Elizabeth Madison is widow in a strange new world of Texas. Set in the Rio Grande Valley in 1886, she is right in the middle of the rumblings of war between America and Mexico. She has come to Texas to help run a newspaper with her brother Lloyd. When the Mexican rebels come in and kill her brother and kidnap her in order to iniate war with America, there is only one group of men who can save the day - the Texas Rangers.
Texas Ranger Jake Nelson not only rides in to rescue Elizabeth but is also a key player in helping her heart heal from the death of her army husband three years earlier.
This book is a nice light romance with enough battle, war and political unrest to keep it from being a 'boy meets girl, fluffy romance'.
You can order A River to Crossfrom Amazon or request it from your local library.
I received a free advance review copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers for the purpose of this review.
