Although I haven’t read the entire series, each book I have read of the Belle Fourche Chronicles can easily stand on its own. The Belle Fourche Legacy is no exception.

Author Katie Trumbo has penned another page-turner with exceptional characters and a plot that kept me engaged to the very end. A perfect balance of action, conflict, angst, and romance combined with a message of faith provided an entertaining and satisfying experience that will ensure that I will be reading more of this author’s novels.

I loved having the chance to read more of Alice and Kent’s story as well as seeing how they worked out their problems. It was especially satisfying to see two feuding families finally work together to reveal the true troublemakers.

An excellent lesson about not judging by outer appearances, The Belle Fourche Legacy is a book I would highly recommend.

I voluntarily reviewed a digital copy of this book provided by the author. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.


?The thrilling conclusion to the Belle Fourche Chronicles

Alice has always been the good daughter, the one who does what everyone expects. She promised Kent Douglas she would wait for his return even though her family has fought his for the past thirty years.

Then he left and never contacted her again.

Two long years have gone by and Alice is an adult. Despite the occasional annoyance by the Douglas patriarch, they hear nothing from their neighbors. When word comes that Kent not only returned, but has been back for quite some time without contacting her, tensions rage. Alice wants revenge for her humiliation.

Kent was heavily scarred protecting Alice from a bomb, and he’s returned home with worse scars to his heart.

He went to school to become a doctor, but along the way found out the teachers thought he’d be better suited to a barn. No patient wants to look to a monster for hope. He never wanted to work on a ranch again, but now his training — the training he ran away and fought to have — will be in a barn.

He loves Alice Johlman like she’s half of his heart, but he can’t accept the failure he is and won’t force her to follow through on her promise from years before.

If only he could forget her.

Wounded hero Kent will do anything for the only woman he’s ever loved, except ask her to keep her promise. Preorder this second-chance, always loved you romance, now!
