I grabbed a book off of my shelf from one of the summer reading programs where I got like 12 free books. I have tons of these books and this one was the first one to get read. Loving the Lawman (Love Inspired\Kirkwood Lake) by Ruth Logan Herne was a short book that had me wanting to know what was going to happen next. I don't have any other by the same author so I don't know if she has any others with the same characters but I loved this one!!
Widowed and pregnant, Gianna Costanza comes to Kirkwood Lake with her
world in pieces. She's determined to put her life back together after
her cop husband's death, and romance definitely isn't part of the plan.
But when she meets her new landlord and neighbor, she knows she doesn't
stand a chance. Deputy Sheriff Seth Campbell is strong and kind, and
more supportive than she ever imagined a man could be. Soon he's
sweeping Gianna off her feet. But she doesn't know if he's ready for an
instant family—or if she's brave enough to love another lawman.
This book started off with a little bit of a mystery because Gianna and her grandmother moved to a new town and there didn't seem to be a lot of reasons behind it. After getting more into the book, you find out all the reasons that they have moved there to start their new life and business. Gianna's husband was killed and she lost her baby. She decided to start over her life and have her husband's child through an already frozen embryo. After moving to town, she feels an attraction to her landlord and local sheriff but fights the attraction. She doesn't want to set herself up for another loss in her life after her father and husband to law enforcement. He is fighting with the attraction as well because she is starting her life with her new child. You have to pick up the book and find out what happens to their friendship. I hope that you check out this book and see for yourself.
