John Lawson is a broken man. Having lost the love of his life, he's having a hard time putting the pieces of his life back together. Although Lonesome Point law enforcement has ruled Lily's death an accident, John is sure that there is more to the story, and lives for the moments that he meets Lily in the in-between, the space between waking and sleeping.

Persephone 'Percy' Styles has a gift. Able to communicate with the spirit world, and having spent all of her time with those no longer here

I did it again. I fell for Jessie Evans' newest cowboy, and fell damn hard too. I figured Ropes and Revenge would be an emotional read at times, as well as a sexy, steamy, spooky one and I was right. It was all those things. Which made it great.

Months after losing his wife, his best friend, in what the police ruled an accident, John Lawson remains convinced that Lily was murdered. And between working his ranch and caring for his sons, he's determined to prove it.

When Persephone Style comes to Lo

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

Although all the books in this series can be read as a stand alone book, I would recommend that you read Chaps & Chance before this one so that you can understand how and why John lost his wife Lily eight months ago.

After having lost his beloved wife, John has become a shadow of himself and is still struggling to cope without her. Even though the police have ruled Lily's death as an accident, John is convinced that

Ropes and Revenge – WOW! Another amazing addition to Jessie Evans’ Lonesome Point Texas series. I’ve fallen in love with each of these cowboys as their stories unfold, but John Lawson’s tale was truly remarkable and touching. In book 5 of this series, we learn that John’s wife has been killed and although everyone believes it to have been an accident, he refuses to accept that. Ropes and Revenge takes us through John’s unrelenting hurt and heartbreak as he continues with his obsession to discove ...more

I have read the whole Lonesome Point Texas Series and l have loved each and every one of them. They all have a unique story behind the love story. You can read them as standalone including Ropes & Revenge but I do recommend you read Chaps & Chance first to get to know Lily and the background of her death.

John lost his wife seven months ago and he still doesn't believe it was an accident. He is convinced she was murdered but can not find any solid proof. He is consumed to find out the truth and

The Lonesome Point, TX series is one of my favorites. Jessie Evans knows how to write a sexy cowboy! Her writing gets better with every book and Ropes and Revenge has the most heart of the series, and the most suspense. John lost his wife, Lily, seven months ago in a tragic accident. Well, John doesn’t think it was an accident and he's been trying to prove it. Persephone is a psychic and she comes to Lonesome Point, a well-known haunted place, to help restless spirits cross over to the other sid

I love my Lonesome Point cowboys, especially the Lawson men. John is the eldest of the Lawson men. The strong, loving, reliable, brother, son and husband. He was happily married to Lily, together raising their two sons and taking care of the Lawson family ranch. Then tragedy took Lily away from John in a so called accident. John not believing Lily's death was an accident spent everyday since her death, 7 months ago, trying to find evidence that the love of his life was murdered, always coming up ...more

Can a broken heart be open to new love? 5++++++ stars

I have been looking forward to John's book ever since Cole's story. It helped to tie up those pesky loose ends that were still hanging around and it let's us all know that the heart always has more room for love. I have an Uncle that passed over 30 years ago, but to this day, his wife, my Aunt, has never looked at another man and to me that is so beautiful, but sad at the same time.

This story reminded me of an old saying (or poem) that I hear

Ropes and Revenge, Lonesome Point, Texas #6 was so amazing… John is now my favorite Lawson…
In Chaps and Chance, Lonesome Point #5, John Lawson lost his wife. It was ruled an accident, but John is convinced foul play was involved. Now in Rope and Revenge John is just going through the motions of life and fatherhood 7 months later and he is still struggling to find any evidence to support his belief that his wife was murdered.

Excellent story! After the horrific loss of his wife, John Lawson is floating through life. With two young sons depending on him he really needs to get it together. He couldn't, however, give up on the gut feeling that Lily's death wasn't an accident or his deep need for justice. When that mysterious ghost whisperer Percy Styles comes to town he is skeptical but when she begins uncovering clues that could help him prove Lily's murder he begins spending more and more time with her.

The Lonesome Point series just keeps getting better and better. All can be read as stand-alones, but I agree that you should pick up Chaps and Chance first for back story before reading Ropes and Revenge. These books are not to be missed. John is broken-hearted and wary of the abilities of Percy and second chance love is always bittersweet. This book was suspenseful, hot, romantic, steamy - did I mention HOT! I loved all the characters and this book kept you guessing until the end. Can't wait to ...more

mmm John.... I just wanna give John a big hug. after the tragic death of his wife, can he find a second chance at love?
Percy, the ghost whisper or spooky (love that nickname) a great personable character that just needs a place to belong.
I really enjoyed getting to know both these characters and seeing the other characters from before.
the plot keeps you turning the page, waiting for what happens next. I love Jessie Evans books. I cannot put them down once started.

