If you enjoy a story that will pull at your heart-strings then this is a story for you.

Holly has moved from the city and her father and brothers to the small country town of Mulhany Crossing, she is working as a Vet assist
2.5* .This ticks a lot of the boxes I look for when I want to indulge in mega angst, and this did serve up some angst, particularly in the first half but then it seemed to lose its way. The problem reader needs to believe in the transition from a man still desperately in love with his deceased wife to being in love with the heroine. It didn't quite hang together for me and it wasn't convincing, especially as we are to believe the h is the ultimate love. The h didn't take let the H get away with ...more

Such a good book. I didn’t realize this is the 4th book in the series, I’m looking forward to reading the other books in this series. This book can be read as a stand-alone book.

This is part of the Men of Mulhany Crossing series and watch for the next book soon, Her One and Only.
Marshall Harris lost his wife and had tried so hard to ignore Holly Berrigan but it did not work out that way. He felt that he could not ever get involved as he could not protect his wife and so he did not ever want to risk that again. Marshall handiwork on saddles was well known all throughout the area and more. He was living in town as he just did not feel

Author Helen Lacey is one of my favorite authors. Her new book "The Child Between Them (Men of Mulhany Crossing #2)" was a wonderful read. I've been waiting for this story between Marshal Harris and Holly Berrigan since Helen's first book in the series "The Cattleman's Proposal." It was a quick, easy flowing read. From the title, the reader can figure out what the book is about, but there is so much story between these two that you'll enjoy their story.

Survivor's remorse and Life

It was well written with sincerity and thoughtfulness. Loss is so hard sometimes to get beyond. When the person you lose is a spouse, it's like losing part of yourself. I would recommend this book to someone that could relate to this overwhelming emotional issue of healing, acceptance, and learning that it is okay to live the rest of your own life . However that may play out.

Marshall lost his wife after several years and has an instant connection to Holly. Holly feels the same connection, but Marshall fights it believing he is being unfaithful to his late wife. I love this book more every time I read it.
Leigh Parrish
I really liked the storyline and writing style. The H tended to get on my nerves at times with his thoughts, but overall a good book and I’d like to read more in this series. I gave it 3.5 stars.
