Circle C Milestones series
Available: March 2017
Fiction / Christian / Historical
Andrea Carter is finally pulling her own weight on the Circle C Ranch she loves. The only thing she loves more than helping to run the ranch is spending time racing and stunt-riding on her horse Shasta, with the help of wrangler Riley Prescott. Little does she know that when she and Riley stumble onto a mysterious cut in the fence around her brother's prize calves, life is about to get far more exciting--and dangerous.
A cryptic warning tied around a brick crashes through the window at a family party. Then cattle begin to die. When the horse barn catches fire, Andi knows this is more than just coincidence. But who is trying to hurt her family--and why?

I always enjoy a good historical fiction read! My homeschool teacher "mentor" first got me hooked on this genre during our schooling years. What a great way to learn about a specific time period through the characters in a book. Courageous Love was no different! Seeing through the eyes of Andi and her family made me realize how much work life was in the late 1880s - no corner store, automobiles, or cell phones! Yet, the family not only worked hard, but played (and celebrated) hard, too! Add in the mystery surrounding the family and you have a wonderful read!
I enjoyed the story and the characters. Although this is the fourth book in the series, I was able to pick up with the story and "know" the characters well. Kudos!
I received a complimentary book from Kregel Publications for my honest review.
