I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This is the third book in the Once Upon a Western series. I have enjoyed each book. This book is about the third brother Wes and the newcomer, Claire Moon. Claire has moved from Houston and purchased a home in Montana bordering Wes and his family’s ranch acreage. Claire is a hermit and unwilling to leave her home or talk to people. We learn it is because one side of her face was badly scarred in a fire in her apartment complex in Houston. Several people lost their lives in the fire so she was lucky. Claire has been subjected to rude behavior due to her appearance so she tries not to leave her home. At the start, Claire is faced with some cows in her garden destroying her plants. Wes and his brother show up and get the cows away. Wes notices the damaged and returns with new plants to fix it. Claire tries to stop him, tries to avoid him, etc but they get a chance to talk and he likes her. He looks her up to see what happened to her. He is warned to not hurt her because he has a reputation as a player. He starts coming by to fix things and they spend time together. He realizes he feels something for her and she does the same. She allows him o see her scars and he doesn’t flinch, making her very comfortable around him. He convinces her to go to a town dance and things happen to upset Claire and she pulls back. There is angst, sadness, suspense and happy times in the book. I highly recommend the book, the series and Trish Milburn.
