Brides of Gallatin County #3


A Dream to Call My Own is the third and final installment of the Brides of Gallatin County series. The story focuses on Lacy, the youngest Gallatin sister, the tomboy of the group.  Her  mother’s death in childbirth and the more recent death of her father left her with an irrational burden of guilt and Lacy has spent her life trying to prove herself  by trying to outride and outshoot every man in the area. Lacy remained blissfully unaware that her skills were not what attracted the attention of men – especially Dave Shepard. The question is “Will Lacy ever reciprocate Dave’s interest?”

Most of the characters from the first two books return in A Dream to Call My Own so the reader continues to learn more about the lives of  Beth and Nick, Gwen and Hank, and even Rafe and Cubby. All of the loose threads of the story are neatly woven together in a satisfying ending for the series. As in the first two installments,  A Dream to Call My Own is filled with enough humor, romance, and suspense to keep most readers turning the pages.


When their father is accidentally killed, the youngest of the Gallatin sisters, Lacy, becomes a woman with a mission: to find her father’s killer. Haunted by the belief that she’s failed him, Lacy is also battling a desire to have something more than just revenge, something she can’t quite figure out.

Dave Shepard, the deputy sheriff, has also been fervently trying to find the man who killed George Gallatin, in part because it’s his job but also because of the beautiful Lacy. When they are together, the tension crackles between them–both when they argue and when they kiss. Yet Dave fears he won’t be able to live up to her expectations. And while Lacy finds him frustratingly irresistible, is it truly love? Will she only fail another person?
