Book Review ~ A River to Cross by Yvonne Harris

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves the old west and Texas Rangers! A River to Cross gives us a glimpse into the history and life of the Texas Rangers in the late 1880's while weaving a sweet romance between a ranger and a senator's daughter.

Neither Elizabeth or Jake are looking for love. Both use being a Texas Ranger as the reason. It was a demanding and dangerous life. Elizabeth already had a heartbreaking experience and didn't want a repeat. Jake knew there was no room for domesticity in his life. Or so he thought. Their story is chock full of adventure, from murder to kidnapping to rescue to falling in love. You don't want to miss this one. It's a real treat!

Learning about the Texas Rangers was my favorite part of this book. I have always loved law enforcement (my great grandaddy was a southern lawyer then a judge back in the late 1800's – early 1920's) so the law aspect of this book was the most interesting to me. My favorite character is Jake. He's everything a girl dreams a man would be. He's intelligent, tough and strong, yet with the right woman he is gentle and compassionate. Even though Elizabeth was raised in Washington, DC she has a stern character and determination to forge her way into a man's business world all while staying the genteel bred woman she is. The myriad of secondary characters are a pleasure to be introduced to and I certainly hope Ms. Harris is planning on continuing with another book...perhaps about Gus!

I received this book unsolicited from Bethany House for free. I was under no obligation to give a positive review.

You can purchase a copy for your reading pleasure at Amazon, CBD, Barnes & Noble or your local book store.
