Rule number one of the Banty House is that you never turn away a stranger in need. And the three Carson sisters take it to heart when pregnant 19-year-old Ginger Andrews makes her way to Rooster, TX. Ginger wants the best life for her unborn child, one that balances stability and adventure, and she decides that’s in California. She doesn’t plan to stay in Rooster long, but planting roots soon feels unavoidable—especially after connecting with local handyman and ex-soldier Sloan Baker. Sloan spends his days helping the Carson sisters before going home to his dog and his demons. He’s suspicious of Ginger’s sudden appearance, but as he gets to know the independent Ginger, he realizes that to begin anew he must face his own shadowed past.
VERDICT Brown (Cowboy Courage) delivers a heartwarming read that twines faith, healing, and family against the backdrop of a small Texas town. Readers will be charmed by the antics of the three wily Carson sisters, while a slow-to-bloom and tender romance develops.
