When spunky Cassidy McClare rolls into town she is figuratively and literally knocked on her backside by "pretty-boy" Jamie McKenna. "Sweet Thunderation! Not a pretty boy! That is the last thing she wants. If she had her lasso out she would've hog-tied him right then and there, or branded him with her branding iron. Little did she know that he would become a fixture around her Aunt Cait's place.
Cass has come to San Francisco from Texas in the summer of 1902, to heal her heart from "pretty boy" Mark who broke her heart in Texas, and to begin a teaching career with her cousin Alli.
All would be fine if that is what happens, but Jamie McKenna has other plans. He plans on courting Cass, but his reasons aren't so ethical and when Cass puts him to the test sparks start flying, and that is putting it mildly.
In true Julie Lessman form, this book is centered right where it needs to be and that is on God.
There is a cast of great characters, that you will fall in love with.
Julie has out done herself with the Cass and Jamie. These two are memorable. You may find yourself using new phrases like "Sweet Thunderation", "Flea infested mongrel", "polecat." Don't say you haven't been warned.
I highly recommend this and give this book a Lighthouse for pointing a path to God.
