Fern The Montgomery Sisters Book One
Can one woman heal the heart of a lawman?
Can one woman heal the heart of a lawman? A gardener who uses plants to heal, Fern Montgomery is an outcast who refuses to be pushed out of town. When her friend is murdered and all fingers point to Fern as the only suspect, she must find a way to prove her innocence while fighting off unwanted feelings for the sheriff. Sheriff Gabe Bennett has his mind set on arresting Sarah Fuller’s killer. But his key suspect isn’t what he expected. He soon realizes there is more to the quiet gardener than he’d first anticipated. As passion blooms, Gabe is forced to face his feelings—and the woman who has stolen his heart.
Fern is one tough young woman living in an even tougher time out in the American West. This is a difficult time period for women, especially those that want to assert their independence and make a go at it on their own. Fern lives with her younger sisters and helps support them through her naturopathic healing combined with the knowledge that her father (a physician) taught her.
Because of her unique situation, Fern has gained quite a few enemies – including the local physician who will do anything to see Fern pushed out of the town, arrested or worse! When her best friend is murdered, he places the blame on Fern and she must solve the crime before she ends up being punished for something she didn’t do or even worse, pay with her life.
What she doesn’t expect? The local Sheriff to be on her side or at least willing to listen to her. He sees her for who she really is and loves every part of her. He is the first man that sees a woman for more than just raising a family. Not only does he work to solve this case but he also works at opening Fern’s heart to love.
This novel is a quick, sweet and exciting read from start to finish. I fell in love with the characters, the simple yet complicated story and the ending suits the novel perfectly. This will make for a fantastic summer time beach read!
