Cassie moved her mother, and partners Manuel and Rosa from
Texas to Colorado to start a new life. They started raising
sheep in cattle country which did not set well with Raymond
Watkins. Her neighbor Jake, head of the Cattlemen's
Association knew something was not quite right when he met
Cassie. Things started happening around the double P and
Jake was always there to help Cassie put them right again.
Little by little she was melting Jake's COLORADO HEART,
however Jake was not sure he could break through all of her
defenses so they could have a future together.
Ms. Holby transports the reader back in time to the old
west. A time when cattlemen and shepherd's were bitter
enemies. This is the second book in her Angel's End
and can stand on it's own, without readers needing to have read
the first book. However, I enjoyed COLORADO HEART so much that I
have found the first and will be reading that one too. The
characters are very believable as well as likeable.
tries to be strong for her family as she deals with hatred
from one of her neighbors and also while trying to put her
life back together after a rape. Jake, while a cattle
rancher, believes that she has the right to do what she
wants on her land and will fight to the bitter end to help
her. While Raymond Watkins and his hand Baxter are the bad
guys that we love to hate.
Descriptions of scenery
throughout give readers an added bonus in picturing the
scenes as they unfold before them. Ms. Holby is a very talented
writer and I for one look forward to more enjoyable books
coming our way. Historical fiction at it's best and well
worth an afternoon sitting in a comfortable chair with a cup
of coffee to wile away a couple of hours.
To Cassie Parker, Colorado is the farthest point on earth
from the dusty, troubled life she left behind in Texas. Here
she has a birthright—her grandfather’s land not far from
town—and a chance at a promising new start. And Jake Reece
certainly is promising.
There’s never been a day in Jake’s life that he didn’t work
harder than anyone else, and he’s got a thousand head of
cattle and the ranch of his wildest dreams to prove it. Yet
winter has a way of making even the most independent of men
long for more. That must be why he’s so drawn to the
strange, secretive beauty who’s taken up on the Parker land.
But when Cassie runs afoul of the local cattleman’s
association—with Jake at the helm—what started as sparks
ignites into a full blaze. And things in Angel’s End are
about to really heat up…
