The third book in the Brides Of Last Chance Ranch series.
Book description: Molly Hatfield comes to Arizona Territory seeking stability and security. But living in Cactus Patch provides her with more than she ever dreamed.
There is nothing Molly wouldn’t do for her teenaged brother, Donny. Blaming herself for the accident that left him wheelchair bound, Molly has dedicated her life to his care. But in 1896, gainful employment for a woman is hard to come by. So when Molly learns that an eccentric rancher in Cactus Patch, Arizona, is looking for an heiress—someone to take over management of the ranch in exchange for future ownership—she jumps at the chance to provide a real home for her brother.
However, Molly didn’t bank on meeting Dr. Caleb Fairbanks, the town’s charming unmarried doctor. Caleb has a way with Molly that makes her nervous. But it’s how he is with her brother that really alarms her. Caleb sees past the wheelchair and genuinely likes Donny, but Molly fears he’s putting unrealistic ideas into her brother’s head. Falling in love with Caleb would threaten everything she’s worked for, even her brother’s future happiness. But it could be the very reason God brought her to Last Chance Ranch.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~My thoughts:I picked this book without really reading the description or looking it over really and I'm glad I did! I now want to read the other book's in this series :) This book got me interesting and I had no problem reading it without having read the first two books. The story was sweet and fun with characters that spark your attention. I read the book in one night and really enjoyed it. I liked how Molly was being healed from her past and being accepted again. However I just don't really know if I would reread in the future :/ I'm unsure, because I liked it, but just don't see myself rereading it. I would recommend this book to YA+ girls and women. It's an enjoyable book with a beautiful cover!
My cover thoughts:I love it :) I think it goes really well with the setting and it's soooo pretty! I just think it's little weird that a doctor would wear a cowboy hat :P
My favorite character:I really liked Molly, Aunt Bessie and Donny. All were strong characters that you enjoy and with Molly and Donny you really get to see them grow :)
