Gwen, Beth, and Lacy Gallatin fashion a life for themselves in the Montana wilds, operating a roadhouse that is located at the crossroads of two major stage lines. When their father is accidentally killed, the oldest sister, Gwen, reasons that she’s cursed. After all, death seems to haunt her: her mother, now her father…and she was married for a mere ten days before her husband died from a bout of measles.
As Gwen and her sisters struggle to maintain the inn on their own, an unexpected visitor adds to the mayhem. Hank Bishop claims to be searching for something in the possession of Gwen’s late husband. But mayhem of another sort builds in Gwen’s heart as she finds a growing attraction to this man. Can she dare to hope that love might again be hers? (via Goodreads)

Thoughts: I really liked this, except for a moment near the end of the book which had one moment which was very cheesy and threw off the remaining 10 or so pages.  It was nice easy read and the story was going along very smoothly until the moment near the end of the book, which seemed to be rushed and hurried along.  I really enjoy Peterson’s books, and she is one of the few Christian writers that I will read, and can only hope that the remaining 2 books in the series don’t have the same rushed ending that is cheesy.
