"The Lawman's Holiday Wish" by Ruth Logan Herne is the third book in her Kirkwood Lake series and it was a wonderful book that covered the fall up to Christmas where the magic happens.
And yes this maybe a third book in the series but it is a great stand alone book in itself, so no worry there if some haven't had the chance to read the other two.

We are able to see more of Rainey who was introduced in her sister story "Falling for the Lawman". Rainey is a woman with a past which has both good and
I always enjoy reading Love Inspired books. They have a message. The Lawman's Holiday Wish was a very good book. Rainey had rough teenage years.

My emotions were crying, praying, thinking, rejoicing, laughing, and many others while reading it! THANK you, Ruth Logan Herne, for sharing your God given ta ...more
This took me forever to finish, because I read two chapters and then got busy getting ready for Christmas, and only got to pick it up again weeks later. I thought I'd have to start over, but as soon as I'd read a page I remembered everything about the characters and their problems, which speaks to how vividly written they were.
This was another Harlequin Love Inspired, so it featured a brand of "let's talk about our faith a lot" Christianity that isn't But it was believable for the ch
Another great story in this series.

"Another winning Christmas story from a much-loved author. Herne knows how to pack an emotional punch and this one left me reeling, in fact, she made me cry. :-( But I forgive her because this book is pure Christmas magic." to read more, go HERE>