I have said numerous times that I love Jessie Evans. That said, I was a little hesitant to start this one, I am not always a fan of books where someone's long time love dies and they find love again so soon. No, I don't think that there is a specific amount of time that someone should grieve, but sometimes authors seem to push a new love on a character when they just don't seem ready. This was not one of those times, they fit together and is wasn't rushed or forced. John lost his wife L

I'm sad to see this generation in Lonesome Point end. I've loved this series so much and this story didn't disappoint. Emotions are strong in this one with John moving on after losing his wife or at least he is trying to. He's having a hard time because he believes his wife was murdered, but there is no evidence to prove it. In comes Percy who can communicate with ghosts and she wants to do everything she can to help John and his sons the closure they need. The closer they get to the truth more ...more

I liked Percy's ways of persuasion, "I’m not a child, and my eyes are wide open.” Her palms slid down his chest, over his stomach, until her hands slipped beneath the bottom of his tee shirt." John is quite the romantic with his words, "sexy little whimpers and moans,” John continued in that rough whisper that threatened to undo her. “Just thinking about them is enough to give me a hard-on that won’t quit." I loved this book it had a little paranormal twist that I enjoyed. ...more

4/5 stars


When John Lawson’s wife Lily was killed in what appeared to be an ATV accident, he wasn’t able to let her death go, because in his gut, it doesn’t feel like her death was an accident. But the police department quickly ruled it an accident and shelved any and all investigations. But searching for clues and hints around the scene of Lily’s death has consumed any & all of his free time. His mother is concerned about him, but dutifully

I've been a fan of the Lonesome Point books for some time and Ropes and Revenge was worth waiting for. John and Percy's story was fantastic. While this book can standalone, I would recommend reading Chaps and Chance first so you understand John's backstory better.

OMG I just finished Ropes and Revenge and wow, I totally loved it. And it was different. But still classic Jessie Evans and Lonesome Point, Texas. And I loved it. Can you tell?

One major difference from anything I’ve read before is that Percy is a ghost whisperer. And while paranormal isn’t I would normally read, I loved it. It just enough to not freak me out too much. And I have to say, I love Percy. I love how she is with John and the boys. I love how she is just an easy going, everyone loves h

When I heard this might be the last in the Lonesome Point series my disappointment knew no bounds. When I started John's story I wanted to read it slowly to savor it as long as I could but I should have known that would not happen. I LOVE this series and this installment is my new favourite! I say that for each book but it's always true.

John Lawson...mmmmm I thought maybe Cole was my favorite Lawson brother but honestly John has probably won out after this one. Damn those Lawson men are stubborn though. I could not put this book down. I HAD to know how it ended.

We know John as the level-headed, consistent brother running the Lawson family farm from the previous Lonesome Point books. But then in walks Persephone (Percy), a "ghost whisperer" of sorts. A true sensitive to those on the other side. She steps in to help John prove th

Wow.. talk about a pleasant surprise! I came across this book on a blog tour and thought the blurb sounded interesting. I must say that it lived up to all of the great reviews I read. This book a little bit of everything: Suspense, ghosts, love, loss, heartache, and laughter. I loved how each page made me want to read more and more.

John's story was so heart-wrenching and anyone who has every lost anyone that they love can relate to his heartache and need for closure and self-imposed seclusion.

It's no secret that I'm a huge Lonesome Point fan, but I'll say that I was heartbroken to hear that this was the last installment. That being said, Jessie ended it beautifully. I honestly could not have hoped for more out of the conclusion of the books that held so many characters I'd come to love. It was just perfect.
Your heart will break for John. You'll cheer for Percy. And the twists and turns that Evan's is so spectacular at blindsiding you with will take your breath away.

I hate that Lily fell at the brutal hands of an unstable, insecure man. Someone who thought he had the power to determine what's right and wrong and the punishment for those he deemed wrong. I hate it.

Percy. Percy was the life that John and his two boys needed after death had overruled them for so long. And while Lily may have been dead, she wasn't gone. She was still there to protect and guide her family. Leading John to her killer and leading Percy to John. Able to be at peace and rest knowin
