Lena Sommer and Evan Hartmann are both grieving lost loved ones when they meet in 1886 Sawtooth City, Idaho, in this pitch-perfect third Sawtooth Range historical (after High Valley Promise). Mail-order bride Lena hopes to leave tragedy behind when she travels west, but when she arrives in Sawtooth City, she learns that her hoped-for husband, Mr. Nash, has died. When Lena decides to stay and run Nash’s boarding house, his boarders—including fellow mail-order bride Jessie Leach, whom Lena befriends—agree to help her. Only quiet loner Evan disagrees, and he warns Lena that she should leave soon, before winter arrives. The two butt heads, but Lena is determined to learn the ways of life in Sawtooth and find a connection with Evan, who intrigues her even as he pushes her away. Where loss has driven Lena to fierce, near reckless independence, it leads Evan to caution. Rich descriptions and entertaining characters bring to life the beauty and struggle of life in the 19th-century West. This cozy tale grounded in the everyday will surely delight historical romance fans. (BookLife)
