Releases June 25th
His brother had been the only family he had left in the world. Hayes, a long, tall and serious Texan, has long been suspicious of the blond-haired, bright-eyed Minette Raynor, who is both mysterious and beautiful. And now he’s convinced that Minette was involved in giving his brother the drugs that killed him. As far as Hayes is concerned, neither her looks nor anything else will stand in the way of him righting what is so very wrong.
Minette can’t get Hayes off her mind, or off her back. His investigation of her is a nuisance, but as an undercover DEA agent, that’s the least of her worries. Until she finds herself in great danger, and he’s the only one who can save her. Can she count on Hayes believing the truth; and saving her life?
FINALLY, finally Hayes Carson gets his own story. I’ve been reading and loving Diana Palmer for a long time, and I’ve waited patiently for Hayes to get his own story.
This was a great Jacobsville story, we got to catch up on a lot of old characters and we get to see Hayes Carson fall in love with the one person he’s blamed for his brother’s overdose for years. Minette Raynor has always been innocent but she took Hayes’ scorn in stride because she understood he needed to blame someone.
I love Hayes and his big pet iguana that no one likes and chases every woman he’s ever been interested in away. The iguana is a lot like how Hayes treats Minette at first,he doesn’t want to like her, he wants to chase her away but he needs her help. He also is extremely attracted to her.
Minette is a great character and very true to Ms. Palmer’s other female leads. She’s kind, sweet and very innocent but with a backbone of steel. She takes after her siblings and never complains about her lack of a social life and is very old fashioned.
I think that’s what I love most about Jacobsville, Texas it’s like stepping back to a simpler time, it allows the reader to enjoy the idea of old fashioned romance. Heroes and Heroines who don’t jump into bed right away, they fall in love quickly but they save intimacy for marriage.
I recommend this for fans of Diana Palmer and for fans of a simpler time filled with sweet romance!
