficult not to harbor ill feelings when he knows she’s keeping secrets. Despite his suspicions, Joshua slowly grows attracted to Careen and even starts to like her. Unfortunately, Joshua knows all too well the folly of loving a woman he cannot trust.
     Careen Kennedy Grayson was married and widowed within minutes of the other. When her obsessive cousin, Luther, arrives minutes after Matthew’s death, she knows deep down he’s the one who killed Matthew. Luther is arrested and held for trial while Careen takes her husband’s body back to his family. Soon after arriving at the loving Grayson ranch, Careen learns of her mother-in-law’s heart condition. Unwilling to cause undue stress, Careen decides to wait until after Luther’s trial to speak the full truth of their son’s death. Soon Careen grows embedded in family and ranch life, getting closer to the Grayson’s with each passing day. She finds herself unnaturally drawn to Joshua and she knows their budding attraction will only complicate matters… Especially when the family discovers her cousin did indeed kill Matthew.

Mary's Review:     Marie has done it again.  She has written a Christian Historical Western Romance Novel that is sooo good.  I started it this morning at 8:00am and finished it at 4:30pm.  Once started, I could not put it down.  There is not only romance, but intrique, mystery, cold blooded murder, deceit, unconditional love, trust, family togetherness.  Marie leads you from one mystery to another and just when you think you have it solved, she throws in a twist and takes you into another adventure.  The characters will surprise you and you will either love them from the beginning or dislike them emensely.  Come meet Joshua the handsome hunk, Gage and Peter all her new brother in-laws, Careen the beautiful southern belle and widow of Matthew, Betsy, her faithful maid and friend, William and Elizabeth her in-laws, the cutest 3 year old twins girls ever, Jessica and Francis, Laura, the mayor's daughter,  Luther, the most evil man in the west and the rest of the cast.  I guarantee you will enjoy this book and ask the same question as I am going to ask?  Where is Book Two in the Grayson Series?
