Book Review: Keeping Hope Alive
Title: Keeping Hope Alive
Author: Fran McNabb
Stars: 4 out of 5
This is a sweet romance with a little bit of mystery that brings two people who normally never meet together. I personally enjoy romance mystery novels that have a slow build up so that the romance is believable vs instra love that in the real world would fall apart.
Casey is a strong female who can take care of herself and doesn't need anyone to look out for her. Max needs a place to take it easy while he heels from his recuperate from an injury sustained in the line of duty. They work well together and I enjoyed the simple banter in the book.
It flowed well and the ending wasn't anything explosive but it fit perfectly to the novel..
This is a sweet, easy quick read for those who want to spend a lazy afternoon.
AC from Netgalley.
I will recommend this friends and family who want a clean Romance with just a little mystery.
Casey Morgan opened Hope Ranch for troubled teens in a rural Texas community, but not everyone welcomed her. The unexplained death of her security guard and other disturbing activities prompts her to advertise for help to make her ranch the safe haven she envisioned.
The lady pointing a rifle at his head wasn’t the greeting Major Nathan “Max” Maxwell expected. Max needed the job to give him a place to finish his recuperation before returning to his Spec Ops team, but instead of the serenity he expected, he walked into a web of deceit and danger.
Torn between his growing feelings for Casey and his need to return to his team, Max searches for the strength to help the beautiful ranch director. Casey wasn’t looking for a man, especially one whose career choice didn’t mix well with her life. Would Hope Ranch give them a chance to find a future together?
