[Book Review] Fit To Be Tied (The Sisters of Bethlehem Springs, #2) by Robin Lee Hatcher

[Book Review] Fit To Be Tied (The Sisters of Bethlehem Springs, #2) by Robin Lee Hatcher

About the Book:It’s 1916, and Idaho rancher Cleo Arlington knows everything about horses but nothing about men. So when charged with transforming English aristocrat Sherwood Statham from playboy into cowboy, she’s totally disconcerted. So is Statham, who’s never encountered a woman succeeding in a “man’s world.” Their bumpy trot into romance is frustrating, exhilarating, and ultimately heartwarming. About the Author:Robin Lee Hatcher (www.robinleehatcher.com) is the author of sixty novels, including A Vote of Confidence, When Love Blooms, Wagered Heart, Return to Me, and Catching Katie, named one of the Best Books of 2004 by Library Journal. My Review:I enjoyed this one, too! It picked up exactly where A Vote Of Confidence left off and was just as exciting to read as book 1! Immediately capture from page 1, Idaho and Bethlehem Springs became my home for the duration of the book. In this story, Robin mixes new characters in with the old in a perfect way. The story’s message of beauty being deeper than skin and that God loves us no matter our imperfections, is amazing and really gripped my heart. I found my heart going out to Lord Sherwood and wanted to hug him, pray for him and tell… Read more »

For seven years, Gwen has carved out a full life in the bustling town of Bethlehem Springs, Idaho, where she teaches piano and writes for the local newspaper. Her passion for the town, its people, and the surrounding land prompt Gwen to run for mayor. After all, who says a woman can’t do a man’s job? But stepping outside the boundaries of convention can get messy. A shady lawyer backs Gwen, believing he can control her once she’s in office. A wealthy newcomer throws his hat into the ring in an effort to overcome opposition to the health resort he’s building north of town.
