Back Cover Blurb:

Sheriff Joaquin Obregon has spent the last year in a mountain sanatorium, recovering from an attack that cost him his fiancée and livelihood. He hates what his life has become, but can’t seem to find a way to break free. Until a nurse who never liked him decides to make his resurrection her mission.

Mary Margaret McCallahan spent a childhood in the slums of New York, so being a respected nurse at the most famous sanatorium in California should be ambition enough. But Mae has even bigger dreams—dreams that require her to leave for Los Angeles. But before she goes, she’s determined to rouse one handsome, arrogant sheriff out of his sick bed and back into the world.

Joaquin can’t imagine leaving. Mae is determined to go. The battle lines are drawn—and only love can win.

My Review:

Turner’s emotionally infused writing brings this story to life in a big way. She takes you back to old California, showing you a different side of the story. I loved how Turner brings you completely into her world, painting a picture in front of your eyes. The unique yet heartfelt storyline had me hooked while the characters actions and reactions were spot on, making it impossible to put this story down.

Mae had me in stitches. The contrast between what she things and what she says is priceless. The novella contributes a great deal to the main story, tying up some loose ends as to what happened to the Sherriff. It was fantastic to see who he really is, rather than simply as a secondary character. Together, these two bring this novella to life, making you feel like you’re sitting with old friends.

As a whole, this was a fantastic novella that truly adds to Turner’s Las Morena’s series. The way that she humanizes her characters makes them easy to relate to while the creative storyline had me hooked.
