Publisher's Description:

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.

Happy reading,
