Really enjoyed this new story from Davalynn Spencer. The Ranger shows up in town to find a horse thief only to let someone steal his heart.

Martha "Marti" Hutton is all grown up, educated and a widow. She returns home to her parents after her husband has been gone for over a year. Can she move on with her life? And what of that mysterious man who keeps showing up? Is he Evil or Good?

Apple picking will never be the same! I loved how a thing like apples made this story all the more sweet! This is the third one in the familiar Colorado setting. Loved getting to have familiar characters back, and new ones to fall in love with. :)

Romancing the Widow is a sweet historical romance set in Colorado. Haskell Jacobs, the main male character, was a great character. I enjoyed reading the story of this young widow and a Ranger. I won this book in a giveaway by the author, Davalynn Spencer.

"Bestseller" is always a fun adjective, and three recent novellas in Barbour collections have all hit bestseller lists - ECPA and Publisher's Weekly.

My last novel with Heartsong Presents|Love Inspired, Romancing the Widow, won the 2015 Will Roge
