Alejandra Loyola knows she’s going to die. If having information about her uncle and cousin’s illegal cattle rustling operation isn’t enough to get her killed, then snitching on them to the law will surely mean her death—and she’s snitched more than once. The only question is, will she be able to see her younger sister provided for before she dies?
Harrison Rutherford has worked hard to establish himself as one of the best lawyers in the bustling city of Austin, Texas. But when he decides to defend a poor family against harm caused by a wealthy business owner, everything goes wrong. After his father suffers a stroke, Harrison finds himself not just kicked out of high society, but headed to the remote town of Twin Rivers where he grew up.
But all is not as it seems in Twin Rivers. Rustlers have been wreaking havoc on local ranchers and evading law enforcement for over a year. But the best way to bring the rustlers to justice just might involve Alejandra Loyola, a standoffish maid with a pretty smile and eyes that say she knows too much.
As the rustlers become more dangerous, will Harrison and Alejandra learn to trust each other enough to stop them? Or will the rustlers prove powerful enough to destroy not just the ranches surrounding Twin Rivers, but any hope for a future between them?
Tomorrow’s Steadfast Prayer by Naomi Rawlings is another excellent read! I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with this series, and book four may be one of my favorites yet. What I really loved about this story is the constant state of stress and suspense I found myself in. All I wanted was for Alejandra to talk to Harrison or Daniel or Cain or anyone and craft a master plan to get the bad guys, but she’s trapped. She cannot speak to anyone or it could mean the life of someone she cares for deeply. Man, was I stressed the whole read. It was fantastic! As with her previous books, Rawlings characters are spectacular. I love that we get a good glimpse into Cain and Anna Mae’s story (I so cannot wait for book five!), and I enjoyed getting to catch up with previous characters as well. As far as the hero and heroine go, I expected them to be awesome and Rawlings delivered. Harrison and Alejandra are great individually, and so darn cute together. I felt that the chemistry between the two is strong the entire story, and I wanted them to declare their love for each other long before they did, but as it is written is perfect. My heart really went out to Alejandra and her struggle to overcome what she considers her horrible sins. I think she is one of the strongest heroines I have ever read, but she is blinded to her strength. She sees it as a weakness until it’s pointed out to her just how amazing she truly is. And Harrison is rad. He is super smart and capable, but it’s his heart that really stands out. Harrison is a really good guy and always wants what is right and just. He is the hero to Alejandra’s heroine. Together they balance each other out so perfectly. I also loved the way Rawlings blends the Bible into the every day lives of her characters. It never feels forced. These characters genuinely love Jesus and it shows in their daily lives. I wish real life could be more Rawlings’s novels.
Tomorrow’s Steadfast Prayer is another wonderful and delightful story by Naomi Rawlings that I highly recommend. If you are a fan of Christian Western Romances that are well-written and highly engaging then I recommend purchasing a copy of this book ASAP. You won’t be disappointed you did!
***Recommendation*** Tomorrow’s Steadfast Prayer can easily be read as a standalone novel; however, I personally feel that to get the best reading experience you should read Tomorrow’s First Light first.
