Book 3 in Davalynn Spencer’s series, Front Range Brides, will be released June 4, 2020. So you’ll want to get caught up with Books 1 & 2 in this series of inspirational western romances!

Check out the first two books, starting with a review of An Improper Proposal:

An Improper Proposal

An Improper Proposal

Ya’ll better hold on to your cowboy hats because Davalynn Spencer is about to take you on the ride of your life in her latest Western novel, An Improper Proposal.

As a mail-order bride traveling across state lines to meet her intended, Mae Ann Remington never imagined she’d be robbed at gun point and widowed minutes before marrying. When a handsome cowboy, Cade Parker, ushers her away from the robbery scene to a safe haven, Mae Ann determines there is only one thing to do if she’s to survive in life…propose to Cade. Surely a handsome, single cowboy is in need of a wife, right?

Cade must be crazy to take on a city gal for a wife, but when the pretty lady proposes, it doesn’t take much for him to jump on the idea. But the minute his boots hit his land, he starts second-guessing the rash decision he agreed to. With cattle rustlers stealing from his herd, and a neighboring rancher wreaking havoc, will Cade be able to keep his new bride safe from harm’s way? And with Mae Ann so obviously in love with her deceased intended, does Cade even stand a chance at wooing her heart?

An Improper Proposal lassoed my attention from the very first paragraph. I really enjoyed meeting Cade with his charming smiles and fierce protectiveness, and Mae Ann with her quiet determination and strength. This is my first read of Davalynn’s works, but I’m quite confident to say I will be adding her previous novels to my TBR list. I’m intrigued to see where Davalynn takes her readers next in the Front Range Bride series and already itchy with anticipation for book two.

Which brings us to this next review of Book 2 in the Front Range Brides series, An Unexpected Redemption:

An Unexpected Redemption by Davalynn Spencer

An Unexpected Redemption

An Unexpected Redemption is an inspirational story about releasing the guilt we carry from past mistakes and transgressions. A powerful lesson of forgiveness that when embraced leads us to experience the freedom God’s offers. Sometimes the person we need to forgive is ourselves. Elizabeth and Garrett were two delightful characters I enjoyed getting to know through the author’s engaging writing, poetic at times. The author pens a stirring story filled with faith, humor, romance and mystery. It can be read as a standalone but characters from Book 1 make an appearance so treat yourself to reading that story first. Maggie endeared herself to me, a wise woman.

Favorite quotes:

    • “Oh, it’s not reaction, dear. It’s response, and that’s altogether different. We get to choose our responses-anger, trust, kindness, et cetera. More often than not, we just don’t think about it.”
    • “If God can make everything new again, in spite of the hard, painful parts, then we should let Him.”
